Democrats and their fellow travelers have shamelessly moved with lightning-fast speed to exploit the horrific slaughter of 19 young children in their Texas elementary school classroom to push their anti-Second Amendment agenda, and when it comes to uncouth ghoulishness, it’s going to be hard to top Beto O’Rourke for the stunt that he pulled on Wednesday afternoon.
The quirky former congressman and failed presidential candidate who is now running to be the governor of the Lone Star State interrupted current Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s press conference on the tragedy, turning what was a somber setting into a disgusting political circus that ended with his ejection from the scene.
Governor Abbott had spoken on the tragedy and was about to hand the microphone over to Lt. Governor Dan Patrick when Robert Francis O’Rourke, clad in his trademark blue jeans and workingman’s shirt tried to hijack the press conference, hectoring Abbott in a belligerent and disrespectful manner that, while inspiring to his progressive base, is likely a turnoff to normal people who were appalled at such a brazen example of disrespect for the victims and their grieving loved ones.
“You are doing nothing,” Beto said to Abbott among his other raving, drawing a response from GOP Senator Ted Cruz to “sit down” and Lt. Gov. Patrick who said, “You’re out of line and an embarrassment.”
“No. He needs to get his ass out of here. This isn’t his place to talk to, so…,” said Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin.
O’Rourke continued, basking in the media spotlight in likely anticipation of primetime face time on CNN and MSNBC, “You’re doing nothing. You’re doing nothing. This is totally predictable when you… “
Mayor McLaughlin shot back, “Sir, you’re out of line! Sir, you’re out of line! Sir, you are out of line! Please leave this auditorium. I can’t believe you’re a sick son of a b-tch that would come to a deal like this to make a political issue,” he shouted as the candidate was escorted out.
Gov. Abbott reacted to the disgusting sideshow with strong words, “There are family members who are crying as we speak.” he said. “There are family members whose hearts are broken, there’s no words than anybody shouting can come up here and do anything to heal those broken hearts.”
“Every Texan, every American has a responsibility where we need to focus not on ourselves and our agendas, we need to focus on the healing and hope that we can provide to those who have suffered unconscionable damage to their lives and loss of life,” Abbott continued.
“We need all Texans, in this one moment in time, put aside the personal agendas, think of somebody other than ourselves, think about the people who are hurt and help those who have been hurt,” he added emphatically.
Beto’s behavior here is an embarrassment, but @GregAbbott_TX’s response here is powerful. Watch it: pic.twitter.com/SLRs3MoUtc

The leftist personality cult that infests Twitter – the vast majority of whom do not live in Texas – hailed Beto as their hero but users in the reality-based world reacted to the latest episode of Democrat political theatre.
This will definitely help Beto O'Rourke in his race to become governor of Twitter.

Who else is completely not shocked Robert Francis O'Rourke would crash a press conference in the aftermath of horrific murders as a publicity stunt for himself. Absolutely despicable.

Despicable. Beto grandstands during this presser for his political ambition. JUST WOW.

The mayor is right. It’s not all about Beto. He is a narcissist to try to make this about himself and his political ambitions

That was a sick political stunt by Beto in a time of mourning.

ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, The New York Times, USA Today, and The Washington Post will swoon for days over Beto as brave and a role model for our children.

When people get TOO deep into politics, they tend to lose their humanity.
Everything becomes about scoring points for 'their team'. Empathy, decency, and compassion be damned.

You can oppose Abbott all you want, but there are literally parents of dead children in that auditorium.
And Beto wants to make it out to be a political spectacle?
I have no words. I mean, I’ve seen things as dumb before, but not at an event like this.

Sick bastard @BetoORourke just used murdered children as a political prop in front of their parents. Anything bad that happens to him is too good. https://t.co/ozyaTCJodc

Beto is doing this for ActBlue money. Let’s not pretend it’s about anything else. This is who he is. https://t.co/p3SAsH2sX0

Desperation has brought out a new level of depravity for Democrats who will do anything to appeal to their rabid, emotionally unstable base to stave off the mother of all electoral beatdowns come November.
