So Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., said Monday that he’s open to running for president in 2020.
That’s right, the guy who made headlines for pushing for outright gun confiscation back in May and who peddles Obamacare via specious Thanksgiving anecdotes thinks he might somehow have a shot at winning the electoral college.
And why not? Because with Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., all potentially running for the Oval Office, there might not be enough far-left coastal politicians in the next Democratic primary.
But even though his name recognition might not be anywhere near that of his fellow party members mentioned above, he’s shown that he can hang with the best of them when it comes to far-left shenanigans. Let’s take a look at some of his greatest hits.
When he appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show to defend his extreme gun control stance, it didn’t go so well.
Then a few days later, he got into a Twitter fight with a Parkland survivor (and lost).
How does it feel to be the biggest clown in congress whom also doesn't know the limits of the constitutional authority of the President?
What's hilarious, is that you complain about Trump being a fascist yet you're mad when he follows the law? You're silly.

Then a few weeks later he went back on Tucker Carlson Tonight to talk about Spygate, and that didn’t go well for him, either.
"Why is it ok for an administration to hire an informant to spy on a rival political campaign?"@TuckerCarlson posed this question to @RepSwalwell, who struggled with it mightily. pic.twitter.com/wGxtePHJ5R

He also likes to use gifs to push Russia theories while attacking the president’s daughter.

Yeah, he’s really big on the whole Russia thing, turns out:
"Extremely irresponsible for someone who should know better to try and influence the special counsel’s campaign. They are still counting Russians."

But, Obama officials unmasking private citizens isn’t really that big a deal.
Oh, and he appears to be pretty sympathetic to the impeachment cause.
Gloat now, but you will be fired soon. And it’s not going to be done cowardly, as you’ve done to so many who’ve served you. There’s a storm gathering, Mr. President, and it’s going to wipe out you and your corrupt organization all the way down to the studs. https://t.co/I0UlNAlwxI

You know what? With the way 2020 is shaping up so far, if he does run, he’ll fit right in.
