This Week In Crazy: Atheists Ruined Columbus Day, And The Rest Of The Worst Of The Right
2. Ron Johnson
When it comes to politicizing a crisis, however, it’s tough to top Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI).
During a Wednesday appearance on Newsmax TV, Johnson was asked about an already-debunked theory that ISIS terrorists are planning to infect themselves with Ebola, then travel to the U.S. to cause an epidemic.
“Well, it’s certainly something I’ve been thinking about ever since this Ebola outbreak started,” Johnson said. “We should do everything possible to defend ourselves against that possibility, because I think that is a real and present danger.”
Maybe if Johnson really wants to protect the nation from Ebola terrorists, he should reconsider those across-the-board 20 percent budget cuts.
