Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) might be the dumbest Democratic candidate in the 2020 race which, in a crowded field of more-so-than usual whacko moonbats, is a pretty tough thing to pull off. With the charisma of Gumby, Swalwell somehow managed to prove these past few days he's not even worth half a bag of potato chips and that he's afraid to debate political opponents of the fairer sex.
First, his Twitter team tweeted the following question on Thursday. "$1 could buy you half a bag of chips OR it could save us from a crumbling government. How will you spend yours?"

How will you spend yours? https://t.co/Pv5VZ5WDWg
This, of course, prompted hundreds of replies featuring Twitter users' favorite kinds of chips. (Mine, for the record, are found only on the west coast and are conveniently named Tim's Chips.) It seems many people would rather spend their money a salty snack than donate to a congressman who it seems like his only qualification is that he was the first in his family to go to college, and also that he wants to nuke citizens who do not want to give up their guns.
At least Rep. Swalwell is honest about wanting to take our Second Amendment rights. However, just because he is honest about that does not mean he has the facts to back up his reasoning. More to the point, when challenged by National Rife Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch, Rep. Swalwell issued an arguably sexist attack replete with liberal elitism so many across the country disdain.
A few days ago, Loesch tweeted asking the congressman, "How do you plan to confiscate guns?" and following it up by saying, "BTW —
@ericswalwell has dodged legitimate questions about his gun confiscation-and-jail policy for quite some time."
Swalwell has previously said that he is running president because "I see you. I hear you. I'm for you. I AM you." Yet when challenged by a strong woman in a position of power like Loesch, he reverts and essentially says, "No not you, I meant a man."
He responded to Loesch's inquiries saying, "Ms. Loesch — I see you’ve spent another day blowing up my Twitter. Thank you for following! But here’s the deal, you’re an
@nra mouthpiece. I don’t aim down, so I don’t debate mouthpieces. But send me your president, @OliverLNorth. I’ll debate him anywhere. #EnoughIsEnough."

So to clarify, Swalwell thinks the national spokeswoman for the NRA, author, radio show host, columnist, and an American citizen is simply a "mouthpiece" and somehow beneath him. He openly admits this while asking Americans to elect him to the presidency? What an idiot.
