We’re not sure which part of Rep. Eric Swalwell’s tweet is funnier, that he thought anyone would believe a hotel desk agent opened up to him about how America is more corrupt than Eastern Europe OR that Democrats are fixing anything.
Maybe a little bit of both.
Checking into hotel, the desk agent—a US citizen from Eastern Europe—tells me, “Whenever I’d visit my birth country I’d always complain about its corruption. Now when I do that, my friends say, ‘you’re talking to us about corruption?’” and they laugh at me. We are fixing that.

But the bigger question in all of this is did Eric ever get his coffee?!?!
Forget being in government, this guy should consider writing fiction because he is really good at making stuff up.

It's cute that you think corruption is new to our government. We've always had a problem with it.
Regulatory capture and the fact that Congressman leave office far richer then they were when they got there pops to mind 🤔 https://t.co/cFu6WWtVCY

And the whole schoolbus applauded!

How about starting in your own group – as long as the Governor of VA remains in office – your lips are moving but making no sounds.

Oh, yeah, about Governor Ralph Northam …
Still searching for that coffee through the Sunni triangle? Be safe!

We were super worried for him too.
I’ll take “things that didn’t happen” for $1000, Alex

This is obviously a completely real story about a thing that actually happened.

Totally believable. I'll give you props for not saying it was a stranger's 5-year-old.
