WATCH: Beto Talks About His ‘Lifelong Republican’ Mom, Leaves Out One CRUCIAL Detail

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke has made it official – he’s running for president.

During his failed Senate bid against Republican Ted Cruz, Beto said he wasn’t thinking about the presidency. He was clearly lying.

Now, O’Rourke is once again harping about his mother being a “life-long Republican.”

The problem?

She isn’t.

From Free Beacon:

Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke again referenced his “Republican” mother at a campaign event in Fort Madison, Iowa, despite the fact that she has voted in Democratic primaries in Texas since 2000.

O’Rourke has been going through the Hawkeye State after announcing his presidential campaign, and while he hasn’t developed all the specifics of his platform yet, he has generated a great deal of media attention.

“This campaign that we ran in Texas produced something far greater and more powerful than the sum of people or parts involved. Folks crossed party lines, and I know that personally because my mom, a Republican, voted for us in that election,” O’Rourke told voters.

O’Rourke cited his mother’s supposedly Republican views during his failed Senate campaign against Sen. Ted Cruz, but CNN reported last year that such a characterization of his mother’s politics was misleading.

More on the lie:

Tucked in a lengthy BuzzFeed News profile of O’Rourke in August, however, he himself acknowledged that his mother’s politics were not as clear-cut as he lets on in his stump speech.

“I introduce my mom sometimes, and I kid her a little bit, like ‘my mom’s a lifelong Republican, but we got her to vote for us in this race.’ One day, she came up to me, and she said, ‘You know, that’s just not right: I would describe myself as an independent now, not a Republican. Definitely not a Democrat.’ I don’t know what the size of that universe is, but anecdotally we’re meeting a lot of people who have described themselves that way,” Beto O’Rourke said.

At his anti-Trump counter-rally in El Paso, Texas, the famously anti-wall Beto stood safely on stage behind barriers.

From Breitbart:

While railing against border walls at his El Paso, Texas, rally on Monday evening, Rep. Beto O’Rourke stood safely on a stage that walled off supporters behind barriers, fences, and barricades.

[…]

O’Rourke railed against border walls at the U.S.-Mexico border while enjoying personal security at his rally. Located at the Chalio Acosta Sports Center in El Paso, O’Rourke’s rally came with baseball field fences — already on the property and not placed there by O’Rourke’s staff — that walled off onlookers and kept the congressman’s stage secure from the back.

Beto had the audacity to tell his crowd that “walls don’t save lives, they end lives.”
