'Congresswoman' Eric Swalwell: Acting DNI Maguire Unintentionally Misgenders Failed Presidential Candidate


Could this be the best, possibly Freudian, slip of 2019? If you follow failed Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), it just might be.

During testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Joseph Maguire made an unintentional mistake of calling Swalwell "congresswoman" when beginning to answer the congressman's question.

Take a look:


In typical Swalwell fashion, when he gets a single syllable from anyone he asks a question to that he doesn't like the sound of, he interrupts and becomes combative. I don't think being addressed as "congresswoman," no matter how unintentional and/or funny it was, helped his mood in questioning Maguire.

In any event, thought this might bring a little levity to an otherwise monotonous day.
