Congressman’s High School Yearbook Photo Is Getting Roasted To A Crisp For His Peak 90s Hair

Not every politician’s yearbook photo comes back to haunt them for their fashion faux pas, especially when few shoe polish facials are involved.

But after a certain Virginia governor’s racist yearbook photo surfaced, Mercury News did some digging to find more dirt on other prominent government officials to see if they could uncover more racists currently in  positions of power.

While the search revealed some 200 photos from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s of students donning blackface and Klan hoods, none were linked to politicians.

However, most of the offenses from California’s contingent of politicians revealed their dorkiness, especially that of Congressman Eric Swalwell.

Here is a photo of the Democratic congressman’s Dublin High School yearbook photo from 1999.

The U.S. Representative from California’s 15th congressional district may have considered pursuing a career in the arts. More specifically, the boy band arts.

His gold-tipped spikes were prime for some serious roasting on Twitter, and he rolled with the frivolity.

Swalwell is an outspoken Donald Trump critic who considered casting his bid for the 2020 presidential election.

Although he acknowledged the tackiness of a style reflective of the dawning millennium, he hid his pearly whites in his yearbook photo to convey his sheer determination in facing the unknown dangers of Y2K.

But he did have his regrets along the way, like “bleach.”

A good time was had by all on Twitter at his expense.

Which look was he really going for?

Those spikes tho…

The congressman was lauded for exhibiting good sportsmanship — a trait currently lacking inside the Oval Office.

Others just saw an undeniably good looking dude.

Last month during a trip to New York, the congressman needed a cup of coffee. However, the nearest Starbucks was located inside Trump Tower, so he walked an extra block out of his way in the snow for an untainted brew, elsewhere.

This man knows his priorities.

Swalwell made strides in his political career by reintroducing the Journalist Protection Act and a bill to protect victims of domestic abuse. He also showed his support for the LGBTQ community by demanding equality and calling for an end to discrimination.

He will decide whether to toss his hat in the ring for the 2020 election by the end of the month.
