Known for his "bizarre" comments and wild insinuations, during a 2010 House Armed Services Committee meeting, Johnson questioned now-retired Adm. Robert Willard, commander of the US Pacific Fleet, about the effects of US troops on the island of Guam.

“My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize,” a straight-faced Johnson asked the commander, who assured the congressman that that wasn’t a concern.

"Rep Hank Johnson (D-GA) said he is 'suspicious of the timing' of Biden's classified documents story. He also said he is 'aware of the fact' that things can be 'planted in places and discovered conveniently...that may be what has occurred here.' Social media reacted to this and said "Bold statement. Very Interesting". Another reacted, "Hank Johnson? Do you mean the idiot from Georgia who actually said he was afraid that the island of Guam would capsize?"

"Why would anyone take this dumbass seriously. He thought a military presence on Guam would cause it to capsize," a Twitter user wrote while reacting to a news piece about confidential documents. One reacted with a laughing emoticon, "I remember that." while another user asked, "why is he in the government."

In 2019, Johnson compared then-President Donald Trump to Hitler during a speech to the NAACP. "Hitler was accepting of violence towards the achievement of political objectives...Americans, particularly black Americans, can’t afford to make that same mistake about the harm that could be done by a man named Hitler or a man named Trump,” he said, as per the New York Post.

In his biography on the website, it says, Hank who is serving his eighth term in the US House of Representatives, is "named one of the most effective Democrats in Congress by a University of Virginia and University of Vanderbilt study, Rep. Johnson has proven his ability to get things done." Moreover, "Prior to taking his seat in Congress in 2006, Rep. Johnson practiced criminal defense law in Georgia for twenty-seven (27) years. He served twelve (12) years as a magistrate judge and five (5) years as a county commissioner." Johnson is married to DeKalb County Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson and has two children.
