Former Texas Congressman and potential 2020 Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke exploded on the Trump administration this week; viciously comparing President Trump’s rhetoric with statements made in ‘Nazi Germany.’
In Iowa, @BetoORourke says the president’s rhetoric on migrants and calls to ban Muslims sound more like the Third Reich than the USA.
Asked about the comparison after the rally, he emphatically stood by it.

“I thought, what is that doing to her head and her conception of herself and what she is able to contribute to this country, when the president of the United States has called Mexicans rapists and criminals, he then went on to call asylum seekers animals and an infestation,” O’Rourke said.
“We would not be surprised if in The Third Reich other human beings were described as an infestation, as cockroach, as a pest that you wanted to kill, but to do that in 2017 or 18 in the United States of America doesn’t make sense,” he added.
BETO BOMBSHELL: New Video Shows Staffers Used Campaign Funds to ‘ILLEGALLY AID’ Migrant Caravan
Unbelievable undercover footage released by Project Veritas Thursday raises serious legal and ethical questions surrounding Beto O’Rourke’s senate campaign; revealing top staffers potentially violated federal law by using campaign finances to help undocumented workers traveling with the ‘migrant caravan.’
The bombshell video shows O’Rourke’s field manager and others scheming to help the migrants after crossing into the US; suggesting campaign workers use donations and other official funds and resources to assist Central American migrants entering the United States.
“You know that migrant caravan? A few of them got here already and they’re dropping them off like really close,” said a campaign field manager. “I’m going to get some food right now and some stuff to drop off.”
“Don’t ever repeat this stuff but like, if we just say we’re buying some food for an event, like Halloween events,” suggested another staffer.
“That’s not a horrible idea, but I didn’t hear anything,” said the manager. “I think we can use that with [prepaid campaign debit cards] to buy some food, all that sh*t can be totally masked.”
BETO FLIPS: O’Rourke Now Backs Reparations, Says US Needs ‘National Conversation’ on the Issue
Potential 2020 Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke back-tracked from previous comments regarding racial reparations Wednesday; saying he now supports a “national conversation” surrounding financial restitution for America’s history of slavery.
“Foundational to the word ‘reparations’ is ‘repair’. Foundational to repair is the truth,” O’Rourke told supporters during a speech at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.
“And until all Americans understand that civil rights are not just those [historic] victories… but the injustices that have been visited and continue to be visited on people, we will never change that we need to live up to the promise of this country,” he added.
“I don’t believe that should be the primary or initial focus of the conversation,” concluded the Texas Democrat. “I think it is understanding the facts… and those actions will take place after there is a national conversation with facts and truth.”
