Spin-tastic! Beto O'Rourke explains 'meager donations to charity' (Hint: 'Public service' for the charitable WIN)

We told you on Tuesday that Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s tax return release immediately brought him even more problems to deal with, and some of the questions that arose had to do with his charitable contributions:

On the campaign trail in Virginia, after being asked about charitable contributions, things somehow got even worse for O’Rourke with his attempt to explain:

“Sacrifices through public service”? Yeah, pretty much:

Everybody “gives back” in their own way:

From the Dallas Morning News:

Beto O’Rourke defended his meager rate of charitable giving on Tuesday night, saying that he doesn’t report all of his donations to the IRS and in any case, he contributes in other ways through his work in politics.

“I’ve served in public office since 2005. I do my best to contribute to the success of my community, my state and now, of my country. There are ways that I do this that are measurable. And there are ways that I do this that are immeasurable,” he said.

“There are charities that we’ve donated to that we’ve recorded and itemized, others that we’ve donated to that we have not,” O’Rourke said. “I’ll tell you, I’m doing everything I can right now, spending this time with you, not with our kiddos, not back home in El Paso, because I want to sacrifice everything to make sure that we meet this moment of truth with everything we’ve got.”

Now there’s some spin! Merely running for president should count as a charitable contribution now?

Everybody make sure to send him a “thank you” note for that gift!

Wow! If he wins the presidency that will probably count as the biggest charitable contribution in all of history!

Even if he did pull a muscle he’ll be back to jumping up onto lunch counters in no time.
