WATCH: The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah Torches Jim Jordan Over Mask Hypocrisy
Republicans are having a really hard time with Joe Biden’s handling of COVID-19. Donald Trump’s effort, of course, was an absolute dumpster fire. On one hand, Republicans want Trump to be given credit for the vaccine being developed while he was president. On the other hand, scores of Republican congresspeople are refusing to get inoculated themselves.
And the GOP is also quite upset about all the praise Biden is getting for his current performance. So many of it’s members look to complain about restrictions regardless is their views are hypocritical. Trevor Noah took on this hypocrisy Monday night and save special vitriol for Jim Jordan.
The Daily Show host said of Republicans:
“This reaction’s a little weird, man. Because it’s been months ― months ― of Republicans complaining about mask rules, but now they’re upset that the mask rules are being relaxed? What? It’s like Mariah Carey getting mad at you because she got you for Christmas. No, Mariah, you said this was all you wanted.”
Noah continued, “Well, if Jim Jordan thinks this is a coverup, I trust him because Jim Jordan knows a lot about coverups.”
Jordan, who was a coach of the Ohio State wrestling team in the 80’s and 90’s has been accused of turning a blind eye to the team doctor sexually assaulting student athletes. A number of wrestlers coach by Jordan have come out to accuse him of lying.
