Beto O’Rourke made it official Thursday. He’s running for president.
I am running to serve you as the next president. The challenges we face are the greatest in living memory. No one person can meet them on their own. Only this country can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us. Say you’re in: https://t.co/EKLdkVET2u pic.twitter.com/lainXyvG2n

I noticed “Ted Cruz” trending this morning and wondered if he said something snarky about it already. Nope. Not yet. Ted Cruz is actually trending, because Twitter isn’t letting Beto forget that he lost to Cruz, despite having all of Hollywood backing him up.
If you couldn’t beat Cruz, you’re not going to beat Trump. Trump fights back even harder. He’ll mock the crap out of Beto.
I really thought Beto would be more well-received than this. Guess I was wrong. (I’m happy about being wrong about that.)
