"Ah, so", Beto O'Rourke began a series of Instagram videos Thursday morning, "I'm here at the dentist".
With dental tools jammed into either side of his mouth, O'Rourke introduced his dental hygienist as part of his Instagram story "series" on "people of the border".
Although people were surprised to see the unflattering clip at first, O'Rourke quickly flipped the camera to his dental hygienist, Diana, who spoke about growing up in El Paso with a mother from Mexico and a father from the United States.
You might say Beto O'Rourke is trying to sink his teeth into to the border issue. We all support each other. It's not what everybody else thinks badly about us. "It's actually a wonderful place to live and grow up".
While President Trump visited the southern border Thursday, Democratic darling Beto O'Rourke visited the dentist - posting a freaky video showing him getting a mouth-wide-open cleaning in order to highlight the story of his dental hygienist's upbringing in El Paso. O'Rourke is unlikely to decide before February, two sources close to him recently told CNN.
O'Rourke, who rocketed to national prominence following a failed bid to unseat incumbent Sen.
Although it's hard to predict where O'Rourke will take this social media campaign in the future, it's become evident that it's catching on. "And the president's using fear and anecdote to try to instill anxiety and paranoia to build the political will to construct this wall that would cost $30 billion and take private property and cause death and suffering as more asylum seekers are pushed to ever-more hostile stretches of the U.S. -Mexico border".
"Um, so I'm here at the dentist and we're going to continue our series on the people of the border".
