Gym Jordan explodes when asked to put on a mask, pivots to 'unmasking' of Michael Flynn

Rep. Gym Jordan (R-Ohio) has successfully twisted a public health concern into a conservative conspiracy theory — but not the one of the dozens of COVID-19 conspiracies one might expect.

During a Wednesday hearing with the country's four biggest technology companies, Jordan used his questioning time to claim Google tried to help Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race. Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Penn.) was up next, and started her questioning by saying she would pivot from "fringe conspiracy theories" to anti-trust questions. Chaos predictably ensued.

"We have the email, there is no fringe—" Jordan interrupted before committee chair Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) cut him off. "Put your mask on," Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) chimed in. Jordan then used Raskin's request to pivot to a favorite conspiracy: "You want to talk about masks? Why would the deputy secretary of the treasury unmask Michael Flynn's name?"

Jordan's outburst came just hours after Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) tested positive for COVID-19 and then walked around the House office building knowing he had it. Jordan was also reminded, albeit more gently, to put on his mask during a Tuesday hearing with Attorney General William Barr. Gohmert was also at that hearing, and one of his aides — and other Republican staffers — have since anonymously complained about the lack of mask compliance among their congressmembers.

1. Why don't they kick Jordan out, for disruptive behavior? I don't understand why they allow such...

disruptive behavior in such an institution by an idiotic member of the republican caucus. Does Jordan know where the hell he is at?

The way this idiot is, he's going to become sick and die before too long, being that he's being totally irresponsible to all (but himself of course, he seemed to have forgotten that he does serve the people of his state (somehow, I don't know how)).

Disgusting POS, who obviously can't get enough of himself.

5. His claim that google was in the tank for Hillary is PURE projection,

Born of the FACT that Facebook helped trump cheat lol.
We can be assured that this did happen on trumps behalf, or they wouldnt be trying to accuse the other side of the same grift.
