U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is being accused of being less than forthright when it comes to his memory of past conversations with former President Trump. So much so, that former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has called him out with some choice, juvenile criticisms.
In a recent interview on “Special Report with Bret Baier,” Jordan told the Fox News host, “Yes, I mean, I’ve talked to the president, I’ve talked to the president so many, I can’t remember all the days I’ve talked to him. But I’ve certainly talked to the president.”
Baier had to follow up with the representative, asking him if he specifically talked to Trump on Jan. 6, 2021, to which Jordan responded that he had but offered no insight into what was said.
In another interview with Spectrum News, Jordan was asked specifically when he talked to Trump on the day in question; before, during or after the breaching of the U.S. Capitol.
“I spoke with him that day, after? I think after. I don’t know if I spoke with him in the morning or not. I just don’t know…I don’t know when those conversations happened.” Jordan said, appearing somewhat flustered by the question.
Michael Steele doesn’t believe Jordan’s claims that he can’t remember details of his conversations with Trump, and said as much in a live stream with The Lincoln Project, an ad hoc organization of questionable integrity that was no doubt salivating over the exchange. In a manner of oration normally heard on middle school playgrounds, Steele slammed the Ohio congressman for appearing to dodge specifics.

“I can tell you the time, the place, the date of every conversation I’ve had with every president of this country, period,” Steele said Thursday.
“Going back to Bill Clinton, I can tell you where I was. I can tell you what was said. This son of a b**** is sitting up there acting like, ‘Well, I don’t know if it was before. I don’t know if it was after. Oh, lordy, Jesus, I don’t remember. I got to look at my notes.’ You know, b****, what time you called the president, and you know what you said.”

He then went on to say that Jordan is a “grown a** man,” and that his behavior was that of a 10-year-old who “got caught masturbating by [his] mama.”
“Stop it,” he added.
Jordan was among five Republicans assigned to the Jan 6th commission, three of whom were blocked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) leaving notable RINO Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and the weeping Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) as the only two passing muster with the speaker.
Of note, Kinzinger now shares a kind of syrupy kinship with first-class liar and wannabe scenarist Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). It is not known if the duo ever shed a solitary tear over those whose lives were ruined or had loved ones murdered by fiery but mostly peaceful rioters during the summer of 2020.
