Jim Jordan Shuts Down Jerry Nadler’s Claim About Portland Violence: “Ask the small business owners”

Jim Jordan is done playing Jerry Nadler’s games and shut down the overmatched Congressman from New York’s spurious ideas about Portland.

“#Antifa isn’t a “myth. Ask the police officers risking their lives to preserve law and order. Ask the federal agents being pelted with fireworks and projectiles,” said Jordan.

“Ask the small business owners who’ve had their property destroyed,” he added to devastating effect. Nadler knows he is stuck between a rock and a hard place as are all the Dems who won’t denounce this violence.

From The New York Post:

New York Rep. Jerry Nadler is shown in a new online clip calling violence in Portland by Antifa a “myth,” after protests were declared a riot on Sunday morning.

The House Judiciary Committee Chairman was approached by writer-producer Austen Fletcher, who said he asked the Democrat to disavow the rioting in the Oregon city.

“I ran into Jerry Nadler in DC and asked him to disavow the Antifa violence/rioting in Portland. His response? ‘THAT’S A MYTH,’” Fletcher said in a tweet along with the short video.

Before getting into his car, Nadler tells Fletcher that it’s a “myth that’s being spread only in Washington DC.”

The high ranking New York Democrat is being assailed for his comments online. Among the people who blasted Nadler for his comment was Eric Trump.

“This is the Democratic Party in 2020,” President Trump’s youngest son said in a tweet.

Elijah Schaffer, a member of conservative media company Blaze Media, also reacted to the encounter.

“Portland is at war every night, but Rep Jerry Nadler says my video coverage of Antifa violence & vandalism is a ‘myth,’” he wrote. “Antifa is very real, & they are incredibly dangerous.”
