Beto Streams Haircut and Massage Live, ONE DAY after Condemning “Privilege”


Sinking in the polls, Beto (Robert) O’Rourke is looking for anything and everything that will help him grow a fan base.

Well, many are advising him to share less with the world after this latest PR gaffe.

Right on the heels of lamenting and apologizing for painting an image of “privilege,” which was the focus of his latest appearance on “The View,” Beto live-streamed himself getting a haircut and what looks like a massage day at a barber shop in a simply bizarre post.

In an obvious attempt to reach out to minorities, the video shows him conversing in Spanish with a barber named “Manuel.” This comes just one single day after Beto publicly expressed remorse about his Vanity Fair cover and the associated image of privilege.

This just might not be the best way to look sincere about that apology.

According to 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.

This wasn’t the first time O’Rourke gave voters a glimpse into his day-to-day life, with the 2020 hopeful posting a livestream of a trip to the dentist back in January.

You’d think Beto would’ve learned from the harsh criticism he received from his now-infamous dentist video.

I guess not.

Predictably, the reaction on Twitter was more intense criticism:

Accused of running a vanity campaign? Accused of showing privilege? Gee, I wonder why…
