Republican Rep. Jim Jordan boldly declared on Twitter Thursday that the one-term ex-President Donald Trump “is the leader” of the GOP.

President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party.

The Ohio Republican ― who is the latest in a long line of Trump sycophants appearing to suggest the party will implode without the former president ― received a series of stinging reminders in response.

Many critics recalled Trump’s 2020 election loss to President Joe Biden and the GOP losing both their House and Senate majorities to the Democrats during the Trump era:

Keeping Donald Trump as the face and leader of the Republican party after decisive electoral defeats in 2018 and 2020 that gave Democrats the House, Senate and White House? Please proceed.

When you lose the House, Senate and White House under a party's leader, it might be time to find a new one.

Great! He's just led your party into losing the House, the Senate, and the Presidency.By all means, keep him in charge.

Is this a warning or a threat or the headline of an onion story?

I'm sure glad you cleared that up.

I just don’t understand the compulsion to attach yourself to a loser like this.

— Sonny Bunch (@SonnyBunch) February 24, 2021

That's why the Democrats have both houses of Congress and the Presidency.

LOL. This isn't admitting what you think it's admitting. Remember January 6th? Remember the insurrectionists? Yeah, the Former Guy is the leader of those people. Thanks for confirming. Again.

Right! Because he won re-election! No, wait. Because he won back the House for you! No, wait. Because he kept the Senate for you! No, wait. Because he kept Georgia red! No, wait. This is your "leader"? #Trump

Strong "Kim Jong Un is the Supreme Leader of North Korea" vibes

Indeed. Which is why we need something new.

I know Jim. I'm so sorry. I can't imagine the anguish you must feel. May the memory of the sane Republican Party be a blessing to you

This is the saddest thing I've ever seen. For like 12 reasons.
