Gym Jordan: We can't impeach Trump because the Wright brothers flew a plane

Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan wound up his speech on the floor of the House in strange fashion, somehow connecting his opposition to the impeachment of President Donald Trump to… the history of flight.

As the House of Representatives debated whether to impeach Trump a second time, this time for his incitement of the Capitol insurrection, Jordan rose to voice his opposition. And in the climax of his speech, the legislator name-checked the Wright Brothers, Chuck Yeager, and the Moon.

“Think about this,” Jordan said. “Think about this, in 1903, in Kitty hawk North Carolina, two guys fly this thing they called a plane a hundred feet. Barely got off the ground. Barely got off the ground. Amazing thing. 44 years later, Chuck Yeager breaks the sound barrier.”

.....

“That’s what this country is capable of. That’s what we can do,” Jordan said, before going on to add “So I hope, I hope we defeat this, I hope we can begin to come together and recognize the greatness of the American people and focus on the things they want us to focus on.”

4. Just gibberish

Lauren Boebert talked about bread from best buy and Tesla and Rep. Buck of Colorado the invasion of the Capitol was
the fault of Obama, the DNC, and the FBI.

6. Uh huh, as if government operations are inherently worse.

Yet they have loved the government military and police for years.

Also, how did the more individual enterprises in the USSR during the space race work out for them? (Very ironic how each side managed it.)
