Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been on a roll trolling Democrats, and this time, his latest target is Robert Frances “Beto” O’Rourke.
Beto, during CNN’s televised town hall Wednesday, claimed the city of El Paso, Texas will become “uninhabitable” to humans in the near future.
“My son Henry, who’s 8-years-old, he asked me the other night, ‘Dad, if you win and you become President, we get to live in El Paso, right?’” Beto said. “I said, ‘No, the way this works, we’d live in Washington, DC.'”
“But he knew because I had told him about the warming that we face that our community will become uninhabitable, will not sustain human life along this current trajectory unless something dramatically and fundamentally changes,” O’Rourke told the audience.
Sen. Ted Cruz posted a video clip of Beto’s claim, adding a common-sense response and a comical video meme. (Continued Below)
Cruz first replied by noting, “Um, El Paso is land-locked.
Then, he posted a video meme of Kevin Costner from the movie “Waterworld”, implying that El Paso will be underwater according to Beto.
Cruz added to his video meme: “Beto next year in El Paso.” (Video Below)
