Watch: Tucker Carlson Slams The Door On Beto's Farewell
Beto O’Rourke was a presidential candidate that the press LOVED and that alone should have been a red flag to the American people. This guy stepped in and decided there was no reason to campaign. All he thought he needed was a social media account and a running Livestream of his day to day activities.
Despite Beto's super liberal views, the new-Dems hated him. Why? Because he was white and privileged in their opinion. That's what caused the press' favorite politician to step down. Like so many hopeless Dems running for 2020 he just didn't stand a chance.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson gave Beto a scorching send off:
“Ultimately, Beto was too 1990’s for the Democratic Party,” Tucker opined. “He was way too privileged and from the beginning, he was stuck in the role that the new Democratic Party had ordained for people like him. He was stuck apologizing for who he was.”
Then, the Fox News host played a clip of O’Rourke being grilled on “The View.”
“So, if you can’t stand up to the ladies of ‘The View,’ if you need to grovel for how you were born, how are you going to lead a country of 350 million people?” Carlson asked before noting that O’Rourke “fought to stay in the race” by taking “the most left-wing position that you could take” on virtually every issue, from gun control to social justice.
“Has there ever been a more sanctimonious candidate for anything?” Carlson asked rhetorically. “Beto pretended to hate himself but that was more a cover for hating you. And his positions betrayed that. Guns? Ban them from law-abiding owners. Border security? Tear down this wall. Cops, racist. Schools, racist. America, definitely racist.”
Carlson called O’Rourke the “unshackled id of the Democratic Party,” someone who voters “would choose” if they “never had to work ever again about winning an election."
Before you feel bad for Beto's crushed ego (not that you actually do) let's take a moment to remember that this is the guy who threatened using nukes on legal gun owners. He's also vowed to snatch guns from responsible gun owners in an attempt to seem 'hip' the super left.
