Beto O’Rourke Drops F-Bomb During Concession Speech [VIDEO]
BETO O’ROURKE SAYS F-WORD IN CONCESSION SPEECH
After one of the closest gubernatorial races in the country, O’Rourke took the stage to passionately congratulate his supporters. However, his concession speech was spiced up with the use of the f-word; “All of you showing the country how you do this. I am so f***ing proud of you guys,” O’Rourke said.
Whereas his audience applauded, the network airing his speech was less enthused. MSNBC anchor Brian Williams apologized for the politician’s language, noting that they do not control what is said in a concession speech. While CNN and Fox News were not airing O’Rourke’s speech, C-SPAN also aired it uncensored.
