Swalwell Publishes Embarrassing Message About the Constitution

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) wants your vote in the 2020 presidential election, but he may first want to brush up on the Constitution. In his own way of trying to stand up for women's rights (or to just court the woman vote?), he tweeted the following observation.

Other social media users, who didn't pretend to be constitutional scholars, were quick to note that the word "man" is mysteriously absent from the document too.

Still, actress Patricia Arquette shared similar sentiments on the Hill Wednesday, when speaking on behalf of the Equal Rights Amendment.

Congress passed the ERA in 1972, but it was never ratified. Wednesday marked the first congressional hearing on the legislation in 36 years. Democrats want it to become law, but conservatives who have voted against the measure say those equal gender rights already exist in 14th Amendment's equal protection clause.

“I voted against this ERA because I think it’s simply not needed,” Virginia legislator Margaret Ransone explained in January. "Never let anyone tell you you need anything other than a strong work ethic to be successful in life."

Recent 2020 polling has Swalwell teetering near the bottom of the group. But, because he garnered at least one percent support, he's qualified for the first two DNC primary debates. Golf clap.
