Democrats did President Donald Trump a favor by picking former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to give the Party’s rebuttal to the president’s joint sessions speech.
The former governor, who was defeated by Republican Matt Bevin, provided a stark contrast to an energetic, charismatic president.
And, apparently, he forgot which party he belongs to.
“I’m a proud Democrat, but first and foremost, I’m a proud Republican,” Beshear said before making a quick save. “And Democrat, and mostly, American.”
But even putting aside that apparent slip, or odd attempt reach across the aisle, social media roasted the choice of Beshear, a 72-year-old who is virtually unknown, to give the rebuttal.
Who in the world picked Steve Beshear to give the #DemocraticResponse? He looks like the leader of the Heaven’s Gate cult.
