After his trip to New York City for the big CNN climate change town hall, failing presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is taking a bus to his next stop, Boston, because it will help save the planet:
Beto O’Rourke spox says that he is indeed taking the Bolt bus from NY to Boston bc it pollutes less. Airport travel/security "takes nearly every bit of time as the 4 hr Bolt ride – so why not choose the lower carbon option?"

And as sad as that sounds, the photo is worse. WAY WORSE.
Can you imagine Liz Warren or even Joe Biden standing on a street corner in NYC? They’d be mobbed! But for Beto? Nobody cares:

And FWIW, bus travel is no good anyway for tall people:
Hey team Beto – get the guy a train ticket ffs. The Bolt Bus sucks if you're tall.
