Jim Jordan is having another panic attack about Christmas on Twitter

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??

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…
