An actor from a relatively unpopular HBO series appeared at Texas Southern University Monday night to stump for a U.S. Senate candidate where, naturally, he made a fool out of himself.
“Actor Kendrick Sampson, opening for Beto O’Rourke at TSU, encouraging young Af-Am students to turn out: ‘Don’t let these old white people decide our lives for us,'” said NBC’s Alex Seitz-Wald.

Sampson, from the show “Insecure,” made a couple of moronic mistakes.
First of all, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is 46 years old. His opponent, incumbent Sen. Rafael “Ted” Cruz (R-Texas) – that “old white man” to which Sampson referred – is 47 years old. For all intents and purposes, the two candidates are the same age.
Secondly, there is only one “white man” in the race, and it is not Cruz. In reality, Cruz is half Cuban, while O’Rourke is Irish-American.
The nickname “Beto” is short for “Roberto,” which isn’t even O’Rourke’s first name. Rather, he uses the nickname as a sly marketing tool. The name allows him to pretend that he is Latino, and the single name gives him a branding advantage, like the names “Cher” or “Madonna.”
In reality, the closest O’Rourke has ever come to Latin American is El Paso, where he grew up. He spent one year in public high school there before shipping out to Woodberry Forest, one of the most exclusive private boarding schools in America. Just because Beto speaks Spanish, does not mean he’s Latino.
Sampson certainly did not let the facts get in the way of his race-baiting.
Twitter took notice, replying to Seitz-Wald’s Tweet.
“His name is Robert Francis O’Rourke,” said GOP employee Steve Guest.

“The difference is, Robert is not Hispanic. At. All. O’Rourke is a fourth-generation Irish American, the son of Melissa Martha (Williams), a stepdaughter of Fred Korth, Secretary of the Navy under President John F. Kennedy, and El Paso County Judge Pat Francis O’Rourke,” said user Bob Richards.

Norm MacDonald Skewers Celebrities for Singing Atheist Anthem During Coronavirus Pandemic
MacDonald said: “God, celebrities are idiots. Shame.”
The smug Hollywood elite has once again caught the ire of legendary comedian and evangelical Christian Norm MacDonald.
MacDonald is irate over a recent viral video showing a group of A-list celebrities singing John Lennon’s pro-communist anthem Imagine in an attempt to help their fans cope with the coronavirus pandemic.
Featuring actors and actresses like Gal Gadot, James Marsden, Zoe Kravitz, Amy Adams, Mark Ruffalo, Jimmy Fallon and Natalie Portman, the display has been widely panned as showing how out-of-touch the Hollywood elite is with the public at large.
Their trite attempt to promote unity amidst a crisis be seen here:
The former Saturday Night Live comedian took great personal offense with the display considering the bleak, atheistic language in the song performed by the celebrities.
“Imagine some idiot celebrity telling her fans, in the middle of a Pandemic, to “Imagine there’s no heaven.”, when it is the only hope for so many of our elderly patients dying agonizing deaths while this rich lady smugly smiles,. mocking them and their faith in their last moments,” McDonald wrote on Twitter in a since-deleted post.
Although McDonald deleted his first tweet on the topic, he doubled down shortly afterward and expressed his anger once again with the Hollywood celebrities for their tone-deaf measure.
“I don’t know this celebrity was who sang “Imagine” online so the elderly ones who are dying agonizing deaths can be assured by a smug celebrity that there is no heaven. God, celebrities are idiots. Shame,” MacDonald wrote in a Tweet on Thursday.
MacDonald regularly takes on the entertainment industry to oppose their hypocrisy and moral preening. He was castigated in 2018 for his views about the #metoo witch hunt and comedy legend Roseanne Barr, who was unpersoned by Hollywood for making a joke.
“I’m happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit,” MacDonald said in 2018, adding that his comedy hero Barr is “not a racist.”
When asked about the destruction of legendary comedians like Barr and Louis C.K. by the left-wing mob, MacDonald said: “There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day. Of course, people will go, ‘What about the victims?’ But you know what? The victims didn’t have to go through that.”
In addition, MacDonald has made jokes in the past that many have considered derogatory and offensive to the LGBT community.
MacDonald is the last of a dying breed of comedians in the entertainment industry who refuse to bow at the altar of political correctness.
