Beto O’Rourke who is a Texas gubernatorial candidate completely derailed Governor Greg Abbott’s response to the school shooting in Uvalde.
The governor was able to speak for around 10 minutes, but when he passed the microphone on to his lieutenant governor, Dan Patrick, the conference was interrupted.
Just prior, Abbott was praising the heroic police officers who intervened and prevented even more children from being murdered.
“You are doing nothing,” Beto shouted while aggressively pointing at the stage. Most of what he said was unable to be heard, due to the sheer amount of bystanders that were yelling back at him. Beto seemed upset that Abbott would not call for gun reform.
The Mayor of Ulvade shouted at O’Rourke calling him “a sick son of a bitch”. It wasn’t long before security caught up and removed the candidate from the premises.
The shooter with some sick sense of humor updated his Facebook status as he carried out the string of horrific and cruel crimes.
“I’m going to shoot my grandmother,” he posted. Soon after he posted another update, “I shot my grandmother”. Finally, the last post read “I’m going to shoot an elementary shool (sic).”
The authenticity of these posts was confirmed by Governor Abbott during the press conference.
