As we told you earlier, video of Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke making some hamburgers left a bad taste in the mouths of many (it’s better than watching him get his teeth cleaned, but just barely). DC Examiner editor Jay Caruso welcomed O’Rourke’s break:
So Beto's taking a break from telling everyone how racist the country is to show himself making burgers with processed cheese served on an English muffin with a side of raw broccoli.
Why is he not polling higher?

Soledad O’Brien — perhaps due to “journalist” instincts kicking in — quickly came to the defense of O’Rourke:
Might be a tough sell, but the country is kinda racist. Just fyi. https://t.co/5Lvt4epNWe

Maybe peoples’ opinions on the matter depend on the crowd they hang out with:
I only ever hear people who hang out with Lefitsts say that. I wonder why that is… https://t.co/eTiC68Fn5G
