Beto Responds To Trump Telling Him To ‘Be Quiet’ & It Ain’t Pretty

After the mass murders in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, Donald Trump hid out at Mar-a-Lago. People saw him out on his golf course, rather than calling the country together. Days afterward, someone decided his reading in a monotone from the prompter did not work, so POTUS is off to thrown some golf balls or something equally inappropriate at the grieving people. Here is what one of his opponents had to say about that.

The killer of 22 people in El Paso left behind an online rant using the president’s racist campaign slogan. Another nine were gunned down in 32 seconds just hours later in the Dayton, Ohio massacre. Former representative and 2020 Democratic campaign candidate Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) and the residents of these two mourning cities told 45 to stay away. No surprise, Trump ignored them.

The president will get to find out just what an angry Beto O’Rourke has to say. The Democrat tweeted:

’22 people in my hometown are dead after an act of terror inspired by your racism. El Paso will not be quiet and neither will I.’

The president resorted to grade-school name-calling:

‘Beto (phony name to indicate Hispanic heritage) O’Rourke, who is embarrassed by my last visit to the Great State of Texas, where I trounced him, and is now even more embarrassed by polling at 1% in the Democrat Primary, should respect the victims & law enforcement – & be quiet!’

‘When President Trump comes to El Paso tomorrow, I will be joining our strong, beautiful, binational community at #ElPasoStrong. I hope to see you there.’

He also retweeted author of Homeland Alfredo Corchado:

‘”For the president, I think he should just be careful of what he says, his words, because this is what happens. You preach and you say things, and this is what happens. This is what happened to my hometown. To my people. No human has to go through this.” — Adria

Representative Veronica Escobar (D-TX) also told Trump to stay away:

‘Tomorrow, I will again be spending time with fellow El Pasoans who are dealing with the pain and horror left in the wake of this act of domestic terrorism fueled by hate and racism.’
