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?
Are these the same troops you would authorize to nuke US citizens if we don’t hand over our weapons?

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

So when is your next trip to a combat zone?

We’re guessing no time soon.
As a firearms owner who runs the constant risk of nuclear annihilation from @RepSwalwell, I know what also want to voice my appreciation for our troops.

This went well, Swalwell. *eye roll*
Thank you to gun owners, who despite congressmen threatening to nuke them, refuse to turn over their arms
