Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) on Thursday was booed and mocked during a live debate against his Democratic opponent.

During the lawmaker’s debate against Wisconsin Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, he made a number of tall claims with little evidence to back his arguments. At one point during the debate, he was asked to say something admirable about Barnes — and his remarks fell flat.

“I appreciate the fact that Lieutenant Governor Barnes had loving parents,” Johnson said. “A schoolteacher father, worked third shift, so he had good upbringing. I guess what puzzles me about that is with that upbringing, why is he turning against America? Why is he finding America awful?”

That response garnered loud boos from the audience.
