As we said the other day when 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Eric Swalwell was soliciting donations for his campaign, we wonder if he’s noticed that he’s polling at around zero percent among currently declared candidates.
His first thought, when confronted with the logistics of his gun confiscation plan, was to threaten to deploy nukes on U.S. citizens. He embarrassed himself on cable news by being one of the loudest voices saying how the Mueller report would take down Trump. He embarrassed himself further by refusing to debate Dana Loesch on guns, demanding instead to talk to a man at the NRA.
And the other day his followers overwhelmingly chose to spend a hypothetical dollar on half a bag of chips rather than contribute to his campaign. Now he’s back and he wants five bucks.
5 to remove 45.
That’s all I’m asking for. $5 to get rid of the hatred, the bigotry, the lying.

Wait, what happened to a dollar? Damn, for 5 dollars I can get two family-size bags of chips.

You just literally talked down to a woman, @DLoesch, and asked to speak to the man in charge even tho she’s the expert. You’re the hateful bigot and it won’t cost us a thing for you to drop out

I'll save my money and buy ammo
— American phoenix (@TheAmericanphoe) April 20, 2019
At today's prices, that $5 buys 20 rounds of 5.56 ammo. I think I'll go to the range.

I just threw $5 in the trash. MUCH better investment.

Seriously: every time we see an Eric Swalwell campaign ad pop up in our feed now we get hungry for potato chips. That’s probably not the effect he wanted.
The choice is yours: Are you going to buy half a bag of chips or donate to Eric Swalwell’s campaign? https://t.co/PaHOzXnapf
