Former Congressman turned Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” to discuss the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
During the conversation, host Jake Tapper asked O’Rourke a simple question: “Do you think President Trump is a white nationalist?”
“Yes, I do.”
There’s a nice, fat softball for you, Beto. Hey, Jake the Fake, how about an obvious follow-up question, like “Got any proof?” And while you’re at it, ask him to define white nationalism. Or you define it.
“And, let’s be very clear about what is causing this, and who the president is. He is an open, avowed racist and encouraging more racism in this country and it’s incredibly dangerous for the United States of America right now,” he said. “All of us have a responsibility to stand up and be counted on this issue.”
Definition of avowed – that has been asserted, admitted, or stated publicly.
You claimed that President is “an avowed racist.” When did he openly admit he was a racist?
SPOILER: He didn’t.
Were you lying or are you just not proficient in English? If you are going to accuse the President of being a racist, don’t you think you owe it to the voters to back that up with some proof? And by “proof” I don’t mean “everybody knows” or “it’s obvious.”
Last questions: Now that we’ve learned that the shooter is a Leftist Democrat, will you apologize to President Trump? Don’t you think that running for Potus after losing a Senate race just reeks of white privilege?
I’ve seen bread mold that was smarter than Beeto.
