Beto O’Rourke interrupted the Wednesday press conference of Gov. Greg Abbott and Texas officials disrupted the press conference Gov. It didn’t go down well and was rightly called a crass, political stunt by many including Senator Ted Cruz (R.TX), who was one of the officials on the stage addressing the tragedy.

Beto received positive media coverage from liberal media, including CNN’s Chris Cillizza who stated that now was the right time to use “political energy” for gun control. This just demonstrated how far they would go in describing such a tragedy as useful for their political momentum.
He may have thought it was beneficial for his campaign, but he doesn’t really understand Texas voters who won’t be able to forgive him for what he did. While it might be helpful for people on the extreme left, it won’t help him with Texas voters.
TIME’s most insulting and funny take on Beto was perhaps the one that was not intended. It was clearly trying to make him look brave and heroic. They mistakenly called Beto “Beta” when they were tweeting about his confrontation with Abbott over “gun control.”

The original tweet misspelled Beto O’Rourke’s name. It’s Beto and not Beta. Oh my. Is that an innocent error or are TIME interns more knowledgeable than we might think? That’s a bit of a correction. Many people responded that they were correct at first and that Robert Francis is his real name. This could be the moment when liberal media finally gets it right, for once.

He wanted attention. He now has it. He may not have the one he wanted.
