Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele called Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan a "son of a b****" for his recent remarks that he wasn't certain whether he spoke to former President Donald Trump on Jan. 6.

The former RNC chairman, a frequent critic of the former president, expressed disbelief that Jordan would be uncertain of the details of his conversation with Trump surrounding the events of Jan. 6.

"I can tell you the time, the place, the date of every conversation I've had with every president of this country, period," Steele said during a Thursday livestream for the Lincoln Project, a group of current and former Republican operatives who oppose Trump. "Going back to Bill Clinton, I can tell you where I was. I can tell you what was said. This son of a b**** is sitting up there acting like, 'Well, I don't know if it was before. I don't know if it was after. Oh, lordy, Jesus, I don't remember. I got to look at my notes.' You know, b****, what time you called the president, and you know what you said."

MCCARTHY SIDESTEPS WHETHER HE STILL THINKS TRUMP BEARS JAN. 6 RESPONSIBILITY

Steele then compared Jordan, who's a "grown a** man," to a 10-year-old who "got caught masturbating by [his] mama."

"Stop it," he advised Jordan.

On Tuesday, Jordan told Fox's Bret Baier that he "can't remember all the days" he spoke with Trump after being asked whether he and the former president talked on the day of the Capitol riot.

"Yes, I mean, I've talked to the president, I've talked to the president so many, I can't remember all the days I've talked to him. But I've certainly talked to the president," Jordan said.

He subsequently acknowledged specifically speaking to Trump on Jan. 6 in a separate interview.

"I spoke with him that day, after? I think after," Jordan told Spectrum News reporter Taylor Popielarz. "I don't know if I spoke with him in the morning or not. I just don't know ... I don't know when those conversations happened."

Jordan, a close Trump ally, and Indiana Rep. Jim Banks were blocked by Speaker Nancy Pelosi from serving on the chamber's commission investigating what happened on Jan. 6 after Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy selected them and three others to participate in the commission.

McCarthy subsequently pulled all five of his appointees from the commission, leaving Trump critics Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger as the only Republicans on the committee.

Trump was impeached for his words and actions preceding the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, but he was later acquitted in the Senate. He was previously impeached on two Ukraine-related charges in 2019 before being acquitted in the Senate.
