Can Beto O’Rourke beat Ted Cruz? The team talks about it.

This week on We’re All Gonna Die, the Daily Dot’s internet politics podcast, the team probably has too much fun discussing the Texas GOP’s attempt at attacking Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat seeking to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), in what is becoming an increasingly tight race.

If you forgot, the state’s Republican party Twitter account tried to use an old mugshot of O’Rourke to make fun of him—and a good portion of the internet thought he could get it.

Judging by the Texas GOP’s response to the tweet’s reactions, we’re pretty sure they don’t know what “get it” means. But don’t fret, we also discuss O’Rourke’s chances of winning.

Besides that, the team talks about President Donald Trump having to unblock people on Twitter and the latest developments in the attempts to save net neutrality.

And, of course, our favorite memes of the week.
