Julián Castro Stands on Booster Box to Appear Taller on Debate Stage


Former U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julián Castro stood on a booster box to appear taller during Thursday’s Democrat debate on ABC.

Castro stood on a booster box to appear taller while debating his fellow 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidates on Thursday night. The former U.S. HUD secretary was standing beside former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (R-TX), who reportedly stands at 6’4″.

The news of Castro’s booster box quickly spread on Twitter by those who were apparently at the debate and had seen it from the stage.

“OH MY GOD IT’S A MASSIVE BOOSTER BOX,” exclaimed Playboy’s Washington Correspondent Alex Thomas via Twitter.
