Not content with stereotyping Hispanic, Black, Native American, Jewish and Islamic voters, on St. Patrick’s day the Grand Old Party adopted the style of their standard bearer Donald Trump and reached out to defame Irish Americans.
“Republican National Committee message about Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke appeared to fail on Sunday after it became the subject of internet mockery.A Sunday tweet from the official @GOP Twitter account seemed to smear both O’Rourke and Irish people as drunks….”

O’Rourke quickly answered.
ABC’s @JTHVerhovek asked Beto O’Rourke in WI if the RNC’s tweet poking fun at O’Rourke’s DUI was “perpetuating a stereotype about Irish people”— O’Rourke said ”We cannot meet this challenge with more partisanship, more pettiness, more meanness, more personal and partisan attacks” pic.twitter.com/huqykXSjDE
