Beto O’Rourke’s Political Grandstanding in Uvalde Backfired No Matter How Much Fake News Slants It

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick shared his take on Beto O’Rourke’s “political stunt” at Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday following the tragic shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“I could never imagine that on this day when we were there to not only disseminate information and learn more, but were there to be with these families that he would pull such a political stunt,” Patrick said. “You know, I thought and I said in my comments after he finally left, that can’t we have just one day, one week, one month of us all coming together for these children that’s not a political stunt, not partisan politics?”

“Where’s our humanity? And what we found out is Beto O’Rourke was more interested in his political ambitions than he was about these families. And that’s what I think was really the tragedy of his behavior,” Patrick noted. “It showed he really didn’t care about these people and that’s what we were there for.”

During O’Rourke’s political stunt, Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin yelled, “[Y]ou’re a sick son of a b—- that would come to a deal like this to make a political issue.”

Someone in the audience yelled at O’Rourke “get the f— out of here” with another male voice booming,” Uvalde doesn’t deserve your nonsense and we don’t want you here.”

On the Fox News “Hannity” program Mayor McLaughlin said it is “too important” in the aftermath of tragedy to properly reflect, and allow public officials to provide grieving families the information they need without political histrionics.

“That was not the time and place to have that discussion. If he wants to have that discussion, that’s fine. But today at that conference was not the time or place to do that,” he said.

“My heart is broken for these families that lost these children… but that’s the problem. Every time we have one of these, it’s a political deal. What happened to the grown men that we elected to represent us in Congress?”

  1. Insensitive stunt to gain attention for himself. He is the face of the Democratic Party and all it represents and displays. Once outside, the reporters wasted no time sticking their iPhones in his face and asking moronic questions, so I guess he got what he came for. Now we have Mehgan ( never to be queen) and Markle laying flowers at the memorial. How convienent the press knew when and where she would appear for her sorrowful photo op. “It’s all about me.”

  2. I saw what happened at my mechanics, while gettng the mud and rocks out of my tires. The man was sickening, and the press hopped on it like a robin on a June bug, taking away all attention from the grief of these families, to promote taking American guns away.

  3. I saw it too and it was so shameless of him. It’s sad that nitwit politicians like him want to turn something that should be about the children and their families and make it about themselves and their agendas. These precious children will never get the chance to grow up and that’s the most heart wrenching of all. I’m so glad they kicked his lousy butt out of there.

    Prayers for the people whose lives were lost and for their loved ones left behind. 🙏🙏🙏
