- Facebook / Beto O'Rourke
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.'"
A San Antonio supporter named Bryan, in his late 20s or early 30s, gave his Land Yachts skateboard to @BetoORourke. After long days, O'Rourke said, "you need a little, like, moment. So this going to be our zen. Right here. This skateboard." #txsen #txlege https://t.co/iN2wzjeUz8 pic.twitter.com/sgHbBmiHQr— Bob Garrett (@RobertTGarrett) August 20, 2018
