Jim Jordan Gets Desperate, Tries To Claim President Biden Was Eating Lobster For Thanksgiving While Americans Struggle, But The Official Menu Proved That Was A Lie

That's not what happened, dude.

Republicans always seem to be outraged about innocuous things. Conservatives were mad that Vice President Kamala Harris bought a pot while she was in Paris recently. And now they’re angry that President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden spent Thanksgiving in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Spending the Thanksgiving holiday on the Massachusetts island is a decades-long family tradition for the Bidens, but Rep. Jim Jordan took issue with it on Twitter.

“Biden is eating lobster in Nantucket for Thanksgiving, while you struggle to afford groceries at home,” Jordan falsely said.

Look, I love lobster and wouldn’t criticize anyone for eating it, but what he said is just a flat-out lie. The Bidens ate thyme-roasted turkey, “Grandmom Jacobs’ savory stuffing,” classic turkey gravy, roasted vegetables, sweet potatoes, kale, button mushrooms, and cranberry relish, along with apple, pumpkin, and coconut cream pie. Oh, and chocolate chip ice cream.

Twitter users piled in.

Jordan being mad at President Biden for eating food on Thanksgiving has got to be one of the strangest feigned outrages yet from a Republican.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
