2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is quite the potty mouth. In fact, his foul language actually prompted ABC to issue a warning to candidates about watching their language and abstaining from using profanity.
ABC News producers sent each of the candidates an email regarding the debate set for Thursday. They cited the FCC guidelines for broadcast television. Since the debate will be broadcast live, without a delay, there is no way for them to edit out profane language.
ABC warned the campaigns that the debate will be broadcast without delay meaning they will not have a chance to “edit out foul language.”
This is the first warning of this sort the campaigns have received prior to a debate in the 2020 cycle.

Beto, aka Fredo, has been making waves with his nonchalant dropping of the f-bomb. Not a professional or classy look in the slightest for a politician. His most recent use of profanity was in response to the recent mass shootings. His campaign even released a t-shirt with his statement, “This is f*cked up.”
“The rhetoric that we’ve used, the thoughts and prayers you just referred to, it has done nothing to stop the epidemic of gun violence,” he said while speaking on On CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“To protect our kids, our families, our fellow Americans in public places. At a Walmart in El Paso where 22 were killed. In Sutherland Springs, in a Church. One or two a day all over this country. A hundred killed daily in the United States of America. We’re averaging about 300 mass shootings a year. No other country comes close,” O’Rourke added.
