Beto O’Rourke Livestreams his Haircut

You can’t keep a streaming Beto down.

If you didn’t think livestreaming a dental appointment was mundane enough, wait til you see 2020 Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke stream a haircut. All 17 minutes of it.

O’Rourke has begun something of a “reboot” of his campaign, including an appearance on The View where he did a lot of apologizing, and now he’s back to doing what he does best: streaming average, everyday events like they’re political rallies.

Of course, it’s not just about a haircut, not with an election to win. O’Rourke also used the opportunity to talk about all sorts of issues, like the immigration story of his barber, Manuel, who moved to El Paso from Juárez, its neighboring city in Mexico. He also took questions from viewers about things like a potential trip to Puerto Rico and higher education.
