New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s facial expression when former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke began speaking Spanish at one point during the first 2020 Democratic debate Wednesday night went viral online.
The moment occurred at the start of the debate when O’Rourke was asked whether he would support a 70 percent tax rate on Americans making more than $10 million annually.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This economy has got to work for everyone,” O’Rourke began in English for his first response of the night, “and right now we know that it isn’t.”
“It’s going to take all of us coming together to make sure that it does,” he added, before sharing his response in Spanish.
Booker’s facial expression was priceless (see pictures below).
Booker had his chance to showcase his own heavily accented Spanish later (video below), as detailed in the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Sen. Cory Booker became the second 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to use his Spanish skills in the first debate.
“The situation right now is unacceptable. This president has attacked, has demonized immigrants. It’s unacceptable. I’m going to change that,” the New Jersey senator said in Spanish about what he would do on his first day in the White House.
Time politics reporter Phil Elliot tweeted that there were “lots of puzzled looks among Spanish-language media in the file center.”
Twitter had a lot of fun with the use of Spanish by the two candidates. Examples follow.
