Former Democratic Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke's candidacy for the 2020 election may only be a day old, but he's already demonstrating a more presidential temperament than the current occupant of the White House.

Reacting to O'Rourke's 2020 campaign announcement on Thursday, President Donald Trump told reporters:

“I think he’s got a lot of hand movement, I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said is he crazy or is that just the way he acts? So uh, I’ve never seen hand movement - I’ve never actually seen anything like it. Study it - you’ll agree."

Watch below:

O'Rourke was asked about the President's comments and his answer said everything:

“I have nothing to say to that...I think people want us to rise above the pettiness, the smallness — they want us to be big, bold, ambitious for this country."

Watch the moment below:

The response was laden with a maturity that used to define the office for which he's running.

But when they go low, not everyone can go high...

Some thought Trump's self consciousness about his own hands spurred him to comment on O'Rourke's in the first place.

But when it comes to decorum, we have to hand it to Beto.
