Beto O’Rourke, crowned the “coolest dude in America” by the mainstream media, continues to take bizarre behavior to new and unforeseen heights. This time the ex-punk rocker decided he needed to execute the equivalent of dipping in the waters of Lake Minnetonka with Prince, for its “healing powers,” instead opting to ingest magical soil. No surprise here, the Twitter-verse loved it:
The savior of the Democrat Party eats dirt and pranks his wife with baby poop. Beto is “cheese-slid-off-his-cracker crazy.”

Dems say they believe in science. So is eating “Magic Dirt” the kind of science Bob ORourke wants us to embrace? I can think of something else he ought to eat! Beto Admitted To Eating Magic Dirt After Humiliating Loss to Ted Cruz Left Him in a ‘Funk’ https://t.co/mU6eGQ23vJ

The story, covered here by the Western Journal/Conservative Tribune, is every bit as hilarious as one would think or hope it would be. Somewhere, Ted Cruz must be thinking, “I almost lost the Senatorial race to this Democrat in Texas?”
“Buried in recent Washington Post biographical piece about O’Rourke is a bizarre tidbit that should make every American pause and ask a few questions.
Apparently, the man many Democrats think can defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 run also believes that magical dirt is a big part of success.
We’re not kidding. After O’Rourke lost his Senate race to Cruz — disappointing liberals who donated a whopping $70 million in the process — he left his family behind to lick his wounds on a soul-searching journey … one that included swallowing dirt.
‘Beto … was in a “funk.”‘ The Washington Post wrote. ‘In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers.’
Uh, what? This is a man who wants to be the president of the United States next year. But it gets even weirder.
‘He brought some home for the family to eat, too,’ The Post continued.
Hey, wouldn’t want that magical ‘regenerative’ dirt go to waste!”
Texans should be celebrating the fact that this idiot is not representing their state for the next five years. What’s really disheartening about Beto-mania is that he is a fundraiser extraordinaire, reportedly posting the largest single-day money grab out of all of the 2020 Democrat hopefuls. Yahoo covered this story:
“Beto O’Rourke, a former Texas Congressman and unsuccessful challenger to Sen. Ted Cruz, said this week he had raised more than $6 million in the single day after announcing his presidential campaign — topping all of his Democratic opponents so far, including Sen. Bernie Sanders.
O’Rourke, 46, got $6,136,736 in online donations in the 24 hours since he launched his 2020 bid on Thursday, his campaign said, according to NBC News, The New York Times and The Washington Post.”
Beto is going to presumably have trouble threading the needle between Democrat candidates who will be running beyond left field and those who will attempt to appeal to any shred of moderateness left in the Party of AOC. If part of his shtick is going to be that he’s so down to earth that he literally eats the earth, I think it’s safe to say no amount of fundraising is likely to push good ole Robert over the edge in the primary election.
Yet, if the Sanderses and Harrises of the Democratic Party cannot shut down Beto-mania, it would be hilarious to speculate what nickname President Trump would bestow upon the hipster-in-chief.
The man has no actual articulated stance on any issue. He seems to take the “let’s hear all sides” approach to every question of policy asked of him, while managing to evade actually pigeonholing himself into vomiting up a half-baked answer. That won’t fly when going up against a bare-knuckle brawl-style debater like Donald Trump. No amount of dirt, mud, or sand (magical or not) will be able to help him on-stage against the Trumpster.
