The House Judiciary Committee Twitter account drew mockery for a post defending former President Donald Trump ahead of his expected indictment over a hush money payment to porn actor Stormy Daniels.
The committee, which lists Trump-adoring Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) as its ranking member, on Tuesday quoted Jordan himself as saying: “We don’t think President Trump broke the law at all.”
It posted three fire emojis below.
“We don’t think President Trump broke the law at all.” -@Jim_Jordan

Some critics laughed at the idea of an account apparently run by Jordan endorsing his own quote.
Others edited the message, suggesting it could have stopped after three words: “We don’t think.”
Many just marveled at the use of burning emojis.
You could've stopped at those first 3 words and been correct. https://t.co/nGVmnSiOBr

The correct way to finish that statement is with a "period" following the word "think " https://t.co/28SHbEGDSz

You could have placed the period after "think". https://t.co/QLjPlgyiom

We just paid Jim Jordan to give himself three fire emojis. https://t.co/WkbW6TCIWi

Not sure what’s funnier, a guy with no legal background giving a legal opinion, or that same guy thinking that opinion is 🔥🔥🔥

You’re quoting yourself? 🙄
That’s like speaking about yourself in third person.

It doesn’t matter what you think. You have no jurisdiction.

That's for the judge and jury to determine.

That's because Republicans don't think. https://t.co/57R43d8cp6
