Perhaps the worst thing a politician can do is pretend to be the opposite of what they are.
That’s one thing I can appreciate about Donald Trump — like Ross Perot, he doesn’t apologize for being a billionaire. His message is, “Hey, I sit on a gold toilet. I know how to succeed. Vote for me and I’ll run America like a successful business.”
So what’s multimillionaire Beto O’Rourke’s strategy? The man who inherited millions and married the sole child of William Sanders — worth $500 million — has seemed intent upon convincing us he’s just a regular tire-changin’, skateboardin’ dude.
‘Cause, you know — that’s who you want running the country: just some guy from the street.
Therefore, the doofus has yelled into the political ether his vow to fight against the wealthy and privileged (here).
Except himself, apparently.
On the other hand, in a way, I guess he has fought against himself — by doing and saying things so ridiculous (like this) that no one would want to vote for him.
The one-percenter’s now at 2% for 2020.
A while back, Beto posted a video to prove he’s just like us. But the clip raised a whole lot of questions:

So if all of you were on the fence for SuperBeto, and if exactly what you needed was to see a guy known for being a guy trying to make himself known for being a guy place a big, fat patty of beef and cheese onto a bun, I give you the Next President of the United States:
