Robert “Beto” O’Rourke held a protest on Monday against protecting America with a barrier at our southern border — while being protected himself by really tall fences.
O’Rourke, the former congressman from El Paso who had unsuccessfully attempted to unseat Senator Ted Cruz, held the protest in response to President Donald Trump holding a campaign rally nearby in support of a border wall.
O’Rourke is also weighing a presidential run — even though he got his butt kicked in the his senate campaign. He has said that he will announce his decision by the end of the month.
During his speech, he declared that “walls don’t save lives — walls end lives.” He railed against Trump’s claims that the parts of the borders with barriers are significantly safer than those without.
“With the eyes of the country upon us, all of us together are going to make our stand here in one of the safest cities in America,” he said. “Safe not because of walls but in spite of walls.”
The problem is, he was standing in front of a really blatant tall fence.
Like Nancy Pelosi, who has a big beautiful gate around her property, it seems that O’Rourke is just another Democrat who wants protection and safety for himself — but not for the American people he wants to represent.
