As Twitchy reported Monday, 2020 hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand announced that at last, over the weekend, she’d finally reached the 65,000-donor threshold, guaranteeing her a spot at the first Democratic primary debate. It was either that or place in three national polls specified by the DNC.
We’ve noted quite a few times the instances where candidate Eric Swalwell has made a video begging for just a dollar, because it looks like he’s not going to qualify for the debates with these poll numbers:
Eric Swalwell has received 0% of the vote in 24 consecutive national polls.

There’s a reason for that. No one likes him.

No one likes being threatened with a nuclear strike, either.
Maybe threatening to use nuclear weapons on citizens wasn't the smartest of ideas.

He's lulling them into a false sense of security.

He could still make it to the White House. Maybe Kamala Harris will pull an Obama and decide she needs her own white dude who says stupid things to balance out her ticket.
Nowhere to go but up!

Don’t forget … he’s the son of two Republicans, so he can’t even count on mom and dad.
Just one dollar, guys!
— Chris W. (@ChrisW23599296) June 11, 2019
Just $1 and he might just win this thing. Just one.

I would rather use a dollar to buy an item from Taco Bell’s dollar menu and get diarrhea from it than to donate even one cent to his sorry campaign.
— The Great Makhno (@M92020597) June 11, 2019
Remember when he was dumb enough to remind people they could take the dollar they could donate to his campaign and buy half a bag of chips instead? He lost in a landslide to half a bag of chips.
America has spoken

He has to be the worst candidate in history. Dennis Kucinich at least believed in aliens, which was good for comic relief.

Definitely the dark horse candidate. Definitely.

Maybe if he offers to cure cancer like Joe Biden he’ll have a chance.

Please someone send a message to @ericswalwell that changing diapers is better use of his time. At least he seems to be good at it

Since his one issue is gun control, I consider this a success…

Plus, don’t forget that one time he walked an extra block in a Manhattan “snowstorm” so he didn’t have to buy coffee at Trump Tower … what a hero.
This is the one good thing about him

Seems a little high.

Don't worry. That number may double soon. 🙂

Damn, I might vote in their primary just to support him.

Nobody wants a guy that looks like he got bullied in school

I bet the best name recognition for this guy comes from all the news coverage about him polling at zero.

What’s his percentage likelihood of getting a book deal or cable commentary gig
— AV Newbie (@atwatervillage) June 11, 2019
Probably pretty good; he’s always been in front of CNN’s camera when they need someone to bash Trump. Maybe he can intern as Jim Acosta’s bodyguard for a year to get a feel for cable news.
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
