Beto O’Rourke Hounded by Veteran at Campaign Event, Fumbles Response

The 2020 election is shaping up to be a strange one, indeed, with no less than 16 candidates on the democratic side of things so far, with more certain to announce their candidacy any day now.

The field itself isn’t particularly bold so far.  The frontrunners so far have been Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, who mysteriously hasn’t announced his candidacy yet, despite the reality that he has been doing stump speeches with a campaign team behind him for weeks.

Biden is a DC stalwart, best known for his time as the Vice President to Barack Obama.  On the other end of the spectrum, however, is Beto O’Rourke; a national-level newcomer whose skateboarding antics made him a household name during his unsuccessful bid to unseat Senator Ted Cruz in Texas.

For what it’s worth, Beto, along with his family, ate magical, “regenerative” dirt after the loss, in order to heal properly.

Now, as the Texan trudges forward with his campaign, he’s getting down to the nitty gritty of stumping for political points, recently having been involved in a somewhat heated discussion with a veteran of the war in Afghanistan.

The former congressman from Texas said that under his administration, there would be an understanding that the U.S. is not capable of determining the internal affairs of another nation and that he would pull out U.S. troops after Afghanistan without hesitation.

“You have the humility of understanding that, as powerful as we are, we cannot determine the internal affairs of other countries,” the candidate said, as a bodyguard stood between him and the questioner with a hand on O’Rourke’s waist.

The veteran, however, pushed O’Rourke for specifics while holding a beer at the Charleston event.

“Right, but how are you going to get us out of there?” the veteran said.

O’Rourke replied that he would just bring the troops home.

This was simply not enough of an answer for the passionate serviceman.

“I understand that. But I served there. It’s not as easy as just ‘time to go home.’ What’s your plan for getting us out and not leaving the country the shitshow it is,” the veteran responded to O’Rourke.

The strangest past, however, was O’Rourke’s bodyguard’s behavior during the incident, as seen in the following video:

Nothing says “man of the people” like having an impersonal bodyguard separating you from the constituents whose votes you are attempting to garner.
