(TNS) One of the Garbage Party’s biggest conspiracy nuts is Eric Swalwell of California, whose short-lived presidential campaign only served to reinforce the theory that not all Democrat voters are crazy.

This toady, who once suggested that American patriots defending the Second Amendment would be subjected to a nuclear strike, was a guest on Martha McCallum’s Fox News program Wednesday, following the Democrats’ lackluster impeachment show in which Republicans took apart the allegations that President Trump screwed over Ukraine.
In reference to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, who was being paid upwards of 80 grand a month by a Ukrainian company under investigation for corruption — while his father served as point man on Ukraine on behalf of President Obama — McCallum asked Swalwell:
“Let me ask you this. If Eric Trump got a job on the board of a company in Turkey, would you be okay with that? Would you think that should be something that would be looked into?”
The question was particularly relevant because Turkish President Racep Erdogan met with President Trump in Washington on Wednesday.
Duke Nukem enters deflection mode.
Swalwell tried to say the Trump kids are benefiting business wise from their father’s presidency, but MacCallum quickly shut that down and reminded him of the question at hand.
“Would you, or would you not, if one of them, after he became president, suddenly became an advisor to an energy company in Turkey or Ukraine, you would say, ‘I’m not interested in that’? That is what you’re saying right now,” she explained.
“We have open investigations into the Trump family for their corrupt practices, Martha,” he replied.
Democrats do this all the time. They try to equate President Trump’s children with the disgustingly dishonest business practices of the Biden kid. But of course, there is no comparison; the president’s children were very well ensconced in the Trump empire long before he ran for president.
They have never needed daddy to secure them a cushy board member job at a corrupt foreign corporation that was currently under investigation — because they already had great jobs within their own corporation.
Nor have they ever needed Daddy Trump as president to threaten postponement of aid to a foreign country unless that country fired the prosecutor looking into the corrupt company that hired a son or daughter.
While that country was being invaded.
“Those situations are not parallel!” MacCallum told Swalwell, stating the obvious. “I’m asking you a specific question. I’m saying if they had never been in those businesses before, they got into them only after their father became president, wouldn’t you want to investigate that?”
Swawell hesitated but finally agreed with her.
“I would want to go through former channels — formal channels,” he replied. “I don’t think it is okay for the president to ask another leader to involve ourselves in the policies.”
Tell it to Biden, Swalwell.
