Beto’s new conspiracy theory on immigration emerges as candidate slips in polls

Beto O’Rourke has some work to do, but it looks as though the candidate is looking to take a conspiratorial shortcut instead.

During his attempt to unseat Senator Ted Cruz back in 2018, Beto O’Rourke was no stranger to political stunts.  The young candidate was seen on several occasions skateboarding throughout the social media landscape, in an effort to appear “hip” or “cool”.

In the run-up to 2020, O’Rourke has continued this trend, using his first debate appearance to engage in a little “hispandering”, answering questions both in English and in Spanish – a move blasted by late night talk show hosts just hours after his performance.

Now, as Beto moves further down the enormous list of democratic candidates, Beto is attempting yet another Hail Mary by tying the nation’s immigration crisis to global warming.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) told demonstrators and the assembled media outside the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children that migrant children from Central America “had no choice but to come here” because climate change had ravaged their countries.

O’Rourke said that rising temperatures had created droughts, which made it more difficult for people to grow their own food. That, he said, forced them to undertake the arduous journey on foot to the U.S. border, and to cross illegally.

O’Rourke isn’t the first 2020 democrat to appear at the facility either.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) was the first the protests: he was followed on Wednesday by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and then several other candidates decided to visit as well, turning the protests into something of a presidential pilgrimate. O’Rourke was preceded an hour before by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

O’Rourke’s Wednesday night debate debut was overshadowed immensely by dark horse candidate Tulsi Gabbard, who stole the show after embarrassing the low-polling Tim Ryan of Ohio.

If this latest PR scheme doesn’t pan out, O’Rourke may be skateboarding onto the dais for his second debate…if he makes it that far.
