Beto O'Rourke

2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke (D) speaks on “The View” – 5/14/19. Screen grab via ABC.

Beto O’Rourke has been desperate to gain traction in the presidential race for the Democratic nomination.

He was supportive of abortion up to the day before birth. Shockingly, that didn’t do it for him.

He’s threatened to grab our guns. Oddly, that failed too.

But now, he may have really found the issue to raise him from that one percent plateau.

Feminine hygiene products.

He announced his support for the “Menstrual Equity Act” on “National Period Day,” saying “men need to join women in demanding real change.”

But as PJ Media observes, O’Rourke may be a little bit behind two other 2020 Democratic candidates, Julian Castro and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), in his pandering on the issue.

According to GovTrack, this legislation will “increase the availability and affordability of menstrual hygiene products for individuals with limited access, and for other purposes.”

Individuals. Because men have periods too! Duh! Beto may not have gotten that memo, but Cory Booker and Julián Castro did. They also tweeted about National Period Day, but didn’t single out women as being the only sex that actually needs menstrual products:

Bad Beto.

No word yet on the other Democrats, but can they be far behind?
