Embroiled in #FartGate Controversy, Rep. Eric Swalwell Denies Farting on Live TV

Embroiled in #FartGate Controversy, Rep. Eric Swalwell Denies Farting on Live TV

Conspiracy theories abound

During a live interview on MSNBC Monday evening, Rep. Swalwell a very loud, unmistakable fart-sounding noise overpowered the mic.

Just listen. Sound up.

The comments… ??

And then #FartGate was trending on Twitter:

As news stories go, Swalwell was questioned about the incident and denied he farted.

The real culprit? A mug. Allegedly.

“I’m Eric Swalwell, and I approved this message!”

So what did AOC say about Fartwell? That sounded larger than any cow fart I have heard. If a huge part of the Arctic falls off today we know who to blame.

In other news, rumor has it Eric (or Air-Reek as he is known to friends) just bought a card board cut out dog to carry around with him and place under his chair.

I shall revel in this brief return to the humor and pleasures of my Junior High School days. But in truth, Rep. Swalwell is indeed a poopy head.

The Horror…

I believe the old English common law presumption that we were taught in law school applies here: Cui ille negavit eum, praebuerintne. (Trans.: “He who denied it, supplied it!”)

Eric Smellwell? Nobody ever hear of this guy until now. This will be his big historic moment in the national dialogue. Digging deeper will not reveal anything worth knowing. He is just another ambitious Schiff-type one-note tuba but even dumber.

Not a mug. I thought someone was pranking him.

I didn’t know we were allowed to fart on TV.

Sometimes the real inner Eric Swalwell just comes out.

Audible evidence Mr. Swalwell is full of something other than facts.

Probably the most sensible thing to ever come out of the Congressman.

Proof that he is nothing but a gas bag.

Seems it was coming out both ends what he lies about taxpayer money being used to strong-arm Ukraine and conveniently forgets that was QUID PRO JOE, not Trump.

“I Democrat, therefore I fart.”

With all due respect to everyone, tell me why this is of any importance?

    Because while the Democrats accuse Trump of being crude, violating the norms of civility, and lowering the level of discourse, he has never sunk so low as to fart during an interview on national TV.

When Whoopie Cushions are outlawed, only outlaws will have Whoopie Cushions.

In the Old Days – SNL would have presented an childish but hysterically funny skit about this. But, unfortunately they are too partisan to highlight fartgate today.

Yes, whenever I scrape the bottom of my coffee mug on a hard surface, it sounds EXACTLY like a fart.

Wow! No one even pulled his finger! Typical Leftist: rude, crude and socially unacceptable.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (Senator Fart) should lead an investigation into this important subject.

You may remember that Whitehouse grilled Kavanaugh for half an hour over the fart jokes he wrote in his high-school annual at age 17. Whitehouse should be pleased and proud to investigate whether Salwell lied to Congress about this impeachable offense.

Obviously Swalwell was never a Navy SEAL — they’re masters of “silent but deadly.”

Let’s face it, there’s nothing funnier than a fart. Doesn’t matter where or when, though in an elevator or at church adds value.

As Cortez and waters are the dumbest, this guy is the first mentally retarded person ever elected to congress.

No exaggeration.

The Congressman was once a contender
Whose low polling was a campaign ender
With no one to blame
He earned 15 seconds of fame
When #fartgate made Swalwell the top trender

If only he had gotten this much attention and notoriety when running for President…


When “Bad Lip Reading” gets around to doing their take on the Democrat debates, they should just use the soundtrack from that campfire scene in “Blazing Saddles.”
