  • Beto O'Rourke Apologizes For 'Privileged' And 'Elitist' Campaign Launch

Co-host Meghan McCain told O'Rourke in the interview she did not think a female presidential candidate could say or do some of the things the former congressman has done in his campaign, such as announcing his candidacy in a glossy magazine focused on popular culture, current affairs, and fashion. It's going to take a movement.

During an appearance on The View on Tuesday, the candidate said he regretted the Vanity Fair cover, in particular his comments about being "born to be in it", and acknowledged that he has a long way to go when it comes to reckoning with his while male privilege. "Not just of Democrats, but of independents and Republicans as well".

"Do you think you can get away with more because you're a man?"

McCain pressed O'Rourke, who has announced a reboot of his campaign, to defend his campaign thus far, in particular the Vanity Fair cover story - and he couldn't do it.

"You're right", O'Rourke replied.

To deal with it, she turned to therapy. "I think it's necessary to have someone to talk to, and to help you through that". Williams then shared that she started to look "within" herself to figure out why she was having those negative thoughts.

To shore up his failing poll numbers, Beto has launched a national apology tour in recent days, apologizing to co-hosts of The View for his "privileged" and "elitist" campaign launch. "Would you say those are mistakes, being on the cover of Vanity Fair?".

"There are things that I have been privileged to do in my life that others can not", he said. No one is born to be president of the United States of America.

"I have an opportunity to answer your questions, Rachel, and address those who may not have been able to attend them and make sure that they can hear what this campaign is about and how I answer the questions that are put to me", he said. "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. Least of all me".
