Beto O’Rourke crashes Abbott press conference on Uvalde school shooting

Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke crashed Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday as the governor was providing an update on the shooting at a Uvalde elementary school that killed at least 21 people Tuesday.

O’Rourke walked toward the stage after Abbott’s opening statement and could be heard saying “you are doing nothing.”

Sen. Ted Cruz responded to O’Rourke’s display, calling O’Rourke an “embarrassment.” Multiple other Texas leaders were standing on the stage surrounding Abbott, including Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Texas Speaker Dade Pehlan.

O’Rourke could be heard saying the shooting was “totally predictable.”

O’Rourke was escorted out of the venue by police. Outside, he spoke to reporters.

“There’s no words that anybody shouting can come up here and do anything to heal those broken hearts,” Abbott said after the exchange.
