The media has apparently been doing quite a bit of work covering up for 2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke.
According to a revived report from the Washington Examiner, O’Rourke lied during a 2018 debate about the circumstances surrounding a DUI he was put in jail for in the 1990s — and the media hasn’t said a word about it.
While O’Rourke promised that he didn’t leave the scene of the accident, this report alleges the opposite.
Facts Always Come Out… Eventually
The 2018 Senate race between incumbent Ted Cruz and Democrat challenger Beto O’Rourke was a national story.
Nobody could believe a popular Republican in the red state of Texas was struggling against an upstart Democrat.
While some things about O’Rourke’s past came to light during the election, it now appears as though we were not getting the full story by the mainstream media, ever conscious to protect a man running to replace President Donald Trump.
Indeed, the major media outlets have kept quiet about the fact that in 2018, O’Rourke blatantly lied about his past DUI.
“I did not try to leave the scene of the accident, though driving drunk, which I did, is a terrible mistake for which there is no excuse or justification or defense, and I will not try to provide one,” O’Rourke reportedly said.
But he did try to leave the scene, according to the report. He was just too drunk to do so.
That isn’t the only lie O’Rourke told about the incident, either.
According to O’Rourke, he and his father had been out drinking, and O’Rourke got into an accident on his way home.
But what really happened, according to the report, was that O’Rourke was meeting an ex-girlfriend for a “booty call,” then crashed his car when he was driving her back home.
As he was being arrested, he did at least have the decency to have the officers dig into his wallet for cab fare for the girl. But that doesn’t make up for his blatant lies.
Is this a man we really want to be president of the United States?
