. REP. ERIC SWALWELL: "Pass the torch," Swalwell told former Vice President Joe Biden two weeks ago. But if he does, Swalwell won't be around to take the handoff. The longshot 2020 candidate, who tried to make a name for himself on cable news shows as the voice of a younger political generation, dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential race Monday. Swalwell ran with gun control at the center of his platform, and he was the first presidential candidate to call not only for a ban on assault-style rifles, but also for the government to buy the ones already in public hands.
In other words, Swalwell is a total idiot. It would be hard to win his Congressional seat much less become president.
