Failed Candidate Beto O'Rourke Cut Steak and Liberals Can't Even
You would think Beto O'Rourke would go away after failing to unseat Ted Cruz. Not so. In the Democrat party, losing is winning (see This New Beto O’Rourke Ad Needs to Be Seen to Be Believed and Another Beto O’Rourke Ad is Here to Assault your Eyes and Crack Your Ribs). As such, Beto is being considered as a serious presidential candidate. So when he does things like cut a steak, we get articles like this.
Beto O’Rourke is cutting up flank steak over on Instagram in case anyone asks how it is I got pregnant. https://t.co/vxpryuO30g— Ξvan Ross Katz (@Ξvan Ross Katz)1541995257.0
My sexual orientation is now Beto slicing up a steak https://t.co/mKcdpHtqlq— Delia Cai (@Delia Cai)1541989544.0
First off, his steak if overcooked. Yes, I know our guy in the Oval eats his steaks well done. Probably with ketchup. Which, as far as I'm concerned, is the eighth deadly sin. If you can substitute your steak for a hammer, go sit in the corner and never reproduce. You're a heathen.
But if you're from Texas and you're bragging about your cooking on Instagram, you should know better. These are points which shouldn't have to be made.
Also, a real man knows his steak should look sexy all on its own. Sans some political pretty boy licking his fingertips in what some of his audience decided was a sexually suggestive manner. No.

We've had a lot of fun at O'Rourke's expense, and will continue to do so as long as he's out there glamming up the gram. But I'd advise taking him seriously as a potential presidential candidate. Sure, policy-wise he's like a brisket in an Instapot. A decision no sane person would ever make. But elections are the reverse Shapiro: feelings don't always care about your facts. When most Americans are too busy raising their families and making a living to study the minutia of tax policy, they'll vote for someone they connect with on a personal level. Voters in Texas - TEXAS - connected with Beto to where he came within two points of winning a US Senate seat. Think about that, Texans. You're not as red as you think you are. Your state may be more like Beto's steak here.
Multiply Beto's appeal across the country. Where even liberal fans of his were mocking people from outside of Texas with Beto signs. Like him or hate him, he became a sort of movement all on his own.
Just saying. A lot of what the left is saying about Beto now is similar to what they said about a little known State Senator Obama.
