Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke (TX) is trying feverishly to put those long, flailing arms to work repairing his failing image…by fixing a flat tire with cameras at the ready.

In the words of a Daily Beast article regarding desperate Beto’s bids for attention, “You bet he got up on that counter.” Rest assured, though, in a field of two dozen candidates, Beto’s flash in the pan is all heat and no sizzle. He’s done.

NBC reported, “It’s another sign of O’Rourke’s surprising popularity among national Democrats and a potentially troubling indication for Sanders, whom MoveOn endorsed in the 2016 Democratic primary.
