Why The Right Sees Red Over Beto’s Move + World Food Championship

Rise and shine, Dallas! It’s Sunday, July 25.

Today’s Headlines: Why should we call him “Beto” when his name is Robert? That’s just one of the bones conservatives have to pick when it comes to Beto O’Rourke. Should the press refer then to the ex-president as “Drumpf,” which is his ancestral name? Find out why the right sees red over O’Rourke’s latest move.

Next, did someone intentionally open gas access points to blow up a house in Plano last Monday? Investigators originally judged the explosion to be the result of a gas leak. Now they’re saying it might have been intentional. We cut through the hearsay to get to what’s actual and factual.

And, finally: The good news is that The World Food Championships are coming to Dallas’ Fair Park this fall. The bad news is that, with all those talented chefs cooking all those amazing dishes, you’re gonna need the stretchy pants.

First, today’s weather: Humid throughout the day. High: 98, low: 77.
