Eric Swalwell Heckled By Republicans During Anti-Trump Rant On House Floor (VIDEO)

Now that Eric Swalwell has dropped his 2020 run for president, he is back up to his old tricks in the House.

He recently went on a tirade calling Trump a racists, but got called out by Republicans who have had it with this garbage.

The Washington Examiner reports:

WATCH: Eric Swalwell shouted down by House chairwoman and Republicans after saying ‘s–thole’

Republicans erupted against Rep. Eric Swalwell on Tuesday evening after he used the word “s–thole” on the House floor, leading the House chairwoman to slam the gavel to restore order.

“We have an opportunity today to condemn or condone,” Swalwell began, referring to President Trump’s rhetoric. “Birtherism is racist. Saying a Mexican judge can’t be fair because of his heritage is racist. Saying immigrants from Mexico are rapists is racist.

Saying there were good people on both sides in Charlottesville is racist. Calling African countries ‘s–thole countries’ is racist, and telling four members of this body to go home is racist.”

Republicans started shouting “order” at the California Democrat for breaking parliamentary rules of decorum that forbid profanity.

Swalwell, 38, started arguing with Republican Georgia Rep. Doug Collins before the chairwoman slammed the gavel and said: “The gentleman from California is out of order. Gentleman from California shall suspend.”

Here’s something the media has largely ignored. One of the reasons Swalwell dropped his presidential run is because he’s facing a challenger for his House seat.

Five Thirty Eight reports:

Why Eric Swalwell’s Campaign Failed

Eric Swalwell, we hardly knew ye. The Democrat announced on Monday that he was dropping out of the presidential race to instead focus on his duties as the U.S. representative of California’s 15th District.

Altogether, Swalwell’s White House bid lasted about three months. (He formally launched his bid in early April.) And his departure marks the first of what will surely be a lengthy series of presidential campaign obituaries from FiveThirtyEight. After all, only one Democrat can win the nomination, and more than 20 major candidates are in the race.

But to prime you for what’s to come, in each installment of this series, we’ll discuss why the candidate’s campaign failed and what that means for the candidates still running…

Another reason he may have dropped out early: Swalwell is already facing a Democratic challenger for his House seat. The congressman had previously said he wouldn’t run for both president and Congress at the same time, and he still had plenty of time to decide if he would seek reelection to Congress.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if he lost his House seat anyway?
