America’s favorite fake Latino…
No… this isn’t from The Onion nor The Babylon Bee. Perhaps proving that even a drowning man will grasp at swords, ex-congressman and current contender for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, Robert Francis O’Rourke is making a rather desperate clutch at relevancy.
Seeing his popularity in election polls hovering in the high decimal points, O’Rourke obviously isn’t content with his recent vow to turn local, state, and federal LEOs (Law Enforcement Organizations) into his own personal Geheime Staatspolizei.
For those that may have missed it, O’Rourke openly stated that if elected president, he would at gunpoint, enforce a federal “buyback” program of certain legally purchased firearms. Specifically, AR-15s and AK-47s.
On a personal note, I don’t recall ever buying any of my weapons from the government. Hence, that kind of blows Beto’s “buyback” scheme out of the water.

But back to the topic at hand.
As (hilariously) noted by Matt Margolis of PJMedia.com;
Not to be outdone by Cory Booker’s “women are people” moment in the last debate, Beto O’Rourke decided to virtue signal his pro-woman accolades on Saturday by tweeting that “women across America don’t have access to the period products they need,” and since it is #NationalPeriodDay (who knew that was a thing?), that “men need to join women in demanding real change.” Beto wants “real change” and identifies as a man for the moment (at least until he needs a Hail Mary for his campaign) and he’s announced his support for the Menstrual Equity Act.
And yes, it appears that the Menstrual Equity Act is a real thing. H.R. 1882, otherwise known as the Menstrual Equity For All Act of 2019. Apparently Beto thinks women across America have never heard of a pharmacy. Oh but wait, this absurd legislation isn’t just for women! According to GovTrack, this legislation will “increase the availability and affordability of menstrual hygiene products for individuals with limited access, and for other purposes.”
Individuals. Because men have periods too! Duh!
In detention centers and in prisons, in big cities and small towns, women across America don’t have access to the period products they need. On #NationalPeriodDay, men need to join women in demanding real change—which is why I’m supporting the Menstrual Equity Act.
