Beto O’Rourke might have overshared with his progressive supporters, going so far as to livestream his trip to the dentist. The Free Beacon reports:
Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke disgusted and confused commentators on both sides of the aisle by posting video to social media of his trip to the dentist.
The move from O’Rourke, often floated as a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, comes on the heels of other Democratic stars using social media to speak about politics in a relaxed setting. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D., N.Y.) live-streamed herself making macaroni and cheese in November, while Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) filmed herself drinking a beer at home on New Year’s Eve to mixed reviews.
But the consensus on Twitter was that O’Rourke went too far in filming an Instagram Live video during his dental cleaning Thursday, complete with a view of his gaping maw.
Democrats need to get back in touch with what Americans actually care about – safety and prosperity.
