Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson launched a bizarre rant during his appearance on Fox News and claimed the Covid pandemic was “pre-planned” by anonymous elites.
The Republican appeared on the news channel alongside presenter Maria Bartiromo and spoke about the pandemic and vaccines.
During the interview, Johnson savagely claimed the pandemic was planned as part of an ongoing plan to deprive Americans of their freedom.
The 68-year-old said: ‘We are walking down a very dangerous path, which has been charted and planned by an elite group of people who want to take full control of our lives.
This is what they are doing little by little. They really risk taking away all our sovereignty. But people need to be aware of the dangers of the moment.
On Friday, the Republican senator spoke to Fox anchor Maria Bartiromo about the pandemic and vaccines
He said: “Doctors I have dealt with believe that hundreds of thousands of Americans have lost their lives because they were denied early treatment.”
“They were turned down because the FDA sabotaged ivermectin by saying ‘come on y’all, you’re not a cow, you’re not a horse.’
“It was a noble award-winning drug that could have saved hundreds of thousands of lives.
Johnson continued, “This is all pre-planned by an elite group of people. It is very concerning in terms of what happened, what is happening, what continues to be planned for our loss of freedom.
“It needs to be exposed, but unfortunately there are very few people in Congress who are willing to take a look at it, they’ve all been pushing for a vaccine.”
“So many people just don’t want to admit they’ve been wrong and they’re going to do whatever they can to make sure they’re not wrong.
“We are up against a very powerful group of people here Maria.”
Following her Fox interview, Johnson claimed on her Twitter page that the FDA had “quietly” approved the use of ivermectin.

Ivermectin has become infamous during the Covid pandemic due to claims by fringe doctors that it could be an appropriate treatment, and even an alternative to vaccination, despite the lack of credible evidence
Johnson was referring to an ongoing legal battle between the FDA and three doctors who accuse the agency of infringing on their right to prescribe ivermectin as a treatment for Covid.
The FDA has not approved the drug to fight Covid-19, but has acknowledged that doctors have the power to prescribe if they wish.
During the pandemic, the senator had made multiple podcast and radio appearances pushing ivermectin as a treatment for Covid.
At the time, Johnson advocated for the use of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin as treatments.
Ivermectin is commonly used to deworm cattle and is approved for use in humans to treat parasitic infections.
The drug became popular among conservatives after commentators and touted the anti-parasitic drug as a miracle cure for coronavirus and other illnesses.
The Food and Drug Administration has not approved its use in the treatment of COVID-19 and warns that misuse of ivermectin can be harmful or even fatal.
