Beto O'Rourke Apologizes For 'Privileged' And 'Elitist' Campaign Launch

Do not apologize for being on "Vanity Fair". Do not apologize for being white.

"Beto stop apologizing. Do not apologize for being in Vanity Fair".

During an appearance on The View on Tuesday, the candidate said he regretted the Vanity Fair cover, in particular his comments about being "born to be in it", and acknowledged that he has a long way to go when it comes to reckoning with his while male privilege.

"I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling was in public service", O'Rourke said Tuesday about the controversial cover quote.

Pixel phone owners: Google may owe you $500
If you did, the settlement will ensure you get the entire payment back in addition to any entitlement for your faulty Pixel phone. Google set aside $7.25 million for the settlement fund - if that's not enough, the money will be distributed on a pro-rata basis.

To shore up his failing poll numbers, Beto has launched a national apology tour in recent days, apologizing to co-hosts of The View for his "privileged" and "elitist" campaign launch. Let me tell you, it's bad advice. "They don't live on Twitter", Scarborough said. Be strong, don't apologize'. At one point, he notes that his earhair is getting trimmed. Ted Cruz in 2018, has failed to separate himself from a crowded Democratic 2020 primary field of over 20 candidates.

After his Senate bid, where O'Rourke had the backing of several high-profile lawmakers and celebrities, including singer Beyonce Knowles, many pushed for him to run for president. O'Rourke said that acknowledging his own privilege was key to addressing the "systematic foundational discrimination" in this country". "And that headline that said I was born to be in this".

Former Vice President Joe Biden is not the only 2020 candidate now on an apology tour. That's what Donald Trump did.

There are now 23 Democrats running to be the party's nomination to take on Trump next year, and there are prospects for several others to join the race in the coming months.
