RNC Marks St. Patrick’s Day With Mugshot of Beto O’Rourke in a Leprechaun Hat and ‘Please Drink Responsibly’ Message
by Josh Siegel
The Republican National Committee mocked “noted Irishman” 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke with a St. Patrick’s Day “special message” that drew stern criticism from conservative figures.
In a tweet Sunday, the GOP linked the 46-year-old’s 1998 drunken driving arrest to his Irish heritage.
“On this St. Paddy’s Day, a special message from noted Irishman Robert Francis O’Rourke,” the post said, which featured his mugshot with a leprechaun hat atop his head, along with the message “Please drink responsibly.”
