Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) is hoping to become the Speaker of the House following the retirement of Paul Ryan.
A panel of Nicolle Wallace’s MSNBC show did not think this was a very good idea.
“He’s a joke!” said Wallace, a former Republican operative.
“He certainly is a joke,” agreed panelist Charlie Sykes of the Weekly Standard.
Wallace then played clips of Jordan berating and harassing people testifying before him. Sykes said that Jordan’s staff is ill-serving him.
“Doesn’t he have a staff?” asked Sykes. “Isn’t the job of the staff—if your boss is a moron isn’t the job of your staff to go out and prevent you from going out in public and confirming that you’re a moron.”
“I think it’s worse than being a moron,” she said.

President Donald Trump was slammed on MSNBC by a former four-star Army general for his foreign policy blunders.
MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace interviewed Barry McCaffrey on "Deadline: White House" on Tuesday.
"This picture of constant gyrations around the deliberations around Iran seems to be fulfilling the old expression, 'when America sneezes, the world catches a cold,'" Wallace noted.
"Nicolle, I’ve followed these foreign policy and national security policy issues for the better part of fifty years, you almost have to be at a loss for words for what's going on," McCaffrey replied.
Thief saws off Marilyn Monroe statue in Hollywood
A statue of Marilyn Monroe that sat atop an artwork in Hollywood that celebrates women in film has gone missing in what authorities are calling the "Marilyn caper of 2019."
The statue, which illustrates the legendary actress in her iconic pose from "The Seven Year Itch," was perched atop the Ladies of Hollywood Gazebo on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Police said investigators had recovered some prints at the scene but had yet to make any arrests on Tuesday.
