Rep. Eric Swalwell (Dummkopf-CA) took to the House floor Thursday to give an impassioned, grandstanding speech in support of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who was facing a motion to remover her from the House Committee on Foreign Affairs because of her anti-Semitism.
Swalwell stood next to an enlarged image of a tweet by the then minority Republicans on the Judiciary Committee posted last fall that read “Kanye. Elon. Trump.” Swalwell excoriated Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for keeping the tweet up for two months after Kanye West had made anti-Semitic remarks.
Hey MAGA-GOP— take a look in your own damn mirror before you come here looking for Anti-Semitism. pic.twitter.com/0vHv09i6QS

Thursday evening, Swalwell retweeted a satirist Carpe Donktum tweet of a mocking, doctored version of the Swalwell speech complete with farting sounds and a replacement image featuring a satirical Swalwell tweet made up by Carpe Donktum that read, “Feelin cute, might fart on tv, threaten to nuke somebody, or bang a chinese spy later, idk. #YOLO”

Carpe Donktum tweeted the video with a tongue-in-cheek message praising Swalwell for his speech, tagging Swalwell, “I want to thank you @RepSwalwell @ericswalwell for standing up and saying the truth! The person who tweeted that SHOULD BE PROSECUTED!!”

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) piled on Swalwell, “[email protected], honey, you’ve been trolled. You may want to consider firing the Chinese spy running your social media.”
