A brand new advert shines a stinging mild on Congressman Mike Johnson, a beforehand little-known Republican from Louisiana who’s turn into the most recent speaker of the House.
Non-profit group Braveness for America’s 44-second spot begins with footage of GOP lawmakers this week booing a reporter who requested about Johnson’s backing of former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election end result.
The video then asks, “Who’s Speaker Mike Johnson?” earlier than answering that he “led the cost” to overturn Trump’s defeat and is a “MAGA extremist,” “election denier” and “a mistake as speaker.”
Watch the advert right here:
On its web site, Courage For America describes itself as “a council of proud People talking out towards an extremist agenda that places cash and energy over our rights and freedoms.”
Spokesperson José Morales Jr. instructed The Daily Beast: “Congressman Mike Johnson is a tried and true MAGA extremist and election denier who helped lead the cost to overturn the 2020 election outcomes. He has no enterprise being Speaker.”
On X, the platform previously often called Twitter, the group described Johnson as “excessive and anti-democracy.”
Johnson gained election to the position following a chaotic three weeks for Republicans after their ouster of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and the failures of Reps. Steve Scalise (La.), Jim Jordan (Ohio) and Tom Emmer (Minn.) to safe sufficient assist on the House ground.
