Here’s the real challenge for Rep. Eric Swalwell, stop trying to outdo Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the dumbest tweets of the day. We get it, he wants to run for president (ha ha ha ha ha) but tweeting stuff like this isn’t the way to do it.
Then again, maybe we should encourage these tweets, like this one where he challenged people to scrub Trump’s stains or something. It isn’t quite as ridiculous as his nuke tweet but it’s up there:
Here’s our challenge these next two years…AND I hope you choose to accept it: we must scrub the stains of Trump’s corruption from our democracy. BUT we must not be so jaded by that duty that we stop believing our future can be brighter than our past. It still is.

Ok ok ok, that one was childish.
But this editor totally laughed.
Did you take nukes off the table yet, or are they still in play?

He will never live that nukes thing down.
Or, you'll nuke us if we don't. Got it.

The fact that we’re not a democracy is the least of your issues here, but…

A few nukes ought to do it.

Term limits on all congress members would be a fantastic start.

We don’t disagree.
You spelled 6 years wrong…

And Eric tried so hard here too.
