Former Republican National Committee
chair Michael Steele
delivered a stinging rebuttal to Rep. Jim Jordan
's (R-Ohio) claim that he can't remember whether he spoke to Donald Trump
before, during, or after the Jan. 6 Capitol
“You know what time
you called the president
, and you know what you said,” an incredulous Steele retorted, referring to Jordan, on “The Breakdown” on Lincoln Project TV, a media
project of the Republican-run anti-Trump group, of which Steele is a member.
“You’re a grown-up man,” Steele continued, “so stop acting like a 10-year-old kid who was caught masturbating by his momma. Stop it.”

Steele was referring to Jordan's stumbling responses earlier this week, when he admitted that he spoke with Trump on the day of the insurgency, but he couldn't remember exactly what was said or the timing.
When Spectrum News
' Taylor Popielarz pressed Jordan on when he spoke with the president, he replied, "I spoke with him that day... after? I think after. I don't know if I spoke with him in the morning or not. I just don't know... I don't know when those conversations happened."

Steele responded in the LPTV interview
, saying, "I can tell you the time, the place, and the date of every conversation I've had with every president of this country, going back to Bill Clinton
. I can tell you where I was; I can tell you what was said. This son of a bitch is sitting up there acting like, 'Well, I don't know if it was before, I don't know if it was after. Oh Lordy Jesus, I don't remember."
