2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke ate dirt after losing to Ted Cruz; Cruz responds

On Wednesday, the Washington Examiner and others reported that Democrat 2020 White House hopeful Beto O’Rourke actually ate dirt after losing to Republican Ted Cruz in the 2018 election.

Moreover, he also fed dirt to his family.

According to the Examiner:

The revelation comes in a lengthy Washington Post report which divulged new details on the road trip the former congressman took after his defeat in the midterm elections and the ensuing “funk.”

During a January stop in New Mexico which did not make it into his blog, O’Rourke, 46, ate the local dirt, which the report said is believed to have “regenerative powers.”

He also brought some of this New Mexican dirt home to his family to eat.

Ted Cruz responded: “Words escape me.”

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Keep in mind this is the same Beto O’Rourke who wants to get rid of the border wall, once wrote a very questionable poem as a youngster, has what appears to be a fairly questionable past, is great at spouting far-left platitudes and is pretty sure he wants to ban the sale of all AR-15s.

There is an upside to this, however. News that Beto once ate dirt should be a reminder that if he or any other Democrat gets elected to the White House in 2020, we’re all going to end up eating dirt…
