Former President Barack Obama has not been in office for over four years now, yet Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) ignorantly attacked him in a tweet that backfired.
Republicans are vehemently anti-mask and anti-vaccine, and because that message is falling on deaf ears and hurting them in the polls, they are trying to paint Democrats as hypocrites in any way they can even if it’s a desperate play.
Such was the case on Monday when Jordan complained about Obama’s birthday celebration. Jordan complained that Obama was not wearing a mask at the event and whined that there are different rules for kids at school, suggesting that Democrats don’t follow the rules but expect everyone else to do so.
President Obama didn’t have to wear a mask at his birthday party.
But your kids have to at school.
Rules for thee, but not for me.

The problem is that Obama has been vaccinated and he requested that everyone in attendance is vaccinated. Furthermore, the event was held outdoors and negative COVID tests were confirmed at the gate.
Jordan’s attack is also hypocritical since opposing masks in school is the real danger to children, who are being infected by the Delta strain of the virus. Some have died. Children under 12 cannot be vaccinated yet, leaving them vulnerable to the virus. That’s why they need to wear masks.
In addition, Jordan has been accused of turning his back on former students who were molested under his watch as a wrestling coach prior to his political career. So he’s not qualified to talk about protecting students.
Twitter users buried him in response.
President Obama is fully vaccinated.

Obama’s birthday attendees were all vaccinated. Kids can’t get vaccinated yet.

Kids under 12 aren’t vaccinated and are indoors.
You’re a moron, Jim. A damn moron.

Party was outside. Everybody was required to give negative COVID test and be vaccinated. Children under 12 can’t get vaccinated. Isn’t there a penalty for failing to report sexual abuse?

If only kids could get vaccinated like adults right Jim? Have you been vaccinated yet or are you just planning on spreading Covid to all of the unvaccinated school children?

These Neanderthals didn’t have to wear a mask at the Neanderthal convention either. You may have been there. Your comments? pic.twitter.com/aZKHIeTCfi

He didn’t have to wear a mask because he is VACCINATED. As were all of his guests. 💉
Your kids under 12 are not vaxxed. They need to be protected.
Common sense for we, but not for THEE, Gym. 🤡

Getting advice from you on safety measures for our kids at school would be like getting cooking recipes from Jeffrey Dahmer. pic.twitter.com/CAmn1EkCSu
