Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is “very proud of his body,” the President of the United States commented Thursday.
Jordan was one of an array of political allies on whom Trump lavished praise Thursday, during a lengthy, rambling speech celebrating his acquittal by the Senate on two impeachment charges.
“He’s the NCAA — meaning, a couple years ago in college — wrestling champ,” Trump said of Jordan. “That means in all of college, you’re the best. His record was ridiculous. Nobody could beat him.”
“And I see it. Every time I see it. When I first got to know Jim Jordan, I said, huh, he never wears a jacket. What the hell is going on? He’s obviously very proud of his body.”
Trump kept on complimenting Jordan’s physique.
“They say when Jim works out, even though he’s not as young as he was, the machine starts burning. It’s just a different form of a workout than us.”
“Right, Sonny?” Trump said, seemingly referring to the rotund secretary of Agriculture.
Trump added that Jordan’s ears hinted at his wrestling past.
“I’m looking at those ears, and I say, ‘Those ears have something going on there. Did you ever wrestle?’ ‘Yeah, I did.’”
After his time as a college wrestler, Jordan coached wrestling at the Ohio State University. Multiple former student wrestlers have accused him of ignoring evidence of rampant sexual abuse as a coach. Jordan has maintained his ignorance.
