Jim Jordan Refuses To Wear Mask At House Hearing, Accuses Dems Of Using Coronavirus To Bring Down Trump

Republican congressman Jim Jordan, who has been one of Donald Trump’s biggest supporters in Congress, tried to pull another PR stunt by spreading another pro-Trump conspiracy theory during a hearing this week before the House Rules Committee.

According to Cleveland.com, Jordan accused Democrats of plotting against Trump. The GOP lawmaker “denounced a Democratic proposal to create a select panel to oversee the federal coronavirus response as nothing more than an election-year effort to discredit President Donald Trump.”

“This is just one more attempt by the Democrats to go after the president,” declared Jordan, who argued that eight different entities including several other House of Representatives committees are already scrutinizing disbursement of several trillion dollars in federal aid to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on Americans.

Cleveland.com reported the following:

Jordan argued at the Wednesday Rules Committee meeting that the measure should not come before the full House of Representatives. He said the fact that Pelosi asked South Carolina Democratic Rep. James Clyburn to chair the panel shows it “is going to look out for the Democrats’ candidate for President, Joe Biden,” because Clyburn is Biden’s “biggest supporter,” who helped him clinch the Democratic party’s presidential nomination by endorsing Biden before his state’s primary.

The Ohio lawmaker got into a heated exchange with Maryland Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin, who called out the Republican for not wearing a mask at the hearing.

Trump Spent Memorial Day Tweeting About Golf, Comparing Himself To Obama And Threatening a Democratic Governor

Published

President Donald Trump spent most of the Memorial Day on Twitter defending himself from charges that he was golfing as the U.S. neared the horrific 100,000 coronavirus death milestone.

Trump, who frequently attacked then-president Barack Obama for golfing, has spent more than $130 million in taxpayers’ money on golfing trips. And he couldn’t take the heat after the campaign of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden released an ad pointing out his golfing trip as the COVID-19 death toll mounts.

On Sunday, he responded to the ad, comparing himself (favorably, of course) to Obama:

On Monday, Memorial Day, he jumped on Twitter again, this time blaming the “truly deranged” media for supposedly elevating the story. “[Obama] also played moments after the brutal killing by ISIS of a wonderful young man,” Trump said. “Totally inappropriate – and it was me who shattered 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. I was left a MESS!”

Trump also threatened to pull the Republican National Convention from Charlotte, citing North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s “shutdown mood” and noncommitment to saying whether or not a convention for tens of thousands of people in the state’s largest city will be able to take place in August.

Aside from defending his hobbies, Trump’s Memorial Day weekend of tweeting included retweeting several posts by a former congressional candidate with a history of making racist and sexist remarks about black women.
