Beto O’Rourke demonstrated perfectly on Wednesday why voters in Texas CONTINUE to reject the failed politician. The way he interrupted Governor Greg Abbott’s press conference in Uvalde — clearly as a staged, political stunt — proves he’s ‘human trash,’ Glenn and Stu say. But there’s another reason — one you've probably never heard before — why Beto likely will never win another election: Glenn reads SHOCKING writings from O’Rourke’s teenage years, uncovered by Reuters years ago…

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Do we have the audio of the political stunt that Beto O'Rourke did, as -- where he danced on the dead bodies of children?
VOICE: Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me.
VOICE: Sit down. You're out of line. And an embarrassment.
VOICE: Is right now -- and you're doing nothing.
VOICE: This is totally predictable when you choose not to --
VOICE: Sir, you're out of line.
GLENN: Now, this is a mayor who has --
VOICE: Sir, you're out of line. Please leave the auditorium. I can't believe you're a sick son of a bitch to come to a deal like this to make a political issue.
STU: I love that guy. I freaking love him.
GLENN: I love the fact that he had a walker.
STU: Yeah. And he comes up, and he's like, get out of here, you sick son of a --
STU: Yeah. That's exactly the -- because, you know what, Beto is human trash. He is scum. He is the scum of the earth. The lowest form of humanity, our society can produce.
GLENN: Now, Wait a minute. He said after he was there, he was just listening. And he just couldn't take it anymore.
STU: Oh, really? That's what happened, huh? That's interesting. Because everyone seems to notice, that this was obviously staged. From the beginning. And I go back to what happened before this. We don't know exactly. Maybe we'll learn in the coming days. But let me translate the series of events that led up to this moment. Beto O'Rourke.
GLENN: Was there in -- listening to the whole thing.
STU: No. He was not. Let's go back before that. Let's go back to the meeting, that Beto O'Rourke had with his staff. And at some point, and I'll translate it. Because I don't have the exact language. But I'll tell you exactly what was said in the meeting.
STU: It was Beto O'Rourke saying, hey. How exactly can we take advantage of all of these dead children?
STU: And turn it around, so it's good for us. How do we raise money off the bodies of these dead children?
GLENN: Hold on just a second.
GLENN: Hold on just a second. You don't have a transcript. You don't know that Beto O'Rourke said that. And I have to tell you, Stu, I don't think he's smart enough to come up. That had to be someone else in the room. And he went, yeah.
STU: Maybe you're right. Maybe you're right. But I don't know who said it. All I know is that this was obviously planned. Clearly planned. And we can go through -- yeah. Even CBS News pointed it out. Blatantly a staged event. And this guy, because he wants more power and more money, decided that this event was about him. He wanted to make the death of 19 children and two teachers, about Beto O'Rourke, because he's human scum. He is the worst form of life imaginable on this earth.
GLENN: These things might work in New York.
STU: Yeah. Good luck with it.
GLENN: Or Washington or Delaware. It's not going to work here. You know, the only one that had the other opinion of, hey, maybe gun control is Matthew McConaughey. And he seemed like a decent. I disagreed with him. But he was a decent human being about it.
STU: Yeah. Totally. He obviously doesn't know that much about the details of the issues. But he, I think comes from a good place. Here's a guy, Matthew McConaughey's statement.
Was like, hey, gosh. How do we stop this? We need to do something. All right. That's not an educated viewpoint on this. All right?
Everybody posted on social media. If you know anything about these topics. The -- the argument of, well, why don't we do something, is just vapid? Right?
It's just a giant, shallow, empty vessel of a view. It's a stand-in for intellect.
But Beto O'Rourke is a totally different issue. He is the worst. All he did was try to get attention. And, you know what, his next job, which, by the way, will not be governor of the state of Texas. His next job at MSNBC or whatever. This crap will help him.
And that's all this is about him for him. He's pathetic.
GLENN: Again, again. MSNBC, I -- I mean, he is going to be behind a microphone. But I think it's going to be. Hi, welcome to McDonald's. May I take your order, please?
STU: If he's lucky.
GLENN: Would you like fries with that?
STU: Well, and the thing is too, look, this is a very desperate man in a very desperate position doing very desperate things.
GLENN: It's disgusting.
STU: And if you want to get past how revolting a human being you must be to think this is appropriate, if you want to get past that for a second, and you get to the point of just political strategy. You can make the argument, right? He is so -- his -- his hill he's climbing is so far up his -- so steep, that maybe ridiculous stunts and pathetic things like this is the right thing to do. Maybe you goad Greg Abbott into making a mistake. And saying something really bad. When he walks out.
You know, unfortunately, for him, you left Greg Abbott and Dan Patrick with the microphones. So you're getting taken out of the room. Where no one can hear you blab about your nonsense. And they have the microphones. And they handled it really, really well.
GLENN: Well, well.
STU: And I honestly -- if Greg Abbott did what that mayor did, it would have been bad. But the fact that the mayor did it. You know, that guy was not standing up for this nonsense. He didn't want this to be about politics. This is his freaking city. And he sat there with just righteous indignation. And, man, I felt for him.
And I thought Abbott and Patrick handled it really well. And the mayor did too. We bleeped it out. He just calls him an A-hole from the -- and that's exactly what needed to happen.
GLENN: That's exactly who he is.
GLENN: By the way, why didn't the police -- why didn't the police see it.
I mean, BLM came out yesterday, against the racist police. And how they -- how did they know? Why didn't they stop this kid?
And, you know, you're right. You had all kinds of warnings, that this would be a bad kid, right?
All kinds of warnings. Reuters is reporting, some really disturbing writing. One day, I'm going to quote.
One day, I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles.
This is happy. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dream. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerating down on to the floor, until I hear the crashing of two children on the hood.
Then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head. Right?
Dangerous. Right? Nothing good is going to come of this.
According to Reuters, those are the teenage writings of Beto O'Rourke.
STU: Oh, my God. Really?
GLENN: Yep. In writings that Reuters say still exist online, O'Rourke reportedly fantasized about toppling the government, but doubted that the masses would support such a radical move at this time. Then he also wrote about murdering children, by running over them with his car.
STU: This is -- this is the ultimate red flag for the red flag law.
GLENN: Exactly right. Exactly right. I'm glad that he's against guns. The state of Texas should be very aware and not allow him to buy any guns.
STU: Oh, my gosh.
GLENN: Because of this. This guy -- this guy. And his righteous indignation. Give it a rest, bud. Give it a rest.
All right. Back in just a second with -- with more. First, let me tell you about Patriot Mobile. Just because the Biden administration paused the creation of the disinformation board, the fight is not over.
They haven't -- all they're doing is looking into, who was providing the disinformation?
And now they have Chertoff running it. The former Department of Homeland Security chief.
By the way, who told me in an interview in 2005, I was talking to him, we were off the air. And I said, what's your cell phone?
And he said, cell phone? I don't have a cell phone. I said, what do you mean you don't have a cell phone?
He said, Glenn, if people -- this is 2005. If people knew how easily it was to get and listen and know everything about a person, because of their cell phone. Nobody in America would have one.
STU: Hmm. I remembered that.
GLENN: You remember that?
STU: I remember that moment.
STU: And gosh, how accurate was that?
GLENN: Oh, sure. Sure. I don't have a cell phone.
I said, how do you communicate with people? The old-fashioned way. Memos.
Oh. Okay. All right.
Now I feel really stupid. Because you're the guy in charge of watching everybody. Now they're going to put him in charge of the -- the disinformation board. So that's going to go well. The guy who did the Patriot Act, but I digress.
