MSNBC Panel Trashes Ron Johnson, Compares Him to Joe McCarthy


A day after Meet the Press host Chuck Todd tore into Republican Senator Ron Johnson, the panel on Monday's edition of The 11th Hour With Brian Williams continued to pile on the Wisconsin Senator. After playing a clip of the exchange, host Brian Williams brought in #NeverTrumpers Charlie Sykes and Bill Kristol to join him in bashing Johnson. Williams held up Sykes as an example of "the sturdy traditional kind of Republican you guys in Wisconsin have been producing for decades and generations." He proceeded to ask Sykes, "does Senator Johnson deserve to represent the people of Wisconsin?" Sykes trashed Johnson's "deeply embarrassing performance" on Meet the Press and in the ultimate example of projection, accused him of suffering from "Trump Derangement Syndrome." According to Sykes, Johnson channeled "the former Senator from the state of Wisconsin, Joe McCarthy, in spinning out these various conspiracy theories."
