WATCH: Jim Jordan Smiles as Trump Tells Story About How Tough He Is

Moments ago, GOP lawmakers picked Jim Jordan to lead the House Judiciary Committee.  Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming called the pick a “totally unified decision all around.”

Earlier in the day, during President Trump’s controversial acquittal victory speech, President Trump told a story about meeting Jim Jordan and praised how tough he is, prompting a flustered Jordan to laugh along his GOP colleagues.

“When I first got to know Jim, I said, ‘Huh, he never wears a jacket. What the hell’s going on?'” Trump said. “He’s obviously very proud of his body.

“They say where he works out … the machine starts burning.”

Trump then spoke at length about Jordan’s cauliflower ears, a side effect from his collegiate wrestling careers and praised him for how tough he is, saying he brought that toughness to the political arena.
