Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James supported Hillary Clinton in 2016.
His fights with President Trump have gone viral.
Once, James even referred to the most powerful man in the world as a “bum.”
Now, LeBron was caught wearing a hat in Texas supporting a Democrat Senate candidate who is losing in the polls.
It’s Beto O’Rourke.

From Daily Caller:
This is not the first time James has shown his support for O’Rourke. In August, the Lakers superstar tweeted praise for the Texas representative after a video went viral of O’Rourke speaking about his thoughts on NFL players kneeling during the anthem. He called the video “a must watch” and called his response “candid” and “thoughtful.”

O’Rourke has been saying lately that his mother is a “lifelong Republican” in an effort to get conservatives to lean his way.
Unfortunately for Beto, he was just caught in a major lie.
O'Rourke keeps talking about his "lifelong Republican mom."
His mom voted in Democratic primaries in 15 of the last 17 primary elections, including Democratic party primaries in 2000, 2008, 2012, and 2016 that included presidential primaries.

More on the lie:
Tucked in a lengthy BuzzFeed News profile of O’Rourke in August, however, he himself acknowledged that his mother’s politics were not as clear-cut as he lets on in his stump speech.
“I introduce my mom sometimes, and I kid her a little bit, like ‘my mom’s a lifelong Republican, but we got her to vote for us in this race.’ One day, she came up to me, and she said, ‘You know, that’s just not right: I would describe myself as an independent now, not a Republican. Definitely not a Democrat.’ I don’t know what the size of that universe is, but anecdotally we’re meeting a lot of people who have described themselves that way,” Beto O’Rourke said.
Beto claims he did not flee the scene of a drunken driving crash.
He did, in fact, leave the scene.
Even more interesting, though, is Beto’s years-long alliance with a man who compares America to Nazi Germany and law enforcement to terrorists.
From Daily Wire:
Senatorial nominee Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke has for years been a recurring guest on the “Drug Truth Network,” a fringe pro-drug legalization media outlet whose founder has compared America to Nazi Germany and law enforcement and military members to terrorists.
Beto for president?
From Texas Monthly:
Beto O’Rourke is a 45-year-old three-term congressman representing the sixth-largest city in Texas. He serves on the less-than-almighty Armed Services and Veterans Affairs committees. In parliamentary parlance, he’s a back-bencher. He is currently running a long-shot Senate campaign in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to statewide office since 1994, and, to this day, he hasn’t led a poll in the race. But over the past couple weeks, certain quarters of the internet have floated the idea that O’Rourke might very well run for President of the United States as soon as 2020.
