It’s well-established that no one in congress enjoys hearing himself talk more than Ohio Representative Jim Jordan.
The grandstanding congressman was at it again today as he shouted at Dr. Anthony Fauci over pandemic restrictions during a House Oversight coronavirus subcommittee hearing Thursday. When Jordan ignored attempts by the committee chair, Rep. James Clyburn, to move on, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters stepped in and shut him down:
“Respect the chair and shut your mouth.”
Judging by the responses to the video on Twitter, Rep. Waters spoke for most of America when she said that.

I get so sick and tired of Jim Jordan's screechy, verbal runaway train — thank you, Auntie Maxine, for slamming the brakes on him and telling him to SHUT HIS MOUTH!pic.twitter.com/xmaaAtVOxZ

Another publicity stunt from Jim Jordan and @RepMaxineWaters is having none of it: "You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth." ???
Jordan voted AGAINST getting people tested and vaccinated! Now he's pretending he's worried about getting us back to normal? Please. pic.twitter.com/h8uYtW1Bjd

Maxine Waters telling an unhinged Jim Jordan to “shut your mouth” is the catharsis we all needed.

We also need a 24 hour/day channel where Maxine Waters tells Gym Jordan to shut his mouth.
