And he wants to be president…
Failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke has invited three young black athletes who protested the national anthem as guests to the Democrat debate.
Speaking to the Associated Press, O’Rourke said that the athletes “have served their community in one of the most American ways possible.”
“I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up or take a knee for your rights anytime, anywhere or anyplace,” O’Rourke said.
Talkshow show Ellen DeGeneres featured O’Rourke’s response on her show.
