Beto Admitted To Eating Magic Dirt After Humiliating Loss to Ted Cruz Left Him in a ‘Funk’

Democrats desperately want to win back the White House in 2020, but their pool of potential candidates is starting to look more like a shallow pond.
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren was held up as a possible front-runner even before she officially entered the race, but a series of gaffes, including her Native American ancestry scandal, have cast doubt on her chances.
Sen. Kamala Harris of California, another liberal senator from a coastal state, attracted attention as a possible leader, but she hasn’t exactly ignited a firestorm of enthusiasm, either.
She and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker — yet another Democratic 2020 hopeful — recently hitched their futures to the “Green New Deal,” which would most likely be one of the most expensive and disastrous big-government takeovers in history.
That brings us to Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, one of the best-known Democratic contenders.

The former Texas congressman received his fair share of media attention when he ran for Senate against Republican Ted Cruz last year, giving him a boost in public recognition.
The president of the United States is one of the most important and stressful positions in the world, with history-changing decisions often resting on his shoulders. But a series of eyebrow-raising and simply odd stories about O’Rourke is raising questions about just how serious of a candidate he truly is.
Buried in recent Washington Post biographical piece about O’Rourke is a bizarre tidbit that should make every American pause and ask a few questions.
Apparently, the man many Democrats think can defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 run also believes that magical dirt is a big part of success.

We’re not kidding. After O’Rourke lost his Senate race to Cruz — disappointing liberals who donated a whopping $70 million in the process — he left his family behind to lick his wounds on a soul-searching journey … one that included swallowing dirt.
“Beto … was in a ‘funk.'” The Washington Post wrote. “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers.”
Uh, what? This is a man who wants to be the president of the United States next year. But it gets even weirder.
“He brought some home for the family to eat, too,” The Post continued.
Hey, wouldn’t want that magical “regenerative” dirt go to waste!

Think about this for a minute. The left frequently slams conservatives as “anti-science,” implying that anyone who doesn’t want to tank the entire economy over “climate change” can’t be trusted to make key decisions.
But there didn’t seem to be much of peep from the same left when O’Rourke basically admitted that he believes some sort of shamanic quest that included munching on soil gave him mysterious powers.
Now, it’s possible that this was just a silly story that the 2020 contender relayed to The Post while leaving out some important details. Yet it’s worth comparing the media’s coverage of past GOP candidates to their fawning treatment of liberals like O’Rourke.
Think back to when Mitt Romney took on Barack Obama in 2012, for example. The establishment media seemed to gleefully take any anecdote from Romney’s past to put him in a bad light, such as taking a humorous three-decade-old story about his dog on a family trip to smear the Republican as cruel and having bad judgment.
As the 2020 election heats up, will the same media give the crowded Democrat field the same treatment, asking hard questions about the dirt they dig up?
We’ll see, but you probably shouldn’t hold your breath.
