Really, Beto O’Rourke? Do we really need to see an extreme closeup of your dental hygienist cleaning your teeth?
The former El Paso, Texas, congressman and failed U.S. Senate candidate thought it would be worthwhile to talk to his hygienist about living on the U.S.-Mexico border. So he engaged her — while she’s scrubbing his pearly whites!
You can see the picture here.
The Democrat is pondering whether to run for president in 2020. Many pundits believe he’s going to do it, that he’s going to parlay the rock-star status he acquired while losing the U.S. Senate race in Texas narrowly to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz.
Videos of his young children and his wife are fine. I get that. It’s standard political “photo op” stuff.
However, I find it a bit off-putting that Beto O’Rourke would post an Instagram picture of his teeth-cleaning. Hey, talk to the hygienist. Get her views on living in El Paso. Talk to her, grownup to grownup.
No need to show us this dental procedure. We know how it goes.
Pretty weird, Beto.
