Ordinarily we wouldn’t consider video of Beto O’Rourke changing a tire news, but the image is just the perfect analogy for his presidential campaign; he started out riding high, but somewhere along the way, someone let the air out of his tires, and now he’s trying to build that momentum again.
He’s already re-launched his campaign once, on “The View,” but the debates didn’t do him any favors, so here he is changing a flat and trying to get back on the road to 2020.

The man really does own only one blue shirt, doesn’t he?
This video is an unintentional metaphor for his candidacy.

We get to watch millionaires eat corn dogs, flip pork chops, do shots in a gay bar and change tires.
I have to pinch myself. I just can’t believe how lucky we are. https://t.co/v6VCHN8Ca3

So what did he actually do? Loosen and re-tighten the lugs on his car. The tire wasn't even flat.

But.. the tire on that gas guzzler isn't even flat. 🤷#GreenNewDeal

This probably made him late for his dental appointment.

What does this have to do with anything? This man is in desperate need of help.
— MRO (@MichaelOlden4) August 12, 2019
Trying to show his masculinity which he clearly lacks 🤣🤣

Doesn’t he have an intern or staffer to do stuff like this for him? We’d bet Amy Klobuchar with a tire iron in her hand could get some assistance fast.
This actually depicts what he really does. A)Let air out of tire B) Get someone to film him C) pretend to fix problem while showing how incompetent Francis is.

Can you say staged , looks like the Lugnuts are all ready loose , just like his presidential run🤷🏻♂️

😂 Pretty soon we'll be watching this guy get a colonoscopy

He's just like us!

Correction: watch @BetoORourke demonstrate he has no freaking clue how to change a tire.

No @BetoORourke , you dont put the jack under the running board. Geez.

This is ALMOST as thrilling/exciting/etc as when he got his hair cut….

Looks same as his campaign STRUGGLING

😂😂😂 let me guess the person filming just happened to catch him doing this.
— John Paxton (@John071010) August 12, 2019
Just like the reporter assigned to cover Elizabeth Warren on the campaign trail “just happened to come across” Warren buying lemonade from some girls with a sidewalk stand. And the format of the screen makes this look like yet another Periscope broadcast, so we’re guessing he had a staffer live-stream this for his fans.
he asked if they were broadcasting live and was it worth getting their hands dirty?

If I described what this looks like, I would be thrown off Twitter again.

I didn’t know a furry could change a tire

Glad to see he doesn’t suffer from any of that masculinity people keep fretting about.
— #WhatsYourName (@Wally389) August 12, 2019
No toxic masculinity to be found here.
Painful to watch how bad he is at manual labor.

Reminds me of Obama riding a bike

I can honestly say I’ve changed flat tires a dozen or more times in my life and have never had the need to have it recorded to show that I’m a regular guy.
— AGerhardM (@tonymatt9) August 12, 2019
Just how he is standing you can tell this was just for show. I bet this was his 1st time. Also he is to clean to actually have changed tire himself. A real man isnt afraid to knee down instead of standing os squatting awkwardly.
— Jason Downey (@jasondowney1981) August 12, 2019
Should I consider him more authentic today?
— Ryan Bass 🇺🇸 (@ryanwbass) August 12, 2019
Good to know he has a fallback gig.
— Gail (@SisterGail) August 12, 2019
Newsworthy? No. But is it fun to make fun of Beto O’Rourke? Always.
MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle is hopeful that recent shootings could afford Beto O'Rourke the opportunity to 'gain some momentum' https://t.co/T9BbhRSHrN
