It's a busy day for identity politics hit pieces on 2020 candidates.
There was the piece accusing Senator Kamala Harris of being insufficiently Black Lives Matter. And this CNN screed accusing Beto O'Rourke of white privilege.
Beto's excellent adventure drips with white male privilege
As opposed to Andrew Gillium stumbling around the place. Or Stacey Abrams trying to get into the race based on ????
Imagine this: A 46-year-old former congresswoman and mother of three, who just lost a Senate bid to one of the most despised incumbents, sets off on a road trip adventure to clear her head.
She instagrams part of her trip to the dentist. She gives a two-hour interview to The Washington Post where she shows no real knowledge of policy.
Like a first-year college student, she pontificates on whether the Constitution is still a thing that matters after all these many years.
This is Beto O'Rourke's navel-gazing, self-involved, rollout of a possible rollout of a possible presidential campaign. Oprah Winfrey's couch is next.
This could never, ever be a woman.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez would beg to differ.
Beto isn't a flake because he's white. He's a flake because he's an entitled lefty hipster candidate. There are a bunch of those around. Like Cortez. They have minimal knowledge and a ridiculously inflated ego based on nothing apparent to anyone else.
Like a guy named Barack Obama who spends half his time on social media building his brand while every single sophomoric utterance is treated as significant.
Beto is just following in Barack's footsteps.
