Speaker Johnson Is Brutally Fact-Checked by X Community Notes After Pretending to Oppose Open Borders

  |   By Lou Dobbs Staff

In April, the House of Representatives passed three bills to hand out money to Ukraine, Israel, Gaza, and other non-U.S. involved conflict zones around the world.

The Democrats waved Ukranian flags on the floor of the United States House of Representatives as they voted to send $60 BILLION of taxpayer money to secure a foreign border.

The legislation did nothing to support America’s open southern border.

In the last month, Republicans under Speaker Mike Johnson’s leadership have given up a $1.2 trillion spending bill with more support from Democrats than Republicans, reauthorization for warrantless searches of Americans under FISA Section 702, and funding to secure foreign borders but not our own.

On Wednesday, May 1, Speaker Johnson tweeted out that the Biden Administration is so committed to their reckless open border policies that they are flying in inadmissible aliens from around the world into America.

Of course, this was just empty words coming from Mike Johnson.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) fact-checked Johnson reminding Americans that Johnson funded the open borders and funded the flights of illegals into America.

.@SpeakerJohnson, Your omnibus bill funds this. Why are you acting like you oppose it ?

All you had to do was insert one sentence prohibiting Biden from spending money for these flights.

Instead you suspended the rules so we couldn’t even offer amendments to stop this. https://t.co/Wi8k1uh2tf

Johnson even funded $3.5 billion to bring in Palestinians who support the terror attacks on Israel.

You literally just gave them 3.5 billion dollars to smuggle in migrants from Gaza with in your spending bill

Speaker Johnson was then fact-checked by community notes on X.


Johnson was just corrected by a community note, as he was acting as if he opposes Joe Biden’s actions, despite having supported the passage of the bill.

The note was later removed by the X audience – despite its accuracy.
