Congressman Seemingly Drops Loud Fart During Live TV Interview

funny /

We've all been there. While trying to let gas come out soft and quietly, sometimes the trumpet sound of a fart finds its way out instead.

California Rep. Eric Swalwell appeared on the MSNBC show 'Hardball' with Chris Matthews to speak on the Trump impeachment.

But, what if I told you that was the least interesting part of the interview. During Swalwell's screen time, a seemingly loud...well...fart was unmistakably heard and subsequently, the internet lost its sh*t over it.

I mean judge for yourself...

Following the incident, Rep. Swalwell, like a good politician denied, denied, denied. However, no one believes him as he is clearly seen in the video starting to smile and adjusting his sitting posture at the moment of gas release.

Dubbed #fartgate, people took to Twitter and in modern fashion found creative and hilarious ways to tackle this breaking of wind, even starting a Twitter handle for Swalwell's gas break.

Some even tried to get Trump to comment on #fartgate.
