Rumors are floating around that Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA) wants to run for president in 2020 … stop laughing. Ok, you can laugh a little, we did too because that is some funny shiznit. Yes, the same guy who said he would nuke Americans who refused to give up their guns wants to be president.

Let that sink in a little bit.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, there is a story making the rounds on Twitter about a former unnamed White House official telling people that Trump fears for his life in combat zones and that’s why he doesn’t like going.

Apparently, Swalwell thought this was a good opportunity to dunk on Trump:

We get that he’s trying to pander to the troops but yeah … this was really dumb. And to tag #Thanksgiving?

Dude.

This nuke thing isn’t going away, Swalwell, and no amount of Snopes stories can change that.

What he said.

We’re guessing no time soon.

Amen.

This went well, Swalwell. *eye roll*

Amen (again).
