As you know, Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke interrupted a news conference on the Robb Elementary School shooting to do some campaigning against Gov. Greg Abbott, who was leading the news conference along with Sen. Ted Cruz and Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin. Keep in mind that this is the same O’Rourke who, while campaigning for president, was selling “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s” T-shirts, but during his more recent gubernatorial campaign said, “I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment” — so you know he’s a shameless opportunist. What does he want, then?

Kyle Clark, who as far as we can tell is a journalist with Denver NBC affiliate 9 News, notes that Republican Lauren Boebert did the same thing to Beto O’Rourke, and he let her have her say.

What a gentleman.

Candidate O’Rourke could have called his own press conference to comment on the shooting, and that would have been a proper campaign stop. This wasn’t, and Clark knows it.
