The Twitter account of the USS Arizona Memorial slammed 2020 presidential candidate and California Rep. Eric Swalwell after the Democrat used Pearl Harbor as a means to attack President Donald Trump.
After his tweet, the folks running the USS Arizona Memorial slammed Swalwell saying, “We are dismayed at the lack sensitivity to those lives lost on December 7, 1941, by a candidate for [p]resident. These attacks that caused thousands of deaths have no place in this type of political discourse.”

The memorial account was replying to a tweet by Swalwell who used Pearl Harbor as a means to insult Trump.
“Remember that time Pearl Harbor was bombed and FDR called the Emperor of Japan? Or the time the Twin Towers were struck and Bush ringed Osama Bin Laden?” Swalwell wrote on May 8. “No? I don’t either. So why’d @realDonaldTrump call Putin after the Mueller Report was released?”

This is hardly the first time Eric Swalwell made himself look like a fool.
Early this month, Swalwell tried to pander to leftist women by railing against the U.S. Constitution because it does not have the word “woman” in it.
The nearly unknown Democrat candidate for president jumped onto his Twitter account to pander to women with a little factoid about the U.S. Constitution.
“Do you know how many times the word ‘Woman’ is mentioned in the Constitution? Zero,” Swalwell declared.
“That is unacceptable,” he continued. “Women must be equally represented and equally protected,” Swalwell wrote, adding a hashtag in support of the long-dead Equal Rights Amendment.

That is unacceptable. Women must be equally represented and equally protected. #ERANow

Wow. It never mentions “woman.” Golly gee.
First of all, we must remember that from the birth of the English language all the way until about five years ago with braindead PCism took a grip on the throat of academia, the word “woman” was never used as a general or collective term.
The word for people in general was always said in the masculine vein. It was “man” or “mankind.” The term meant all of humanity, not just the male gender. It wasn’t used to denote gender, but to denote all of us collectively.
But, that aside, Swalwell was made to look even dumber when people began to alert him to another little factoid.
Swalwell is right that the word “woman” isn’t in the U.S. Constitution.
But… um… neither is the word “man,” you dolt.
Twitter users went wild slamming this half-witted Democrat for his failed attempt to pander to women.
“Man” isn’t in the Constitution either.

WORDS IN CONSTITUTION
❌ fair / fair share
❌ health / healthcare

Swalwell, sir, you are too stupid to be in government. You should resign.
