This story from CNN is about a week old, but we thought we’d revive it in honor of Beto O’Rourke officially kicking off his presidential campaign today in El Paso, Texas, and to give fair warning in case O’Rourke comes to your town to campaign.

As Twitchy has reported, O’Rourke’s fossil-fuel guzzling road trip across America make stops at coffee shops and fast-food joints across the nation, where O’Rourke showed off his nasty habit of walking all over the counter as if it were a stage and not a surface where food is prepared, served, and eaten.

Before you let that be a deal breaker in 2020, though, consider that CNN has confirmed that O’Rourke asks permission before walking all over your food.

Yeah, that’s been on our minds a lot. There was even a Twitter account created called @BetoOnCounters. Eric Bradner reports:

Beto O’Rourke’s habit of standing on things — especially counters — has become a point of public fascination, spawning memes and Twitter accounts in the early days of his campaign.

But don’t worry.

He asks first.

At the Beancounter — like the other stops where O’Rourke has climbed on up — he got permission first. Either O’Rourke or his road manager, Cynthia Cano, has asked those working in the shops — or he’s been told ahead of time he is welcome to stand on the counter.

And this guy’s running for *squints* president? Good to know that he makes sure his countertop visits are cleared.

You noticed that too?

A lot of people are still trying to figure that out.

His wife didn’t actually eat the baby poop … he just served it to her saying it was avocado. At least that’s the story.
