Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a member of the House’s Standing Intelligence Committee, fell in love and promoted the tiki torch prank during the Virginia Governor’s Friday race.
“Birds of feathers,” Swalwell tweeted in response to a now-deleted post that described a photo of five Democrats with a tiki torch as “disgusting.”
He fell for a Russian prank, he was seduced by a Chinese pot… Who wants to tell him? pic.twitter.com/JCCR1VqK0Y

Many users on social media have called Swalwell to promote tiki torch acrobatics.
How did the Chinese ever pull your pot? This is a secret.

Either The Lincoln Project accepted the Democratic Party or The Lincoln Project was responsible for the prank, fueled by the McAuliffe campaign, members of the corporate media, and Eric Swalwell, a Democratic congressman sitting on the intelligence committee.

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson was not surprised that Swalwell fell for the scam, identification Swalwell’s past romantic relationship with Chinese spy Christine Fang.

Friday’s failed tiki torch prank tried to link Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin’s campaign to white supremacy.
Glenn Youngkin is so racist that the Lincoln project had to make a prank to look racist.

Issuing accusations of a racist campaign and criticizing Youngkin for “racist dog whistling” became a key component of McAuliff’s strategy last weekend before election day.
After Youngkin launched a campaign involving a Virginia parent who opposed the critical theory of race taught in schools, McAuliffe argued that Youngkin’s message was a “racist dog whistle”.
“In the last week of this race, Glenn Youngkin has doubled in the same cultural wars that have fueled his campaign from the start,” McAuliffe said in a statement Monday. “Youngkin’s final message about banning books and silencing esteemed black authors is a racist dog whistle aimed at gaining the support of his party’s most extreme elements – most notably his main supporter and replacement, Donald Trump.”
McAullife’s support in polls continues to decline as Youngkin gains his first lead of the election season. According to a Fox News poll released On Thursday, Youngkin leads McAuliffe by eight points, up 53 percent from McAuliffe’s 45 percent support among likely voters.
