There are few Republicans who are more disgustingly sycophantic toward failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump than Rep. Jim Jordan.
So it should come as no surprise that ever since the FBI served a search warrant at the disgraced ex-president’s Mar-a-Lago golf resort on Aug. 8, Jordan has been saying and tweeting out all sorts of specious allegations, suggesting that the Justice Department is out to get Trump, the FBI is targeting the Donald, and somehow all of this is an extension of the Russia investigation which was looked at by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
But a tweet Jordan sent out today is getting him pelted with enormous social media blowback, mainly because he’s asserting that Donald Trump is the victim despite the fact that he’s the one who was hoarding top secret documents in violation of federal law.
Here’s the tweet:
Read that again and see if you can follow Jordan’s twisted logic. If there was someone at Mar-a-Lago who told the FBI Trump had thousands of classified documents, then “they” spied on Donald before he was president, while he was president, and after he left office. Does that make sense to anyone other than a mindless MAGA minion who thinks Trump is the reincarnation of Jesus?
Also, why is it a bad thing that someone decided to inform the feds about the fact that Trump had secretive papers he should have turned over before he left the White House? Isn’t that actually a very good thing because those files are now under wraps instead of floating around for a hostile foreign power to get ahold of and use against the United States?
Not to Jim Jordan. To him, it confirms his paranoid theory that “they” are out to get Trump. That, of course, completely overlooks the fact that if Trump hasn’t done anything wrong, he has nothing to worry about.
Let’s see what Twitter has to say about the matter.
Jim Jordan never runs out of ways to plant his foot right in his mouth, does he?
