Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) pointed the finger at Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) vote against Trumpcare on McCain’s mind tumor, however he didn’t mean it like a more extensive comprehension of medicinal services.
“We got a call from Paul (Ryan) and he guaranteed us that thin nullification was not going to pass the House it would need to go to gathering,” Johnson said amid a Tuesday radio meeting on AM560 “Chicago’s Morning Answer.”
“Once more, I’m not going to represent John McCain — he has a mind tumor at the present time — that vote happened at 1:30 in the morning, some of that may have calculated in,” he went on.
The host at that point inquired as to whether he “truly” felt that McCain’s cerebrum tumor made McCain not bolster the Trump bill and Johnson appeared to stammer in his reaction.
“Once more, I-I-I don’t know precisely what — we truly thought — and again I don’t need represent any representative,” he asserted. “I truly thought John would vote yes to send that to gathering at 10:30 around evening time. By around 1, 1:30, he voted no. So you have converse with John in wording what was at the forefront of his thoughts.”
As indicated by CNN, McCain’s representative Julie Tarallo called the announcement “odd” and “profoundly sad that Senator Johnson would scrutinize the judgment of a partner and companion. Congressperson McCain has been extremely open and clear about the purposes behind his vote.”
The web was not as kind. Here are the most ruthless tweets impacting Johnson beneath:
