[Ed. – He’s a walking Monty Python skit.]
[A]pparently Swalwell decided the way to deflect from prior embarrassments is to do more embarrassing things.
Such as riding shirtless on a camel in Qatar during the middle of the pandemic.
While Eric Swalwell was scolding people for not following COVID rules he was taking special-interest funded trips to Qatar where he was maskless (and shirtless) riding camels. https://t.co/OulueU83Dh https://t.co/pzQrzcL8Sx pic.twitter.com/4iMTXqihaj

According to Business Insider, the pictures were taken earlier this year and show Swalwell and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) as well as their wives riding camels along the Persian Gulf while on a trip paid for by the US-Qatar Business Council. It cost $84,621.59, according to the NY Post.
Now, this is embarrassing all on its own because yuck, shirtless on a camel? Is he daft? But beyond that, it’s another Democrat doing his “rules for thee but not for me” bit. …
So now we can ask how much he’s compromised when he gets paid-for jaunts like this?
