You have to admit, Ron Johnson’s anti-scientific trooferism is consistent:
Sen. Ron Johnson insisted again last week that he is not a climate change denier, but CNN’s KFile found video of him from just weeks earlier telling a Republican group that it is “bullsh*t.””I don’t know about you guys, but I think climate change is — as Lord Monckton said — bullsh*t,” the Wisconsin Republican said, without uttering the expletive but mouthing it, and referring to British conservative climate change denier Lord Christopher Monckton. “By the way, it is.”
Johnson, a member of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, continued that “there are more and more scientists” writing books “just laying this to waste” and questioned why the US was focused on the climate crisis at all. “What are we doing here? Well, we’re killing ourselves,” said Johnson, adding, “it’s a self-inflicted wound.”
I hate to break it to Ron, but Sean Hannity’s second highest-paid intern is not in fact a scientist.
It should be noted that this extraordinarily stupid man with views that are literally getting his supporters killed has now won two state-wide elections in the same state that also elects Tammy Baldwin. Wisconsin contains multitudes.
