Beto O'Rourke on Another Shooting: 'This Is F'd Up'

(CNN/"State of the Union")

Democratic presidential primary candidate Beto O'Rourke dropped more curse words in campaigning against hate and gun violence, repeating "this is F'd up" after the latest Texas mass murder.

"The rhetoric that we've used – the thoughts and prayers just referred to – it has done nothing to stop the epidemic of gun violence," O'Rourke told CNN's "State of the Union." "To protect our kids, our families, our fellow Americans in public places. At a Walmart in El Paso where 22 were killed. In Sutherland Springs, in a church. One or two a day all over this country. A hundred killed daily in the United States of America. We're averaging about 300 mass shootings a year. No other country comes close.

"So yes, this is [bleep] up."

O'Rourke has cursed in media interviews referring to President Donald Trump and took his latest outburst to live TV on CNN with fill-in host Dana Bash, telling her is going to campaign for his agenda "defiantly and strongly."

"If we don’t call it out for what it is, if we're not able to speak clearly, if we're not able to act decisively, then we will continue to have this kind of bloodshed in America," O'Rourke added to Bash. "And I cannot accept that.

"And so we're going to speak as defiantly and as strongly as we can, but we're also going to take action: Universal background checks, red flag laws, and ending the sales of weapons of war and buying those AK-47s and AR-15s back so they cannot be used against our fellow Americans."
