Sen. Ron Johnson goes down in flames during an appearance on Meet the Press as host Chuck Todd tells him to stop trying to make “President Trump feel better,” as he tried to defend Donald Trump seeking foreign interference in the 2020 presidential election.

The Wisconsin GOP senator tried to defend Trump’s asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up dirt on Joe Biden by bringing up the Russia investigation. Todd also got him on record to say that he did not trust the CIA or the FBI because they investigated the Trump campaign for collusion with Russia.

This exchange comes as a new Fox News poll finds the top Democratic candidates beating Donald Trump in Wisconsin. Biden leads Trump by nine points, 48% to 39%, while Bernie Sanders leads by five points, 45% to 40% and Elizabeth Warren beating him by four points, 45% to 41%.
