Eric Swalwell seems fairly confident that he’s got a shot at the Democrats’ 2020 nomination, but he also has admitted that there’s a problem that should first be addressed before he can be taken seriously by his side:
SPOILER ALERT: I'm a white man.
I know where I can't speak to someone else's experience and I pledge to:
1️⃣ Pass the mic
2️⃣ Ask a woman to serve as VP pic.twitter.com/yz7hUB3bRA

It seems he basically just accidentally nuked himself:
✔️ Tweets video of him saying "I don't think anyone's identity should hold them back"
✔️ announces men need not apply to be his Vice President
✔️ probably doesn't see the contradiction pic.twitter.com/QDZRM7DqGt

Wow, Swalwell just out-woked himself!
This is hilarious. It’s basically a “woke” white guy offering the women he’s running against scraps. Hard to believe this isn’t parody, but here we are.

So you are advocating racial discrimination and believe 'giving' a woman the position of Vice President is somehow an act of gender equality? 🤨
Why aren't you offering to be the VP to female candidate? https://t.co/mtVuFapdUO

Why don't you ask a woman to serve as president then? https://t.co/rpZVttCDAZ

Swalwell seems to have painted himself into a corner here.

Well, he might pass them the mic, that’s for sure.
Pledge to Pander 2020? @ericswalwell

1. Pass the mic
2. Leave forever

Swalwell’s excuse for not wanting to debate Dana Loesch proved that he’s not really serious about wanting to pass the mic to a woman — at least not one that might dare to disagree with him.
