As Twitchy recently reported, Beto O’Rourke, who lost to Sen. Ted Cruz in the midterm election, wrote a brief blog post on Medium Sunday criticizing the Trump administration’s handling of the migrant caravan and suggesting that an army of immigration lawyers be deployed to the border to handle all those “asylum” cases.
As any serious news magazine would, Newsweek decided to expand O’Rourke’s two-minute read into a feature-length article and then tweeted this:

O’Rourke lost his Senate bid, so now Newsweek is going to cover everything he says as if he were president? Were there no actual senators to interview? Lindsey Graham was pretty talkative about the migrant caravan today, and he’s actually in a position to influence policy, and not in a pretend way.

No, seriously, how would President O’Rourke handle it?
By going to Glamour Shots and getting a photo?

I’ll bet writing this made the author all moist.

"What's all that giddy screaming coming from Lower Manhattan? Did Chris Hemsworth wander into an all-girls high school?"
"Close. Beto O'Rourke wandered into Newsweek headquarters."

Does the reporter have a full-sized poster of O’Rourke with “Dreamy!” written on it in lipstick?

I mean, the obsession is almost disturbing

Dear God it will be insufferable if he gains any traction in 2020 as a candidate and the media fawning all over him like the second coming.

How would he have handled it if he were a Senator?
— Physics Geek (@physicsgeek) November 27, 2018
He’d drop in to the nearest empty pool and do some sick moves.

Pound some beers and go for a car ride

He'd let them all in and give them voter registration cards.
We know what he'd do

Spoiler: He’d open up our borders and create a migrant crisis similar to what Europe is currently experiencing…

Do you also do the same story on everyone else who lost their bid to be elected a Senator?
