Robert Francis, er, Beto, was reported to have said, when he announced his candidacy: We are the “last great hope.”

Or maybe it was, “I am the last great dope.”

Or something.

Via American Mirror.

After frantically warning that climate change will end the world in 12 years if serious action isn’t taken, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is now begging his followers to give him gas money for his minivan.

The failed Texas senatorial candidate announced at the crack of down on Thursday morning that he’s running for president and seeking the Democratic nomination.

After a few events and media appearances, O’Rourke hit the road in Iowa and showed just how big of a hypocrite he is.

“Quick update from the road in Iowa. We just filled up the Dodge Grand Caravan for $28.53. Your donations are literally keeping us fueled up as we begin this campaign. Chip in $28.53 now to keep us on the road,” O’Rourke wrote, adding a link to Secure Blue, a website that only accepts donations to be made to liberals….

Why not drive an electric car if O’Rourke genuinely believes climate change is that serious of a threat?….

    Beto actually makes a good point here, in that if not for those fuel-guzzling cars, he wouldn’t have been able to get into that crash while driving drunk in 1998, after which he tried to flee the scene. And it’s also to his credit that the incident shows him to be an early adopter of renewable ethanol, albeit to fuel his body rather than his car.
