Dan Lyons, a staff writer on HBO’s hit comedy “Silicon Valley,” tweeted out this fake Jim Jordan quote to mock President Trump over his recent comment on his role in the aftermath of 9/11:
GOP rallies around Trump 9/11 role. “While Obama and Biden were cowering in fear on Air Force 1, Mr. Trump was on the ground with first responders searching for survivors and pulling people to safety,” Jim Jordan says. “I remember seeing him on TV, running toward the danger.” pic.twitter.com/P7ol4wycoF

The problem is that libs don’t get that it’s satire:

Deleted a tweet with a fake quote from Jim Jordan.
In my defense, he does say a lot of ridiculous things.

Does this dumbasss know that Obama and Biden weren’t even President & VP when 9/11 happened? This kind of uneducated stupidity is why we have Trump instead of Clinton. https://t.co/x0NtDnqeby

@Jim_Jordan is back in the running for dumbest member of Congress.
Obama wouldn’t be in office for over seven years.
Also there is ZERO footage of Trump running towards the towers or it would have been run repeatedly during his campaign. https://t.co/mKOnuVkm4E

Jim Jordan remembers seeing Trump pulling survivors to safety on 9/11, but he doesn’t remember seeing the doctor in the office next to him molesting dozens of students over several years.#JimJordanLies https://t.co/03AeLxEDAr

MY GOD! What would the @GOP say if Trump declared he was also the first man on the moon?!!! "Hard to tell WHO was actually in that space suit. No reason not to think it wasn't Trump." https://t.co/HPxWYsj7w7

This is a complete lie. Already proven to be a lie. But it fits the character of Gym Jordan to push a lie. https://t.co/fURisnr5G0

“While Obama and Biden were cowering in fear on Air Force 1…” in 2001… when Obama was a state senator in Illinois… https://t.co/rCrcaQutpT
