Democrats are desperately trying to come off as hip, trendy and relatable. They’re dancing, skateboarding, using ~edgy~ language and posting videos during their dentist appointments.
Beto did that.
“So I’m here at the dentist and we’re going to continue our series on the people of the border,” O’Rourke says DURING HIS DENTAL CLEANING.
Please tell me why that’s necessary.
Hint: It’s not. This is another lame attempt at trying to come off as relatable. See fellow humans? I go to the dentist too! I get the little people!
O’Rourke, who represented a district in El Paso, then flips the camera in the direction of his hygienist, Diana, who recounts her time growing up near the U.S.-Mexico border.
Diana, wearing goggles and a mask over her face, said she was born in El Paso and that her father was a U.S. citizen. She added that her mother was born in a small town in Mexico and that she herself was a permanent resident in the U.S. while studying for her American citizenship.
She said people in the area were extremely helpful during her time studying for her citizenship, and that “the entire neighborhood was there when she passed her citizenship test.”
“It was wonderful,” she said, before saying that she wants other Americans to realize that the region near the border is “a beautiful community.”
I feel obliged to tell you all that I sent an unflattering dentist picture to Ashley just YESTERDAY, so Beto needs to get in line. He didn’t do anything special.
You can catch his entire story here.
I wonder what’s next. A juggling act perhaps?
