Democrat Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke had a bad night on Wednesday, during the first Democratic Presidential debate, making several embarrassing stumbles while also become an object of ridicule by others on the stage. As Fox News reports:

MIAMI -- Several of the Democrats running for president found a common target on the debate stage in Miami on Wednesday: Beto O’Rourke.

First, New York City Bill de Blasio sparred with O’Rourke – the former Texas congressman who entered the race to great fanfare, but has since seen his poll numbers decline – over his support for private health insurance plans...

At another point, O’Rourke’s fellow Texan, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro – who has struggled to get attention in the race so far – hit the former congressman for not supporting decriminalizing illegal border crossings.

As the split screen showed O’Rourke and Castro going back and forth, Castro said, “I think you should do your homework on this issue. If you did your homework on this issue you would know that we should repeal this section.”

O'Rourke attempted to distract attention away from his lack of knowledge of the issues by speaking in Spanish in an obnoxious attempt to pander to the audience. Needless to say his attempts appeared to have failed with most recognizing that he was the clear loser of Wednesday night's event.
