Beto ORourke Announces Presidential Bid

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke revealed that he plans to run for President of the United States via a text message sent to a local TV station.

KTSM reported that O’Rourke is officially launching his presidential campaign on Thursday morning, and that he gave them the exclusive information via a text message exchange between the station’s journalists and the failed senate candidate.

The former El Paso Congressman will make the announcement on Thursday morning, but he confirmed via text to KTSM Wednesday afternoon that he is seeking the Democratic nomination.

“I’m really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents,” O’Rourke said in the text. “It’s a big part of why I’m running. This city is the best example of this country at its best.”

Speculation on whether he would run for president has been discussed since his Senate loss to Ted Cruz in November. An appearance with Oprah and a February showdown in El Paso with President Donald Trump only added to the discussion.

This comes after O’Rourke promised Texans he would not use his new level of fame to run for president, telling a reporter “I’m not looking at 2020. In fact, I’m completely ruling that out. Not going to do that,” adding that regardless of whether he was elected to the senate he was not interested.

“Win or lose, I’m not running in 2020… The answer is no.”

In spite of his now-broken promise, there has been escalating speculation that O’Rourke intended to run for president over the last few months. Last year he quietly met with former President Barack Obama and his aids, who urged O’Rourke to run. Earlier in 2018, there were endless articles declaring O’Rourke to be the new Obama, frequently referring to him as the “White Obama.”

O’Rourke’s ticket may prove a challenge for radical leftists to overcome, as the candidate recently pledged not only to forego building a wall at the United States-Mexico border, but to actually dismantle the existing border barriers.

He also attempted to upstage President Donald J. Trump during a rally in El Paso, Texas with his own event. President Trump’s audience, speech, and music were so loud they could be heard from O’Rourke’s comparatively much smaller event, leading many online to mock O’Rourke’s pathetic attempt.

Also available at O’Rourke’s rally was an interesting circus side show, which allowed attendees to violently beat a piñata made to look like President Trump.

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Published

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
