Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) thought he’d crank up the GOP’s patented “war on Christmas” talking point in order to take a cheap shot at Dr. Anthony Fauci, but his attempt only wound up getting him mocked and humiliated on social media.

According to HuffPost, Fauci — the nation’s leading medical expert on infectious diseases — is begging Americans not to congregate for the upcoming Christmas holiday because it could wind up spreading the novel coronavirus and causing millions of new infections:

“Fauci has warned that Americans should ‘avoid travel and avoid congregate settings’ over the holidays in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus, which is raging across the country and has killed more than 275,000 Americans.”

That prompted Jordan to tweet in response:

Here we go again: Using idiocy to drown out scientific evidence.

That was all it took for Twitter users to remind Jordan that the number of daily COVID-19 cases, hospital admissions and deaths are rising precipitously, with thousands of Americans dying each and every day as result of the pandemic:
