Sen. Ron Johnson attended GOP fundraiser after testing positive for COVID

Hmm, RoJo the Clown doesn’t care if he kills his supporters either, apparently. 

The Daily Beast:

U.S. Senator Ron Johnson tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday. But, after finding out he had the virus, which has killed more than 220,000 Americans to date, the Wisconsin Republican still chose to attend an Oktoberfest fundraising dinner that evening.

Johnson, who didn’t reveal his diagnosis until Saturday, justified his behavior in comments to the Madison, Wisconsin Capital Times by saying he only took his mask off when it was time to address the crowd. He also insisted that he was “at least 12 feet from anybody” during his speech at the event, which was sponsored by the Ozaukee County Republican Party. It was held at the River Club of Mequon, a self-described “casually elegant private club committed to personal service.”

“I feel fine, I feel completely normal,” he said in a conference call with reporters, adding that he didn’t “stick around” to mingle at the dinner.

“How about a COVID pie to the face?!”

Ron Johnson isn’t the brightest bulb on the marquee, but surely even he knew this was a bad idea.

Boy oh boy the chickens are coming home to roost. Looks like being a Republican is a COVID comorbidity, huh?

It’s like watching that movie Outbreak, except they're all wearing suits and ties instead of hazmat gear and all the doctors are lying morons.
