Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) asked Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) whether to dismiss a tweet from the GOP House Judiciary Committee, of which he is the senior member.
Swalwell: Do you condemn your tweet praising Kanye West?

Swalwell asked Jordan if he denounced the tweet in support of Kanye West, and the Republican replied, “That tweet wasn’t on our account. This tweet has been removed.”
Jordan didn’t mention that the tweet had been in the GOP House Judiciary Committee account for 55 days.
Also, in his response to Swalwell, Rep. Jordan did not denounce the Hitler-loving Kanye West.
Is it that hard for an elected Republican to say publicly that Nazis are evil and don’t like Nazis?
Alex Jones was able to do it, so it shouldn’t be hard for the new House Judiciary Committee chairman to say that Nazis are evil and that he doesn’t support or like Hitler.
In a nine-second video clip, Jim Jordan previewed to the American people how he will chair the House Judiciary Committee, which did not bode well for the American people.
