Ted Cruz Absolutely Destroys New Commissionless Democrat Eric Swalwell Over ‘Bet’


Eric Swalwell, the Democrat best known for his connections to a Chinese spy, continued his illustrious career as Congress’ biggest dork on Tuesday by challenging Ted Cruz to a bet on the upcoming 49ers-Cowboys playoff game and immediately received a digital ‘Swirly’ from the Texas Senator.

It is not uncommon for politicians to make friendly bets to support local sports teams in the communities they represent. What is unusual, however, is to pretend that Swalwell is an ardent sports nut. After all, this is a man who broke both his thumbs playing football.

That said, Swalwell is super confident that the San Francisco 49ers will beat the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday’s NFC divisional playoff game. The 49ers are favored by 4 points, or in Swalwell’s world – two baskets.

Swalwell took to his Twitter account to challenge Cruz.

“If the @dallascowboys beat the @49ers I won’t be tweeting for the rest of January,” Swalwell wrote. “If the @49ers win, you can’t tweet for the rest of January. How Texan are you, Ted? Agreement?”

Ted Cruz fires back after Swalwell makes a bet

Nothing says “nerd alert” like Swalwell challenging Ted Cruz to a football bet by not posting tweets for about a week.

So impressive. So brave. He really threw down the gauntlet there.

Cruz fired back with his own terms of the bet.

“Shall we bet on a Chinese dinner instead?” he joked.

Cruz’s “Chinese dinner” slash is an obvious reference to the controversy surrounding Eric Swalwell when it was discovered that the congressman had ties to a woman named Christine Fang (aka Fang Fang).

A great report in 2020 indicated that Fang “participated in fundraisers for Rep. Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign” and interacted with the congressman “at multiple events over several years.”

Fang had reportedly served as a Chinese intelligence officer in China’s Ministry of State Security.

There has been speculation that the relationship was sexual, something Swalwell has not specifically denied.

Swalwell relentlessly mocked

Swalwell’s bet with Ted Cruz really brought out the best of social media, with countless followers firing shot after shot at the California Democrat.

An account known as The Right to Bear Memes practically committed murder by posting an image of Swalwell promoting a fictional “OnlyFangs” account.

Other followers called Cruz’s response alternately “ferocious” and “brutal.”

Another person pointed out that Swalwell “has nothing to do in Congress right now” and seems bored.

Hmmm… Why would that be? What could have prompted Eric Swalwell to pester Ted Cruz about football because he has too much time on his hands?

Oh that’s right. He was kicked out of the House Intelligence Committee by Chairman Kevin McCarthy for having questionable ties to a Chinese spy.

“Swalwell can’t get security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance,” McCarthy declared.

Eric responded by accusing McCarthy of taking such action out of “pure revenge.”

By the way, that’s what Swalwell calls herself in the mirror every morning to try to pump herself up for the day’s activities.

This is the same guy who once compared himself and fellow Democrats to the Avengers.

We’re glad Swalwell has some extra time to make football bets with Ted Cruz. It means he can do less damage in his role on the Intel committee.
