Beto O’Rourke won our hearts (and almost won the votes) when he challenged actual troll Ted Cruz for his Texas senate seat.
He has joined the field of 23 Democrat candidates headed to the primaries next spring.
And though his campaign was off to a slow start, he’s trying to make a comeback by being “relatable” to voters, which is the only explanation we can think of for live-streaming his 17 minute haircut.
O’Rourke took the opportunity to answer some questions.
Some of the questions were talking about his policy if he were to take office, but mostly they were about his… ear hair???

Thank you for this insightful article about democratic candidate ear hair.

O’Rourke is sort of known for live streaming strange mundane activities.
Beto O’Rourke went to the dentist — and brought his Instagram followers with him https://t.co/wP4zH10ruJ

Nobody is really sure how he was supposed to answer questions at the dentist, with hands in his mouth and all, but honestly, another giant question is, why???
Well good for him. At least he can afford to go to the dentist while American citizens can not even afford health care

@BetoORourke We don’t need a Kardashian presidential campaign. Get serious or move on.

This isn’t going to be helpful in 2020.

He’d be a great highschool teacher but not a president.

Just with the nation needs. The self-absorbed presidential candidate who thinks were interested in his trips to the dentist office and his ear hair. What’s next we be sending us pictures of what he had for lunch? #SoOverBeto https://t.co/rwX2ySIHdE

With the competition stiff and more liberal candidates polling ahead of candidates like O’Rourke, his political life is in trouble if he continues to livestream mundane activities, thereby pushing his voter base further and further away.
