At the “She The People” forum in Houston, Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke struggled to reach the minorities and women present.
MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson commented on their performance.
“But not so much for Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke who both got a little less than warm reception from the roughly 1,500 black, Latino, Asian, Native American, Arab American women in the room, with Sanders at one point even getting heckled,”
Hecklers practically drowned out what Sanders had to say, to the point that he had to raise his voice to be heard.
“I actually was at the march on Washington with Dr. King back in 1963. Sanders then almost yelled, “Black women will be an integral part of what our campaign and what our administration is about.”
“Why should women of color choose you?” O’Rourke was asked.
So…” O’Rourke stumbled. The crowd quickly took to laughing at his inability to quickly answer.

“Moderators asked the junior senator from Massachusetts what she would say to women nervous about nominating another woman who would lose to a man.
“Here’s how I see this. I’ll tell you how I see it,” Warren said, drawing approval from the audience. “We got a room full of people here who weren’t given anything. We got a room full of people here who had to fight for what they believe in. We have a room full of people here who had to reach down deep, no matter how hard it was, no matter how scary it looked. They found what they needed to find and they brought it up and they took care of the people they loved.”
It looks like Dem Frontrunner Bernie Sanders and trailing Beto O’Rourke may have trouble connecting to females and minorities. Does this mean Trump will be facing off with Fauxcahontas or the Gun Grabbing Kamala Harris?
