It must be tough these days being a Democratic Presidential candidate. The Russian conspiracy hoax you pimped out for years has unraveled like a sweater bought at a communist-run department store, and there are so many other candidates that getting noticed in the herd is growing more difficult.
Eric Swalwell decided he needed to establish some traction, so he decided to send out a tweet showing his bona fides. While straining to cater to select voters his desperation is what was really waving in the wind.
I fly these flags 365 days a year. pic.twitter.com/MsI1uQzDZ0

Quite a few people noticed something about the appearance of this flag that he claims to fly.
You should have ironed it when you took it out of the wrapper.

Fresh out the box from Amazon…

Yes, that thing has not been flying for even 365 minutes. Unless, maybe he keeps it stored in the closet? (ahem)
Dude the folds..,is your campaign a spoof? If it is, it’s awesome!

As a member of your district I request that you steam that flag.

He bought the rainbow flag when he went out shopping with Kamala Harris looking for aprons.

This does seem to be the trend among the Dems — “Look how natural I am doing this regular-person stuff…with items my staff recently purchased for a social media post!”
Notice too that of all the colors on that flag it lacks the shade of brown, that is currently on his nose.
The Swalwell "I have a black friend" photo is moments away. https://t.co/mnmrZqUO9h

Wonder if the black friend will also look so fresh out of the package?

And he has that jewish couple whose house he goes to for Passover dinner every year

Did he already partake in the required ritual of learning to eat fried chicken with his hands?

And, not as if the blatant move to display his “proper” stance was obviously staged, there is some additional evidence to further give his post more colors of hilarity. Siraj Hashmi of the Washington Examiner found an image of Swalwell’s office from months ago, and there seems a notable omission.

We all know of politicians who do not keep campaign promises. Swalwell has done the remarkable thing and proven he cannot even keep his campaign claims straight. Wow, here’s hoping he stays in the race for a very long time this campaign season!
