Man, it must be tough to be a white guy in the Democratic Party running for president.
I’ve even seen Pete Buttigieg, who’s a white married gay man, accused of being “privileged.” Whatever you think of homosexuality or gay marriage, I don’t think it’s particularly easy being gay.
Anyway, this below is painful to watch, as O’Rourke grovels after saying he was “born” to run for president. ” I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling is a public service,” he said.
No he wasn’t. He was saying the same thing Barack Obama said years ago at the outset of he 2008 campaign, when Obama said something to the effect of, “I can play in this league.” He was bragging, full of himself. Not discussing “public service.”
Beto also apologized for being white, for being a man, etc., etc.
I mean, is this worth it? And of course, it begs the inevitable question, If you are privileged, is it fair that you are running for president at all?
