Hah! Phony ‘Beto O’Rourke” Was “Bob O’Rourke” When He Went to School at Columbia
Man of the people is a phony.
Beto O’Rourke isn’t even his name!
Beto O’Rourke Was Bob O’Rourke in college.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
When Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s 2018 Democratic opponent ran for city council in El Paso, Texas and then for Congress in a heavily-Hispanic district, he was Beto.
When he was captain of the crew team at a prestigious Ivy League university a decade earlier, he was Rob.
The Irish-American O’Rourke has long explained that “Beto,” the Hispanic nickname for his given name Robert, was a nickname given to him in infancy that “stuck.”
“My parents have called me Beto from day one,” he told CNN after Cruz released an ad attacking his adopted name, “and it’s just — it’s kind of a nickname for Robert in El Paso. It just stuck.”…
…But it apparently didn’t stick when O’Rourke, the son of an influential El Paso judge, was part of the crew team at Columbia University. At least three articles in two separate publications show that while attending the school, O’Rourke went by “Rob” or “Robert.”
