(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Drew Hernandez, a reporter for Frontline, confronted failed Texas Senate candidate and all-round shameless race huckster Robert Francis O’Rourke over his exploitation of the Uvalde shooting to shill for gun control and “further” his campaign.
“Hey Beto, how do you feel exploiting dead kids? How do you feel exploiting dead kids? Do you care?” Hernandez asked O’Rourke, who has camped outside of the NRA Conference in Houston to yell at freedom-loving gun owners, according to National File.
“The parents in Uvalde said they didn’t want you there!” Hernandez told O’Rourke.
“What do you say to the parents I talked to yesterday in Uvalde who said they didn’t want you there? They didn’t want you to do that Beto, they didn’t want you to exploit dead kids Beto!”
Beto did not make eye contact with Hernandez, nor did he make any attempt to defend his actions.
Twitter users came out in support of Hernandez’s attempt to get answers:
Good job man 👏👏👏🇺🇲 he needs to hear from his potential constituency more often. 😎⚖🇨🇱

Why hasn’t anyone confronted Beto about appropriating a Hispanic nickname? Not cool
