Beto O’Rourke recently announced that he will be running for president and the announcement caught the attention of late night hosts. Especially, Jimmy Fallon.
According to The Daily Wire:
Failed U.S. Senate candidate and former Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) announced on Thursday that he will be seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination and it took less than 24 hours for late-night host Jimmy Fallon to publicly ridicule him.
In a sketch for the “Tonight” show, Fallon portrays O’Rourke as an overzealous man-child who drank one too many Red Bulls and whose only claim to fame is failing to oust Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in Texas.
Seated next to his long-suffering “wife” as she clings to his rapidly flailing arms, Fallon’s O’Rourke begins his announcement by reminding everyone that he’s super “excited.”
“Hi, I’m Beto O’Rourke and I’m excited!” Fallon says in the sketch before admitting once again that he’s excited. “That’s it! I’m just excited.”
Judging by the response to the announcement it will be a fun campaign to watch as he fights to take on President Trump.
