The GOP Twitter account sent a hilarious tweet mocking Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke on St. Patrick’s day. The GOP posted a picture of O’Rourke’s DWI arrest with a screenshot of a leprechauns hat reminding people to drink responsibly.
GOP tweeted, “On this St. Paddy’s Day, a special message from noted Irishman Robert Francis O’Rourke.”
In 1998 O’Rourke was arrested for drinking and driving, where he side swiped a truck at 2 A.M. O’Rourke attempted to flee the scene unsuccessfully, but got off the hook from his wealthy father who was a Judge. O’Rourke was on his way to a booty call with an ex and was willing to put the lives of all Texans on the road for it.
