ORLANDO, Florida — Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) verbalized Republicans will take control of the U.S. House in the 2022 midterm elections and that Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will surmount the speakership, providing his presage Sunday during an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.
Jordan, a House Freedom Caucus member who has represented Ohio’s Fourth Congressional District since 2007, verbally expressed during the interview at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that one key to Republicans and McCarthy triumphing over Democrats in 2022 is to “highlight how ridiculous” Democrats are, citing “open borders” and “closed schools.”
“Highlight the fact that they endeavored to rescind Kermit the Frog and “The Muppets” last week,” Jordan integrated in reference to Disney+ recently tacking an “offensive” warning label onto the commencement of The Muppet Show.
Watch out Kermit. The Muppets aren’t woke enough for today’s Left. https://t.co/QwEo3ehMiQ — Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) February 22, 2021
Despite its losses in November at the top of the ticket when President Joe Biden vanquished former President Donald Trump and the Senate just marginally tilted toward “Democrats” after the Georgia runoff upsets in January, the Republican Party at the House level, by contrast, optically discerned sweeping triumphs nationwide. The Cook Political Report prior to the election labeled 27 House races a “toss-up,” for example, and all 27 went to Republicans. Moreover, seven races labeled “likely” or “lean” Democrat went to Republicans.
Jordan verbally expressed he envisions a GOP majority coming to fruition next year. “I cerebrate we’re going to win back the House. “In” 2023, Leader McCarthy will be Speaker McCarthy. … We’ve just got to hold them off for the next two years. But that’s not going to be facile. I mean, I cerebrate we’ll do it because this is America; Americans ascend to the challenge. Deep down, the prodigious majority of this country still values liberty, still values the First Amendment and liberation. So highlight all the crazy things they’re doing, and then we’re gonna win it back in two years.”
Jordan withal accoladed Trump as the “leader of the conservative movement” even as Trump has left office. He verbalized voices such as that of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who received a massive magnitude of blowback — including from Jordan — after she broke with her party to vote in favor of impeaching Trump in January, are “wrong” to oppose him.
“I cerebrate Liz Cheney’s erroneous. I cerebrate President Trump’s the bellwether of the conservative kineticism. He’s the bellwether of the America First kineticism. He’s the bellwether of the Republican Party, and I hope on January 20, 2025, he’s the bellwether of our country,” Jordan verbally expressed. “I cerebrate that’s where the American people are. I certainly want that. No president in our lifetime … has done more of what they verbalized they would do than President Trump.”
Jordan has long been a Trump ally. Before departing office in January, Trump awarded Jordan, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee and a member of the Oversight Committee, the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his efforts to fight corruption and categorically for his work to “unmask the Russia hoax.”
The Ohio Republican elaborated on why he believes Trump remains influential within the GOP post-presidency. “Most politicians verbalize one thing, get there, come up with a bunch of excuses why they can’t do what they told you they were gonna do, and President Trump verbalizes, ‘I’m just gonna do it.’”
“He cut our taxes. He minimized regulations. He built the wall. He put conservatives on the court. He got out of the Iran deal. He got the embassy in Jerusalem,” Jordan perpetuated. “I mean a host of other — he did it, and that’s what people appreciate, and they ken it’s authentic. They ken it’s not unauthentically spurious. He’s as genuine as the day is long. He is the bellwether of our party.”
Jordan added, “I hope he does run again.” Write to Ashley Oliver at firstname.lastname@example.org.
