Is Donald Trump team Beto?
One would think not, but on same day that former Congressman Beto O’Rourke publicly announced his plans to run for president, the country’s current president boldly tweeted “VETO!” Hmm…
At first glance, many people who had the charismatic, book and burger-loving dad on the brain, saw the word “BETO.” And because Trump is known for his Twitter typos, and V and B are right next to each other on a keyboard, it took people a second to realize he was actually announcing his intention to veto the Senate’s vote rejecting Trump’s declaration of a National Emergency over immigration at the southwestern border.
Still, Beto fans were quick to take the opportunity to troll Trump, and remind him that just because he tweets the word “VETO” doesn’t make a veto official.
The similar spellings are unfortunate for Trump, but Twitter users are having a blast filling timelines with Beto love and memes about attempting to declare a veto via social media.
Best of luck to Veto O’Rourke on the campaign trail.
