TIME Magazine Has Greatest Unintentional Owning of Beto O’Rourke – Opinion

On Wednesday, Beto O’Rourke disrupted the press conference of Gov. Greg Abbott and Texas officials disrupted the press conference of Gov. But it didn’t go over well, rightly being termed a crass political stunt by many, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), one of the officials who were on the stage having to address the tragedy.

Beto did get some positive press from the liberal media including from CNN’s Chris Cillizza, saying now was the time to use “political momentum” for gun control. They just went so far to call such a tragedy “political momentum” for gun control.

If he thought that it was helpful for his political campaign, he truly doesn’t understand the people of Texas who are not going to look kindly on what he did. It might help him with folks on the far left, but it isn’t going to help him with Texas voters.

TIME’s most insulting and funny take on Beto is perhaps from TIME. They were doubtless trying make him look brave and amazing. But in the process, as they tweeted about him confronting Abbott about “gun control,” they mistakenly called him “Beta.” The correction was something else.

“The original version of this tweet misspelled Beto O’Rourke’s name. It is Beto, not Beta.” Oh my. Or was that an error of judgment? Now that’s some kind of a correction. Many responded by saying that they had been correct at first and that Robert Francis was his real name. It could be that this was one of those moments when the liberal media got it right for the first and only time.

He wanted attention. It’s now his. It’s just not what he expected.
