Whelp, after stating absolutely and unequivocally that he would not, under any circumstances, NOT run for President in 2020, Beto O’Rourke has transitioned.
He now identifies as a Democrat Candidate for President.
Naturally, Vanity Fair provided Beto with the platform from which to announce his transition.
Hey, it worked for Bruce Jenner and Bradley Manning. So why not?
Okay, to be fair. That’s not the real Vanity Fair cover.
But, as you can see, Annie Leibovitz took some liberties with her subject here.
Because if this was really Robert Francis O’Rourke in all his glory, the image would look more like this:
Here’s Beto’s campaign announcement:

“I’m not looking at 2020. In fact, I’m completely ruling that out. Not going to do that… Win or lose, I’m not running in 2020… The answer is no.” pic.twitter.com/oTN4BLpdXZ
I think that’s the wrong video.
Okay, here it is.
I am running to serve you as the next president. The challenges we face are the greatest in living memory. No one person can meet them on their own. Only this country can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us. Say you’re in: https://t.co/EKLdkVET2u pic.twitter.com/lainXyvG2n— Beto O’Rourke (@BetoORourke) March 14, 2019
I don’t know about you, but I’m stunned to learn there is slavery in these United States of America.
And what’s with the flapping arm? I gotta tell you, Beto is giving Kung-Fu Kasich a run for his money.
In the interests of full disclosure, I couldn’t make it through the whole thing. His repetitive pointing and rote delivery was so agonizing, I had to stop it. If you succeeded in watching all three-plus minutes of Beto-Arm, my hat’s off to you.
But the media is thrilled that Beto is transitioning. They found their Obama 2.0 and boy, howdy, are they quivering with orgasmic delight.
There’s just one enormous problem.
This isn’t 2007. It’s 2019. And the voters’ relationship with the news media is completely different today.
We are living the aftermath of a news media that sold its credibility to slobber all over the unknown Freshman Senator from Illinois.
And more importantly, we’re living in the middle of that same media jettisoning the last vestiges of journalistic integrity as they attempt to take out the duly-elected President of the United States.
In short, we don’t trust them.
Having the undying love, devotion and “Tiger Beat” coverage from these garbage people isn’t going to work out for Beto the way it did for the “clean, articulate” Obama.
On top of that, the far-Left base of the Democrat Party is too invested in “Intersectional Identity Politics.” They will be none too happy about a rich, cis white male getting all that media love.
I’ll close with this clever mash-up because, well, it’s priceless.
