Democratic Representative Eric Swalwell of California lambasted Representative Jim Jordan on social media after the Ohio Republican, who once tried to mock mask-wearing mandates, made an anti-vax comment on Twitter.

The staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump and relentless critic of Dr. Anthony Fauci—America's leading infectious disease expert and Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden—tweeted:

"Ohio should ban all vaccine mandates."


Swalwell, however, dragged the GOP Representative by bringing up Jordan's own controversial past.

"Ohio should mandate sexual assault reporting for coaches."


Swalwell was referring to the Ohio State University sexual misconduct scandal where Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach with the university's wrestling program from 1987 to 1995.

In June 2018, Jordan was accused of being aware of and ignoring allegations of sexual misconduct by the team's former physician, Richard Strauss, who was working during Jordan's tenure as an assistant coach.

Jordan dismissed the students' claims and described Strauss's accusers as "pawns in a political plot."

But several students came forward and claimed Jordan took part in locker-room discussions pertaining to Strauss's abusive behavior.

People were here for Swalwell's acerbic wit aimed at the founding member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.






Twitter had thoughts of their own in response to Jordan's questionable health priorities.







In April, Jordan was raked across the coals online when he asked, "How many masks are we supposed to wear this week?" after he had been whining and politicizing pandemic health and safety guidelines.

He also demanded to know when Americans would get their "liberty and freedoms back."

Dr. Fauci responded by expressing he did not view this as a "liberty thing" but more as a "public health thing" and that the suggested safety measures were not his personal recommendation.
