Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has been a long-time antagonist of the Trump Administration. He was one of the Democratic politicians who ardently insisted that the President had colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election. He has blamed the President for creating a hostile climate towards journalistic media. And on Wednesday afternoon, Swalwell decided to flex his Trump hatred a little more with this tweet.
While this tweet was admittedly popular, with over 61,000 likes and counting, the comments section is filled with insults from Trump supporters. Even some media figures took the opportunity to mock Swalwell for his false bravery.
Since you’ve been operating in “alternative” universe for years, this should be easy for you. (Try the Russian Tea Room—maybe you’ll finally find your collusion.) https://t.co/GB2YM2TGOT— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) February 20, 2019
