Beto O’Rourke Unhappy with His Vanity Fair Cover

Earlier this year, 2020 Democratic presidential contender Beto O’Rourke, Texas, announced his intentions to make a White House run on the cover of Vanity Fair.

Having recently fallen like a stone in early polling, the former Congressman apparently now regrets this decision.

In March, O’Rourke formerly announced his presidential candidacy in a Vanity Fair profile. In the issue, the former Congressman proclaimed he was “born to be” President of the United States.

The 46-year-old’s comments were highly criticized across the internet. According to TheBlaze, during a sit-down with “The View” cast, co-host Meghan McCain inquired if O’Rourke regretted the Vanity Fair Profile due to its harsh reception.

The liberal presidential candidate pinned the blame for the choice on his privilege.

O’Rourke remarked, “There have been things I have been privileged to do in my life that others cannot.”

As examples of this so-called privilege, he provided not being affected by the gender wage gap and more.

The former Congressman maintained his campaign’s purpose is bringing “people together and making sure Democracy works.”

The 2020 Democratic presidential contender admitted regretting the controversial Vanity Fair profile.

He offered that perhaps, it was a mistake.

O’Rourke commented, “Yeah, I think it reinforces that perception of privilege and that headline that said I was, ‘I was born to be in this’ in the article I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling is a public service. No one’s born to be President of the United States of America.”

The recently fledgling candidate revealed that his reason for joining the ladies of “The View” was to reach a larger, national audience.

During the airing of the show, the former Congressman stated this kind of exposure would allow him to “introduce myself to more of the country and also answer questions about why I’m running and how I propose to achieve the vision I’ve laid out.”

Last week, O’Rourke unveiled a controversial plan to help solve racial income inequality.

He proposed redistributing wealth from rich, White Americans to poor African Americans according to TheBlaze.

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate presented his idea during a campaign event in New Hampshire.

Reportedly, the former Congressman was responding to an attendee at the campaign stop who inquired about his plan to address economic disparity.

O’Rourke remarked, “One very obvious opportunity — but it will be insufficient.

When we look at the fact that there’s 10 times the wealth today in white America than there is in black America, and that families have been able to successfully pass on that wealth over time.”

Continuing, the 2020 Democratic presidential contender said, “We know from our history of redlining and excluding African Americans from the ability to build wealth through home purchases, that opportunity does not exist for much of the country.”

He added, “What if in the tax code we did a better job of breaking down that accumulated wealth, of taxing it so it is not producing the greatest income and wealth inequality that we’ve seen in our lifetimes, unseen since the Gilded Age of the 19th century? What if we decided that we would use the proceeds to invest in people, in education?”

When asked why he, a white man, is qualified to pilot “racial healing,” O’Rourke bizarrely commented, “I can choose to do this as a white man, to involve myself in this conversation. I can just as easily choose to back out of it.”

According to the Washington Free Beacon, O’Rourke was asked at a recent campaign event in New Hampshire if he would select “one of the amazing woman candidates” for a running mate if he received the Democratic presidential nomination.

He declared that he would likely choose a female rival for his vice presidential pick or maybe, “some other extraordinary woman who’s not running right now” such as Stacy Abrams.

Earlier this year, Abrams was rumored to be the likely choice for running mate if former Vice President Joe Biden, Democrat – Delaware, wins the Democratic presidential nomination.

Reportedly, Abrams, who refuses to concede she lost the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race to Republican Brian Kemp, refuted the idea.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, “The self-declared governor of Georgia has even left open the possibility of entering the Democratic primary as a presidential candidate, telling the ladies of The View, “I think you don’t run for second place.”

O’Rourke’s shout-out to Abrams wasn’t appreciated by some.

Appearing on an airing of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty said the former Congressman’s remarks were “insulting to Stacey Abrams for, you know, white guys, essentially to get up there and say they want to make her their human shield against, you know, a party that is looking for some kind of diversity.”

Seemingly striking out on the ideological white privilege debate, O’Rourke might need to start explaining how his policies will benefit all Americans regardless of their gender or the color of their skin.
