During a hearing in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) once again proved that not only is he one of the most clueless members of Congress, he’s also stuck in the past and cannot seem to fathom current events.
Two former members of the Trump administration — acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller — were being questioned by members of a House committee about the riots which took place on Jan. 6 and led to the deaths of five people, including a member of the Capitol Police Force. While Democratic members of Congress sought answers on why the government wasn’t better prepared for the insurrection, Jordan began ranting about Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election, asserting that Democrats had refused to accept the results when Donald Trump was elected:
“It’s not about revisionist history. It’s about the double-standard that Democrats want to have. That’s the part that bothers me most.”
Jordan was so delighted by his own idiocy that he tweeted out a clip of it:

It didn’t take long before social media karma caught up with the Ohio Republican:
Those were the most ridiculous statements I’ve ever heard. Do you really think what you are asking has anything to do with the capital riots? Or are you that ignorant?

Hmm… Last time I checked Dems never sicced a mob on the Capitol waving Clinton flags with the intent of taking hostages in a last ditch effort to overturn the election.

Gym is trying to compare a Democrat saying the election was stolen from her to Republicans using that same thought to rig states to support their party, make it harder to vote, and use a bogus company with no experience to “count” ballots.

On January 6, 2021, the former president incited an attack on our Capitol. An attack that was meant to overthrow by physical force our election. Based on LIES perpetuated by the @GOP and it’s supporters. That was sedition, not a protest.

@Jim_Jordan nobody incited mobs to invade the Capitol in 2016 during the presidential election as it happened in 2020.
There is therefore no basis of comparison.

We didn’t try to sneak in ‘illegal’ election officials-we didn’t call Secs of State and ask them to cheat-we didn’t waste $/time and file 65 lawsuits-we didn’t ask for donations and stuff it in our pockets-we didn’t call for useless vote audits-we didn’t incite an insurrection-
