Beto O’Rourke, the 2020 presidential candidate and former El Paso congressman, livestreamed his haircut Wednesday, prompting widespread mockery by social media users.
O’Rourke’s fresh cut came as he sought to retool his flagging White House bid and appeared to mark a return to his 2018 Senate campaigning style where he would regularly livestream himself doing various everyday tasks like driving.
The Washington Examiner Reports:
Between his Senate run and presidential announcement, O’Rourke, 46, livestreamed a trip to the dentist.

Beto O’Rourke is livestreaming his haircut. At one point, he notes that his earhair is getting trimmed. Something he says needs to be done as you get older. pic.twitter.com/um040cwpTU

Man enters El Paso barbershop, sees @BetoORourke getting haircut. Introduces himself as Robert.
Beto: “Robert – I’m Robert, too. They call me Beto.”
Robert: “Nice to meet you, Beto. You – you’re the what is it, the guy on TV. Is it the governor? Mayor?”
