John Cornyn Tries To Pick a Fight With Beto, Gets Brutally Knocked Out By Houston Police Chief Instead

In a desperate attempt to bail out Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is in deep electoral doo-doo in the Lone Star Senate Race, John Cornyn, the other Republican Senator from Texas is trying to pick up a fight with Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke.

As noted by the Houston Chronicle, just 24 hours after Sen. Cruz and O’Rourke agreed to a series of debates, Cornyn “wanted to draw O’Rourke into a discussion about guns over social media.” It completely backfired.

Cornyn on Saturday night started the exchange by Tweeting out an old clip of O’Rourke saying in February that he opposed selling AR-15s in America.

“I just don’t think we should be selling AR-15s in this country,” O’Rourke says in the video clip Cornyn tweeted out to his 140,000 followers.

Cornyn Tweeted out the question: “For self defense?”

Beto chose not to reply to the Senior Senator from the NRA but Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo did, and it wasn’t pretty:

“In 32 years policing I’ve yet encounter a case of a community member using an AR-15 for self-defense. I’m not saying it hasn’t happened, but I’d bet the house they’ve been used many, many times to slaughter innocent Americans as opposed to self-defense,” Acevedo tweeted.

Cornyn fired back with standard NRA boilerplate. To which Acevedo quickly shut down with a reasonable response.

Read the weet exchange below:

When questioned by The Chronicle as to why he jumped in, Acevedo said he didn’t do it to help Beto but that…

“You have to stand for something.”

Meanwhile, Cruz is now babbling about Bar-B-Que.
