WATCH: Beto O'Rourke Asks People to Save the Life of a Kitten By Donating

Talk about desperation. Beto O'Rourke asked people to donate $5, $10 or $15 to his failing campaign or else the kitten Miss Whiskers may not be around much longer.

This was said jokingly by O'Rourke (or was it?) while doing an interview on the stage of TribFest. It illustrates just how desperate he is.

TribFest is a three-day annual event sponsored by The Texas Tribune in Austin. It's an uber-liberal event where people like Nancy Pelosi aren't far left enough for them. Her message was met with mild approval as the super-woke crowd was looking for more.

Beto tried to make an impression with the crowd by threatening the life of Miss Whiskers.

“You know, it’s kind of raising the ante or the bar for how we compete for those dollars,” O’Rourke said. “I mean, I could maybe do a Facebook livestream with a kitten and, say, you know, ‘Now, we don’t want anything to happen to the kitten … and so, you know, send your $5 or $10 or $15 in now. And, you know, Miss Whiskers is going to be fine.'”

O'Rourke claimed he was kidding, but he also said, "I can't say it didn't cross my mind."

What a psycho!
