Beto O’Rourke defended his meager donations to charity by saying he sacrifices come through public service.
Could Beto be any more egotistical and condescending at the same time? This has been true for the vast majority of liberals who have run for public office, to include that socialist Bernie Sanders. They’re very generous with other people’s money but never with their own, thinking that is charitable enough.
At a town hall at the University of Virginia tonight, a student asked Beto O’Rourke why her sister, a recent college graduate, makes much less money than he does but has donated more to charity than the amount that he reported on his 2017 tax return. His response: pic.twitter.com/yNCK58KjTD

The Dallas Morning News reported that Maura Nakahata, a senior majoring in chemistry with a minor in government, asked O’Rourke why if he made seven times what her sister made, she gave more money to charity than O’Rourke.
As Jenna Johnson of The Washington Post reported, O’Rourke responded loftily:
I’ve served in office since 2005. I do my best to contribute to the success of my community, of my state, and now, of my country. There are ways that I do this that are measurable and there are ways that I do this that are immeasurable. There are charities that we donate to that we’ve recorded and itemized, others that we have donated to that we have not. But I will tell you, I’m doing everything that I can right now, spending time with you — not with out kiddos, not back home in El Paso — because I want to sacrifice everything to make sure that we meet this moment of truth with everything we’ve got.

Interesting choice of words “sacrifice” for a guy that penned a story about “accelerating a car into a group of children while hearing them scream.”
Beto, the people of Texas already rejected your donation of “me” and the citizens of the United States will as well. Sell arrogant and crazy somewhere else.
