Watch as Rep. Jim Jordan puts to rest the idea that riots are “peaceful protests” once and for all:
JORDAN: “Are peaceful protests violent, Mr. Attorney General?”
JORDAN: “Do peaceful protests destroy businesses?”
JORDAN: “Do peaceful protests injure officers?”
JORDAN: “Do peaceful protests attack civilians?”
JORDAN: “Do peaceful protests burn down buildings?”
JORDAN: “I was — the video we played, it’s hard to watch. It was really hard to watch, to see that happening in our great country.
