On Monday, failed presidential candidate Eric “Nuke ‘Em” Swalwell called Donald Trump a “fascist” for walking to St. John’s Episcopal Church after authorities cleared out rioters in the area around Lafayette Park.
“I don’t know anyone in ‘Antifa.’ But I’m against facism. And @realDonaldTrump is a fascist,” Swalwell wrote on Twitter, misspelling fascism.
I don’t know anyone in “Antifa.” But I’m against facism. And @realDonaldTrump is a fascist.

Quite a few people took Swalwell to task for his outrageous tweet.
You actually know a lot of people in antifa. I’m certain of it. Try again.

Is this really your response during mass riots? To gun for Trump?
This is why everyone hates you people.

Breitbart reported that quite a few leftists, including paid liberal propagandists and members of Congress, joined Swalwell, and falsely claimed that tear gas was used against the rioters.
I think it might have more to do with the fact that peaceful protesters just had rubber bullets and teargas shot at them so the President could have that photo op, but you do you. https://t.co/0X0MjfkSj9

Even the DC Episcopal Bishop jumped in on the bandwagon, upset that Trump used a Bible and stood in front of the church without her permission:
DC Episcopal Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde: "Let me be clear: The President just used a Bible, the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and one of the churches of my diocese, without permission, as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus."

But the Park Police said it never used tear gas — it used smoke grenades. But lying leftists and their paid propagandists continue to spread the lie…
A source says tear gas was never used — instead smoke cannisters were deployed, which don't have an uncomfortable irritant in them. And, the source says Park Police didn't know President Trump would be walking across the park several minutes later. Park Police say…
