Texas AG Criticizes O'Rourke for Disrupting Abbott's Press Conference


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) is criticizing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke for interrupting a press conference on the Uvalde school shooting.

During an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday, Paxton said, “I understand that Beto has differences of opinion with the governor and maybe many of us on stage. That’s OK.”

“And there’s a time and place for that. I understand that he made the argument that this is the right time because we lost these children. But it really was a bad timing situation for him,” he continued.

Paxton went on, “Coming into that situation where I believe that it’s a time for us to all be united, the focus on the parents, the focus on the kids, the focus on the people that have suffered, as opposed to exposing our political differences which we really do have plenty of time to resolve.”

“Today is about supporting these families, not about fighting each other,” he added.

During the event, O’Rourke was seen trying to address Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R).

“You are doing nothing,” O’Rourke said.

Do you think this was a good move by O'Rourke?

He added, “You said this was not predictable, this was totally predictable, and you choose not to do anything.”

In case you missed it:

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told him, “Sit down. You’re out of line and an embarrassment.”

Another man identified as Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin said, “You need to get his a** out of here. This isn’t the place to talk this over. Sir, you are out of line! … Please leave this auditorium.”
