Monday night, failed U.S. Senator Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke held an open borders rally in El Paso, Texas to counter President Donald J. Trump’s massive rally – which O’Rourke did from behind a fence.
The most expensive failure in U.S. Senate candidacy history can be seen greeting supporters who were not allowed past the fence in a video posted by Phil Prazan, a local Texas reporter.

After the fenced-in rally, O’Rourke doubled down on his commitment open borders for you, but not for him, by posting a photo of an erected barrier at the border, and demanding that it be torn down.

O’Rourke’s rally was, at one point, drowned out by cheers from Trump’s rally, and in its usual fashion, the Trump campaigned trolled O’Rourke by projecting his speech on a giant screen behind O’Rourke’s stage.
O’Rourke is expected by many to be a 2020 presidential candidate, but has spent much of his time since his failed Senate bid goofing off, even Instagramming a visit to the dentist live. If he has plans to announce a presidential run, mum is the word.
