Rep. Eric Swalwell retweeted a Tweet on Monday that compared President Donald Trump to genocidal dictators Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler.

“Leaders who have hidden in a bunker and gassed their own citizens include Saddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler, and Donald Trump,” Twitter user Ben Wexler wrote in the tweet shared by Swalwell.

The tweet comes as many media outlets report that the President instructed law enforcement to clear the White House perimeter from protestors outraged by the tragic death of George Floyd. Many reported that the Park Police used tear gas, however, they later clarified that no tear gas was used.

On countless occasions, Swalwell has called the President a “fascist” leader. He also doubled down Wednesday when the Republican Jewish Coalition condemned him for comparing a member of the first openly gay member of the President’s cabinet, Richard Grenell, “to infamous Nazi Joseph Goebbels.”

Instead of apologizing for the egregious comment, Swalwell responded, “In a few years, my children will be old enough to ask, ‘Dad, what did you do when Trump gassed peaceful protestors for a photo-op at a church?” The only thing I’ll be sorry for is if I’m not able to say, “everything I could to help save our country.”

Parents, advocates call on leaders to step down after ZERO children pass math at 13 Baltimore state schools



School desk

How long will leaders who let our children down blame Covid-19 for their failures? Anger swept across Baltimore, Maryland, after not a single student passed their state math exams, and almost 75 percent testing at the lowest possible score.

The Daily Mail reports “The poor performances came in the latest round of Maryland‘s state testing, where 13 high schools in the city – a staggering 40 percent – failed to produce a single student with a ‘proficient’ score in math.” Baltimore City Schools not only received $1.6 billion last year from taxpayers, but the school district also received $799 million in Covid relief funding from the federal government.

“So, it’s not a funding issue. We’re getting plenty of funding,” said Jason Rodriguez, deputy director of Baltimore-based nonprofit People Empowered by the Struggle, to Fox Baltimore. “I don’t think money is the issue. I think accountability is the issue…This is educational homicide, there is no excuse for the failure, which has come after years of warnings over the city’s poor education standards,” added Rodriguez.

A bombshell study published this month by the Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE) found that 16 million students were chronically absent during the pandemic. “The millions of students had missed more than 10 percent of schools days during the 2021-22 year, twice the number seen in previous years. More than eight in 10 public schools also reported stunted behavioral and social-emotional development in their students due to the pandemic, according to a May survey cited in the report.”

However, six years ago a similar report by Project Baltimore found that 13 schools in the city had zero students test ‘proficiently’ in math. An almost identical finding. “We’re still dealing with these same issues year after year,” Rodriguez continued. “It’s just scary to me and alarming to me because we know that what’s happening now, you know, it’s just opening up the floodgates to the school-to-prison pipeline. I’m beyond angry… This is why we’ve been calling for the resignation of the school CEO.”

Daily Mail notes that Rodriguez’s group has previously held rallies over the mounting educational crisis in the city, and in 2021 led calls for Baltimore City Schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises to resign over low test scores and falling graduation rates.
