Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) this week defended his attempts to undermine confidence in Covid-19 vaccines by suggesting that people should "try a bunch" of possibly dangerous therapies.
"They are doing far more than dismissing me. They're attacking me," Johnson complained before naming ivermectin, a deworming drug, as a possible Covid treatment.
"I don't care what drug will work," he said. "Try a bunch of them, particularly ones that are safe."
Johnson went on to defend the safety record of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Neither drug is approved for treating Covid.

While attacking safe & effective COVID vaccines, @SenRonJohnson continues to advocate dangerous & debunked "treatments" that he knows can cause people real harm. #WISen pic.twitter.com/8eGpqMKAeR
