Democratic Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel slammed Democrats on Thursday over their 2020 enthusiasm for failed Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke, saying, “You don’t promote a loser.”
“If Beto O’Rourke wants to go and run for president, God bless him,” Emanuel said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” in a video segment reported on by the Free Beacon.
Sen. Ted Cruz (D-TX) won re-election over O’Rourke in November despite the media’s non-stop promotion of O’Rourke as they tried to turn Texas blue.
“He should put his hat in and make his case,” Emanuel continued. “But he lost. You don’t promote a loser to the top of the party.”
