Beto O’Rourke’s 2020 presidential campaign can be described in three words: Spray and pray.
The Texan has been trying just about anything to get his ill-conceived campaign out of the single digits, including a series of reboots not unlike those of a popular superhero movie franchise.
For the uninitiated, we are currently in his The Dark Knight phase, wherein the El Paso native has turned dark, gritty, profane, and angry. He’s even selling t-shirts with the F-word emblazoned on them in a bid for millennial “cool points”.

Democrat presidential hopeful Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is suggesting credit cards are an enabling factor in mass shootings.
O’Rourke conflated the two via Twitter and followed it by pushing financial institutions to take action.
He wrote, “Credit cards have enabled many of America’s mass shootings in the last decade—and with Washington unwilling to act, they need to cut off the sales of weapons of war today.”
