Swalwell Shares Heated Text Exchange With Carlson

The Insider reports:

Rep. Eric Swalwell took aim at Tucker Carlson on Twitter Friday, sharing a screenshot of a testy text exchange the two shared. Swalwell, a Democrat from California, said he is refusing to return Carlson’s calls due to things the Fox News host has said about him and his family in the past.

One showing a missed call allegedly from Carlson and the text exchange. After Carlson texted Swalwell asking him to call him, Swalwell declined the request.

“Tucker, I’m hesitant to do that. You falsely smeared my wife on Tuesday and she’s getting death threats,” the congressman wrote. “Hit me all you like. But to go after her. That’s just wrong.” Carlson’s response to that was brief: “Coward.”
