idiot Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) suggested in a recent interview that Covid vaccines “may” give people AIDS. Johnson sat down with Todd Callender, whom the Wisconsin Examiner described as an “anti-vaccine attorney”.
Callender shared a wild theory with the senator: Covid shots are intentionally spreading HIV/AIDS to people who receive them. Callendar called the actions of the FDA “criminal,” and suggested action be taken against public health authorities. Johnson replied, “You’ve gotta do one step at a time, everything you say may be true, but right now the public [wrongly] views the vaccines as largely safe and effective, that vaccine injuries are rare and mild.”
This is not the first time Johnson, who is up for re-election this fall, has spread conspiracy theories about COVID-19 or connected the pandemic to AIDS. In December, on world AIDS day, Johnson said in an appearance on Fox News Host Brian Kilmeade’s radio show that Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, “overhyped” the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.
Congrats Ron for winning Most Hated Republican of the Day, surprisingly taking it from Samuel Alito.
It was tough but you did it. Scumbag.
