Failed senate candidate and current Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, after getting a ton of attention, has fallen a bit in the polls.
He was the media’s darling for a hot minute but now it appears to be Pete Buttigieg and even that seems to be changing a bit.
Regardless, how O’Rourke kicked off his campaign rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. That’s because he was featured on a “Vanity Fair” cover, which said he “was born to do it.” Of course, it was in reference to running for the presidency.
4. @MeghanMcCain asks Beto if he can get away with stuff like "I'm just born to be in it," because he's a man.
Beto says "you're right."
He goes on to agree that the Vanity Fair cover as an announcement was a mistake. pic.twitter.com/dFoPdUgraf

In the magazine, he basically says he’s a part time dad, leaving his wife to do heavy lifting when it comes to parenting.
Well, O’Rourke appeared Tuesday on “The View” in which he said he regretted the move, would’ve done it another way and then went a rant on how it showed his privilege.
