I am absolutely thrilled at the Socialist Democrats “who are hopping into the 2020 clown car” as Matt Vespa recently wrote about those seeking the Presidential nomination. Vespa caught my attention on an April 15 post describing the newest anti-gun lunatic to throw his hat in the ring to run for President.
He was exposing Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and his statements about gun control. Swalwell reminds me personally of the rude, obnoxious and cowardly senators who sat on the Senate Judiciary Committee slandering Judge Kavanaugh daily through his confirmation hearings. 
Notice the crudest of the Socialist Democrats sitting on that committee making public “donkeys” out of themselves, if you know what I mean, are running for President: Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Sen. Kamala Harris and Sen. Cory Booker all treated Kavanaugh worse than a lifelong, convicted serial rapist. 
They never gave him due process and would’ve shamelessly raped the Constitution if saner heads had not prevailed. And they’re running for President. I guess they figure the more slanderous they can treat conservatives the better. Do they honestly think that will win the hearts of Americans?
Have fun in the “clown car,” folks. It’s conservatives’ turn to place the faces of all those running on the Socialist Democrat ticket as clowns in the clown car. The leftists did it when the Republicans had 17 running in 2016.
Swalwell comes from the same cloth as those who act like “donkeys” at televised committee hearings and then some. He still openly and publically claims President Trump is an agent of the Russian government. And, he stands with those Socialist Democrats who are convinced they can impeach the President.
This man sits in the House of Representatives? OMG.
Apparently California voters in his district scraped the bottom of the barrel to find this man. And leftists wonder why Californians are fleeing that state as fast as rats on a sinking garbage scow.
But let’s get back to Vespa’s report. He was pointing out Swalwell’s gun banning plans. Assault rifles are Swalwell’s main target as he said recently on CNN speaking with Jake Tapper.
“… the reason I have proposed this is because these weapons are so devastating. I have seen this as a prosecutor in the cases that I’ve prosecuted. We have seen these in the school shootings, from Sandy Hook to Parkland,” Swalwell said. 
Funny he didn’t explain why district attorneys and leftist judges don’t prosecute laws on the books or severely punish offenders.
“But it’s not just the violence that they have caused. It’s the fear, the immeasurable fear, that our children live in, because they (assault rifles) are still on our streets. I want to get rid of that fear,” Swalwell added.
Again, he fails to tell all those millions living in the “hoods” of every major city in the nation how to deal with their fears of just walking down the street because of all the gangs and drug cartels. These criminals carry all kinds of guns, and banning assault rifles isn’t going to diminish the fear those people live with daily. Or keep them safe.
Anyway, Swalwell goes on to say he “would jail gun owners” should he become president of the United States.
Just when you think the “clown car” is full, Swalwell squeezes his way in.
It’s just more great news for supporters of Trump and ensuring he wins in a major, major landside in 2020.
La, la dee dah, la dee dah; “Send in the Clowns.”
