The tweet, which has over 7 thousand replies and counting, is full of people mocking Swalwell and accusing him of making up the event.

The former presidential candidate has made news in the past over his tweets, including one instance where he made a veiled threat to nuke people that don’t comply with a gun ban. (RELATED: Swalwell Warns Gun Owners: Government Could Nuke Them If They Don’t Comply With Potential Gun Ban)
