Rep. Eric Swalwell was mocked on social media for fawning over Danny Glover as the actor testified Wednesday at a House hearing on H.R. 40, a bill that would establish a commission to study reparations.

“I’ve listened to some of my colleagues, Mr. Glover, tell you how much they love your movies,” said the Iowa Democrat, who is running for president. “And I have to say, we didn’t come here to talk about your movies. We came here to talk about your activism.”

“I like your activism. But I also like your movies,” he added.
