Beto O’Rourke just crashed a news conference on the deadly school shooting in Texas … confronting Governor Greg Abbott and other Republican leadership, including Ted Cruz, and getting escorted out.
Beto showed up unannounced to Wednesday’s press briefing in Uvalde, where 19 children and 2 teachers were shot and killed the day before at an elementary school, and went off on the state’s GOP leaders.
Video shows Beto approaching the stage, where Abbott is sitting on the dais along with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and blames them for the tragedy, saying the blood is on their hands.
Beto says to the group, which includes Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn … “This is on you until you choose to do something.” He also says the incident was predictable.
Beto’s been vocal about the school shooting on social media, mostly going after Abbott, but now he’s literally taken the crusade to the Governor’s feet.
Someone on stage shoots back at Beto, who is running for Texas Governor, telling him this isn’t the time or the place to get political.
Beto’s then escorted out by law enforcement … while some folks in the crowd call for him to be able to speak.
