"Yeah, I think it reinforces that perception of privilege", O'Rourke replied.

Beto O'Rourke made his long-awaited debut on ABC's "The View", where he wilted under tough questioning by co-host Meghan McCain. "No one's born to be President of the United States of America". 'I do. I think I'd be good at it'.

'I want to be in it. Man, I'm just born to be in it, and want to do everything I humanly can for this country at this moment, ' O'Rourke told the magazine.

O'Rourke rose to national stardom during the 2018 midterm election cycle in his Senate race against Republican Ted Cruz.

"I've had advantages that others could not enjoy, so being aware of that and then doing everything in my power to help correct that, working with others, ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, for example, so that it is beyond the shadow of a doubt that women will be treated equally in this country, staring in the face of the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow and continued oppression in our economy and system of justice is the only way you begin the work of fix, and stop visiting those injustices on the generations that follow", O'Rourke said.

Is the bloom off he Beto O'Rourke rose?

'There are a number of women who aren't running, who may run, including Stacey Abrams, who is a real hero to me. "Were those things that she mentioned, would you say those were mistakes?" "So I hope that I'm continuing to do better over time".

The former Texas representative clarified that he meant to portray that he was born to be in public service.

In addition to his appearance on The View, which has hosted other 2020 presidential candidates like Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, O'Rourke also added a CNN town hall event to his list of national media appearances this month as a part of his campaign reboot.

"I think that there's no one person who can be up to every single one of the challenges that we just described", O'Rourke said. O'Rouke, who climbed onto the top counter of the Democratic Party with his inspired (but unsuccessful) Senate run a year ago, has seen his poll numbers plummet in recent weeks.

Last week, Abrams was mocked for insisting she isn't delusional, then claiming she secretly must have won the election. 'You don't run for second place'.
