We’ve all heard that Beto O’Rourke was once arrested for driving drunk, and that’s bad. What was worse was when he in a debate with Sen. Ted Cruz contradicted the police report that he had tried to flee the scene of the accident after he hit a truck — a claim which earned him four Pinocchios from the Washington Post’s fact checker.
There’s plenty to dislike about O’Rourke’s politics, but some free advice: maybe stay away from the word “reckless.”

Reckless like drunk driving and trying to flee the scene of a near-fatal crash? https://t.co/ChQNZkOj4W

You using the term reckless probably wasn't the smartest thing, Mr DWI crash and fleeing the scene.

Drunk driving dude, lecture us some more on recklessness.

I thought reckless applied to your driving or lying about your driving. https://t.co/ber00fvlLh

Reckless like getting drunk, then into a wreck and fleeing the scene? And then lying about it? That kinda reckless? I’m still trying to figure out what rock you climbed out from under. #VoteRedToSaveAmerica2018

Word of advice: I wouldn't use the word "recklessly" if I were you. Might remind people of how you left the scene of a crime after crashing your car while driving drunk. Take the advice or leave it….just like you left the scene of a crime.

Why is no one talking about your recklessness when you left the scene of an accident and a DUI?
