“When Beto O’Rourke says he can’t think of anything more American, I gotta admit, I can.” — Sen. Cruz
Rep. Beto O’Rourke was asked about his thoughts on kneeling during the national anthem. For some reason, his mediocre response went viral.
“I can think of nothing more American,” he said.
See for yourself.
Senator Cruz has a very different perspective.
All of you who think Beto O’Rourke saying NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem is the most American thing they can do, please take one minute to watch @tedcruz put in context why it’s so offensive to most Texans, veterans and patriots around the country. https://t.co/6cCkllY1Xb

“When Beto O’Rourke says he can’t think of anything more American, I gotta admit, I can. Those soldiers, those sailors, those airmen, those Marines who fought and bled to protect the flag, that’s something more American,” Cruz said to thunderous applause.

Their two perspectives encapsulate the kneeling debate, but even more telling are the responses.
Lance Armstrong, now infamous Tour de France cheater, endorsed O’Rourke’s response:

And then there are the Californians:
Beto makes a big step forward in his campaign to represent the Golden State Warriors. Only thing is, it’s Texans who will decide. Maybe disrespecting the flag and protesting the national anthem is not what most Texans support…. https://t.co/FdOmHxDYhK

Most Texans stand for the flag, but Hollywood liberals are so excited that Beto is siding with NFL players protesting the national anthem that Kevin Bacon just retweeted it. That means all of us us can now win Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon! https://t.co/8oWpL1AuyF
