Responding to Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s announcement that he is running for president, President Donald J. Trump took note of his excited hand gestures.
President Trump took note of O’Rourke’s strange hand gestures he seems to make whenever speaking before an audience, saying he’s “never seen anything quite like it.”
“I think he’s got a lot of hand movement, I’ve never seen that much hand movement,” said President Trump, “I said, ‘Is he crazy, or is that just the way he acts?’
He went on, “I watched him a little while this morning, during what I assume was some kind of news conference, and I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it,” then instructed observers to “Study it, and I’m sure you’ll agree.”

The president is referencing the nonstop hand gestures O’Rourke made during his presidential announcement video, which including hand wringing, pointing, waving, and strange wiping gestures throughout the entire three minute video.
President Trump is not the first to notice O’Rourke using his hands to punctuate nearly every single word in his presidential announcement video.
Elaine Godfrey, who reports on politics for The Atlantic, joked on Twitter that the “level of gesticulation just isn’t sustainable” while quoting O’Rourke’s announcement video.
Scott Adams, the comic writer and long time persuasion expert who supports President Trump called the remark “hilariously effective persuasion,” and joked “Try NOT looking at Beto’s jazz hands the next time he talks. You can’t. You won’t even hear what he’s saying.”
This is hilariously effective persuasion. Try NOT looking at Beto's jazz hands next time he talks. You can't. You won't even hear what he is saying. 😅 https://t.co/7QTdDxamFT

While O’Rourke formally announced his campaign via the video this morning, he had already spilled the beans via text message to a local TV station, confirming his intention to run. O’Rourke, who previously assured Texans he had no desire to run for president, now says he is “born” to be President of the United States.

Joe Biden Admits He Wasn’t “Arrested” In South Africa After Exaggerated Claims
Biden said he was arrested trying to visit Nelson Mandela.
Joe Biden is walking back an exaggerated campaign talking point, after being questioned on his claims of being ‘arrested’ in apartheid-era South Africa trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison.
Biden all but admitted his claims of being arrested were false in an interview on CNN Friday.
He’s claimed that he was “arrested” in several South Carolina campaign speeches trying to visit the South African political leader.
“This day 30 years ago, Nelson Mandela walked out of prison and entered into discussions about apartheid. I had the great honor of meeting him. I had the great honor of being arrested with our UN ambassador on the streets of Soweto trying to get to see him on (Robben) Island,” Biden claimed at a Columbia campaign event earlier this month. He’s repeated the claims two times since then.
Biden admitted to CNN’s Joe Berman that he was merely stopped by customs police at the airport for a short period of time when arriving in the country with the Congressional Black Caucus for a visit in the 1970’s.
His claims of being arrested during a direct attempt to visit Mandela are equally dubious, considering he was merely stopped in the city of Soweto. Soweto is hundreds of miles away from Cape Town’s Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned for decades by the apartheid-era government.
For what it’s worth, the western political leaders such as Joe Biden who were acutely interested in South Africa during the Apartheid era of political repression have largely forgotten about the country and its declining standard of living since then.
