Ordinarily I wouldn’t consider video of Beto O’Rourke changing a tire news, but the image is just the perfect analogy for his presidential campaign; he started out riding high, but somewhere along the way, someone let the air out of his tires, and now he’s trying to build that momentum again.

O'Rourke prepares for the second reset of his campaign. It's August. The first one was in May. He launched the campaign in March.



Can you imagine being a primary candidate sitting near 2% in the polls who holds no public office and announcing that you'll be delivering a "major address to the nation"?

Just a regular guy changing a tire. While someone films it. And makes it go viral on the internet.

I like this idea that he stopped campaigning in the wake of the El Paso shooting. He just shifted from campaign rallies to network news interviews. The guy isn't even the current Congressional representative and he was all over the place using the shooting to prop up his failing campaign.

He took a break from campaigning because a white supremacist massacred 22 innocent people in his town. His major address is related and is being given in El Paso.

How fucking tone deaf can you be
