'Hunter derangement syndrome': Twitter mocks Jim Jordan for his deep concern over Hunter Biden art sales
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is questioning whether Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg has taken time away from probing former President Donald Trump to investigate Hunter Biden's art sales.
Jordan tweeted Friday, "Is Alvin Bragg looking into Hunter Biden's art sales and business records in New York City?"
USA Today reports:
Republicans are investigating Hunter Biden's art sales as part of wide-ranging inquiries into his business dealings and bank records. Rep. James Comer, the Oversight chairman, questioned whether Hunter Biden was peddling influence to foreign adversaries by using high-value art to evade U.S. sanctions, with prices on his work initially listed at up to $500,000 and now ranging from $55,000 to $225,000 apiece.
New York gallery owner, Georges Berges, according to USA Today has "defended Hunter Biden and predicted he would be 'one of the most consequential artists in this century.'"
Regarding the congressman's spearheading of the Biden probe, Slate reports:
Jordan and other Republicans are not obsessed with Hunter Biden because they believe humbly in the ideals of ethical government. Instead, they are taking cues from Donald Trump, who for several years has fixated on a number of fantastical and never-proven accusations that Hunter and Joe Biden are engaged in 'deep state' corruption together.
Twitter users offered some answers to Jordan's questions — none of which he was likely expecting.

@MuellerSheWrote: "Did he sell his art to pay off a porn actress for her silence while running for president? Then probs not."
colton dunn: "Ah. The unbeatable 'look over there' defense."
Bill Ingram: "Why are you asking us??"
@JoJoFromJerz: "Nope. Probably because he only looks at ACTUAL crimes, Gym."
@Rob0hlson: "Is Jim Jordan actually doing anything for the people of Ohio or just complaining on Twitter?"
@RubenFromDeep: "No. Too busy with all Trump's crimes"
Bob McIntyre: "Jim, That's rich. You, of all people, saying things should be looked into"
Pete Souza: "Only if a there's evidence he committed a crime and a grand jury votes to indict him. It's called the rule of law. We know Trump committed crime(s) since the Feds said he did when they indicted and jailed Cohen. And a grand jury just agreed."
@StevePasquale: "Violent coup plotter has something he'd like to say."
