Beto O’Rourke’s Campaign is Slinging Mass Shooting T-Shirts, One Day After the Deadly Rampage in Texas
Beto O’Rourke’s campaign released a new t-shirt on Sunday in response to the deadly rampage in Texas just one day before.
The seven victims who lost their lives in the mass shooting that took place in Midland and Odessa have not even been buried yet.
The black t-shirts, which his campaign is selling for $30 each, reads “This Is F—ed Up,” which he is apparently trying to make his new slogan. The campaign says that they will be donating the proceeds to Moms Demand Action and March For Our Lives, while soaking up the free publicity from standing on these bodies.

The shirt is based on a speech he was giving in Fairfax Station, Va., when he heard about the shooting happening in Texas.
“Not sure how many gunmen. Not sure how many people have been shot. Don’t know how many people have been killed. The condition of those who have survived. Don’t know what the motivation is, do not yet know the firearms that were used or how they acquired them,” O’Rourke said during the speech. “But we do know this is f—ed up. We do know that this has to stop in this country. There is no reason that we have to accept this as our fortune, as our future, as our fate.”
O’Rourke repeated his “edgy” use of the phrase on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
The poorly polling candidate has also said that he will enact “red flag laws” and forcefully confiscate AK-47’s and AR-15’s if he’s elected president of the United States.
