During an interview with Vice News, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) explained that as a “white guy”, he knows when to promote other people’s voices when asked why he should be the Democratic Party’s nominee for president.

Swalwell claimed that he understood that he had “gaps in his knowledge of racial issues in America” and would seek advice from people of color on such issues if elected.

“A white guy who doesn’t see other identities or understand other experiences should not be President,” Swalwell suggested.

He continued, “I do. And where there would be gaps in my knowledge or my experience, I will pass the mic to people who do have that experience.”

Swalwell tweeted his comments on Twitter and wrote, “I may be ‘another white guy,’ but I know where there are gaps in my knowledge or my experience and I know when to pass the mic.”

Twitterverse reacted and Swalwell instantly got roasted. (Video Below)
