LOL: This gun-grabbing California Dem is considering a presidential run

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.

It got even worse when he tried to double down on his agenda a few days later. Like, really bad.

Then a few days later, he got into a Twitter fight with a Parkland survivor (and lost).

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.

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:

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.

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