  • #1 nothing good ever came out of Texas the only thing Texans are known for the only thing Texans are known for is bullsh,,.ng! #2 how many times do I have to say not interested to MSNBC? They keep shoving their stuff in my face!

  • Beto should drop out and resign from Congress. Beto is unfit to serve in any positions of power. Where was Beto when AOC mischaracterized detention centers as "fascist concentration camps"? Beto should have been calling for AOC to be removed from Congress so where was Beto?

  • Way to go Lawrence. Now you can interview Bernie Sanders, and Tulsi Gabbard anytime. No more war on Progressives. Country first.

  • Yohannes Chane says:

    Two things are destroying Americans: drug and guns.
    Corporations and profiteers love them (for they are lucrative for profits)
    patriots despise and hate them for they are killing their country!

  • I don't understand a country with gun culture where the love for guns is more important than life of children and parents. Nor do I understand the illogical excuse used by uncaring gun loving people.

  • mandie sayavedra says:

    Beto prefers running over kids with a car

    Beto quote
    “As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.” (Reuters)

  • You go Beto! Take your little 2% pop gun into that bazooka fight. Anyone that is serious who looks at your lack of qualifications just laughs at you.
    This guy is a pure media creation has only succeeded in running for Congress. His businesses all would have been failures except for his wealthy family being clients and essentially giving him money. He is tall I guess….and if you want a tall, passionate, arm-waving speaker, great! The problem is he never says anything of substance because he really doesn't know anything. All image, nothing there. He needs to go home and help his wife make their little web design firm profitable. Gain some experience. Learn something.

  • If someone comes to your door with a gun and wants to take your gun away ,if you give them your gun you deserve what you get ! Just remember that governments killed over 250,000,000 civilians in the 20th century ! Special kind of stupid !

  • Beto has got the fire in the belly, keep up the passion, have relatives in El Paso, thoughts and prayers to all… Go Beto ! Take the fight straight to the Monster ! !

  • Smart politicians would recruit immigrants before the census and watch their crime rates decline as they are less criminal than Americans and bring the rates down due to the curve.

  • Maverick Watch Reviews says:

    This buffoon is hilarious. I give him another month TOPS. Then he can go back to managing a skateboard park or whatever else this moron did before he ran for every office….lmao.

  • Eugenio Colussi filho says:

    I LIKE GUNS BUT GUN CONTROL IS A MUST MY BRAZILIAN LICENCE ALLOWS ME TO CARRY IT IN A CAR OR HOME BUT NOT ON DISPLAY.IN A BELT… FOR THAT IS REQUIRED AN UPGRADE.

  • I think Beto is very selfish to keep running for a job he isn't ready for. Don't get me wrong, he's not a bad guy, but he is all talk and little substance, if you look past the anger and probebly real emotions, coz he does has empathy, doesn't mean he's ready to run a whole country. Let him work in El Paso, they seem to need a man like him. Now it all feels as if he is posing, coz he is a politician for a long while now, but all local. And all his money comes from donors from Texas, nowhere else, that means he's not even on most ppls radar. That race against the most hated man, even by his own colleges, Ted Cruz and almost won, I think it got to his head, he's in MSNBC so big outlets, so why not run, but our country is depending on a good and capable leader, coz there will be hard times coming or lots of people, if we keep doing politics as is and why I will vote for the only one who really wants to change that, Bernie Sanders. Now everything is owned by the top and the middle class is dying. Automation is costing us jobs, not immigrants and the defecit is through the roof, so we don't need a recession. I hope he can do the whole job, coz he wants to take on the big Co's and really be there for the people, working people, young people, black and brown ppl, farmers, factory workers, all of us.

  • He is going to get just enough mileage out of his El Paso connection to get to another TV debate….then he dries up and blows away….

  • THIS IS DONALD TRUMP'S PRO FASCIST WAR ON DEMOCRACY! ~ WHO WILL REPLACE WHO FIRST? ~ FROM WORST TO FAR WORST IS THE NEW NORM IN AMERICA, AND EVENTUALLY THE WORLD! ~ Nothing surprising here! Nothing shocking! Donald Trump is doing his very best to do as much damage as possible before he is removed by democracy! ~ AMERICA IS MORE AND MORE FASCIST EACH DAY, AND DONALD TRUMP ONLY HAS SO MANY DAYS TO DESTROY US, AS LONG AS THE REPUBLICANS KEEP ENABLING AND PROTECTING HIM. ~ RACISM, BROWNS IN CAGES, MASS KIDNAPPING, ETHNIC CLEANSING MASS MURDERS PROMOTED BY DONALD TRUMP, LOVE FOR MURDEROUS DICTATORS, SIDING WITH RUSSIA NUMEROUS TIMES, WHAT ELSE WILL BECOME THE NORM UNDER DONALD TRUMP? Pedophilia with a 13 year old, 12,000 lies – no that's ridiculous, nobody would, yes, more than 12,000 Trump lies IS "JUST FINE" with his base, nothing will change, it will only get worst from here until he is gone. ~ KEEP ON VOTING BLUE

  • This is enough reason for the United States to not even allow Donald Trump to run again, Donald Trump has proven to be a threat to the peace of our nation and the safety of all American citizens. ~ America must recognize Donald Trump as Enemy #1 in the White House!

