It was reported during his failed Senate run last year that former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (TX) fled the scene of a DWI over two decades ago. Beto has denied this happened.
However, officers at the scene of the crime say Beto did, in fact, attempt to flee. So, who is telling the truth here? Is it the lying politician who is constantly caught lying? Or is it the cops.
Hmm. Tough call, huh? If Beto were honest just a little bit more often, maybe people would believe he’s telling the truth here. But he’s not. And he isn’t.
From Texas Tribune:
The former police officer who arrested Beto O’Rourke for driving drunk in 1998, along with the sergeant who signed the incident report, both say they believe now what they reported at the time: that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of the wreck he caused.Trending:
O’Rourke admits he was intoxicated and says there is no justification for his actions, but he has denied that he tried to flee.
Neither the investigating officer, Richard Carrera, nor his former supervisor, Gary Hargrove, specifically recalls the events of that night more than 20 years ago. But both of the former Anthony Police Department officers told The Texas Tribune they have no doubt the report they compiled and signed is accurate.
A Beto spokesman noted, “Beto’s DWI is something he has long publicly and openly addressed over the last 20 years at town halls, on the debate stage, during interviews and in Op-Eds, calling it a serious mistake for which there is no excuse. This has been widely and repeatedly reported on.“
LOOK (zoom in):
Beto O’Rourke, truth teller?
Not so much.
In that respect, he actually fits in quite swimmingly with the other 2,385 Democrat presidential candidates.
Check this out…
From Daily Wire:
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke made five false statements in an attack on President Donald Trump this week when he was confronted over why he compared the president to the Third Reich.
O’Rourke noted, “I compared the rhetoric that the president has employed to the rhetoric that you might have heard during the Third Reich. Calling human beings an ‘infestation’ is something we might have expected to hear in Nazi Germany.“
He added, “Describing immigrants who have a track record of committing violent crimes at a lower rate than native-born Americans as ‘rapists and criminals.’ Seeking to ban all Muslims, all people of one religion, what other country on the face of the planet does that kind of thing or in our history or in the history of the western world?“
Ryan Saavedra points out exactly where Beto was lying.
Listen to the clip below, then go back and read the bullet points within the tweet.
Democrat Beto O’Rourke lies a lot right here:
-Trump said “we have an ‘infestation’ of MS-13 gangs in certain parts of our country”
-The travel ban is not a Muslim ban
-Trump never said neo-Nazis and KKK members were “very fine people”
-The remaining comments need more context

Come on, “Beto.” Be better.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz is royally ticked off – and rightfully so.
Apparently, Reuters knew that O’Rourke was a bad apple during his Senate race in 2018 but said nothing.
Check out Ted’s tweet…
So Reuters had evidence in 2017 that Beto may have committed multiple felonies—which Beto confirmed on the record—but deliberately withheld the story for over a year to help him win his Senate race? But when he’s running against Bernie etc, NOW it’s news?
