Eric Swalwell had a relatable message for everyone after Trump wished a Happy Mother's Day to 'Mothers, Wives and Lovers of Radical Left Fascists.'
Trump continued his tradition of using holiday messages to harp about how much he dislikes the people who disagree with him politically with a Mother's Day post on Truth Social.
His post completely ignored the mothers in his family and barely mentions the holiday at all.
"Happy Mother's Day to ALL, in particular the Mothers, Wives and Lovers of the Radical Left Fascists, Marxists, and Communists who are doing everything within their power to destroy and obliterate our once great Country."
"Please make these complete Lunatics and maniacs Kinder, Gentler, Softer and, most importantly, Smarter, so that we can, quickly, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!"
California Democratic Representative Eric Swalwell shared the post on Twitter with a message of his own.
"Let me translate: you should probably vote."
The California Democrat included a nonpartisan website— vote.gov—where people can check their voter registration status.

Swalwell was far from the only one criticizing Trump's Mother's Day message.
Many compared Trump's message to those posted by other men who have held the office of President.
While Biden and Obama chose to wish their wives a happy Mother's Day, Trump left his wife Melania out of his post entirely—instead choosing to criticize the mothers of his political adversaries.
Obama even managed to wish a happy Mother's Day to both his own wife and all of the other moms and mother figures.
\u201cTo the love of my life, and the life of my love \u2014\n\nHappy Mother\u2019s Day, @flotus.\u201d— President Biden (@President Biden) 1684086345
\u201cHappy Mother\u2019s Day! I hope you take a moment to appreciate all the moms and mother-figures in your life \u2013 and be there for people who may be missing theirs.\n\nTo @MichelleObama, thanks for being such an amazing mom to our beautiful girls. You set an incredible example for all of\u2026\u201d— Barack Obama (@Barack Obama) 1684069311
\u201cThe "Happy Mother's Day" posts on social media by the last 3 US Presidents:\n\nBiden: "To the love of my life, and the life of my love \u2014 Happy Mother\u2019s Day"\n\nTrump: "Happy Mother\u2019s Day to ALL, in particular the Mothers, Wives and Lovers of the Radical Left Fascists, Marxists, and\u2026\u201d— Brian Krassenstein (@Brian Krassenstein) 1684110577
Others criticized Trump's post in general.
\u201c@NoLieWithBTC Only he could make a day for women about him.\u201d— No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen (@No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen) 1684102761
\u201c@NoLieWithBTC Interesting how TFG doesn\u2019t think that the radical left Fascists, Marxists, and Communists are not women.\u201d— No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen (@No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen) 1684102761
\u201cDo you think Melania cares that her beloved husband forgot to wish her a happy Mother's Day?\u201d— Republicans against Trump (@Republicans against Trump) 1684099581
\u201cTrump posts a very loving, respectful, and heartfelt Mother\u2019s Day message. He\u2019s just so presidential. Actually, he\u2019s an unhinged, raving psychopath that belongs in prison for his numerous crimes.\u201d— Mike Sington (@Mike Sington) 1684081847
Trump didn't even mention his own mother, Mary Anne Trump, or any of the other women he inevitably knows who are mothers like his wife Melania.
His diatribe against "Radical Left Fascists, Marxists, and Communists" was apparently more important than actually celebrating mothers on their own holiday.
If that isn't the kind of man you want leading the country again, follow Swalwell's advice—vote.
