Americans Applaud Eric Swalwell For Expertly Trolling The MAGA Faithful On Twitter

Few people have been more of a thorn in the side of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump than California Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell.

Swalwell, you may recall, has even sued Trump and his allies over the January 6 Capitol insurrection, as CNN reported in March of last year:

The new lawsuit … by Swalwell, a California Democrat who helped to lead impeachment arguments against Trump for inciting insurrection, follows a similar suit filed last month by Rep. Bennie Thompson against Trump, Giuliani and the extremist groups the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys. Swalwell’s case makes some of the same claims as Thompson’s — citing a civil rights law meant to counter the Ku Klux Klan’s intimidation of elected officials.

But it also alleges Trump, Trump Jr., Giuliani and Brooks broke Washington, DC, laws, including an anti-terrorism act, by inciting the riot, and that they aided and abetted violent rioters and inflicted emotional distress on the members of Congress.

And now Swalwell is trolling the Donald’s fanatical (and sometimes dangerous) followers, who showed up in Florence, Arizona Saturday night for what Rolling Stone called Trump playing “the hits,” even though those so-called “hits” still suck:

The rally, much like the one that preceded it, was a rehash of the Big Lie, the same dangerous rhetoric that encouraged Trump’s supporters to launch a violent attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, posing a real threat to our democracy. But the attempted coup failed, dooming Trump to holding rallies and feeding his supporters a steady stream of bullshit to keep them fired up for the midterms and his potential 2024 run. After all, supporters will continue to show up and treat him as the god emperor they believe him to be.

Right-wing Newsmax, on the other hand, had this take on the Arizona rally:

Almost a like a cult following? Try exactly like a cult following, and let’s be sure and recall how cults usually end. If you need a hint, just Google “Jonestown massacre” or “Heaven’s Gate.”

That was all it took for Swalwell to lay one hell of an internet burn on the MAGA morons who showed up in Arizona and seem to show up everywhere the Orange Menace happens to set up a stage where he can vomit out his lies:

That set off waves of applause and agreement on social media:
