Fartgate: Did Eric Swalwell Fart On TV Or Not!?

November 19, 2019 / Posted by:

TMZ says that there’s a new political scandal rocking America. #Fartgate is here and is making us ask the question: Did one-time Presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell just fart on national television? And let’s be real, does it drive me absolutely insane because adding the suffix “-gate” to something does not make it a political drama as “Watergate” was named after the Watergate Hotel and not some kind of water-related scandal? Yes. Do I still enjoy people having a laugh at some politician’s fart-related expense? Absolutely.

While on Hardball with Chris Matthews to talk about the impeachment hearings, Eric seemed to have not been able to keep his tight cheeks together. It appeared that he had let a massive fart rip during the live broadcast and that bitch was so loud it got caught on the mic:

At first I was like, “That is not a fart.” But the more I watch it, the more I’m like, “Okay that is so a fart.” The kicker for me is the immediate lull in his speaking, like the fart slipping out of him stole his momentary focus. Also how close to his ass is that microphone? I’ll admit that Eric is sort of a Political Zaddy but my god, take one step back from his asshole, mic-person.

People on the internet fell on both sides of the issue, but there were many who were ready to defend Eric’s good name as a non-farter:

Queen of Twitter, Chrissy Teigen, weighed in on this too:

Two things. One: once I read the vibrating phone suggestion it made me realize the “fart” sounds like my phone when Grindr vibrates–so someone in those MSNBC offices is trying to get some good dick. Good luck. Second: this reminds me of a time my friend asked me if you could queef from your butt because she thought she had during sex, and I explained to her that a queef from your butt is a fart–so she had farted on her boyfriend’s face. To be honest, I think I’d rather fart on live TV than on someone’s face. Sorry, girl.
