Journalist Hit With Inconvenient Facts After Comparing Lauren Boebert Confrontation to Beto’s Stunt

Texas Governor. Greg Abbott spoke Wednesday at a press conference to discuss Tuesday’s horrific mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, Uvalde. It claimed 19 lives and injured two teachers.

We reported that twice-failed Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke made a poor political stunt at the press conference against Abbott, who he is challenging in the 2022 Texas governor race. He accused Abbott and other Republicans of doing nothing to stop gun violence and suggested that the shooting was “totally predictable.”

The MSM started to swoon before Beto was even out of the door.

As it turned out, the media swooning extended to Colorado. Kyle Clark, a purported NBC News Denver “journalist”, broke out the pom-poms for Beto, referring to how Rep. Lauren Boebert (Republican from Colorado) “launched” her political career by confronting Beto during a 2019 presidential candidate campaign stop in the state. This was after his September comments where he said “Hell yes, We’re going to take YOUR AR-15 and your AK47”.

Good grief.

You’d think that the differences between these events were obvious. But, apparently, it was necessary to draw a map to show why Boebert’s 2019 confrontation was different from the one Beto intentionally staged Wednesday.

Another difference between them that you should note is that Boebert was not running for office at that time. Three months later, she declared her candidacy. She wasn’t expected to win the election. To be clear, she was not running against Beto O’Rourke.

Beto, however, is a veteran mover and shaker of Democratic politics and will be facing Abbott in the fall. He clearly saw the moment as a way to make a political statement and raise money for his campaign against Abbott.

One Twitter user commented: “If the Beto choreographed outburst wasn’t a stunt to raise campaign donations from leftists other than Texas, then you haven’t been following politics for the past decade (or more).”

Case Closed!
