Donald Trump Just Went After Beto O'Rourke on Twitter and People Are Reminding Trump of His Old Savage Ted Cruz Tweets

(National Archives)

Republican incumbent Senator Ted Cruz is in a tight race to retain his Senate seat. Canadian born Cruz faces El Paso born and raised Democrat Beto O'Rourke who hopes to trade in his seat in the House of Representatives for Cruz's seat in the Senate.

With the competition tight and time running out, President Donald Trump took to Twitter Friday to try to bolster Cruz's support in Texas by attacking O'Rourke. In his tweet, the President said:


"Beto O’Rourke is a total lightweight compared to Ted Cruz, and he comes nowhere near representing the values and desires of the people of the Great State of Texas. He will never be allowed to turn Texas into Venezuela!"

But people never forgot that back during the 2016 presidential campaign, candidate Trump had something very different to say about Ted Cruz. And his wife. And his father.

People also disagreed with Trump's assessment of O'Rourke—and Cruz—and let the President know.

The President's tweet attacking O'Rourke failed to garner positive feedback online.

Others did not see an endorsement from Trump as a positive for Cruz.

On Thursday, another President posted their endorsement of Beto O'Rourke for Senate. Vicente Fox Quesada, the former President of Mexico, posted a video on his Twitter feed supporting O'Rourke. He captioned his video:

"[Beto O'Rourke], what a candidate you are! You not only understand America, you know about humanity. This is what the U.S. needs: someone compassionate yet firm. I stand with you because I believe you’re what America needs."

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
