Whataburger, whether intentionally or not, has turned into a cornerstone of the Beto O'Rourke campaign.

First, the Ted Cruz campaign shared a baffling statement on the guy, comparing him to a "triple meat Whataburger liberal." Here's that statement in full:

"Unlike the spicy ketchup, when Texans unwrap the O’Rourke packaging, they are definitely not going to like what they see underneath. He’s like a Triple Meat Whataburger liberal who is out of touch with Texas values."

And now the rep is cruising into Whataburgers on his statewide town hall summer road trip on a Land Yacht skateboard.



In the Facebook Live video posted on Saturday, the Representative is seen riding a skateboard in a Whataburger parking lot, living his best life.

According to Bob Garrett of the Dallas Morning News, the skateboard was a gift from a San Antonio supporter. The reporter went on to share that "After long days, O'Rourke said, 'you need a little, like, moment. So this going to be our zen. Right here. This skateboard.'"

And now we want Whataburger...
