Beto O'Rourke has serious hacker credentials

Beto O'Rourke has serious hacker credentials

It's tongue-in-cheek, but it might just be the first "attack ad" against Beto O'Rourke of the 2020 Presidential campaign season.

- happysnarkygal2 (@happysnarkygal2) March 14, 2019Donald Trump on Beto O'Rourke: "Well, he's got a lot of hand movement". "I said: 'Is he insane or is that just the way he acts?'" He added: "I've actually never seen anything quite like it. Study it".

Former Vice President Joe Biden is the only major contender still on the sidelines and has suggested he could remain there for several more weeks.

O'Rourke was made aware of Trump's criticism Thursday, but appeared unbothered by it.

Pelosi was asked on Thursday what was O'Rourke signature accomplishment when he served in Congress.

"Think, a free society with no high, middle, or low classification of it's [sic] people", O'Rourke reportedly said in one of his writings. Less than an hour earlier, he had finally put the rumors and speculation to rest - yes, he announced in a video shared to social media, he is running for president. Reports stirred of O'Rourke's announcement Wednesday after he texted an El Paso news station, KTSM confirming his plans to enter the 2020 pool.

Beto O'Rourke Announces His Run For President In 2020
Confirming his run to Texan TV outlet KTSM , Mr O'Rourke said: "I'm really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents". O'Rourke, whose given name is Robert Francis, acquired his nickname while growing up in El Paso, Texas.

Since O'Rourke ended the practice when he was 18, the statute of limitations would've run out for him a long time ago. Although his tenure in the House of Representatives had a voting record slightly more conservative than the average Democrat's, he unapologetically embraced and defended progressive positions in his Senate race, including marijuana legalization, criminal justice reform, and a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

Sensing the low-hanging fruit in O'Rourke's chopping, pointing and waving, late-night hosts ran with it on Thursday night.

"Hi pot, meet kettle", one person tweeted.

Klobuchar said she does not believe O'Rourke tightens her lane - "I don't think there's lanes yet" - and dodged a question about his ability to raise money after he raised and spent $80 million in his Texas Senate race. "I want this to be your campaign - a campaign by all of us for all of us that answers not to the PACs, corporations, and special interests but to the people".
