Beto O'Rourke did not mince his words as he accused the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott of harming the citizens of Texas in a more graphic manner.
Beto O'Rourke: Governor killing Texans
Beto O'Rourke did not mince his words. He first laid out the reality in Texas.
"The United States has been hit hard by COVID," Beto O'Rourke said. "Texas, arguably harder than almost any other state right now perhaps with the exception of Florida and Arizona, anyway in Texas. The Rio Grande Valley and particularly Hidalgo County, is just getting the stuffin' knocked out of it."
Beto then made the crisis in Texas and particular Hidalgo county graphic.
"They're running out of beds and space in their hospitals and clinics," Beto said. "They're running out of nurses and doctors to take care of the patients. It's so bad that some ambulances are waiting up to 10 hours in order to discharge the patients that they picked up because there is no bed there to receive them. There's no longer space in the morgues in the funeral homes so they're stacking the bodies in refrigerated trucks right there. And as you pointed out our Governor, Greg Abbott, inexplicably will not only not issue a stay-at-home order for the state of Texas, he will not allow the County Judge there, Richard Cortez to issue one for Hidalgo County to save the lives of the people that he was sworn to serve and to represent.
Beto O'Rourke then clocked the governor appropriately.
"And I want to make sure that's not lost on your viewers that county is 95 percent Mexican American," Beto O'Rourke continued. "We know that Latinos and African-Americans are disproportionately bearing the burden of COVID transmission that is out of control in the state of Texas. This governor, our governor Greg Abbott, is choosing to allow people to die when he could choose to allow county judges to save their lives."
In a civil manner O'Rourke told an unfortunate truth, the governor's edicts are killing Texans. The governor has blood on his hands.
