Rep. Eric Swalwell had a Jeb Bush moment during an event in Iowa Sunday night…

His comments were met with awkward silence because he had no real message except to compare Democrats to the Avengers and Republicans to The Hunger Games…

“Thank you, Iowa. Congratulations to tonight’s honorees. Welcome to my fellow candidates…Whom I consider…we are all a part of being The Avengers. The Republicans in 2016, that was ‘The Hunger Games.’”

“We are in this with your help and support to save this country we love so much.” 

“I’ll tell you what you did; you cut our time in Hell in half…You gave us a shot to save the country. But I think it is time that we don’t just play defense, but we actually go on offense.”

You’d think Swalwell would get a little more love since he’s from Iowa, but the crowd was silent. There was a looong pause when he made his first comment.

He doesn’t come off as authentic and speaks in cliches. He also uses rhetoric the voters have heard before from politicians.

Swalwell is polling at 0%, and now you know why.
