Republican hero Rep. Dan Crenshaw ripped Democrat Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, after the former Democratic congressman streamed his most recent dentist visit.
The cringeworthy video features O’Rourke, mouth agape, tying to hold a conversation while getting his teeth cleaned. The awkward clip is uncomfortable just to watch.
Speaking to the Washington Examiner, a baffled Crenshaw didn’t mince words when he responded to the video with, “No, guys, it’s just not — don’t do that …”
Crenshaw reasoned that, “They’re trying to be like AOC,” meaning Democratic Rep from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “[Ocasio-Cortez] kind of gets it,” he added. “She kind of understands how to do that.”
While Crenshaw may have begrudgingly admitted that AOC has garnered a following through social media, he called out O’Rouke for the shameful attempt at getting attention.
“If you get your teeth cleaned on Instagram live, it shows that you’re just out of touch,” Crenshaw said. “That doesn’t make you relatable or cool. It just makes you weird.”
