Beto Responds To Trump’s Thursday Attack After 2020 Bid


Beto O’Rourke is a grown-up. This is actually one of the reasons people like him so much. He doesn’t do things for show, or to appeal to a certain demographic, he is simply himself, take it or leave it. When it comes to the president and his merry band of dimwitted followers, Beto has his hands full, yet he always persists.

Thursday, upon hearing that Beto threw his hat in the ring for the presidency, Trump did his best impression of a school yard bully who cries in the mirror every night because nobody loves him. Trump said this earlier, after the release of Beto’s Twitter announcement:

“I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’”

That’s literally the best thing he can come up with to try to slander Beto. Nice try, pal. Beto eventually got around to responding to the president’s jab, but only after he was asked by reporters to comment on it. This is what Beto said in return:

“I have nothing to say to that. I think people want us to rise above the pettiness, the smallness — they want us to be big, bold, ambitious for this country. That’s what I’m focused on and that’s what I see here today in Burlington.”

This is what a real man looks like when faced with a petty bully. Thank you, Mr. O’Rourke, for being a true candidate for the presidency of the United States of America.

People responding to Beto’s announcement were thrilled to hear the news. Check the feedback O’Rourke got from his Twitter post below:
