The clown car rolls on

Ummm.....which Democrat elected official isn't running for President of the United States in 2020?

A certain Congressman from California apparently is one of the next to declare.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) will reportedly announce next week that he is running for president in 2020 and will center his campaign around gun control.

The Atlantic reported Thursday that Swalwell will announce his plans during an appearance on CBS's "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert," where he will be joined by Cameron Kasky, a survivor of the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Swalwell, who is hosting a town hall on gun control next week in Florida, did not confirm his plans to The Atlantic, but said he thinks gun control should be a top issue in 2020.

“We are doing a town hall in Parkland,”(That's original. Maybe he'll get a Cronkite award outta the deal - ed.) he told The Atlantic. “And I do believe that gun safety has to be a top 2020 issue.”

You wanna know how serious Swalwell is about enacting "gun safety?" By ensuring no U.S. citizens own a gun, even if it means mutually assured destruction.

Let's be honest. Swalwell has no chance to be the Dem nominee in 2020. However, his brief candidacy will be ripe for memes, satire, etc.
