If it wasn’t so frightening, it would be hard not to laugh at Trump sycophant Sen. Ron Johnson’s reaction to Richard Barr’s statement that there is no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.

To support Trump’s con job, Johnson wants Barr to show evidence that there is no evidence. Can we ask Johnson to show us evidence that he is not a serial killer?

This is the same Ron Johnson who wasted taxpayer money and a year’s time running a Senate investigation into Hunter Biden in order to dig up political dirt. And solicited testimony from shady Ukranians with ties to Russian mafia. Their report, by the way, says there was no evidence of wrongdoing by Biden.

One malignant narcissist in particular long ago perfected the art of the con. Years ago, it was a central part of his business strategy. Over the past five years, it has become a tool to mask his incompetence.

Surveys suggest that somewhere between 30% and 40% of Republican voters still believe that President Obama was born in Kenya. If that many people can be duped into believing something as ludicrous as this, one can understand why so many people will fall for the totally baseless claims of “rigged elections” and “massive voter fraud” that have been put forward by Trump’s legal team clown car.

There’s only one fraud that’s being perpetrated, here, and an alarming number of people are falling for it.
