O’Rourke continues to say anything to save his campaign.
He has to, because he knows he’ll never win again in Texas after promising to confiscate guns. It’s the presidency or nothing.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Beto O’Rourke claimed President Trump’s response to a rally attendee who shouted that Americans should “kill” illegal immigrants led to the shooting in El Paso, Texas.
During an interview with the Washington Post, O’Rourke was asked about his statements from earlier in the week when he compared the Trump administration to the Third Reich. He claimed that Trump has a pattern of comments that show he is worthy of the comparison.
In May, Trump held a rally in Florida where he explained the methods used by illegal immigrants to get into the country, asking the crowd, “How do you stop these people?”
He laughed when someone in the crowd responded, “shoot them.” The president joked that the comment can only be made Florida, saying, “That’s only in the panhandle.”
O’Rourke claimed this incident led to the shooting in El Paso, in which a white supremacist drove to the city to target Mexican Americans in a Walmart.
