Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) was in a no-holds-barred mood recently when she told Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) “shut your mouth” during a congressional hearing.
During a House Oversight coronavirus subcommittee hearing, Jordan and the country’s top infectious diseases expert Anthony Fauci got into a heated exchange over public health precautions versus personal liberty.
Jordan ran out the clock for questions and wanted to continue, but Waters would have none of it.
“I’d like my question answered,” Jordan said.
“Time expired, sir,” Waters said to Jordan. “You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth.”
Jordan and Fauci have clashed before during hearings regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
