Classy: Beto Dropped an F-bomb During Concession Speech

Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke unapologetically dropped an F-bomb during his concession speech, which was aired on live television.

“I want to thank this amazing campaign of people — not a dime from a single PAC, all people, all the time, in every single part of Texas,” he said to a roaring crowd. “All of you, showing the country how you do this.

“Tonight’s loss does nothing to diminish the way I feel about Texas or this country,” the celebrity-backed Democrat continued. “I’m so f—ing proud of you guys.”

MSNBC was broadcasting the speech live and was forced to apologize.

“Sorry about the F-bomb,” anchor Brian Williams said. “We have no control of what’s in the concession speeches.”

Incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz defeated O’Rourke, 50.9 percent to 48.3 percent. As Katie reported, CNN (and others) are already looking at him as a possible 2020 Democratic contender.
