Beto O’Rourke apologized Friday night for writings the former Texas representative made as a teenager describing fantasies about running over children with a vehicle.

“I’m mortified to read it now, incredibly embarrassed, but I have to take ownership of my words,” the Democratic presidential candidate said during a taping of the “Political Party Live” podcast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “Whatever my intention was as a teenager doesn’t matter, I have to look long and hard at my actions, at the language I have used, and I have to constantly try to do better.”

His comments come after a report Friday revealed O’Rourke wrote prose when he was a teenager describing a scenario in which he would accelerate a car into a group of children while hearing them scream. The report also showed he was a secret member of a hacking group called the “Cult of the Dead Cow,” which focused on showing people how to hack Microsoft computers.

“It’s not anything I’m proud of today, and I mean, that’s — that’s the long and short of it,” he said. “All I can do is my best, which is what I’m trying to do. I can’t control anything I’ve done in the past. I can only control what I do going forward and what I plan to do is give this my best.”

Reports show O’Rourke apparently might have also written more embarrassing poetry, with a line in one poem called “The Song of the Cow” stating “Wax my ass, scrub my balls. The Cow has risen, Provide Milk” from 1988 under the now-exposed pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord.”

He launched his 2020 presidential campaign Thursday.

  1. Dr Duude

    Well, it was a fantasy. What with that lets give him the power to make his fantasies come true………oh, wait….

  2. Robert

    One really sick pup! Uncontrollablely impulsive, he acts on a whim with no forethought and proceeds with reckless abandon. He should fizzle out once the opening bubbles dissipate.

  3. Betty

    Have we stepped back and really looked at what the Democratic party has offered to the American people to lead the country. Socialists, Prevents, Muslims and a fantasizing killer of children, that’s just what’s been in the news this week.

  4. James Forsythe

    Beto is crazy as Hell! It would take a real fool to vote for him or his kind in any election. Unfortunately, he is your typical Democrat.

    1. Robert

      And, there are millions of real fools called democrats.

  5. Vince

    Somebody should ask Beto if he tortured puppies and cats when he was a kid, and pulled the wings off of Monarch Butter flies..I knew a kid who did those things and He ended up in a mental Institution, He didn’t become President Of The USA…

  6. Joanne Schroeder

    And now here we have yet another Democrat who is apologizing for something he did or said years ago. Question… Why is it ok that this man is going to be forgiven, and put up on a pedestal for what he said, but if any Republican, and it has happened and will happen again, is demonized beyond belief, when they do the same thing?

  7. not2day

    Decadence at it’s finest from a DEMOCRAT candidate for the presidency. Ya gotta love it.

    1. Contre Viole 32

      And when he used the “F” word on national TV after he lost last year to Cruz you can bet the democrats (and the hollywood trash crowd) thought that was both cute and brilliant!
      That alone would indicate that he’s qualified to be president among his constituents!
      Perhaps he should consider skateboarding on stage to debate with the other candidates?

  8. Lee

    An apology is nice, but what kind of mind thinks up pure evil? Killing with joy is evil. And worse, to dream it joyfully and publish it, this is very frightening. Running for President?
