Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-Ohio) latest attempted dig at Democrats on Twitter backfired.
On Thursday, Jordan heaped praise on Donald Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, writing she “wasn’t scared to answer tough questions.”
“Why’s the Biden White House?” he added.
Critics immediately reminded the Ohio congressman of McEnany’s penchant for pushing falsehoods and defending the baseless assertions of former President Donald Trump.
That’s despite McEnany, who is now a host on Fox News, vowing to journalists during her very first briefing: “I will never lie to you. You have my word on that.”
“Cuz it’s easy to lie,” one commenter fired back.
Said another: “When you’re a shameless liar, answers are easy to come by, Gym.”
Some Twitter users also noted Jordan’s alleged ignoring of molestation allegations against the team doctor during his time as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University. He denies those claims. They also remembered his refusal to cooperate with the House committee investigating the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.
