How much you wanna bet that more people are talking about Eric Swalwell blasting out a loud one on MSNBC than are talking about Adam Schiff’s impeachment inquiry? Shart Twitter is the best Twitter. And, man, was last night entertaining.
Harmeet Dhillon referred to the clip of Eric’s on-air gas-passing as his “Fartacus Moment.” But since that fart of his probably required a change of underwear, I think Shartacus is probably more accurate.
Okay, for those who don’t know: A “shart” is a fart that ends up being a shit.
Come on, you know what I’m talking about. It happens to everyone at some point. You’re expecting to pass a little gas and your colon has other plans so what you end up with is a shart.
And there is no way Eric’s star turn on MSNBC was just a little gas. No way.
Of course Shartacus is denying he cut the cheese.
But of course he is. As the old saying goes, “He who denies it supplies it.”
MSNBC’s Hardball tweeted out that the sound you heard was just a Hardball mug scraping across Chris Matthews’ tabletop.
As my brother said, if that’s true, then the table must be made of rubber.
All during his presidential campaign (that ironically sputtered out like a wet fart), Eric Swalwell couldn’t generate the level of attention he’s received since last night’s on-air shart.
How pathetic is that?
Just twelve days ago, I wrote a post titled “Hot Take Swalwell spills the beans.” And now that title has a level of comedy I hadn’t anticipated.
Comfortably Smug went back and found some old tweets Shartacus sent out during his campaign that read quite differently today.
Like this one:
And this one:
And, as usually happens at times like these, in honor of Shartacus someone edited the Wikipedia page on the Procedures of the United States House of Representatives to include this:
Bummer, though. That entry has already been removed. Too bad. It made for a nice addition.
Swalwell is getting more attention for his Shartacus moment than the hapless Cory Booker got for his Spartacus moment.
Beto is probably kicking himself for not live-streaming a shart of his own.
“If I had known sharting on live TV would bring so much attention, I never would’ve settled for filming the barber clipping my ear hair!”
From here on out, every single time Eric Swalwell appears on MSNBC or CNN, everyone watching will be so focused on hearing the next blast, they won’t hear a damn word he says.
And you know what?
That’s how it should be.
