Republicans used to have a pretty standard list of things that they stood for. And then Donald Trump came along and the list had to change. At the least, it got much more absurd.
During a panel discussion on MSNBC on Sunday, the topic moved to COVID-19 and Ivermectin. Jennifer Rubin pointed out Ron Johnson as a GOP lawmaker who has completely gone off the deep end.
The Washington Post scribe said of the Wisconsin senator, “He’s talking about nothing and this is complete crap coming from him. He never used to be this insane. He was a businessman and for years he operated like a kind of fiscal conservative, sort of normal Republican, but no more. He has jumped upon the Trump train, and let me be perfectly clear, tomorrow from a Republican president, he is killing people.”
“People listen to them. They are dissuaded from taking a life-saving vaccine. He is contributing to death, he is not pro-life. He’s helping to kill people, and he should be ashamed. I would hope the people of Wisconsin, if he decides to run for reelection, he hasn’t quite decided, throw him out on his ear. We’re reduced to one party willing for people to die so they can pay homage to this lunatic and keep their seats. It’s nothing short of disgraceful.”
