Why Is Beto O’Rourke Livestreaming His Haircut?

Beto O’Rourke livestreamed his haircut on Wednesday. The livestream was apart of the former Texas Congressman’s plans to reboot his flat-lining presidential campaign.

From Fox News:

It might be time for Beto to cut back on how much he shares with fans.

O’Rourke, fresh off an apology-filled reboot of his 2020 campaign on “The View” in which he lamented his initial display of “privilege,” posted a bizarre video on his Facebook page.

In the video, Beto is seen getting a haircut and an apparent massage from a barber named “Manuel.”

The video showed him speaking in Spanish with Manuel along with another man who entered the shop, which was named “Chemas.” His livestream came just a day after he expressed regret over a Vanity Fair cover which, he said, made him seem elitist and reinforced a “perception of privilege.”

Awkwardly, at one point in the livestream another customer strolled into the barbershop and said he recognized O’Rourke, but did not know who he was. The Texas Democrat explained to the man he is running for president.

The former Congressman also took questions from viewers during the stream, before eventually discussing his education reform platform.

If you’re interested in watching the video, here it is:



I guess by livestreaming this haircut and speaking Spanish, this must be his way of seeming relatable or something. Beto O’Rourke is trying to show that he’s down with the little people.

Even without this weird video, it’s clear that Beta O’Rourke is not a serious presidential candidate. He is a mid-life crisis running for president.

Even without his weird campaign, it’s hard to see what the argument is for him. He lost last year to easily the most unlikable U.S. Senator in the country, Ted Cruz and that was even after outspending him 3 to 1.

In addition, Beta was not exactly the most accomplished member of the U.S. House in his short career. At the end of the day, he had no serious credentials to base his presidential campaign on.

O’Rourke is running a weird vanity project that is masquerading as a presidential campaign. The only thing that appears certain is that it will be a complete failure.
