Gallego’s Gassy Swalwell Tweet Raises Troll Alarm

He was known as the “Troll” when he served in the Arizona Legislature, and now Rep. Ruben Gallego is earning troll status on social media. On Tuesday, Gallego tweeted to Rep. Eric Swalwell a photo of a box of Gas-X with the message, “I know you are busy so I got this for you.

Gallego was clearly referring to what has become known as #fartgate.

Swalwell did not respond to Gallego’s tweet.

Swalwell denies that he passed gas in an interview Monday night with MSNBC host Chris Matthews.
