U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell sparked immediate criticism after clueless commentary about the “new crew” of Republicans who are “indecent to their core.”
The California Democrat was handed a self-check mirror on Twitter after whining about Republican politicians cheering on the ‘Let’s go Brandon’ chants, including the latest one that seemed to set Swalwell off.
An Oregon father of four told President Joe Biden ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ on Christmas Eve during a live-streamed call, setting off a meltdown on the left.
“I refuse to believe we are this indecent as people. Not on Christmas Eve. And not to a person who lost his wife and daughter at Christmastime. We are better than this. Be kind and #Merry Christmas,” Swalwell tweeted.
Jared Schmeck, 35, insisted he meant the remark as a joke and said “and now I am being attacked for utilizing my freedom of speech,” according to The Oregonian.
“He seems likes he’s a cordial guy. There’s no animosity or anything like that. It was merely just an innocent jest to also express my God-given right to express my frustrations in a joking manner…I love him just like I love any other brother or sister,” Schmeck added about the president.
But Swalwell was having none of it, calling Schmeck “pathetic” in another tweet on Christmas.
Don’t waste your time on the pathetic dad who humiliated his family to say F-U to the president on Christmas Eve. He’s irrelevant. Spend your time asking why Republican leaders are celebrating him. This isn’t my parents’ Republican Party. This new crew are indecent to their core. https://t.co/DQdMR6HnMN

But the Democrat’s outrage earned him a swift reminder of his own “indecent” behavior after reports of his alleged intimate relations with Chinese spy Fang Fang.

Twitter users also gave Swalwell a reality check with a reminder of just how not decent his own party has been.

Remember, these are the same people who cheered the lady to flipped off Trump and spent the past five years calling him Hitler.
They’re not really outraged by this.
It’s an act. https://t.co/akpNp7x7FB

You ran around telling everybody that would listen to you that President Trump was a Russian asset planted in the US presidency, yet you showed ZERO evidence. You on the other hand were involved with a Chinese spy, intimately. https://t.co/AMT0qu4UXy
