Both 2020 Candidates Cory Booker and Beto clearly set out to show off their Spanish skills during last night’s DNC debate.
Social media users instantly noticed Beto’s unhappy face after Beto stole his thunder by speaking Spanish first.

What’s even worse is social media users panned Booker’s Spanish as even worse than Beto’s.
