A brief Twitter post published by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Wednesday ended up receiving a large number of responses. "President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party," he wrote.
Unsurprisingly, there was a lot of pushback on that notion.
"Jim Jordan is Trump's cheerleader, enabler, co-conspirator and getaway driver," said Jeff Sites, a Democractic candidate who hopes to oust the GOP congressman.
"That will ruin the #GOP," added Fox News commentator Leslie Marshall.

Awesome. Thought for a moment you guys might want to get that stank off of you that led to the loss of the House, Senate and presidency.

The GOP will also die if it doesn't move with the times and future. It's members are dying off (boomers) and young ppl en masse aren't joining it. It wanes every year a bit more. They need to evolve on social issues if they want a lot of fresh ppl

He has never been a leader. But hey, at least we know y'all are more than willing to lose all of your upcoming elections. Good on you!
