After NKOTB’s virtual cruise, Jordan came back to Twitter – after months of being silent – with a couple of tweets regarding shares and the return of the UFC. But then last night, he took another turn.

I think Jordan is focusing too much on this particular exchange, and what happened, instead of looking at the entire context of Trump’s actions.
