BETO BAIT AND SWITCH! 2020 democrat channels his inner ‘Dark Knight’ in ANOTHER campaign reboot

Beto O’Rourke had us all fooled.

Much of the media spent yesterday believing that O’Rourke was about to drop out of the presidential race altogether after consistently failing to poll outside of the low single digits among the 20-odd democrats seeking the Oval Office.  Hollywood, and the Houston Chronicle, were calling for it, and Beto’s profane floundering as of late indicated the frustration of he and his campaign team.

But, taking a page out of the millennial perception playbook, Beto is channeling his inner Batman and attempting to rebrand himself as some sort of gritty, angry, Dark Knight-esque character to appeal to the progressive masses.

Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke rebranded his presidential campaign on Thursday, promising to avoid frivolous activities like the Iowa State Fair and focus on serious, existential threats to the United States like Donald Trump’s administration and firearm ownership, alongside illegal immigrant communities.

“I’m confident that if at this moment we do not wake to this threat, then we, as a country, will die in our sleep,” he said in a speech in El Paso, Texas, announcing his return to the 2020 presidential race. This speech marks O’Rourke’s second campaign reboot — after a “reintroduction,” in the words of his staff, in May after the initial buzz from his campaign announcement died down.

The remaking of the campaign was, in part, to protect himself from criticism regarding his choice to skip the Iowa State Fair in favor of visiting Mexico.

O’Rourke abandoned the campaign trail for several days after the mass shooting at a Walmart in his home city of El Paso, Texas, and even skipped events in Iowa to visit Mexico.

During his speech, O’Rourke scoffed at the “corn dogs and Ferris wheels” campaign optics at the Iowa State Fair and said he would campaign with immigrant communities instead.

A recent profane rant by Beto could unlock the reasoning for the turn toward anger.

Just days ago, O’Rourke lashed out at reporters with a hearty “what the f**k?” in regard to a softball question lobbed his direction.  If his campaign team perceived some sort of advantage in polling, fundraising, or other support in the wake of this outburst they may very well be attempting to cash in on the candidate’s candid anger.

The Texan is no stranger to hyperbole-infected stunts, having several times made it a point to remind the nation that he knows how to, (barely), ride a skateboard in a plea to millennial voters.
