That was Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat running against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was disrupting a press conference the day after 19 students and two adults were killed. Deadliest school shooting in a decade, O’Rourke was rescued from an event in the Uvalde (Texas) High School auditorium.

O’Rourke, an interruption from a political rival and an active candidate on the campaign trail, did not sit well with politicians during the gloomy moment. “Sit down,” replied Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick. “You’re out of line and an embarrassment.”

Sen. Ted Cruz – who defeated O’Rourke in his re-election campaign in 2018 and stood behind state leaders – rebuked O’Rourke: “Sit down and don’t play this stuff.”

Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin had harsh words for O’Rourke, calling him “the sick son of a bitch who would make such a deal to make a political issue.”
