That’s definitely not it, Swalwell slapped back on Twitter.
He just doesn’t like her.
Boebert packed in as many insults as she could against Swalwell in an interview with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on his TBN talk show.
Boebert called Swalwell — a la kindergarten — “Eric Smells Not So Well.”
“I’ve actually tried to have conversations with Eric Smells Not So Well,” she explained. “It doesn’t really work out. He bee-lines away from me. And so maybe I’m intimidating.”

Swalwell responded to the Boebert clip with a quickie scene from the 2009 movie “He’s Just Not That Into You” when bar owner Alex (Justin Long) tells Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin): “Don’t call him. He doesn’t like you.”
That hit the spot on Twitter.
Intimidating isn’t the word that comes to mind.
