Presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke will visit Northeast Ohio Monday, sources say

"I want to get your reaction to Beto O'Rourke's announcement that he's running for president", CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked the OH senator. "I said, 'Is he insane or is that just the way he acts?'"

"It depends on what kind of experience you're looking for", O'Rourke responded, insisting he has experience "hiring people" and "creating jobs" and "developing the economy of the community in which I live".

Former Vice President Joe Biden is the only major contender still on the sidelines and has suggested he could remain there for several more weeks.

She said, "He's not too far left, as some people are, and I think he could appeal to a lot of voters". Now, in a series of interviews, CDC members have acknowledged O'Rourke as one of their own.

Asked on Thursday to respond to Trump's comments on his hand movements, O'Rourke declined.

O'Rourke is holding a Texas kickoff of his presidential campaign March 30 in El Paso.

That said, Noah admitted that Trump is quite literally the last person on earth who should be mocking someone for their hand gestures.


The show cut to a split-screen of the two men, overlaid with a graphic of an old-school video game.

Beto O'Rourke, a former Democratic congressman from Texas and now presidential candidate, was a member of the Cult of the Dead Cow, one of America's earliest influential hacking groups.

"Hi, I'm Beto O'Rourke, and I'm excited", Fallon as O'Rourke said, moving his arms erratically.

And responding to Trump's criticism, O'Rourke said: "I really do think we all want to get past the pettiness, the personal attacks". O'Rourke appeared to be sitting in his living room with his wife Amy. A few long-shot candidates, most notably Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, may also still get in before the field is set.

Standing on a counter, removing pieces of clothing and constantly gesticulating, O'Rourke's hand movements were seized upon as remarkable if not downright odd and immediately headed into internet-meme territory. Others suggested the politician had picked up public speaking tips from someone Italian.

"I have nothing to say to that", he told CNN. "I think it's important to have people that are running from different parts of the country".
