  1. Jim Jordan’s combover is about as futile as his understanding of the law.

  2. How can we expect Jim Jordan to see the facts when he can’t even see his own reflection?

  3. GOP hypocrisy and obstruction is crystal clear and fooling no-one. 

    Tissue Mr Jordan ?

      Jordan is auditioning for a cabinet position in a sinking Trump administration. Hopefully the Ohio voters get him out of this position that he is dishonoring.

    • @MosesPlays half your country wants them in office because they’re idiots. So ….. not happening any time soon. Democracy is the best, in the sense it gives what the people want in the end, and if it is idiocy or fanaticism or corruption, then the system will give it to you.

    • @g0679 …. and the rest ! lol !

    All of Trump’s lies point to the truth. It’s the exact opposite of whatever he’s telling you. He cannot speak the truth as he’s incapable of dealing with reality. He has wealth-induced dementia. He is beyond deplorable.

  5. Jim Jordan looks like a feral Ghoul.

  6. Jim Jordan’s viewpoint is disgusting. A horrible man.

    • lean to the right, lean to the right, stand up. Sit down …fight fight fight

    • By Jim “pedo”Jordan , if co-worker it raping kids in school , there is no need to contact police at all … republicans family values !

      Understand neoliberalism and you will understand so much of what is happening in the U.S. and the World right now. This ideaology is affecting every single aspect of society and our lives, and not in a good way.

    • First Name Last Name repugnant!!!

  7. Why is he still talking about the whistleblower? Not important anymore. Everything has moved on. Get real Jim Jordan.

    • The same reason they still bring up Hillary Clinton all the time. It pushes a button, they’ve got practice, and if you ignore their stupid points they can claim you don’t have a response.

    • Ha ha ha love it. Summed up my thoughts exactly!

    • Thats all their thick and empty skulls have.

      Discrediting the whistle blower is the only course of action they have, even though Giuliani and his clients were already revealed to be knee deep in shady work and under investigation.

      It’s just empty barks from a disgusting man that sold his soul to the party, nothing more.

    • Simply deflection, changing the subject. Trump has no defense except saying, “Look over there”.
      What about Hillary, what about Obama, what the Cookie Monster…

  8. Bolton’s Calling lawyers when getting around trump skidmarks in Ukraine…Ther whistleblower is the least of the republikkkans problems

    Is there a drink labeled “Stupid” that Republicans drink upon joining the Party?🤔🤔🤔

    • Matthew Wilson | October 16, 2019 at 7:19 AM | Reply

      They like to have a Big Bowl of Stupid for breakfast before starting their day.

    • The drink is called GOPAA(grand old party against America)that’s what Republicans call themselves. And that’s why they still have the same plans and dont believe in climate change or any new policy their chant hasn’t changed and against progress and wear their MAGA HATS. Also Jordan s mother should oc taught him proper dress code by wearing suit jacket.

    • Yup. Their rite of passage.

    • Nah. They have to give their souls.

    • Kathleen Flacy | October 16, 2019 at 12:15 PM | Reply

      No they drink it before; how else would they be stupid enough to join in the first place?

  10. Gym Jordan how about the young men who were sexually abused while you stood by and said nothing you have no credibility and should not be in your position .

    Whistleblowers, just like OSU athletes, need protection #gymjordan

    • uknowispeaksense good one

    • In this trump government, NO ONE IS SAFE. The Whistleblowers lives would be in great danger!!!! The trump incites his base to hate and violence. He accepts no responsibility for the violence his followers have committed. That is why Whistleblowers must be protected! There has been corroborating reports. This is all the trump “deserves”.

    • When is the o.s.u. going to prosecute this moron. He is covered with boot polish , trunp has stop too fast for jordan. He is absolute a shame. He is suppose to be there for the people, not protecting a crooked liar and a bully called trunp. How many time is jordan a millionaire over. How much is he making a month on kickbacks? U all remember at one time, Youngstown was known as murder town u.s a.
      .

  12. That dude’s comment sounds suspect….almost like that’s a code to send out a secret assassin to take that person out. Trump already said it.

  13. What an effective repudiation to Trump and his lackey Jim Jordan.

    • Grace Padilla , Precisely. And unfortunately, it constantly needs to be pointed out when Drumpf and his mouthpieces attempt to reframe the conversation. This is a classic example of that tactic.

    • Facts and Science Matter | October 16, 2019 at 9:06 AM | Reply

      Grace Padilla – well said. In addition, Jordan’s voice is reminiscent of nails on chalkboard 😖😖😖

    • antony gorrell | October 16, 2019 at 10:14 AM | Reply

      Very good point Grace – Here we have a high ranking official and the so called Leader of the free world court by the Whistle blower, extorting the Ukrain to find dirt on possible delegate

      who running for president which is illegal and he admits he did a quick quo pro, and then presented docs to prove so and this stupid guy Jim Jordan saying that they have a right to know who whistleblower is then he wouldn’t be a whistleblower. But GOP mentality is we only want to blow the whistle on the dems and foreign enemies but oh no we can’t allow a whistle to be blown when we has clearly broken the law –

    • antony gorrell | October 16, 2019 at 12:17 PM | Reply

      I can’t wrap my head around this bc many of these things

  14. Whistle blowers are crucial and important to a democracy and should be treated like an anonymous person for them not to feel or be under duress.

  15. Rudy’s and Trump’s confession is on camera and tape.
    The whistle blower did their patriotic duty.
    Leave them in peace.

    • phillip daugherty | October 16, 2019 at 10:23 AM | Reply

      Not to mention trumps first act as president was trying to lift sanctions on Russians that murdered a whistleblower at the request of Michael Flynn

  16. Jim Jordan allowed young men to be assaulted.

  17. Who cares how it started and they dont even need the whistleblower. Most of the info is out and the corruption is on full display

  18. Gym Shower Jordan is trump’s dancing boy, a liar, and the fake patriot, i.e., , the perfect Republican politician

  19. Funny how Jim Jordan flips on whistleblower’s rights when it’s not for his agenda. Jim Jordan should be removed from office…VOTE HIM OUT!
