“My colleagues, none of this today that you are bringing makes sense—your inconsistencies, your hypocrisy, your sycophancy. Unless you are in a cult,” Rep. Eric SwalWell (D-CA) said, addressing his MAGA colleagues at a June 4, 2024, congressional hearing. “And guys, I’m starting to think you’re in a cult. That is your right. But it’s not your responsibility. I promise you, that’s not what your constituents would want.”

Swallwell was responding to the MAGA party’s reaction to the conviction five days earlier of their leader, Donald Trumps, on 34 felony counts of fraud in New York.

He continued: “So if you believe in states’ rights, except when a jury in that state convicts your nominee for president, you might be in a cult.

“If you claim you back the blue but want to defund the police, when the police go to your nominee’s house to retrieve national security secrets, you might be in a cult.

“If you’re supporting a guy whose felony convictions prevent him from getting a security clearance, you might be in a cult.

“And if the guy you’re supporting for president has felony convictions that prevent him from going to Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Ethiopia. Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Macau, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, New Zealand, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, and the UK, you might be in a cult.”
