Beto O’Rourke Tells ‘The View’ That His Vanity Fair Cover Was a ‘Mistake’ and ‘Elitist’

“Yeah, I think it reinforces that perception of privilege and that headline that said I was born to be in this, in the article I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling was in public service”

In the midst of a reset of his stalled presidential campaign, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) acknowledged on morning gabfest The View on Tuesday that the splashy Vanity Fair feature kicking off his 2020 run reinforced a “perception of privilege” and was a “mistake.”

“Yeah, I think it reinforces that perception of privilege and that headline that said I was born to be in this, in the article I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling was in public service,” O’Rourke responded. “No one is born to be President of the United States of America, least of all me.”
