Poor Jim Jordan. Ever since the coronavirus pandemic began, the Republican congressman from Ohio has been trying to spout the GOP/Trump line about how it’s not all that serious and will disappear one day just as quickly as it first appeared in early 2020.

As a matter of fact, Jordan — along with a majority of Republicans in Congress — simply cannot understand what all the panic is about, and yet 437,000 Americans have died from the virus, and thousands more continue to die each and every day.

So perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of us that Jordan is now enraged that Dr. Anthony Fauci is suggesting that wearing two protective masks might be a good idea with new COVID-19 variants making their way to the United States from the United Kingdom and South Africa:

Clearly, Jordan doesn’t realize or appreciate that new evidence often comes to the forefront when it comes to disease, and when those facts present themselves, it may become necessary for us all to take new precautions as a safety measure. That’s how these things work.

But for the science deniers in the GOP like Jim Jordan, new information is a bad thing and shouldn’t be shared with the public.

All of this led to angry reactions to Jordan’s tweet on social media:
