Rep. Jim Jordan took to Twitter Monday to urge people to remember the past, prompting scores of replies about things he likely hopes they forget.
Weighing in on the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, the homophobic lawmaker tweeted: “Don’t forget what Democrats did to Brett Kavanaugh.”
Kavanaugh faced questions in 2018 about accusations of sexual assault from his high school and college years, which he heatedly denied. He was confirmed to the Supreme Court in a 50-48 vote.
But commenters seemed less concerned about Kavanaugh being questioned about his alleged assaults than they were with Jordan’s own sketchy past.
Specifically, his ever-shifting story about whether or not he communicated with former President Donald Trump during the Jan. 6 insurrection.
JimBro can’t remember how many times he spoke with the President during an insurrection, but can somehow remember every moment from a multi day confirmation hearing. Ok then. https://t.co/TpmvgEYTJ1

We won’t forget you lied about your phone calls w/Trump on Jan. 6th when MAGA terrorists assaulted Capitol.
We won’t forget you voted to decertify Electoral Votes to overturn 2020 election.
We won’t forget you voted twice to acquit Trump of abuse of office & contempt of Congress. https://t.co/WEIsuId1lO

Hey Jim Jordan, Liz Cheney has your text messages.
You should be very worried right now.

Others opted not to “forget” about Jordan’s time as assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University, when he was accused of ignoring molestation claims about the team doctor.

He cried and said he loved beer
“Jim Jordan called me crying, groveling, begging me to go against my brother, begging me, crying for a half-hour,” DiSabato said Wednesday. “That’s the kind of cover-up that’s going on there.” https://t.co/fje0CtU2go

Jim Jordan upset about someone being held accountable for sexual abuse?
At least he’s consistent. https://t.co/UgaJovVqbk
