The career of Beto O’Rourke in Washington, D.C., is somewhat perplexing as the Democrats continue to be outspoken for his party while having no political power. A former congressman, O’Rourke believed his future awaited him in the White House. In March of 2019, the Democrat decided to announce his run for President in the 2020 election. But as most know, the Democrats supported lifetime member Joe Biden, who supposedly beat former President Donald Trump. Before he ran for the White House, O’Rourke failed to gain votes in 2018 to become a U.S. Senator. Now, hoping to finally get a win, he is seeking to hold office in Texas. But his recent outburst isn’t doing him any favors.
Attending a campaign event in Mineral Wells, Texas, Beto O’Rourke discussed several issues facing the American people. What stood out the most, though, was when the Democrat addressed the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 children and two adults dead. Spinning it for political gain, the Democrat said, “It’s hard to believe that in a little under three months, we’re going to decide the outcome of the most important election in the history of the state of Texas.”
Beto O’Rourke added, “Perhaps the most important election taking place anywhere in America today. Thanks to you and everyone that’s here, we are going to win. I know we’re going to win because we’re fighting for every woman in Texas to make her own decision when it comes to her health care. Because we can get behind every public school educator and make sure we’ve got their backs as they go into this school year and every school year hereafter.”
The Democrat was sure to make a comparison between the AR-15 used during the school shooting and the weapons used in Vietnam. His statement caused one person to chuckle, leading Beto O’Rourke to admit, “It may be funny to you, motherf**ker, but it’s not funny to me!”
Not all that surprising, this isn’t the first time Beto O’Rourke used the Uvalde shooting to push his political agenda. Being the opponent of Republican Governor Greg Abbott, the Democrat crashed a conference held for the school shooting. He stated, “You are doing nothing. You said this was not predictable, this was totally predictable, and you choose not to do anything.”
Escorted out by the police, not only did Gov. Abbott declare, “You’re a sick son of a b*tch, you would come to a deal like this to make it a political issue,” but some people voiced their disdain for Beto O’Rourke online.
One person wrote, “Beto O’Rourke just proved that he is one of the biggest pieces of shit in the nation. He just stepped on the bodies of 19 dead babies to interrupt Gov. Abbott’s press conference to make a political statement. Fuck you, Beto. He made this about his campaign from the first second.”
