Beto O'Rourke Got Roasted On Twitter For Speaking Spanish Last Night

Last night was the First Democratic Debate, featuring Beto O'Rourke, Bill Deblasio, Julián Castro, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Jay Inslee, John Delaney, and Tim Ryan. While the first debates tend to say a whole lot of nothing about who will win the favor of the people, Beto O'Rourke was quick shoo-in for most meme-able candidate. At the very beginning of the debate, O'Rourke was asked a question about the economy, and he opted to give a non-answer in both English and Spanish. The move puzzled his opponents (Namely Booker and Warren) and viewers alike. It didn't take long for people on Twitter to roast the Texan's his attempt at a bilingual answer. Here are some of our favorite spicy jabs.
