Rep. Eric Swalwell called out those opposing the nomination of Neera Tanden as OMB director, saying he can’t tell “little girls of South Asian descent that they’ll have the same opportunities in life as white men”:
I represent one of the largest Indian-American districts in U.S. How do I look at what’s happening to @neeratanden and tell little girls of South Asian descent that they’ll have the same opportunities in life as white men? The answer: I can’t. And that’s a shame. https://t.co/EaZ4bhXR3I

This didn’t keep him from challenging then Sen. Harris for the nomination, by the way. Why did he think a white man was better for the job of president?
The VP is a South Asian woman…. https://t.co/hgUvI56xOB

And it’s not like Tanden was going to sail right through anyway:
this is bizarre–Tanden has problems because she publicly alienated all the people who might help her out on this one https://t.co/rGCCC4daiF
