Beto O’Rourke Ate Dirt

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Former Texas Democrat Representative and 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke ate dirt for what he believes is its “regenerative powers.”

The revelation about the incident came from his wife Amy during an exclusive interview with the couple in The Washington Post.

According to Amy, Beto was feeling down after losing the Texas Senate race and took a trip alone to clear his head.

Beto, on the other hand, more prone to higher highs and lower lows, was in a “funk.” In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers. (He brought some home for the family to eat, too.)

Eating dirt, it seems, is part of O’Rourke’s quirky personality.

He likes to do things differently, such as jumping on countertops during campaign speeches and the odd approach is apparently appealing.

On policy matters, O’Rourke recently criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu describing him as a backer of “racists.”

The comment came in regard to what O’Rourke feels are poor leaders trying to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Consistent with his comments about Netanyahu, O’Rourke is one of a number of 2020 Democrats running for president that is not going to attend the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference (AIPAC) next week in Washington, D.C.

O’Rourke is generating a lot of positive news coverage from the media and financial support from Democrats.

On his first day of fundraising, he collected just over $6 million.
