Tucker Carlson lost his patience with a Democrat Representative in a series of messages the other day.
That Representative was none other than Eric Swalwell.
Here’s some background on that story.
Tucker Carlson recently covered Swalwell’s latest scandal, in which Carlson revealed that Swalwell spent thousands of dollars at a hotel where his wife is an executive, and on other extravagant purchases that Carlson says “seem suspiciously like personal luxuries.” Carlson then noted, “Most interestingly on the disclosure form, more than $20,000.00 of Eric Swalwell’s campaign expenditures went to the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Half Moon Bay, California. Now, weirdly or maybe not so weirdly, Eric Swalwell’s wife is an executive at that very hotel.” It is important to note that campaign finance reports are factual and required by law, not something Carlson or Fox News invented, as Swalwell seems to claim.National File
Doesn’t seem like Swalwell is being upfront with the American people about what he’s doing with donor money.
He could even be violating the law, although that remains to be seen.
Carlson wanted to get his views on this situation, and this is what happened when he tried.

Swalwell’s remarks aren’t important, as he’s just mindlessly complaining.
Carlson was right to ask for Swalwell’s views on this story.
Again, Carlson simply read campaign finance reports and noted that Swalwell spent $20,000 at his wife’s business using money raised from his political supporters. “She’s a pregnant mom of a 4 ear old and a 2 year old. Hit me all you like. But to go after here. That’s just wrote,” wrote Swalwell, with notably bad grammar. In response, Carlson simply replied, “Coward.”National File
Swalwell refused to engage with the substance of Carlson’s claims, and simply avoided them.
It’s no wonder he got called a coward.
This behavior is the very definition of cowardice.
Carlson did nothing wrong.
