Twitter Points And Laughs At ‘Tiny’ Jim Jordan When He’s Too Short For The Podium At Trump’s Ohio Rally

Disgraced, failed, twice-impeached, one-term former president Donald Trump held one of his pathetic rallies on Saturday night in Youngstown, Ohio, and the people who spoke before he took the stage were in many ways more entertaining than the ex-president, who seems to give the same hackneyed speech these days.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) made an appearance, as did Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), and it was Jordan who wound up being the laughingstock of the evening, not for what he said, but how he looked while he was saying it.

Damn! They couldn’t afford a crate or small box for Jimbo to stand on? Granted, we knew he was short, but he appears downright infantile, nearly disappearing beneath the microphone.

That was all it took for Twitter to explode with laughter. Take a look:

Kevin McCarthy Gets Dragged On Twitter For His Bizarre ‘Electric Cord Of Liberty’ Remark

Everywhere you turned today, Republicans were lining up to loudly whine about remarks made by President Joe Biden about “MAGA Republicans” who put their loyalty to one man over doing what’s best for the country.

But it was something House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said prior to the president’s speech that left many scratching their heads. Here’s the part of his speech that was so confusing:

“The American experiment and the good people who believe in it have not said their last word. The electric cord of liberty still sparks in our hearts. The spirit of the Pilgrims, the Patriots and the Pioneers still inspire our souls. Our best days are ahead of us, not behind us. Our nation can flourish again and under a new historic Republican majority.”

Umm…what? Electric cord of liberty? Does that connect to the pedestal fan of freedom or is it only to be used for the hair dryer of justice? So many questions!

It would appear, according to HuffPost, that McCarthy was trying to reference Abraham Lincoln:

The electric cord reference seemingly harks back to an 1858 Abraham Lincoln speech in which Lincoln said the Declaration of Independence “links the hearts of patriotic and liberty-loving men together” like an electric cord through the generations.

Sure, we all learned that in history class, right? If McCarthy wanted to pay tribute to Honest Abe, he should have said that’s where he got his electric cord reference.

Instead, we’re left to wonder what the purpose of the line was, which certainly set off lots of debate on Twitter. Take a look:

Fox Host Claims Trump Never Attacked A ‘Group’ Of People – Twitter Brings The Receipts Proving Otherwise

Fox News host Sean Duffy claimed Tuesday that disgraced former president Donald Trump never went after a “group” of people as he attempted to aim criticism at President Joe Biden for calling MAGA Republicans and their philosophy “semi-fascism.”

“What we’re seeing now is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy,” Mr. Biden told donors at the fundraiser. “It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the – I’m going to say something, it’s like semi-fascism.”

“I respect conservative Republicans,” Mr. Biden said later. “I don’t respect these MAGA Republicans.”

Appearing on Fox Business with fellow Fox host Brian Kilmeade, Duffy suggested it was unwise of Biden to attack such a large group of Americans, adding:

“(Donald Trump) went after people individually, but he never went after a whole group of people. The Donald Trump voter, the MAGA voter who loves America, salutes the flag, stands for the national anthem, works hard ― Joe Biden goes after 70 million plus voters, politically, Brian, is insanity.”

Who do you supposed wiped Sean Duffy’s memory so completely that he cannot recall the things Trump said about Mexican immigrants and Muslims?

Here’s a quick refresher course for anyone who shares Duffy’s selective recall:

It didn’t take long before Twitter users also pummeled Duffy with reminders of the disgusting things the twice-impeached ex-president said, and they brought all the receipts.

The Biden Administration Lays The Ultimate Twitter Burn On Marjorie Taylor Greene For Her Hypocrisy

Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has spent a good portion of the day complaining about President Joe Biden’s plan to forgive up to $10,000 in student loan debt for millions of Americans, a plan that is being praised by many economists but almost universally panned by members of the GOP.

Greene went on Newsmax to whine about the loan forgiveness program, remarking:

“For for our government just to say, you know, ‘okay, well your debt is completely forgiven.’ Obviously they have an agenda for that they need votes in November. So the timing is a pure coincidence there as well, but it’s completely unfair and taxpayers all over the country, taxpayers that never took out a student loan, taxpayers that pay their bills and and you know, maybe even never went to college or just hard-working people. They shouldn’t have to pay off the great big student loan debt for some college student that piled up massive debt going to some Ivy League school. That’s not fair.”

The led the White House to do something it rarely does: Respond on social media, reminding Greene that she ripped the taxpayers off by taking a Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP) loan for her family business that was later written off by the U.S. Treasury.

As ProPublica has reported, Greene did indeed take $182,300 via a PPP loan on April 10, 2020. And that loan was forgiven to the tune of $183,504, with interest included.

That makes Ms. Greene one hell of a hypocrite.

But the administration wasn’t finished. They called out other Republicans who took PPP loans and had them written off, too:

Facts are terrible things, aren’t they, Marge?

Ted Cruz Humiliates Himself With A Misspelled Attempt To Troll Karine Jean-Pierre

Bless his coal-black heart, Sen. Ted Cruz just cannot resist an attempt to prove what a entitled piece of crap he is, but his latest attack on White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and the Biden administration’s cancellation of some student loan debt wound up boomeranging back on him in a very humiliating manner.

On Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced that he would be cancelling up to $10,000 of student loan debt for millions of Americans who took out those loans to attend colleges and universities.

Shortly after the president presented his plan, Cruz fired off a statement which read:

“The highest concentration of student loan debt is held by people in Washington, DC. This administration’s policy is to force blue collar workers and American families across the country to pay off the cost of a Washington bureaucrat’s college degree – it’s morally bankrupt. 

“This announcement is a gut punch to every hard working single mother who worked double shifts in order to pay for her own education, every parent who borrowed against their home to send their kid to college, Americans who sacrificed to make responsible financial decisions, and our nation’s veterans and service members who risked their lives to earn the G.I. Bill.

“Let’s be clear – there is no way to ‘cancel’ student debt. This will cost every taxpayer an average of $2100. Someone will pay the price for this policy and the price is likely to be felt by every American in the form of even higher inflation. This administration is exceeding its legal authority and illegally burdening hard-working Americans with debts they didn’t take on themselves.”

That’s complete poppycock, especially the part about it leading to higher inflation. There is no proof that even remotely suggests the president’s move will lead to higher inflation. And as for $2,100 every taxpayer will pay, why isn’t Cruz complaining about the billions in Paycheck Protection Program loans that have been written off? Because he’s a hypocrite who made sure billionaires that own fracking companies received $35 million in COVID relief funds from the taxpayers. Those billionaires also happen to be major donors to the Texas senator. How’s that for quid pro quo?

And now Ted is trying to troll Jean-Pierre, posting this on Twitter today:

Santa Clause? Hell, most 5-year-old kids know how to spell Santa Claus correctly. Is this the sort of education Ted got at Harvard Law School? If so, they should rescind his degree and demand he retake all of his courses.

Ted Cruz is a monumental asshole. He’s also a jackass who needs to go back to grammar school. Oh, and while he’s at it, it also appears he needs to delete his Twitter account before it leads to another self-own.
