Short of Mike Lindell, there’s no one out there that really believes that Donald Trump won the election in 2020. But the former president is a remarkably sad and brittle man. So lawmakers across the country have to go along with his lies to spare his feelings.
While they may be willing to pretend that Trump won the election in public, they talk much differently behind closed doors. This was recently the case with Ron Johnson. A recording was recently leaked where the Wisconsin senator explains just how Trump lost the state.
In the clip, shared by Lauren Windsor, Johnson begins, “Collectively, the state assembly candidates, just Republican state assembly candidates, got [1.661 million] votes. The eight congressional candidates also got [1.661 million], so we obviously counted enough Republican votes. The only reason Trump lost Wisconsin is that 51,000 Republican voters didn’t vote for him.”
The senator is then asked if Biden won the state, “fair and square.” He replies, “It’s certainly plausible, there’s nothing obviously skewed about the results. There isn’t!” Johnson then maintains, “[Trump] didn’t get 51,000 votes that other Republicans got, and that’s why he lost.”
