Alright, we’re going to be honest before we dive too deep into this one: if you think we’d be above this, you’re completely wrong.
During an interview on Hardball with MSNBC host Chris Matthews, Rep. Eric Swalwell, who somehow managed to run for president with almost no one realizing, appears to let out a large degree of flatulence on live television.
Okay, we’re done trying to be polite here: it looks and sounds like Swalwell is farting, and it’s absolutely hilarious to watch.
Predictably, this became very important news for everyone else in the media to zero in on. Obviously, we’re not putting ourselves above anyone in this example. How could we?
The funniest part is that the former Democratic presidential candidate — again, who had almost no support at all — completely denies letting one loose during the interview with Matthews. That’s odd, because the video seems to tell a very different story.
Always happy to cover up for Fartocrats, er, Democrats, doing literally anything, MSNBC cooked up a convenient excuse which you’ll see in the video below.
