Democrat candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke livestreamed his colonoscopy on Periscope today, hoping to boost his poll numbers and catch Bernie Sanders who underwent emergency open heart surgery on Tuesday.
The procedure lasted thirty minutes, most of which Beto spent under general anesthesia.
“We can’t beat open heart surgery for sheer drama,” said campaign manager and fellow Irishman Jen O’Malley Dillon. “But we can let people know that Beto is just like them only better, because who else is feckin’ cla enough to post their colonoscopy on the Internet?”
Earlier in the week, Beto livestreamed his flu shot and his poll numbers dropped almost a half percentage point.
“If he doesn’t rebound before the next Democratic debate, we may have to consider a more serious medical procedure,” said Dillon.
