EMP Weapons Are The Least Of RoJo's Problems: Regrets And Photoshop

Jul 23, 2015

Ron Johnson and friends just got caught — twice. 
They can’t photoshop their way out of this one. RoJo started his week by calling inner city kids idiots, then he hosted a “clown show” on EMPs, and now a pro-RoJo Super PAC is using (badly) photoshopped pictures of the president in campaign ads. Looks like being “schooled” by a MIT physicist is going to be the best part of RoJo’s day.
A new ad touting Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson’s opposition to President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran features a photoshopped image of President Obama shaking hands with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, as well as a still from a propaganda video produced by ISIS.
The ad’s background images include a shot from an ISIS-produced video, footage of a smoldering World Trade Center, and an image of the president shaking hands with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
Obama and Rouhani have never met, however. The photograph was created from a image of Obama meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan in 2011.
When asked for comment, Restoration PAC spokesman Dan Curry told BuzzFeed News, “I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re saying that’s a photoshop — can you explain what you’re talking about?”

Washington Post: Sen. Ron Johnson regrets referring to ‘idiot inner city kids’

On a local radio show, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) made a passing reference to liberals’ indifference to “those idiot inner city kids.”
He was talking about the issue of school choice, and what he and other Republicans view as the hypocrisy of President Obama and other Democrats sending their children to the best private schools while not wanting other families to have the same opportunity.
“It’s unbelievable to me that liberals, that President Obama, of course he sends his children to private school, as did Al Gore, and Bill Clinton and every other celebrated liberal,” Johnson said Monday on 1310 WIBA–Milwaukee. “They just don’t want to let those idiot inner city kids that they purport to be so supportive of…they don’t want to give them the same opportunity their own kids have. It’s disgraceful.”
We asked Johnson’s office what he meant, and at first they thought we must have misheard him. We didn’t. Then we heard from the senator himself. (He stepped away from the Iran nuclear deal hearing where he had just schooled Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, an MIT nuclear physicist, on electromagnetic pulse weapons.)
We asked him if he really believes liberals view inner city children as “idiots.”
“It wasn’t the best word,” he said.
