Beto O’Rourke really wants to keep his momentum going, but sometimes, sacrifices must be made.

This is one of those times:

He’d better take the extra-fast skateboard then. The clock is ticking and he can’t afford to waste any more time than he already has on his doomed presidential run.

IT’S POSSIBLE.

How could it not be real?

Don’t laugh. This is serious, you guys.

Maybe poor Gus just got tired of hearing about how awesome Beto is and finally made a break for it.

Then all Betos are off.

Stick a fork in him, America. He’s done.
