A somber Beto O’Rourke is attempting to emote his way into voters’ hearts ahead of the 2020 election. During an appearance on “The View,” he relaunched “Beto 2020,” apologizing for his initial “privileged” campaign launch through Vanity Fair glamour shots. He also said of the initial misfire, “I think it reinforces that perception of privilege and that headline that said I was born to be in this, in the article I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling was in public service. No one is born to be President of the United States of America, least of all me.” Quick, someone phone Barack Obama…Beto just committed political sacrilege.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
Former Vice President Joe Biden is not the only 2020 candidate currently on an apology tour. Now, supposedly in an attempt to “reintroduce” his failing campaign, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) went on “The View” Tuesday to apologize for his “privileged” campaign launch by posing for that ridiculous Vanity Fair cover that said he was “born to be in it.”
“You did a Vanity Fair cover to announce your campaign and you said you were, quote, ‘born to be in it,'” conservative co-host Meghan McCain pressed O’Rourke, according to The Daily Beast. “You went across the country alone on a road trip after you lost your election and you said you, quote, sometimes help raise your kids.”
“These are things in my mind that a female candidate wouldn’t be able to get away with,” McCain added.
