Miami is a long way from Wisconsin, but that hasn’t stopped House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from referring to the state’s top Senator, Ron Johnson, as Don Johnson’s representative.
A Democrat from California at its weekly news conference on Thursday slammed Johnson, the Republican, calling him “taking the lead” in the Republican Party’s response to the January 6 riots.
“Don Johnso n – Was his first name Don? What was he Ron?” Pelosi told reporters.
Speaking of the mingling between a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump and the pastel star in “Miami Vice,” Pelosi corrected herself with a laugh.
Senator, let me call him. Pelosi said, “It’s not a Miami Vice President or anything like that.” Don Johnson.
“It appears that Ron Johnson is taking the lead in defining the scope of the way we look at protecting our country from domestic terrorism,” she added.
Twitter users captured the slippage quickly – or slightly.

The post said, “Well, a slip of the tongue, but we all know Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) from Miami Vice has been cooler than any politician and has put the bad guys in jail to boot.” “He made five o’clock shades, no socks, pastel clothes, all hot.”
Johnson, the senator, tried to de-escalate the riots in the Capitol, questioning whether the mobs were actually armed and claiming that “agents of incitement” were behind the fight and not supporters of Trump.
During the press conference, Pelosi criticized Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who described her proposal to appoint a committee on January 6 to examine riots “partisan by design.”
She said McConnell was “taking a page from Senator Johnson’s book”.
