Hahaha I’ve come to realize that Johnson is just as BAD as Trump and he needs to go. The people of WI really need to wake up. The whole state looks like a wack job!!!! He is A RUSSIAN OPERATIVE. He wants AMERIKKA! Sick F. Most of the GOP have run amok with their weird remarks and behaviors..unfortunately these people will be hanging around for awhile!

He’s a dangerous fool. RonJohnsonWI Wonder why Megan has nothing to say about this guy Two enlistments during the Vietnam Era and never dreamed that one day I would witness treasonous GOP thugs assault our nation's Capitol. Republicans seem just OK with it. 7/18/2015 Trump publicly insulted POWs and veterans. I have voted for some Republicans. Never again!

Rojo continues to be an embarrassment to Wisconsin time to votehimout This guy is crazy. And to think he is in the senate. People in Wisconsin should screen their politician before they vote. Unfortunately people vote party no matter how bad that person is. Not smart. Next should be Twitter then Facebook.

Hopefully his constituents will see how his ignorance and blind loyalty to an ex-president with similar rhetoric contributed to the deaths of 600,000 Americans and this time around it will help contribute to his defeat in 2022.

YouTube Suspends GOP Sen. Ron Johnson For COVID-19 'Misinformation'The Wisconsin Republican's one-week ban from uploading videos stems from his comments to the Milwaukee Press Club event, which were posted on the platform. That’s right, I remember he strode the halls of the Capitol during the Jan 6 tourist incursion. Had full confidence in not being harmed! As opposed to Pence etc... Aww, is that all? They only sensor Republicans! 🙄

Do you know what concerns me? Ron Johnson He is a hazard. Also an embarrassment to the GOP and Wisconsin. 7 days! 🙄 Amen, about time, PERMANENTLY I hope. This man sits on several Senate committees. Do you trust someone like him running the affairs of the Country? He’s as kooky as Marjorie Greene. The people who keep him in office must be just as kooky. We need help. We’re not evolving. Republican’s are acting foolish and reckless

Wait, so crystals don't work? Who's going to buy my bedazzled masks now? How dare he ………….. this does not fit the liberal narrative GOOD! Ron’s Johnson thinks we’re all as stupid as Ron’s Johnson; so does whoever sends him scripts from the Kremlin. A US senator makes an unwieldy dildo, actually.

Ron Johnson’s account on Friday after the Wisconsin Republican posted his recent remarks about alternative therapies to treat Covid-19. good Seven days? That's a slap on the wrist.

He should be suspended permanently spreading outright misinformation that could potentially kill someone is not to belabor the obvious very dangerous to say the least.

What to Know About Vitamin D and COVID-19One study found that high levels of vitamin D might lower your risk for severe COVID-19 infection, but how much can it help? What we know so far: In March 2020 medical professionals knew this (as well as other options) but were being barred by health institutions from speaking out about it. Mine told me anyway. 😌 First it does, then it doesn’t. Now it does again. This sort of vacillation feeds the anti-vaxxer frenzy.

Cruise Lines Wrestle With Florida Ban on Vaccine PassportsA standoff between Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the cruise industry over whether to require passengers to show proof of Covid-19 vaccines is coming to a head as some cruise lines prepare to relaunch ships from their top ports in the state Launch somewhere else. This sounds to me like the press trying to stir up a controversy between DeSantis and the Cruise industry… Just boycott Florida.
