I swear, it’s like Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is trying to get President Donald Trump reelected.
O’Rourke still hasn’t figured out that the radical’s take is one that may play well to a very loud group of politically rabid people, but that group isn’t exactly large. The rest of the country wants next to nothing to do with it, and it shows with all the money, approval points, and audience Trump is getting.
Regardless, O’Rourke seems to believe that the radicals outnumber the Americans and he’s continuously saying things that indicate he’s with them.
The latest happened at TribFest 2019, where O’Rourke essentially admitted that the only thing standing between Democrats and passing sweeping leftist reforms that would fundamentally change the country is Trump.
“The best possible path, especially if you are concerned about a country that has never been more divided, perhaps more highly polarized every day, is for this president to resign,” O’Rourke said. “Allow this country to heal, and assure that we come back together with the greatest, most ambitious agenda we’ve ever faced, none of it possible while he remains in power.”

O’Rourke said Trump should take a page out of Nixon’s book and resign so that the left can do what it wants, according to the Daily Wire:
“I think back to what we saw in 1974 with [former president] Richard Nixon,” O’Rourke said. “At the end of the day, before we got to the end of the trial and the end of impeachment hearings, Republican senators went to the White House and met with the president and said for the good of the country, for the good of your political career, for any legacy that you want to be able to maintain, the right thing for you to do now is to step down.”
“And he did,” he continued. “I think there is a similar opportunity open to members of the Senate right now, and frankly, open to those around Donald Trump.”
For one, Nixon’s political career never recovered, and he was popularly known as the President who left the office in shame.
That said, O’Rourke doesn’t seem to understand that it’s not just Trump between Democrats and their reforms. Even if Trump goes, there is still VP Mike Pence, a Republican majority in the Senate, and a very strong possibility that in 2020, the Republicans will retake the House.
In fact, it may boil down to that since both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the unofficial leader of the Democrats, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are both willing to sacrifice the House if it means they get more votes towards Trump’s impeachment.
The real kicker here is that all of these Republicans won’t just achieve power by themselves, they’ll be voted in by the people. So, in truth, the real blockade standing between the radical left and its agenda is the American people, and O’Rourke can’t impeach or force them to resign.
The American people don’t want what the radicals want and O’Rourke just essentially told them that if they don’t support Trump, he and his hard-left allies are going to steamroll over everything. No wonder Trump’s approval rating continues to rise to the point where he’s now beating what Obama’s was around this time in his presidency.
This is almost as bad as the time O’Rourke straight up admitted that he wanted to take our guns.
