Donald Trump Defends GOP Jim Jordan as 4th Abused Wrestler Comes Forward

Just as a fourth former Ohio State University wrestler came forward Thursday to contradict Rep. Jim Jordan’s claim that he had no idea the wrestling team doctor was molesting athletes, serial groper Donald Trump came forward to defend him saying ““Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I’ve met since I’ve been in Washington.”

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not believe allegations by several former wrestlers at Ohio State University coached by Republican Representative Jim Jordan that he was aware the team doctor was molesting them.

“Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I’ve met since I’ve been in Washington. I believe him 100 percent,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One while traveling to Montana.

Shawn Dailey, the fourth Ohio State wrestler to come forward said he was groped half a dozen times by Dr. Richard Strauss in the mid-1990s, when Jordan was the assistant wrestling coach. Dailey said he was too embarrassed to report the abuse directly to Jordan at the time, but he said Jordan took part in conversations where Strauss’ abuse of many other team members came up.

“I participated with Jimmy and the other wrestlers in locker-room talk about Strauss. We all did,” Dailey, 43, told NBC News, referring to Jordan. “It was very common knowledge in the locker room that if you went to Dr. Strauss for anything, you would have to pull your pants down”

Does anyone know has Democrat Kirstin Gillibrand has called for Jordan’s resignation? Or does she only eat her own party?

UPDATE:  5th Witness — Former UFC Champion — Comes Forward

Former UFC Champion Mark Coleman, says, “There’s no way unless he’s (Jordan) got dementia or something that he’s got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State.”
