Beto O’Rourke’s political stunt during Uvalde press conference could cost him shot at governorship

Standing on the corpses of dead children to gain political points is the Democrat way. However, one gubernatorial candidate has surpassed even the worst partisans.

Beto O’Rourke is scoring points on the left while angering the right after interrupting a press conference following the school shooting in Uvalde, Fox News reported. O’Rourke hopes to be the next governor of Texas, but those hopes went up in flames after his disgusting stunt.

O’Rourke, who failed at both a Senatorial and a presidential run, showed up at Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s news conference a day after the tragedy to grandstand. He said officials “are doing nothing” to stop these attacks even as the body count was still piling up.

He immediately drew the ire of Republicans, who saw this dirty political trick for what it was. However, Democrats applauded O’Rourke’s stunt despite the terrible optics and timing.

“What Beto did was incredibly brave,” Democratic Strategist Jennifer Holdsworth Karp said to Fox News Digital. “He respectfully waited for Governor Abbot to conclude his remarks, and then stood up to the Republicans on that stage without raising his voice,” she claimed.

“More Democrats should follow his example and push back against the gaslighting and lies that come from the right after innocent children are slaughtered with weapons of war,” Holdsworth Karp parroted the talking point. “I’m not sure Beto cares if it will help him or hurt him politically because it was the right thing to do, but I will tell any candidate who will listen that they should follow his lead.”

O’Rourke has ratcheted up his anti-gun stance in the wake of the school shooting despite Texas’s infamous pro-gun constituency. His campaign has gone from advocating “reducing” the number of weapons like the AR-15 and AK-47 in circulation to now saying there’s no way “any civilian should own” that type of weapon.

Though he has a history of losing elections for higher office, O’Rourke is still wedded to the idea that law-abiding citizens should not own guns. Democrats want to disarm the people, but that won’t fly in Texas.

He would make a really lousy governor anyway. Vote for Abbot
