Rep. Eric Swalwell, whose campaign centered around gun control, has announced he is ending his bid for the Democratic nomination for president.

The decision comes after a lackluster opening debate performance by the California congressman and his inability to break out of the lower tier of Democratic candidates.

Swalwell rose to fame after ousting 20-year incumbent Democrat Pete Stark from the House.

More recently, he has made continual rounds on television, attacking President Donald Trump, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Perhaps the thing most people think of upon hearing his name is Swalwell’s stunning response to a Twitter user who warned that attempts at gun control would be met with “a war” from pro-Second Amendment Americans.

Swalwell infamously responded, “And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit.”

The congressman later insisted that his comment was sarcastic, and it was actually followed by an appeal to find common ground and communicate.

But the idea of a congressman threatening to use nuclear force against citizens defending a constitutional right struck a chord — a decidedly sour chord, if Twitchy’s coverage counts for anything at all.

Swallwell’s exit comes as billionaire and vociferous Trump critic Tom Steyer is reportedly telling staffers he will announce for 2020.

    Next! I think the next one(s) to drop out will be idiot “Beto” and Stinkinpooper. Actually to avoide embarrassment, they ALL should drop out now. None of the assholes have a chance of beating Trump.

      You are right about Beto, the only way this buffoon could be dumber, he would have to be bigger.To be honest, the entire line up of Demos are losers and have absolutely no contact with any Americans. They are going down like the Titanic along with the big media outlets. The real winner that came out of the two Demo debates was the guy that sold all of those podiums !!

    the blithering idiot that threatened citizens with nuclear attack…simply for claiming their constitutional rights. This piece of shit should be tried for treason.

    A democrat showing his true colors. Attacking lawful American citizens and dissavowing Amendment protected rights. The 2nd Amendment was written just for the likes of this pissant leftwing anti-American Shite.

    I seriously think he has a little something wrong mentally. Watch him when he talks. They used to call it, “slow.”
