Did Swallwell or Matthews cut the cheese in this interview?

 

I believe it was Swallwell.

If he did it’s the smartest noise he’s ever made on television. He’s a literal retard.

As much as I find this entertaining, I don't understand the grief he gets for this.  He is probably nervous, has come out of hours of listening to testimony, has to speak in front of millions of people and he tooted one out.

The man needs to learn how to clench his sphincter when it really matters.

That wasn't a small one either.

Matthews may have had to wave the air in front of him or crack a window.

I was just going to mention that: he raises up slightly while expelling the flatulence.

It's a dead giveaway.

The only hope he has now of restarting his political career is to apologize to the American people sincerely but with a bit of humor.

Sure. It could have happened to any of us. But it didn't...it happened to him. And he's a funny looking guy too. A bit too clean cut and cocky to be farting that loud on the air like that.

 

But it's not fair. You're right. But life isn't always fair.

He'll write a book called 'The Art of the Fart', and be a candidate again in 2024.

It was his way of saying he supports the production of natural gas.
