Beto O’Rouke saw his career go down in flames because of these five words
Beto O’Rourke made it clear he is running for President.
That ended up being a massive mistake.
That’s because his career just went down in flames because of these five words.
After Beto O’Rourke staged a pathetic counter-protest to Donald Trump’s massive rally in El Paso, Texas, Congressman Dan Crenshaw asked O’Rourke one question.
Would he tear down the border wall that protects El Paso?
O’Rourke had his jaw dropping answer to that question with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes – an unequivocal yes.
The Hill reports:
Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said Thursday he would “absolutely” take down the border wall in El Paso, Texas, arguing that the structure has not made the city demonstrably safer.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes posed a question from Rep. Dan Crenshaw about whether O’Rourke would get rid of the wall if he could “snap your fingers” and make it happen.
“Yes. Absolutely. I’d take the wall down,” O’Rourke said on “All In” during an interview near the border on Thursday.
O’Rourke, who represented El Paso in Congress for three terms, added that he believes city residents would pass a referendum to remove the wall if it were put up for a vote.
Later in the interview, O’Rourke also claimed border walls make it too difficult for illegal aliens to invade the country.
If O’Rourke is running for President, then a platform of unlimited illegal immigration and no border enforcement is political suicide.
That may play well on left-wing social media sites, but it is toxic to the voters Democrats need to win in order to oust Donald Trump.
The Democrat Party’s extremism is the best political gift Donald Trump could receive in 2020.
