Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke speaks Spanish and frequently breaks it out when speaking to Latino audiences, but when he did it in Wednesday’s Democratic Debate, it seemed to send Sen. Corey Booker into a very dark place.
While many other Twitter users discussed the validity of policies, some took a moment to chuckle and make jokes about what became the first meme of the Democratic debate.

everyone: *makes fun of Booker's face at Beto speaking Spanish*
me: *nervously remembers Buttigieg speaks "a measure" of 7 languages and also a lot of English*

When Beto got up there and started answering in Spanish, they showed Elizabeth Warren and Corey Booker in the background, and the look on Corey’s face is priceless. It say “bro what the f**k are you talkin about??”😂😂😂😂

Mass rallies, crazy decisions, grandiose posturing: This is what living in a dictatorship feels like
Another week of shaking our heads and wondering how much longer we can survive him. Yet again, Donald Trump overwhelmed practically everything with the force of his obscene personality, running his mouth and his thumbs even while he was failing to run the country in any sort of conventional sense. He doesn’t actually do anything, but he dominates everything. Living in America today is like being trapped in a room with him — no doors, no windows, no exits, only Trump and the sound of Trump and the hideous image of Trump, all day, every day, for day after day after day.

Rick Wilson warns ‘Donald Trump is not a well man’ and is now ‘speaking in tongues’
President Donald Trump is mentally unwell, a top strategist explained on MSNBC on Thursday.
"A few 24 hours after a sustained presidential performance that even by Donald Trump’s standard qualified as unhinged and unnerving, the world is reeling and offering a collective judgment of omg and wtf. That is a concise summary of this morning’s headlines," anchor John Heilemann reported.
"To help you grasp the full scope of the presidential meltdown, we offer you this," he said, introducing a clip of Trump.
"This string of absurdities might seem mildly funny at times but to Trump’s own former aides, what they witnessed in recent days crossed the threshold from amusing to alarming," he explained.
Ex-Trump official bashes White House ‘apologists’ who haven’t quit yet: ‘There’s not much hope for them’
A report on the silence coming from first daughter Ivanka Trump and her White House advisor husband Jared Kushner after Donald Trump attacked American Jews turned to the future of White House aides who are either complicit in the president's policies or stand idly by as he lurches from controversy to controversy.
In an interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar, former Trump adviser J.W. Verret pointed out there are still some "adults in the room" with Trump, but CNN's Kaitlan Collins first pointed out that -- as of late -- Ivanka and Kushner are not among them.
"This fits a pattern that we've seen from Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump at times during times when the administration tried to repeal parts of Obamacare, and of course, the big one the president has made about Jewish people who are supporting Democrats," Collins explained. "Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are both Orthodox Jews. They've been involved with the president on many things. but neither of them have said anything publicly about the president's comments. and when we asked the white house have they been advising the president privately on this, the White House did not get back to us."
