Senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway called-out Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke Tuesday; blasting the former Texas lawmaker for “screaming and cursing” about President Trump in the wake of two mass shootings.
“Beto O’Rourke — from the Vanity Fair magazine cover to the vanity project candidacy — out there screaming and cursing about President Trump. That doesn’t heal a single soul. That doesn’t help to prevent another mass shooting,” said Conway.
“This is a disgrace and if nobody else is going to talk about it, I’m going to talk about it. The president did not respond in kind. They politicized this over the weekend. They all blamed him and I want to name and shame them now because he did not respond in kind. They want to be president? He is the president. And he is trying to bring the country together and have concrete bipartisan, bicameral steps,” she added.
O’Rourke viciously attacked President Trump and his supporters weeks ago; saying his recent ‘MAGA’ event in North Carolina was like an “impromptu Nuremberg rally.”

“Do you think that President Trump is a racist?” asked ABC News.
“Yes, President Trump is a racist. What we saw in North Carolina last week was almost an impromptu Nuremberg rally; inciting hatred and violence against people based on the color of their skin, based on their religion,” said O’Rourke.
“It’s very clear the path that he is taking us on. We either willingly submit to that, or we stand up against it and stand for what we know this country can be. That’s what I’m trying to do,” he added.
