Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) seems to have a pathological need to draw attention to himself despite the fact that such attention usually comes back to bite him right on the ass.
Such is the case with a tweet Jordan sent out regarding vaccine mandates, according to Mediaite:
While many prominent conservatives have spoken out and even banned mandates against Covid-19, few have suggested there should be such prohibitions against all vaccine mandates. But on Tuesday, that’s appeared to be what Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) did, tweeting on Tuesday that his state should ban all vax mandates.
Really? All vaccine mandates should be banned? Does that include childhood vaccinations which keep our kids and school safe? Or would Jordan prefer if students were missing months of classroom time because they were constantly contracting one disease after another? Some would even wind up dead as a result, but at least the congressman would have an issue he could put on a bumper sticker.
That led Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to fire off a devastating response to Jordan, referencing the sexual abuse scandal that took place while Jordan was a wrestling coach at Ohio State University. It has been alleged that Jordan knew abuse was taking place but didn’t report it to university administrators or the authorities:
That’s what you call burning someone down to the ashes on Twitter.
Well done, Congressman Swalwell.
