MSNBC’s Chuck Todd criticized Republican Senator Ron Johnson for his participation in the attempt to sabotage the up-coming certification of the 2020 election results on January 06. Johnson is among the many Senators who have vowed to protest the count.
Every case that the Trump team has brought through the courts has been laughed out – even by Trump appointed judges – thoroughly humiliating and frustrating the president and his lawyers who insist that they have tons of evidence that would “fill a library,” even though they have failed multiple times to produce a single piece of evidence from that library that fraud took place.
Since the election results, Trump and certain Republicans have insisted that he won by a landslide, that it was unfairly stolen from him, and that a majority of Americans have serious questions about the election results.
“You guys have made an allegation about widespread fraud,” Todd said. ““You guys have failed to offer specific evidence of that fraud, and yet you’re demanding an investigation into the allegations that there was fraud. Don’t you guys see the irony there, Senator?”
“The irony that there was fraud, not being able to prove any fraud, despite numerous opportunities to prove there was fraud, both in and out of court, and continuing to insist that there was fraud and claiming not to be given the opportunity to prove it. That irony.”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, Chuck,” Jonson responded. “There was a conspiracy to defraud Donald Trump from the presidency, plain and simple. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it.”
“I don’t know it, Senator.”
“”Sure you do, Chuck. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it. It’s an indisputable fact, a fact that we have indeed proven time and time again, in and out of court.”
“No you haven’t.”
“Sure we have. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it.”
“No, I don’t know, Senator, show me the evidence.”
“I don’t have to show you the evidence. We’ve already proven it. It’s a fact. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it.“
“Alright, listen, you’re beginning to sound like a scratched record here,” Todd interrupted. “You guys started a fire and now you’re saying, ‘Whoa! All these Dingleberries believe what we told them!’ Because you didn’t tell them the truth, that the election was fair.”
“Again, I don’t know what you’re talking about, Chuck. We didn’t start a fire, we simply said the election was stolen by Sleepy Joe, who couldn’t stay awake if the world were coming to an end. But apparently he stayed awake long enough to make sure he could steal it from President Trump, and I suspect that once he gets into the White House, he’ll fall asleep immediately and we won’t hear a peep out of him for four years.”
“Alright, Senator, listen, I’ve had enough of this, you’re not making any sense.”
“I’ve had enough too,” Johnson said.
Todd went off on Johnson for “carrying a lot of crazy conspiratorial water for Trump,” and asked him if this was about trying to “curry favor” with the president.
The Senator repeated the tired claims of voter fraud, and Todd interrupted with, “You can’t make claims that haven’t been proven true!”
Johnson defended the hearing he held and said he was addressing concerns “millions of Americans have.”
“There are plenty of Dingleberries who believe 9/11 was an inside job. Did Joe Biden fake 9/11and the moon landing too?”
“Well. it certainly is a possibility,” Johnson said. “But he sure as hell did steal the election, you know it, I know it, everybody knows it.”
“Oh for God sake, change the record, Senator.“
