MEAT THE PRESS: Beto Posts Bizarre Cooking Video, Struggles to Make a Simple Cheeseburger

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.27.19

When Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said he was “born to serve” we didn’t think he meant this. In his latest attempt to capture the spirit of the “Average Joe” and reinvigorate his failing campaign, Beto shared a video of himself…making cheeseburgers.

Eagle-eye users on social media were quick to question his burger-making skills.

“He slipped up. Humans don’t use English muffins as hamburger buns,” posted one user.

“I have a lot of notes on where this went wrong. He can eat bad hamburgers, I don’t care. But metal spatulas on non-stick wear? Monster,” said another.

 

“How can you trust the competence of any candidate who would not at least take the time to at least Center the slice of cheese. I have zero confidence in his ability to do anything,” raged another user.

 

O’Rourke made national headlines earlier this month when he claimed the USA was “founded on racism.”

“This country was founded on racism, has persisted through racism, and is racist today. If you don’t want to accept that phrase… Look at this: There’s ten times the wealth in White America today than there is in Black America,” said O’Rourke in Arkansas.

“Our country was founded on racism—and is still racist today. In Arkansas, I said why I believe there’s no denying this reality; and why it’s on all of us to change it,” posted Beto on social media.

O’Rourke made similar comments earlier this year, telling a roundtable of migrants that the USA was “based on White Supremacy.”

“I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that this country was founded on white supremacy,” he said, according to the Tennessean. “And every single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression, even in our democracy.”

ABRAMS 2020? Stacey Abrams Says Georgia ‘SUCCESS’ Shows She’s ‘Capable’ of Running for President

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.27.19

Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams touted her electoral “success” Wednesday morning; saying her botched bit for governor makes her “just as capable of becoming President of the United States as anyone running.”

“I am deeply appreciative of those that are encouraging me to run for a variety of offices. I will say the presidency wasn’t top-of-mind to begin with, but I think the success I had in our election, transforming the electorate… positions me to become just as capable of becoming President of the United States as anyone running,” said Abrams.

“My responsibility is to make sure I’m running for the right reasons at the right time, and this is not a conversation I was having with myself last year,” she added.

APOLOGY TOUR: Beto Tells The View He’s Sorry for ‘Privileged and Elitist’ Presidential Campaign

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.14.19

Failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke publicly apologized Tuesday for his “privileged” and “elitist” presidential campaign launch; saying he will reintroduce himself to American voters in the weeks ahead.

“O’Rourke specifically indicated he regretted saying he ‘sometimes’ raised his son, and that his Vanity Fair cover ‘reinforced’ the perception that he was privileged,” reports Fox News. “When co-host Joy Behar asked if he thought the Vanity Fair cover looked ‘elitist,’ O’Rourke nodded his head.”

“You used the Vanity Fair Cover to announce your campaign. You said you were ‘Born to be in it.’ You went across the country alone on a road trip after you lost the election… These are things in my mind that a female candidate wouldn’t get away with. Do you think you can get away with more because you’re a man, and do you have any regrets?” asked co-host Meghan McCain.

“You’re right. There are things that I have been privileged to be able to do in my life that others have not. The more I travel and learn, the clearer that becomes to me,” said O’Rourke.

Beto’s poll numbers have nosedived in recent weeks despite unveiling his own ‘Green New Deal’ estimated to cost US taxpayers more than $5 trillion over the next decade.

O’Rourke’s “very first bill he sends to Congress … will mobilize $5 trillion over 10 years — spurred by the single largest investment to fight climate change in history — to transform our aging infrastructure, accelerate innovation, and empower our people and communities to lead the climate fight,” states the proposal.

Beto’s plan comes months after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released her ‘Green New Deal’ that aims to reduce car travel, airplanes, consumption of red meat, “classic” construction materials, and more.

O’Rourke’s proposal aims to “”set a first-ever, net-zero emissions by 2030 carbon budget for federal lands, stopping new fossil fuel leases, changing royalties to reflect climate costs, and accelerating renewables development and forestation.”
