The perils of live TV were once again on show on Monday when a US politician apparently dropped a tremendous fart while conducting a live interview.
US Congressman Eric Swalwell – who apparently put his hand up as a contender for the Democrats for the 2020 Presidential race before dropping out – was being interviewed on MSNBC’s Hardball show about the possible impeachment of Donald Trump.
Mid-sentence the congressman from California can be heard letting out an almighty wall-shaking guff.
Proving the consummate pro he is, Swalwell didn’t appear to bat an eyelid at the on-air belter. Meanwhile, Hardball interviewer Chris Matthews does markedly well to keep a straight face and soldier on.
Check out the action below. While B&T advises it’s best watched with the volume up.
