Texas Democrat Beto O'Rourke should never be president after questioning "the validity of the Constitution," Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, said Thursday, per the Washington Examiner.
O'Rourke, whose star rose following a shockingly close loss to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, during the 2018 midterm elections in the red state of Texas, during a recent interview with The Washington Post questioned whether the principles of the U.S. constitution were still relevant.
"I think that's the question of the moment: Does this still work?" O'Rourke said. "Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships . . . and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?"
O'Rourke is weighing a presidential run in 2020 and is set to make a decision soon.
Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, also ripped O'Rourke for posting a live video of his teeth cleaning.
"If you get your teeth cleaned on Instagram live, it shows that you're just out of touch," Crenshaw said. "That doesn't make you relatable or cool. It just makes you weird."
