Chuck Todd Rips Ron Johnson Apart, Calls Him Out To His Face For Spreading Election Conspiracies
Over the weekend, NBC’s Meet the Press host Chuck Todd confronted Republican Senator Ron Johnson for choosing to tend to Donald Trump and lie to the American people about the election being unfair and rigged against the president.
“You’re the arsonist here,” Todd told Johnson. “President Trump is the arsonist here. You started this fire and now you’re saying whoa, look at this, oh my god, all these people believe what we told them because you didn’t have the guts to tell the truth that this election was fair.”
Johnson then tried to claim that the media was actually the liars, despite multiple courts (including the Supreme Court) shutting down Trump’s claims of voter fraud.
“Just because you have somebody say it didn’t make it true,” Todd later said, adding: “You got to ask yourself, when you tell people a million times that something was stolen or something was fraud and then they believe it, I think you need to look in the mirror.”
“I didn’t criticize Democrats when they were talking about potential hacking of voting machines, but now it’s quackery and conspiracy theory,” Johnson replied. “That’s the problem, Chuck. There is a double standard, and we’re not being transparent and dismissing the concerns of tens of millions of American. Again, I didn’t light this fire. This fire was lit over four years ago and … you have destroyed the credibility of the news media by your bias.”
