Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” beloved that Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) pretended to take a nonexistent cellphone name when reporters peppered him with questions on a slate of pretend electors that his workplace pushed final 12 months.
“I’m on the cellphone,” Johnson snapped on the time.
“No, you’re not,” the reporter fired again. “I can see your display.”
In response to “The Late Present,” Johnson’s time would have been a lot better spent dialing an lawyer:
If a journalist asks about your coup, who you gonna name?
You might ring a good friend, however you’ve got so few.
What you gonna dial?
I gained’t fall for no hoax.
Might’ve known as Moviefone about “Prime Gun II.”
As an alternative who did you name?
Oops, nobody! Wow.
Faux elector sham is uncovered, you’re screwed.
Now who must you name?
Johnson stated he had nothing to do with the pretend slate of electors. Nevertheless, texts revealed that his chief of workers tried to rearrange a gathering during which Johnson would hand-deliver the slate to then-Vice President Mike Pence.
Now Johnson is claiming “some workers intern” wished an envelope delivered to Pence and his workplace tried to rearrange it, however he had not thought who despatched it or what it was, according to The Washington Post.
In response, Colbert has named Johnson the “dumbest person ever to take a seat in the US Senate.”
