Beto O’Rourke’s popularity is high and he remains one of the favorites in a crowded Democratic field to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
O’Rourke is known for a charming and relatable speaking style––it contrasts heavily with the president’s own off-the-cuff manner. He’s measured, even polished.
But there has to be an “evil” version of him, somewhere deep down? Perhaps… a demonic version?
Enter Demon Beto O’Rourke, a parody of the Texas politician from comedian Alex Ptak, who we didn’t know we needed in our lives.
“Hungry Americans are looking for pious blood,” Demon Beto begins before offering a host of other witticisms, including:
- “Down in Texas, when we say ‘way down south,’ we mean ‘in hell.’ We mean ‘in the pit of hell.'”
- “Cerberus is my friend! He’s a dog! He has three heads!”
- “Being jealous: That’s something we could do on a government level.”
Some people are a little particular…
Unless he howls at the moon and introduces the 3D House of Pancakes, count me out.

i can't even tell if this is trying to criticize something, or what it's criticizing, or how, but whatever the case it's pretty funny

One person had the perfect idea:
Great idea Alex.suggest you take it the next step: Get together a group of your friends, hire a dive bar for a couple hours and get up on a table. Also, get a better devil outfit. #Beto2020

Why is it perfect?
Because Beto stands on stuff. He stands on stuff a lot, in case you haven’t noticed:

We need to get these two together in a room. We’d pay good money to see them square off.
