    Beto O'Rourke was the darling of the leftist media--their political rock star who was supposed to get rid of Senator Ted Cruz, whom the media despises.
    O’Rourke had more than $70 million, a record for a U.S. Senate race, and unlimited liberal media hype. Once again, the voters of Texas disappointed the left by refusing to elect its darling.

    But the mainstream liberal get upset when president Trump ask Hannity to come onstage but look at this guy pretending to do comedy and in reality campaigning for the democratic party. All of them nbc, abc, cbs, npr, nyt, cnn, msnbc, hbo, etc are nothing but bots for the liberal/commie democratic party.

    Reasons to NOT listen to late night NPC "comedians"

    At the time this video was uploaded to youtube, Colbert stated the race was "close".
    It wasn't close then, and its not close now.

    The aggregate at the time put Cruz at +9

    These late night assholes, NEVER mention the aggregate. He also went on to say that Trump has a %36 approval rating.
    That is also false.
    At the time this was uploaded, the AGGREGATE had Trump at around %47 approval.


    ALWAYS check the aggregate kids, and look into these things for yourself. Dont let these pundits lie to you.

    As an ambitious lady with values, Cruz is an embarrassing trader for Texas. Our president did establish he was ‘lying Ted’ for a reason. Democrats have my vote this time. Beto clearly states and backing up his plan with evidence. All I hear from Lying Ted is bashing and making up lies towards Democrats. With the values I grew up, acting immature, and lying are not the principles I choose to follow. Another great point why democrats have my vote is due to lack of support to Texas Ted Cruz has done over the years! Vote for Beto if you want to put back the foundation of our Founding Fathers once had visioned.

    No, he won't win.And YOU know it's bad when a democrat has to get a Hollywood TV endorsement . He tried to sell to us that Santa Fe Texas is the safest city in our state. If he thinks that, let's see what suburb he REALLY lives in, and if it gates or an alarm system. How much money did it it take to endorse his campaign. And he didn't just have a drunk driving accident...he attempted to flee the scene. Nothing is cool about this guy. Nada

    How could I have voted democrats? If for nothing, I would vote based on the roaring economy not based on any mouth appeal by liars. I am black and proud, 8 years of Obama's eloquence has brought us misery, division, destruction of the economy. If nothing more on the ground of Trump, I will vote Republican. Thank God for the expose of donations into their camp , but without this expose, i would still have voted Republican. If you vote democrats, you should be ashamed to enjoy the benefits that is sweeping America through the Republicans. A word is enough for the wise

    Beto O'rouke has a liberal arts degree and Ted Cruz graduated at the top of his class at Harvard law. Allen Dershawitz came out and said that Ted Cruz was the most brilliant student he ever taught during his entire 30 years at Harvard. The way the msm portrays him is just scary.

Elvis, James Dean... all these legendary wild cats, the world loved them, envied American culture, it was so creative and alive, and now you don't even dare to smoke a cigarette. So trite and boring, spreading across the globe like the biggest snorefest in history of mankind.

Seriously on the real, if you think Robert cares for you your a fool. Hes charming on the outside but a snake dude. He DOES NOT care if your doing well or not. Power is his motivation..

    Drunk driving, burglar Beto skateboarding is pretty damn foolish. This reminds me of Michael Dukakis riding around in the tank back in the 80's. Cruz is pulling ahead and will be reelected by a comfortable margin. I hope to see this comical clip of Beto in some Republican ads. There won't be a blue wave in Texas.
