Politico recovered an outstanding review Beto O’Rourke gave while he was 19 years of age at Columbia University. O’Rourke wrote a Broadway musical review where he made highly sexist remarks against the lead actress, claiming her only attributes were “phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.”
Politico reported, “In 1991, the 19-year-old O’Rourke reviewed the Broadway musical “The Will Rogers Follies” for the Columbia Daily Spectator, the university’s student newspaper. Writing under the byline Robert O’Rourke, he panned the performance as “one of the most glaring examples of the sickening excesses and moral degradation’s of our culture.””
Beto O’Rourke starts his review in his typical pretentious was by ridiculing the musical.
“Basically, the show documents the life of Will Rogers, the ‘lassoing fool,’ who rose from being an insignificant side show attraction to one of the more prominent political pundits and cultural statesmen in our history. Yet it is produced and directed in such a showy, glitzy, and ultimately, tacky manner, that one cannot help feeling disgusted throughout the show.”
However, O’Rourke should have stopped there because as he continued he went into a highly sexist rant where he objectified the female role as a piece of meat.
Keith Carradine in the lead role is surrounded by perma-smile actresses whose only qualifications seem to be their phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.”
This story comes after O’Rourke was caught breaking campaign finance laws by accepting money from foreign nations.
