Rightwing Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) claimed a debate viewers burst into laughter throughout certainly one of his solutions final week as a result of faculty college students within the crowd had been fed “leftist propaganda.”
Someone dared to “let in” faculty college students to look at the televised debate at Marquette University final Thursday in Milwaukee, Johnson complained Sunday to Fox News host Brian Kilmeade.
“My guess … college students” within the crowd laughed at him, Johnson mentioned.
“Let’s face it, our colleges today aren’t exactly teaching history. They’re really not talking about the relevant things that students really oughta learn in college,” Johnson continued. “They’re being taught leftist propaganda.”
The debate viewers burst out laughing when Johnson claimed at one level that he had been “set up” by the FBI.
Johnson was responding to an assault by his Democratic opponent Mandela Barnes, Wisconsin’s lieutenant governor, who identified that the senator was warned by the FBI in 2019 that Kremlin operatives had been feeding him disinformation in a plot to show him right into a Russian asset.
“We cannot trust Sen. Johnson to protect democracy abroad because we can’t even trust Sen. Johnson to protect democracy here at home,” Barnes charged.
Johnson’s retort, which drastically amused the viewers: “The FBI set me up with a corrupt briefing and then leaked that to smear me.”
Johnson is extensively thought to be probably the most weak senator within the upcoming election, however he has not too long ago been inching forward in polls after specializing in crime.
