LETTER: Train wreck adds new car

The Democratic train wreck otherwise known as the list of hopeful candidates just added Beto O’Rourke to the list. My bet is on an east-meets-west ticket, Crazy Joe Biden for president and Betito for VP.

Biden, who once wished he could take Trump out behind the gym to teach the Donald a lesson in the pugilistic arts, carries a lot of baggage with him. He earned the nickname “handsy” and not for his basketball handling abilities. I’ll let the readership research that one.

O’Rourke wants to give everyone everything: open borders, no college tuition, free medical care, and I almost forgot he’s for legalizing pot — the reason why Willie Nelson played at many of his events.

Both gents are great at selling their ideas of free everything. I guess that would be OK except for the fact that the freeloaders benefit while the middle-income taxpayers foot the bill.

My question to any politician has always been who is going to pay for all the freebies.
