Desperate Beto Tries to Channel Trump in Debate With Cruz. He Fails Spectacularly.

Published

on

Congressman Beto O’Rourke, challenger in a race for Ted Cruz’s senate seat, decided to try and channel the spirit of President Trump during his debate with Cruz as a means of hopefully connecting to voters and closing the gap between himself and the current sitting senator.

O’Rourke called Cruz “Lyin’ Ted” during the debate, the nickname Trump gave him during the 2016 presidential election, which came off reeking of desperation.

O’Rourke, who has his own problems telling the truth, stated, “Senator Cruz is not going to be honest with you. He’s going to make up positions and votes that I’ve never held or that I’ve never taken. It’s why the president called him ‘Lyin’ Ted’ and it’s why the nickname stuck. Because it’s true.”

Even the left-leaning Washington Post admitted O’Rourke was looking for a way out of the corner Cruz has painted him in. The Post wrote, “Seeking to discredit criticism of his record, O’Rourke repurposed the barb against Trump’s former GOP presidential primary rival.”

Some examples of O’Rourke’s flights of fancy: the Post itself gave O’Rourke “Four Pinocchios” for his claim that he did not try to leave the scene of an accident in 1998 when he was driving drunk.

O’Rourke tried to engender empathy from an audience in Lubbock, Texas, claiming, “”I grew up in El Paso where no U.S. Senator ever opened an office. We were the sixth largest city in the state. We went effectively unrepresented, unheard, unserved, in that community and I think a lot of people in Lubbock know the feeling.” But Sen. Phil Gramm had an office in El Paso for many years, according to state Representative Matthew Schaefer of Tyler.

At the end of the day, this sort of tactic is not at all going to win over the kind of voters O’Rourke is hoping for, which would be Trump supporters. These folks would rather have Cruz, who they know has a tried and true record of upholding the Constitution than to trust someone like Beto, who himself has a spotty reputation for truth telling.

Cruz still has a rather significant lead over O’Rourke, but we’ll have to wait and see if that continues to carry on through the election in November.

Ilhan Omar Comes UNGLUED, Pushes Bold-Faced Lie That U.S. Is Behind Child Murder At the Border

WTH!?

Illinois freshman Democrat Lauren Underwood blamed America for the deaths of child migrants at the southern border. More on her below. She’s lied bigly before, too. WATCH: WATCH: After a dispute over comments by Rep. Underwood about the Trump admin. and the deaths of migrant children at the southern border, Republicans voted to have her comments removed from the record. https://twitter.com/MSNBC/status/1131330661367865346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131330661367865346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F05%2Filhan-omar-accuses-us-of-atrocities-on-border%2F Fellow radical freshman Ilhan Omar (MN) parroted Underwood’s words in a very ugly way. How many more children must die before we address the atrocities our country is committing at our southern border? https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1131701844324102144?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131701844324102144&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F05%2Filhan-omar-accuses-us-of-atrocities-on-border%2F This is beyond the pale, even for Omar. After Ilhan said gruesome things about the United States as it relates to Venezuela, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley went after her pretty hard. WATCH: WOW: @IlhanMN says the U.S. has “helped lead the devastation in #Venezuela,” and accuses the U.S. on “bullying” the Maduro regime. Apparently Maduro’s starvation of his people and armored trucks running them over in the streets is not worthy of criticism in her eyes. https://twitter.com/thejcoop/status/1123676951573561345?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1123731527261720576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F01%2Fbrutal-nikki-haley-lowers-the-boom-on-rep-ilhan-omar-and-her-support-of-the-maduro-regime%2F Enter Haley: [email protected] the avg Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs.

MUST SEE: Pro-Trump Jon Voight Stands Up For the Greatest President Since Abraham Lincoln

BOLD!

Jon Voight don’t care. He’s not intimidated by the far-left wing of Hollywood. He is accomplished. He’s proud to stand for the flag and supports President Trump. In a two-part Twitter video, the actor made it clear that he believes 45 is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. From Fox News: Actor Jon Voight expressed his support for President Trump, declaring him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln” in a two-part video message posted on Twitter on Friday night. Voight said, “I know that you’ll agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. … Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln.” He continued, “Don’t be fooled by the political left because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America.” PART I: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132093445743489024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132093445743489024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F PART II: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132094914026770432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132094914026770432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F Kelsey Grammer is far from the only conservative star in Hollywood, but like Voight, he’s one of the few willing to talk about his beliefs. It couldn’t have been easy working on “Cheers” with so many far-left radicals like Woody Harrelson and Ted Danson all of those years, but Grammer came out unscathed. Now, the “Frasier” star is taking a stand for President Trump by blasting the past 60 years of “clowns” running the nation. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood conservatives, Kelsey Grammer of TV’s “Frasier,” is singing President Trump’s praises for doing more in 60 years than…
