Gym Jordan Tries SO HARD to Get Dr. Fauci to Say People Shouldn’t Protest and It Backfires for Screaming Jordan
Good ol’ Loud Gym Jordan really should stop trying to challenge people who are smarter than him from his committee chair. It never seems to work quite as well as he might have envisioned. The really fun part is that Jordan looks like the kid who is kicking and screaming, and cannot draw someone in to kick and scream with him. Jordan wants someone to try to fight him and when a witness just calmly answers back, it sends Jordan into even bigger hysterics.
It happened again today when Jordan tried to get Dr. Anthony Fauci to agree with him that all those hippie-ass-p***ys that are protesting should be put in jail for spreading the disease during a pandemic. From The Week:
Because science indicates crowds exacerbate the spread of coronavirus, Jordan asked Fauci on Friday if the government “should limit the protests.” “I’m not in a position to determine what the government should do in a forceful way,” Fauci responded. So Jordan kept pressing: “The government is stopping people from going to church,” claiming that’s something “the five liberals” on the Supreme Court had decided. But Fauci continued holding out, saying he does not “judge one crowd versus another crowd” and would not “opine on who should get arrested or not. That’s not my position.”
Jordan then went so far as to claim Fauci had said “protests increase the spread” of coronavirus. “I said crowds, I didn’t say specifically, I didn’t say protests or anything, ” Fauci firmly responded. “You’re putting words in my mouth,” Fauci continued before saying he had no data showing the nationwide protests had spread the virus.
Jordan is completely outclassed in this battle.
Rep. Jordan: So, you’re allowed to protest, millions of people in crowds…but you try to run your business and you get arrested?
Dr. Fauci: I don't understand what you're asking me, as a public health official, to opine on who should get arrested or not. That’s not my position pic.twitter.com/fAZEqbLz5q

You gotta love Dr. Fauci. At one point he just laughed at Jordan:

Twitter was obviously on Team Fauci:
Jim Jordan, trying to Whataboutism by asking Dr. Fauci "should we limit the protesting" is infuriating.
I wish Fauci had told him to put on a jacket and limit the assholery and pedophilia-enabling.
But he's too classy.

When Russia attacked America, Gym Jordan attacked the FBI. When a pandemic attacked America, Gym Jordan attacked Dr. Fauci. It seems fair to day Gym Jordan is an enemy of the United States.

Rep. Jim Jordan has tried multiple times during the COVID hearing to get Dr. Fauci to say that protests, specifically protests, spread coronavirus. Fauci has replied only in broad terms about crowds, angering Jordan. Fauci eventually accused Jordan of "putting words in my mouth."

Watching Dr. Fauci put Jim Jordan in his place is just an awesome thing to watch.
Thank you Dr. Fauci for refusing to play games with this molestation-defending, hair-thinning Trump stooge.

Jim Jordan asking Dr. Fauci if protestors should be arrested is exactly like asking your dentist if you should break up with your girlfriend?

Why is Gym Jordan acting like such an asshole when he questions Dr. Fauci at a congressional hearing?
Because he's such an asshole.

Oh look, even Trump had to pipe in, and I think it’s safe to say he’s on Team Jordan:
Great job by Jim Jordan, and also some very good statements by Tony Fauci. Big progress being made! https://t.co/8Oeca9H3yq
