Jim Jordan American politician
The Ohio Republican's request for a congressional investigation got the treatment on Twitter.
Rep. Jim Jordan was an assistant coach of the wrestling team at Ohio State, where officials reported decades of abuse.
The Ohio Republican argued Trump didn't incite the riot because it was planned before the day it occurred.
Snapping back at the GOP congressman, one critic wrote, "450,000 dead Americans would disagree."
The Republican congressman wondered what the Founding Fathers would say about stay-at-home orders to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Rep. Jim Jordan kept badgering him, but the infectious diseases expert stuck to general warnings about crowds.
“I’m here today to ask you to make it stop. Stop the pain,” Philonese Floyd told members of Congress.
“The idea that I wouldn’t stand up for these athletes is ridiculous," Jordan told CNN.
At a recent legislative hearing, a former OSU wrestling captain said that Jordan called him, “begging” him to keep quiet.
The Ohio Republican is an ardent defender of President Trump and served on his defense team during the Senate's impeachment trial.
