California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters told Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan to “shut your mouth” during a committee meeting on Thursday.
The scolding came after several minutes of Jordan going back and forth with Dr. Anthony Fauci over lockdowns and their affect on liberties during a House Coronavirus Crisis Subcommittee meeting on Thursday.
Subcommittee Chairman and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina told Jordan that his time was expired and the next member attempted to begin questioning Fauci. But Jordan continued talking despite the sound of the chairman’s gavel.
“You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth!” Waters interjected.
Clyburn did not seem to appreciate Waters’s help.
“Don’t worry about this,” he said. “We’re going to handle this, and I think Mr. Jordan knows me very well. And he knows full well that we’re going to handle this.”
Jordan had pressed Fauci about the standard he is using to make recommendations about lockdowns.
“Are we just going to continue this forever? … What measure, what standard, what objective outcome do we have to reach before, before Americans get their liberty and freedoms back?” Jordan asked Fauci.
