Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who thinks President Trump is a Russian agent (and, yes, I will mention this every day until the primary), has made another farfetched comparison. On Twitter, he put special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation on par with the attack on Pearl Harbor and the September 11 terror attacks by way of condemning Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin.
Remember that time Pearl Harbor was bombed and FDR called the Emperor of Japan? Or the time the Twin Towers were struck and Bush ringed Osama Bin Laden? No? I don’t either. So why’d @realDonaldTrump call Putin after the Mueller Report was released? #CommanderInCheat— Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) May 8, 2019
It didn't take someone with years of foreign policy experience to note that one of these things is not like the others. The first two resulted in real death and real tragedy.
Clearly, you slept in that day in 5th grade when they taught your class what an "analogy" is. #dontnukemebro— Marc Montague (@mtm007dawg) May 9, 2019
For those that lost their lives at Pearl Harbor and on 9/11 you have disgraced their memories as a sitting US congressman to make such an absurd analogy.— Elliot Sambol, MD (@esambolmd) May 9, 2019
Swalwell is polling near the bottom of the 2020 Democratic field. On the plus side, with his successfully reaching one percent support in recent surveys, he has just squeaked into the first two DNC debates. Now he can share his interesting ideas beyond his Twitter audience.
