Yes, we can be as childish as Howard Stern. It’s our favorite headline of the past 24 hours. We found it on BuzzFeed News.
Here’s the poop: “In an interview Monday night with MSNBC host Chris Matthews, California Rep. Eric Swalwell appeared to…well, rip an absolutely enormous fart,” Buzzfeed reports.
Here’s the moment, in a video you can watch in the following tweet:

The Buzzfeed story reports: “The Democrat, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, appeared to react to the fart with a brief pause, while attempting not to smile.”
The story adds: “In a text to BuzzFeed News on Monday night, Swalwell denied having anything to do with it. ‘It was not me!!!!!’ he wrote. ‘Ha. And I didn’t hear it when I was speaking.’”
MSNBC later told Buzzfeed that the sound was a “mug scraping across the desk.”
