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.
