Ah, there is nothing like the Republican caucus booing a journalist for asking a question that really needed to be asked. D.C.-based advocacy group Courage For America took the moment when ABC's Rachel Scott asked newly minted Speaker of the House Mike Johnson about his leading efforts to overturn the last Presidential election and turned it into an ad. All the Republicans boo in an attempt to drown out Scott's question.
Just as Trump's celebratory Rose Garden event after House Republicans passed a health care bill undermining protections for people with pre-existing conditions became a rallying cry for Democrats in the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats are hoping this moment—showing a predominantly white GOP caucus shouting down questions about the efforts to overturn the 2020 election—will come to define the GOP in 2024.
"Congressman Mike Johnson is a tried and true MAGA extremist and election denier who helped lead the charge to overturn the 2020 election results. He has no business being Speaker," said José Morales Jr., a spokesperson for Courage for America.
