(TeaParty.org) – The eyes of the socialist-leaning millennial Democrats have been on now-former Texas Senate candidate for months now, but it didn’t take long after conceding to prove he has neither the dignity nor self-control to serve as a member of the Senate.
In a move that embarrassed even the mainstream media, who did little to mask their support for the progressive candidate, O’Rourke dropped the f-bomb in his concession speech, which had anchors fumbling to apologize for their inability to censor O’Rourke’s language.
“I want to thank this amazing campaign of people — not a dime from a single PAC, all people, all the time, in every single part of Texas,” O’Rourke said to the crowd. “All of you, showing the country how you do this.”
“I’m so f—–g proud of you guys,” he said.
Here is a (properly censored) clip:
Brian Williams of MSNBC, who was covering the concession speech, appeared obviously flustered at O’Rourke’s language.
Social media users were also quite taken aback, noting he’s not quite “president material”, as the Dems are now hinting at running him in 2020.
Clearly Presidential material. 🙄

Even Politico was forced to acknowledge “it was an unusual vulgarity to hear from a member of Congress on live television.”
Of course, O’Rourke’s whole campaign was a bit unusual. It was unusual that the Democrats thought such a far-left progressive had a chance in Texas. It was unusual that Democrats poured so much money into a likely doomed campaign.
But it was particularly unusual that he was hailed as such a hero when he is an inexperienced Representative with a history of drunk driving that he’s lied about and nothing more to offer than skateboard skills and promises of income equality.
So is it really that surprising that he doesn’t have the self-control to watch his mouth when speaking in front of a crowd, on national television?
