The Five Reacts To Dem Rep. Eric Swalwell's Gun Control Tweets: 'I Think He Just Nuked His Chances'



The panel on “The Five” discussed Monday how Rep. Eric Swalwell, a potential 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, brought up nuclear weapons when a Twitter user challenged him on gun control. Swalwell, a Democrat from Alameda, Calif., initially floated the idea of a mandatory buyback program for assault-style firearms. “So basically, Rep. Swalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get,” Twitter user Joe Biggs wrote. — Rep. Eric Swalwell @RepSwalwell: “And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.”

Swalwell responded by saying it would be a “short war” because “the government has nukes [and] too many of them. But they’re legit.” Greg Gutfeld said that there’s “no sarcastic font on Twitter” – citing Swalwell’s response to the episode that he was being facetious. “I think he just nuked his chances,” Jesse Watters added, in an apparent reference to Swalwell’s purported presidential ambitions. Watters said the episode “didn’t pass the ‘commander-in-chief’ test. You can’t use a nuke in a Civil War because everybody dies. Democrats just have a hard time talking about guns, it’s like different language [to them].”
