Beto O'Rourke 'Vanity Fair' profile mocked for stories about ex-girlfriends, bookshelves and his 'near-mythical experience
Beto ORourke is officially in the 2020 presidential race, but early polling suggests his Vanity Fair profile isnt going over well.
ORourke, who announced to his supporters Thursday morning he was tossing his hat in the ring for the Democratic nomination, was the star of a fawning, 8,600-word opus published by the prestigious magazine on Wednesday.
The wide-ranging interview is the cover story of the latest edition of the magazine, with the 46-year-old boldly declaring he was "just born to do this".
The Vanity Fair piece, written by Joe Hagan, seemed to echo the fawning tone of much of the media coverage that followed his failed bid to unseat Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz last fall.
Hagan, who previously penned a similarly photographed and written profile of another Democrat, former presidential candidate John Edwards, wrote in the new piece: "For ORourke, what followed was a near-mystical experience," referring to his entry into politics.
Some of the other parts of the profile include the writer speaking to some of ORourkes ex-girlfriends, and one glowing piece of prose describing the Democrat as an endurance-athlete campaigner.

Not driving a Tesla or taking the electric train?
Man what a hypocrite...
Want to see fawning? Check out the numerous tweets by the Texas Tribune. They were in absolute ecstasy!!!
He is awkward and homely. Reminds me more of a young Justice Souter than anyone else.
The media and the Democrats are obviously looking for the next Obama
The problem for THEM is he is actually a completely unique figure in all of history
The guy is actually a lot smarter than any of us want to admit and this is because of his ability to use the spoken word
He actually eclipsed the great Billy Jeff Clinton and his ability to use the spoken word
Now of course all of us staunch conservative can see right through it but we have to on its face Sydney met the power of the speech that the guy can give
He was also black which is huge for Democrats
But the bottom line is the guy had eight years and all he really wanted to do was party with Beyoncé and play golf
He was more about the accolades in the process of running then actually being a chief executive
So now theyre looking at this kid Robert Francis ORourke is the next Obama
No freaking chance
Lets start off with the fact that hes never been elected nationally he just lost a race and hes a white male
This election cycles very predictable are great and wonderful president Donald J Trump will completely utterly eviscerate whoever is left standing after this commie slugfest
Given the current field, Bernie is headed for a primary victory if the DNC lets him. He just needs to be at 25-30% which he has.
You have to be a “confidence” man. Obama had it. Trump has it. Roberto doesn’t have it. He seems unsure of himself.
Girlfriends? I thought he was gay.
"Born to it," indeed!
A born BOZO!
I knew a journalist at the time - and he knew about the John Edwards rumors before the story broke... but once it broke - and with pictures - he said they HAD to cover it. That was an early break in the wall ... eyes slowly opening to reality of the corruption and bias of the press.
