How do you defend a president who lied about losing an election, summoned his supporters to DC, whipped them into a frenzy and told them to attack the Capitol and stop the transition of power? If your Congressman Jim Jordan, the answer is: talk about the moon landing.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-MI), one of Trump's staunchest supporters in Congress and a former wrestling coach accused of enabling sexual abuse, is running Trump's defense during the impeachment hearing. In his rousing speech trying to spare Trump from a second impeachment, he ranted a bit about "cancel culture," and then gave a short history of flight.
"Think about this," Jordan said at the climax of his speech. "Think about this, in 1903, in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, two guys fly this thing they called a plane a hundred feet. Barely got off the ground. Barely got off the ground. Amazing thing. 44 years later, Chuck Yeager breaks the sound barrier."
