Alex Seitz-Wald is a political reporter for NBC news covering the 2020 election.
He decided to fact check a a GOP talking point that was going to be used against Congressman Eric Swalwell’s run for President.
Armed with the best of pro-Democrat of intentions, he bravely charged at the GOP, only to be struck down by reality.
It is glorious to behold.
Here are the two images he shared.
The GOP talking point.
The Tweet in evidence from Swalwell himself.
This blog and the gun community as a whole has covered this story about “Nuke ’em” Swalwell, but apparently this didn’t penetrate much into America’s Blue spheres.
Of course there are the Lefties who vehemently hate gun owners and don’t mind killing us all, but there are a lot more moderates out there who I don’t think appreciate the idea of an American President contemplating using nuclear weapons, even in jest, on US citizens.
It seems that Mr. Seitz-Wald is in the later camp.
His Swalwell bubble has burst. It will be interesting if as he fact checks more GOP talking points, if his support for the Democrats can weather their insanity.