  • Beto, if you have to debate with Trump, maaaan, you have nothing to worry about, he doesn’t have the brains to debate intelligently. Honestly, he has nothing on you! He is abusing the lack of intelligence of many of his supporters and in many cases insulting their intelligence. Beto can run circles around Trump!!! Specially in a dialogue!! He has the brains and the temperament of a high school kid(sorry high school kids).

  • Native American says:

    No ONE is Above The LAW. So we should feel sorry and reward those who break the law ? I dont see anyone concerned with American parents locked in prison who are now separated from their children. Robert was Convicted of a DWI and fleeing the scene of an accident. I guess criminals stick TOGETHER. 2% LMFAO!

  • immigrants commit way less crimes , while working hard to boost American economy . all while a racist american citizen drove 10 hours to shoot up el paso , where it was peaceful

  • Victor De Caluwe says:

    5:19 "I want to make sure we do the right thing: to legalize their presence here" … So he wants to make it legal to cross the border illegally. There you got the answer folks, he wants open borders.

  • beto is a good guy.he also went to juarez mexico to attend the funeral of one of the white supremacist trump supporter el paso shooter's victim.but I haven't seen that report on English news yet.i wonder why? that was last week when beto went to mexico for that funeral.still silence on the English news part,i saw it on live tv at canal 44 from juarez mexico,shame on you American reporters..

  • This is the plan Australia implemented and it worked. It is the plan NZ implemented within 48 hours of a mass shooting there. In fact the reason there was a mass shooting in NZ was because the Australian shooter could not get a gun in Australia.

  • Heritage Karma says:

    Orourke is on a mission to persuade people with lies. It is the m.o. of the liberals. deflection, lies and diversion….no truth. Truth belongs to everyone and is free of cost. The lies on belong to the liars and must be repeated frequently to keep them believable. THe great expense and cost of liberal lies are being paid by the people.

  • What a total buffoon being interviewed by another bunch of buffoons -the "free press".Both can only impress college age children.What on earth made this guy think he is capable of leading anyone at anything? They are both probably wearing their loafers without socks of course.

  • What would the GOP do if it was 22 lawmakers that were gunned down and murdered by a white nationalist mass murderer?

  • not the better agenda than other candidates which is no judgement but to me the only one agressiv enough to face the orange, criminal liar. So he is my candidate.

  • whoever says he is too young deserves old, dated Establishment. Cone on. The richest american Entrepreneurs are young . They have ideas, courage and spirit. USA desperately needs fresh young People.

  • Beto has as much chance of being president as a cow flying over the moon good fairytale though. He is make believe in every sane competent Americans eye so maybe he does have a chance HAHA!!!

  • They blame parents who have children here that are citizens. Beto, wounds from hunting rifles are worse than NATO military rounds. Military replicas don't shoot magic bullets that do more damage. Military bullets are designed to be lighter and do more humane damage based on Geneva conventions. Hunting rounds are banned in warfare.

  • National Study Academy Kim says:

    Andrew Yang is a forward thinker, he thinks outside the box, he will unite the left and right (sorry Laurence you won't be needed anymore), and has a vision that is so superior to all of the other candidates. His 80 proposals are unifying our country that not even the Donald can touch. MATH!

  • Yeah, thats what I want when my mom gets shot by a shooter. A politician to exploit my family's suffering for posturing and political and gain. Throw in some news reporters while you're at it. I just loved it when they exploit other people pain.

  • northofthewall2017 says:

    great answer, O'Rourke, you did well here.  I can feel you honesty feel what you say.  you are ahead of your time, I don't think  America is as grown up as you, I can only pray about it.

  • E-beggar-In-Bangkok 2018 says:

    So Robert Francis O'Rourke is abandoning the standard campaign playbook as he was in Iowa prior to this speech? Seems like a good decision for Robert, since his support and poll numbers were dismal and falling faster than a man on stilts filling in for a quarterback at a Super Bowl. Robert Francis has nothing to lose at this point. It's almost time to eat some more of that magic -dirt-of-defeat like he did after losing to Ted Cruz.

  • Sounds like an open border candidate who fails to recognize the effects that illegal immigration has had on other poor Americans, I just can't and won't vote for candidates like this. 90 million illegal immigrants coming to America since 1980 is a criminal act towards poor America.

  • People come here for jobs but they also assimilate into America's racism and that kills. I will not vote for an open border candidate.

  • Reparations and then you can flood America with cheap labor if you like. Never vote a candidate fighting for open borders and not for the people that open borders have destroyed.

  • Now that was a first for Beto. There was at least one policy stated in that interview. His first step towards being a actual candidate.

  • David Thévenon says:

    Great! The true Value is that of the heart. Trump is naked in this regard, but not even begging for a drop of decency.

  • HES A JERK AND I AM A LIFELONG DEM. HE COULD EASILY WIN NOM FOR SENATE BUT NO HES SELFISH AND HAS TO KEEP RUNNING DIVIDING THE VOTE THEREFORE LETTING CHUMP BACK IN AGAIN. A POX ON HIM!

    Hateful whites are absolutely disgusting and abnormal. They are truly nasty people who at all cost would rather destroy human beings than love them. They call themselves Christians but act like the children of Ha satan! Their time is COMING to an end, we must not allow them anymore power… NONE! THEY ARE EVIL and cruel.
