Did He or Didn’t He? Congress Man Swalwell Says ‘It Wasn’t Me’ #FartGate

Published

Lightening up Monday night’s gloomy politics was California Congressman Eric Swalwell during a live interview on MSNB’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews”.

The congressman was at the middle of his sentence when suddenly there was something that sounded like a rip.

Rep. Swalwell was saying “Chris, so far the evidence is uncontradicted that the presided used taxpayer dollars to help him cheat…” made a pause and there was that noise “. an election” he continued and smiled slightly. Viewers may have heard it themselves but the congressman who has been sitting since 2013 on the Judiciary Committee denied it.

A text reply from Buzzfeed’s Addy Baird, who sent a video of it and posted “A text I never thought I’d send. It said, “I’m really sorry about this but I have to ask if this was you or someone in the studio.” Swalwell immediately answered back “It was not me!!!! ““Ha. And I didn’t hear it when I was speaking.” Baird replied, “You look like you heard it and are stifling a laugh”. Cong. Swalwell again replied “I def did not hear it”. 

His denials included a defend. MSNBC explained and tweeted “Sorry to disappoint the conspiracy theorists – it was the #hardball mug scraping across the desk. Get yours today and let’s get back to the news!” He made a reply to MSNBC’s explanation on hardball mug “TOTAL EXONERATION!”

The Twitter world have their own views. One said, “It is real you can tell the pause he takes to push it out”. Another said, “the slight pause as he realizes he can’t hold it any longer is pure gold.” Another Twitter user said “We flipped it back several times, you can see the laugh in his eyes”

Conspiracy theories like – he is responsible for and he reacted by smiling during that pause in the middle of his sentence.

What did people have to say about the Swalwell FARTGATE?

Hardball’s official Twitter seem to be having fun with the latest clip by tweeting different memes.

By Tuesday morning #fartgate was viral on the social media.

Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican also couldn’t resist about the viral clip. This Texas lawmaker made a tweet that shows a movie from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, a character showing that he farted at the table to relieve himself. On that video was a caption “Leaked footage of Swalwell on MSNBC last night”.

Cruz might not have forgotten about Swalwell’s trolling to him before online. The congressman went after this Republican senator for retweeting President Trump’s not to build a Trump Tower in Greenland. Swalwell said “Those houses are how small you looked when you let @realDonaldTrump trash your wife.”

Swalwell was one of the candidates who dropped out of the 2020 presidential race in July.

This definitely is not the first awkward moment caught live on camera. There were also some silences and sounds that happened before. The Democrat made a lighter sense regarding the issue and wrote on his Twitter “This, too, shall pass.” Eventually people still are enjoying this icebreaker from the serious politics right now.
