Eric Swalwell, the Democrat Rep who said he’d “nuke” American gun owners if they refused to turn their weapons over, is now running for president.
Swalwell was responding to independent journalist Joe Biggs, who said there would be a “war” if the government ever tried to take our weapons.
And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.

Former Congressman Trey Gowdy believes that the term “President Swalwell” should scare the hell out of every American.
Bizpacreview.com reported that former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy took a brutal shot at Democrat presidential candidate Eric Swalwell on Friday, telling Fox News host Martha MacCallum that the thought of him winning the election and becoming president should “scare the ever-living hell out of you.”
“President Eric Swalwell, that ought to scare the ever-living hell out of you,” he bluntly said on FNC’s “The Story with Martha MacCallum” after the host played a clip of Swalwell speaking on MSNBC about the otherwise debunked Russian collusion delusion conspiracy theory.

Former congressman Trey Gowdy blasted 2020 presidential candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., Friday for continuing to claim that President Trump is a Russian asset.
“President Eric Swalwell, that ought to scare the ever-living hell out of you,” Gowdy told “The Story with Martha MacCallum” while reacting to a clip of Swalwell on MSNBC.
The Mueller report published last month revealed that investigators did not establish evidence that the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia.
Swalwell seems to think otherwise.
“Here’s what we know. The Russians helped Donald Trump,” Swalwell said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber.”
“Sure, but to be clear you are no longer maintaining that he is effectively a ‘Russian asset,'” MSNBC host Ari Melber interjected.
“No, I think he acts on Russia’s behalf and I challenge him to show me otherwise,” Swalwell responded.
Gowdy accused Swalwell of playing politics.
“His last sentence is exactly the difference between a prosecutor and a politician. Prosecutors prove that you did something, politicians make you prove you did not. Did you hear his last sentence? ‘I challenge President Trump to prove that he did not do something.’ That’s what politicians do,” Gowdy said.
Swalwell, who has long been a critic of the president, announced he was running for president earlier this month.
