Ouch….that’s gonna sting!
Is “Beto-mania” already over?
Oh “Robert Francis”, we hardly knew you! 😁
The man who was red-hot during his Senate race against Ted Cruz has petered out recently, in a dramatic fashion.
But honestly, if he couldn’t even beat Ted Cruz (no offense Ted), how in the hell is he gonna beat Donald Freaking Trump?
Yeah, not gonna happen.
Certainly not with only 35 people (ok, we’ll round up to 50 for you) showing up to his event on a college campus (UNLV) that has a nearly 30,000 enrollment.
By my math, that means Beto drew .00117 of the students, which is 1/10 of one percent of the campus.
Aren’t college campuses the places that are MOST likely to want to see a big lib like Beto?
Even Lindsey Graham was getting 1% of the vote back in the 2016 primaries.
But 1/10 of 1% is just plain sad!
Anyway, I digress.
Let’s get into the pictures and reports so you can see for yourself:
And one of my personal favorite comments:
And you gotta love this one, bless their little hearts!
The Twitter feed "Elect More Democrats" tried to put a positive spin on it, saying that "Nearly 3 Dozen people showed up!"
Three whole dozen!? Get out of town!
Here's more, from RedState:
Has Beto experienced failure to launch? It sure looks that way.
He had a rally setup for Friday on the campus of UNLV. The advertisements featured him stomping on cars like a revival preacher.Whoever owns that SUV isn’t going to be happy about the big dents he put in the roof.
You’d think this was going to be a real rocking time given the lead up. College campus, young people, liberal area, etc. It’s the perfect situation for a candidate like Beto. Reality wasn’t kind to him though.Here’s the thing with the “well, it was Friday” excuse. Donald Trump, even Bernie Sanders, can go have a rally anywhere, at anytime, and thousands will show up. The idea that if only Beto had been there on Thursday, then he’d have had a captive enough audience to garner more than 35 people is a weak excuse.
Beto’s ego so out sized reality that this was the venue change when they realized there were probably more media members than students at the rally.It looks like they expected at least 200-400 people. There are other pictures showing a large stage as well overlooking that large area shown on the left. Instead, he drew about the same number of people your local blues bar gets for a Tuesday night jam.
I said it weeks ago. This guy is done. Without the media constantly fawning over him like 2018 and vilifying his opponent, he’s revealed as an empty vessel. You don’t run for President because you’ve got nothing better to do or because you want to discover yourself. It’s not an adolescent trip to summer camp. Perhaps worse for Beto, Pete Buttigieg has pretty much taken his support base by being more inter-sectional.
Even the self-proclaimed Beto-supporters are admitting it's bad:
A lot of people had a good laugh at Robert Francis' expense:
