     O'Rourke should hide. Beto O’Rourke, former Texas congressman and one-time Democratic presidential hopeful, spoke out late Friday against the Lone Star State’s response to the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. Mr. O’Rourke took to Twitter to sharply criticize how the Republican administrations of both President Trump and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott have countered the coronavirus outbreak.

     Citing a new study about COVID-19, the contagious disease the coronavirus causes, Mr. O’Rourke noted Texas tops a list of states where it is spreading at an uncontrollable rate.  “A deadly lesson in failed leadership: Texas leads the country in uncontrolled spread of coronavirus. Despite what Trump & co. (Abbott & Patrick) say, stay home if you can & wear a mask if you have to go out. It will save lives,” Mr. O’Rourke tweeted, referring to the state’s lieutenant governor, Dan Patrick. Mr. O’Rourke further slammed the state’s handling of the outbreak later Friday in response to a tweet posted by the governor’s official account.  A major fool, as always.
