For Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, it’s “really hard” for him to not view Donald Trump supporters as racist.
During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, the 2020 presidential hopeful criticized Trump’s rhetoric and his behavior in the aftermath of massacres in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
Host Jake Tapper started off by saying, “You said to me last week that you thought President Trump was a white nationalist. I just wonder, sir, President Trump won your home state of Texas by nine points.” He then asked, “Almost 63 million Americans voted for him. Do you think it is racist to vote for President Trump in 2020?”
It took O’Rourke a while to respond.
He then said, “I think it’s really hard.”
“I think it’s really hard after everything that we’ve seen from his time as a candidate in 2016 to his repeated warnings of invasions to his repeated calls to send them back,” O’Rourke declared. “Sending back people who are U.S. citizens, sending back people who were born in this country.”
O’Rourke continued with his assertions that Trump is supposedly a bigot.
His description of white nationalists and klansmen and neo-Nazis as very fine people. His warnings of Muslims as being somehow inherently defective and attempting to ban them from entry into this country, and his transgender troop ban and his attack on anyone who does not look like or pray like or love like a majority of the country.
O’Rourke then asserted that Trump is “dangerous to the future of America and will destroy what makes us so unique.”
The former Congressman from El Paso has made it a habit to call Trump a white supremacist. He recently told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace that Trump is making it “very clear” he is a white supremacist.
“He dehumanized those who do not look and pray like the majority of people here. He said I wish we had more immigrants from Nordic countries because those from Haiti bring AIDS, those from Africa are sh—— nations,” O’Rourke stated.
Although O’Rourke has been slipping in the polls lately, the recent El Paso shooting has given him a golden opportunity to politicize the incident and put himself in the spotlight.
In times when virtually all left-wing outlets are calling Trump a racist, it’s simply too hard for presidential candidates like O’Rourke to pass up an opportunity to lash out against Trump.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
