“California Rep. Eric Swalwell might regret appearing on ‘Hardball with Chris Matthews’ this week after his interview on the MSNBC show went viral for all the wrong reasons.
Swalwell, 39, appeared on Monday’s episode to debate whether or not President Trump used taxpayer dollars to cheat in the election, but midway through one of his statements, a loud farting noise interrupted the broadcast.
‘Chris, so far the evidence is uncontradicted that the president used taxpayer dollars to help him cheat…’ he said, before the erroneous noise was heard. ‘…an election. And the complaint that I’ve heard from Republicans…'”
Eric Swalwell’s presidential run had all the impact of a wet fart, it didn’t make much noise but the utter futility of his campaign left him soiled.
Swalwell’s brief interview with Chris Matthews made more of an impact that his ill-fated presidential campaign. Usually political hacks like Swalwell make news for the hot air that emanates from their mouth, but this time Swalwell went viral for the tremendous blast that emanated from his butt.
Swalwell’s fart was so prodigiously loud that #FartGate briefly eclipsed #UkraineGate as the hottest topic on Twitter. Swallwell’s fart will linger for far longer than a news cycle, it will doom any future presidential run.
The only way Swalwell could have redeemed himself and saved his political career was by admitting that he was the one that cut the cheese. But nobody ever admits that they farted, and certainly not a politician.
Did Swalwell art on live TV? Watch the video! You be the judge!
