Report: Beto Ate Dirt for “Regenerative Powers” After Senate Loss

According to a profile in the Washington Post, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke ate dirt after he lost his 2018 Senate race to Ted Cruz.

“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,” writes the Post. “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.”

As Breitbart points out, this is one of many strange revelations about O’Rourke since he announced his candidacy for president:

“The strange antidote is one of several unflattering details to have emerged regarding O’Rourke’s past since officially launching his campaign last Thursday. In recent days, the candidate confirmed to Reuters that he was a member of a controversial hacker group the “Cult of the Dead Cow” while he was a teenager. He also admitted to penning a murder fantasy at 15-years-old in which he imagined mowing down children out jealousy for their happiness. O’Rourke was also forced to apologize on Friday for quipping during a campaign stop that he is only partly involved in raising his children.”
