Did Eric Swalwell Pass Gas on National Television? He Denies It

Who cut the cheese? Eric Swalwell denies it was him that did it when he appeared on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” Monday evening. How politically incorrect of him. What was the carbon footprint on that one?  Some say that he pauses for a small fraction of a second when the wind passed from somebody. If we are going to condemn cows for farting, what should we do with a Democratic congressman if he was really the culprit?

Swalwell appeared with Matthews to discuss the impeachment Inquisition when the unfortunate event occurred. Here is the video. Decide for yourself.

Swalwell was a failed candidate for the Democratic nomination for president. He dropped out of the race first. At the time both he and I were tied in the polls for the nomination at 0%. I’m still tied with a few of the other candidates but let me be clear on this. If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve. (Apologies to William Tecumseh Sherman)

From The Daily Caller

Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell appeared to pass noticeable gas on live television Monday, despite reportedly denying it was him.

The California lawmaker was making an appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” Monday evening to discuss the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Unfortunately for Swalwell, he was the one speaking and observably pausing when viewers heard the noise.


Swalwell’s apparent antics put him in rare company, at least when it comes to lawmakers allegedly farting live on MSNBC. In 2011, former Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank was the club’s first known member.
