Jim Jordan is having a craptastic birthday

It’s Jim Jordan‘s birthday. Happy birthday, Gym!

The former college wrestling coach/homophobic congressman turns 58 years old today and he’s celebrating his big day by getting trolled on Twitter.

Here’s what people are saying…

Jordan has been dodging the January 6 committee for weeks, refusing to comply with the panel’s request that he provide information about his communication with ex-president Donald Trump in the days leading up to the deadly attack. (He claims he “can’t remember.”)

This week, the birthday boy went on Laura Ingraham‘s show to whine about how the committee has been working with waaaay too many former prosecutors for his liking.

“14 former prosecutors are part of this committee,” Jordan said, adding, “This is all about getting President Trump, but it’s also bigger than that. It’s about getting his family. It’s about getting his friends.”

The Hill reports:

The committee has staffed up with 14 or so ex-prosecutors because: a) the task is vast; b) they have the resources to hire well-trained lawyers who have handled complex federal cases; and c) typical congressional staffers just can’t handle such a colossal undertaking. In other words, Jordan and other Trump World lackeys are facing their worst possible nightmare in the mother of all congressional investigations.

And on Sunday, Jordan appeared on Fox News to say he believes Clinton aides should be put to death after reports that members of her 2016 presidential campaign paid a tech company to access servers belonging to Trump Tower in an effort to find links to Russia.

“That is what is so frightening here,” he said. “You had the government working with the Clinton campaign to go after the Republican Party’s nominee for president to spy on that campaign.”

Of course, Jordan didn’t provide any evidence to support his assertion.

While you’re here, re-live that moment when Val Demings handled Jordan like a boss after he interrupted her during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on a proposed hate crimes bill last year…
