Former chair of the Republican Nationwide Committee Michael Steele delivered a searing smackdown of Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-Ohio) declare that he can’t bear in mind if he spoke to Donald Trump earlier than, throughout or after violence erupted within the Capitol on Jan. 6.
“You understand what time you known as the president, and you recognize what you stated,” an incredulous Steele snapped, referring to Jordan, on “The Breakdown” on Lincoln Venture TV, a media mission of the Republican-run anti-Trump group, of which Steele is a member.
“You’re a grown-ass man,” Steele added. “Cease performing like 10-year-old child who obtained caught masturbating by his momma. Cease it.”
Steele was referring to Jordan’s stumbling responses earlier this week when he admitted that he talked to Trump the day of the revolt. However he was extraordinarily fuzzy on particulars, and claimed he couldn’t recall precisely what was stated, nor did he bear in mind the timing.
When Taylor Popielarz of Spectrum Information pressed Jordan Wednesday on precisely when he spoke to the president, Jordan responded: “I spoke with him that day … after? I believe after. I don’t know if I spoke with him within the morning or not. I simply don’t know … I don’t know when these conversations occurred.”
Steele shot again within the LPTV interview: “I can let you know the time, the place, the date of each dialog I’ve had with each president of this nation, interval, going again to Invoice Clinton. I can let you know the place I used to be; I can let you know what was stated. This son of a bitch is sitting up there performing like, ’Nicely, I don’t know if it was earlier than, I don’t know if it was after. Oh lordy Jesus, I don’t bear in mind. I gotta have a look at my notes.’”
