Beto O’Rourke was praising his supporters for not taking a dime of PAC money when he dropped a perfectly placed f-bomb.
O’Rourke said, “I want to thank this amazing campaign of people, not a dime from a single PAC. All people, all the time in every single part of Texas. All of you, showing the country how you do this! I’m so f-cking proud of you guys!”
Beto O’Rourke showed why even in defeat millions of Americans love him. Rep. O’Rourke is real. His emotion was authentic and genuine. Democrats should not be disappointed that O’Rourke didn’t win. Beto helped Democrats flip dozens of seats in the state legislature. Rep. O’Rourke is a political star who will have a national platform going forward. Just like Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams, Beto O’Rourke has risen to prominence, as Democrats should feel very optimistic about the future.
The Democratic Party is developing something that the dinosaur party of Trump is sorely lacking. Democrats are building the next generation of diverse and great leadership.
The future is going to look like what the Democratic Party is building, not what the Republican Party is trying to hold on to.
Beto O’Rourke’s dropping of an f-bomb showed that he is what Trump will never be.
Beto is real.
