  • Potential Democratic presidential contender Beto O’Rourke livestreamed himself at the dentist.
  • He’s known for connecting to voters by streaming mundane moments of his life.
  • This time, though, he may have gone too far.

In his latest move to communicate and connect with the American people, Democratic darling Beto O’Rourke livestreamed himself at the dentist.

The former Texas congressman and senate candidate has been tipped as a hot contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, even though he hasn’t announced whether he’ll run.

He’s risen to fame in part because of his unflagging effort to visit all 254 counties in Texas and neverending communication on social media. In particular, he’s livestreamed mundane moments of his life on Instagram, like himself cutting steak,eating guacamole while driving, and now going to the dentist.

In videos posted to Instagram stories Thursday, O’Rourke asked his El Paso-based dental hygienist, Diana, about her background (her mother immigrated from Mexico) and her thoughts about her community on the southern border (“it’s a wonderful place to live and grow”).

For some people, seeing someone bump dental cleaning tools around O’Rourke’s mouth was a bit too much.^tfw

Most people just joked about the whole thing, though.

In his videos, O’Rourke did not disclose how many cavities he has, if any.
