Beto O'Rourke *checks notes* Instagrammed his dentist appointment
Beto O'Rourke posted footage from his dentist appointment to his Instagram Stories on Thursday, including a truly too-close-up clip of him in the dentist's chair. (A screengrab from that clip is probably what you've been seeing on Twitter.)
Most of the Story, though, is an interview with Beto's dental hygienist, Diana, about growing up in El Paso near the U.S.-Mexico border. She tells a story about how her community banded together to help her mother, who is from Mexico, pass her citizenship test — a testament to the strong border communities overlooked and mischaracterized by the GOP.
Instagramming from the dentist was a bizarre choice, though, to say the least. Twitter, which is doing a great and chill job gearing up for 2020, noticed immediately.
Beto did not specify whether he had any cavities, although we presume he did not. Diana is the real star here, though — she's definitely worth a watch.
