Former Texas congressman and licensed punk rock hottie Beto O’Rourke is the most recent politician to announce that he’s throwing his hat within the ring for the 2020 presidential election. Throughout final 12 months’s senate race, the Texas GOP Twitter account posted a collection of tweets attempting to assault O’Rourke for every little thing from skateboarding and the very fact he was in a punk band, to dredging up an outdated mugshot from his youth – which he had already addressed and apologized for.
And it backfired SPECTACULARLY
Perhaps Ted Cruz is afraid to debate Beto as a result of Beto was a stone-cold 90’s various hottie and Ted Cruz is…properly, Ted Cruz.

Jesus, he’s *manner* cooler than I assumed he was. Thanks for the tip, Texas GOP.

It seems that declaring how extraordinarily cool and relatable and chill your opponent is, isn’t a great political tactic.
However now that he’s working for president, voters have a brand new, rather more vital query to consider.
We all know that Beto skates, however is he even GOOD? Do we wish a president who can merely get from A to B on a board, or do we wish a frontrunner who FUCKIN SHREDS? That is the form of stuff individuals ought to be asking themselves, and former Humorous Or Die author Jon Millstein doesn’t assume Beto has what it takes to be Thrasher in chief.
This assault advert undoubtedly makes Beto’s skills appear to be, completely sketch. Fortunately for him, he’s acquired an honest period of time to hit the skate park and get his abilities as much as presidential stage. Good luck, dude.
