[Ed. – O’Rourke’s relationship with food (or at least his ideas about putting things in the human mouth) seems to be a peculiar one.]
A new report on 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s marriage to real estate heiress Amy Sanders O’Rourke reveals the former Texas congressman indulged in some bizarre cuisine following his failed U.S. Senate bid in Texas.
O’Rourke, who in January launched a five-state road trip across the Southwest, found himself eating dirt told to possess “regenerative powers” during one stop in New Mexico, according to the Washington Post. The newspaper said he also brought some of the dirt back home to Texas for the family to eat, as well.
The strange antidote is one of several unflattering details to have emerged regarding O’Rourke’s past since officially launching his campaign last Thursday.
