What is ironic about Gatsby’s assurance to Nick that “Miss Baker’s a great sportswoman, you know, and she’d never do anything that wasn’t all right.”
Gatsby has a high opinion of Jordan, but she considers him dishonest and sneaky.
Nick described earlier in the novel that Jordan has a tendency to lie and has been accused of cheating.
Gatsby has only met Jordan once and hardly knows her well enough to assess her character.
Jordan has refused to help Gatsby by making his request to Nick.
Nick already knows what Gatsby wants to ask him and has already agreed.
