Rep. Jim Jordan took a break from rage tweeting about whether Santa Claus has to wear a mask today and freaking out about turkeys to instead attack Democrats for… the rising cost of Christmas? What??
“They’re calling it the most expensive Christmas in decades,” the antigay congressman tweeted this morning. “Thank the Democrats!”
They’re calling it the most expensive Christmas in decades.
Thank the Democrats!

Jordan didn’t offer any data or cite any sources in his tweet, nor did he clarify who “they” are declaring it the “most expensive Christmas in decades.” But that’s not the point.

The former college wrestling coach is trying distract people from the fact that the bipartisan House committee investigating January 6 has all the text messages he sent to Mark Meadows before and during the insurrection.
Among the texts sent from Jordan’s phone was one suggesting how they might overturn the 2020 election results by manipulating the words of Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 78.

After the committee released Meadows’ texts last week, Jordan admitted to sending the one offering supposed Constitutional backing for how the vice president could circumvent the Electoral College process, but he insisted it was just a forward and that he didn’t write the text himself. Because that’s so much better.
Now, the responses to his expensive Christmas tweet…
You complain about all these prices that went up during the pandemic, but refuse to get vaccinated to stop the pandemic.

I thought Christmas was about Jesus, Peace, and Love, not crass materialism, Gym?

What about those text messages

Notice is Gym always quotes “they”. Never an actual reputable data source

My family are all vaccinated & boosted
We are looking forward to Christmas.
I have noticed price going down especially gas, being a smart shopper, as always, took advantage of sales.
Keeping the spirit of Christmas in my heart is free.
I Thank Democrats & Pres. Biden for caring.

We didn’t raise the costs. We declared war in Christmas.
This twitter digest has some funny posts.
Gym is upset his “Chatty Cathy” is going to cost more. Gotta love these “Christians” they don’t even celebrate the Birth of Christ, they celebrate Santa Claus.
Of course, he is appealing to his future wrestlers.
I suppose that since prices on everything rise constantly, that this IS the most expensive Christmas, and we will most likely be able to say the exact same thing every year that follows. What’s Jordan doing to stop prices from going up? Oh, that’s right. He hasn’t done a single (blessed or damned) thing, except angry-tweet about inconsequential absurdities.
Basically nothing but a feed of gaslighting catch phrases. Oh the horror! Oh the infamy! Never any facts, sources or context. And of course the true believers don’t expect or demand it. Too stupid to care….
All I want for Christmas is a new strain of covid that is extremely virulent, has a 100% mortality rate, and that only infects Republicans.
I thought Jordan and the GOP said Democrats stopped calling it ‘Christmas?’
Sadly repukelicans have been PROVEN to be the least educated in our nation and Jordan is just another example of that truth.
Yes, because the president sets prices; he controls the truckers, freight handlers, and carriers; as well as the necessary labor to manufacture all the parts and products they create.
I hope he dies from his panic attack
Prices rose because of the Tangerine Palpatine’s lackluster efforts on Covid; he was afraid it would make him look bad politically. So this brown-noser has nothing to fight with and is resorting to throwing anything he can get his hands on at the opposition like stuffed toys, plates of spaghetti, bowls of cereal, or just a tantrum or two. What a childish maroon.
Gym. Is the cost of call boys getting to be too rich for your blood?
