Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson got a solid thrashing on Twitter when he posted a video of him calling President Donald Trump “the most transparent president in history.”
Johnson made the comments on Greta Van Susteren‘s show Full Court Press as part of a discussion of the coronavirus pandemic and Bob Woodward‘s bombshell new book, Rage, that was based on hours of recorded, on-the-record interviews with the president.
“I don’t think anything he says to any reporter, or reported in any book, really comes across as a surprise to anybody, because he’s already said it publicly,” said Johnson.
Johnson continued, giving credit to Trump for shutting down travel from China and Europe, and claiming “it’s the Democrats who weren’t taking it seriously — President Trump was.”
“As President, do you want to further panic the American public?” said Johnson, adopting an argument that was tried unsuccessfully by several Trump campaign and administration staffers. “The line between civilization and anarchy can be pretty thin in a case where the public panics. So I think it was the responsibility of the President of the United States to do what he did and I think the administration did a great job.”

I get the lying. The misplaced loyalty. Cowardice. Grandstanding. Demagoguery. That’s politics. What continues to astound me is the complete and utter lack of shame. The willingness to debase themselves for an unimpressive man they all hated four years ago. That part feels new. https://t.co/EM7UHAZ9vM

Back to reality, Donald Trump is still refusing to disclose his:
* Tax returns and financial records.
* His high school and college degrees.
* His medical records.
* His DNA.
* Phone transcripts of his phone calls with Putin.#TrumpHidTheTruth

Wow Ron you have gone full blown loony. Where are his tax returns? His Walter Reed visit? Did he sit with Mueller? Those phone calls with Putin? I could go on and on

Transparently corrupt, yes.

He’s transparent alright. He’s doing his crimes right out in the open for all to see.
