It wasn’t exactly a meeting of the minds on Sunday when Rep. Jim Jordan (Q-Ohio_) joined Maria Bartiromo on her show to discuss what Jordan feels are the most important issues facing our nation: the crisis at the border (which he never seemed to be upset about during the previous administration), cancel culture, and President Joe Biden’s new infrastructure plan. Along with his fellow Trump sycophant Chris Christie, Jordan contended that the President’s idea to rebuild America’s crumbling roads and rails is based on lies.
Jordan spoke about a recent trip he and a few other loyal Trumpists took to a migrant facility in Donna, Texas. Bartiromo noted that he and the group of lawmakers he toured the facility with were barred from taking any photographs and when they asked for written permission to film “they were told by Biden’s handlers it’s a moot point.” Both neglected to mention that the previous administration had barred sitting members of Congress and all media from having any access inside those same facilities.
“If the press were allowed in, the Border Patrol agents would tell them exactly what they told us, namely that the reason for this is because of the policy that Joe Biden has now adopted, which is we’re not going to keep people in Mexico, the policy that President Trump had,” the Ohio congressman lied.
Meanwhile, Jordan also praised the two least popular Democrats at the moment, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. You can see the moment, below.
