Democrat Eric Swalwell Cries the Word ‘Woman’ Not in U.S. Constitution, Gets Slammed for ONE Little Problem
Eric Swalwell has little integrity and now we also know he cannot read after he was seen pandering to women with the factoid that the word “woman” is not in the U.S. Constitution. But it was not long before people with more smarts than he found one little problem with his blather.
Swalwell is known for a major lack of intelligence, but like most Democrats he is an expert at pandering to grievance groups. And on Tuesday he showed us once again just how good he is at belching out nonsense to appeal to a particular grievance group.
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.
Do you know how many times the word "Woman" is mentioned in the Constitution?
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.
