Fox News host Tucker Carlson and conservative commentator Mark Steyn slammed House Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) on Wednesday for riding shirtless on a camel in Qatar for yet another one of the politician's endless foreign adventures.
"If you watch this show, we may have given you the impression that Eric Swalwell spends all of his time having sex with sultry Chinese spies. And for that, we apologize. He does have some extra time and he uses that time to travel all over the world on trips paid for by foreign governments," Tucker Carlson said in a Monday segment titled Swalwell gets over spy lover with topless ride on camel.
"Here you have Eric Swalwell sitting on his camel, literally shirtless, arms raised in triumph as his faithful servants of color smile in the background," Tucker said. "One of his bearers as coolies was like he was on safari in Southern Rhodesia in 1905, hamming it up."
Mark Steyn, a historian and best-selling author, joined in on Tucker's banter and slammed representative Swalwell for riding topless on a camel with no mask as California looks to reinstate their mask mandate due to the alleged "rise" in the COVID-19 delta variant.
"Now that picture there is the death of the republic," Steyn said.
"Don't wave your constitution at me. Don't tell me about your founding fathers because no founding father at the height of a pandemic, in which you can't go to church, you can't get a hair cut, you can't go to a restaurant, but our rulers can go topless with their native bearers. Even when they're entirely reasonable buffoons who've been penetrated by Chinese intelligence," Steyn added.
