Years ago, we would never have expected to say this, but … Kylie Jenner makes better relationship decisions than her sister Kim.
Beto O’Rourke’s campaign for Senate has attracted national attention, in part because he is looking to unseat Ted Cruz.
As you’ll see in the video we’ve included, Travis Scott returned to his hometown to support O’Rourke’s campaign.
On Sunday, October 28, Travis Scott appeared at the Bayland Park Community Center in his hometown of Houston, Texas.
He was there to drum up support for Beto O’Rourke.
"You just need to go out, hit these polls …" Travis encouraged the crowd while speaking with a microphone.
"We need to just tell our peers, man," he continued. "To like step out and vote."
Travis assured those who had gathered: "We can change the world."
Travis is from Houston. In fact, his family still lives there.
Famously, he and Kylie were spotted in Houston after news of her pregnancy broke, as he introduced her to his family.
Kylie’s baby daddy was not the only celebrity who was there to promote O’Rourke.
NFL player Arian Foster, another Houston native, was there to drum up support.
O’Rourke tweeted a photo, writing: "Houston’s @trvisXX and @ArianFoster! Big thanks to both"
There is often a narrative that celebrity endorsements are a form of outside influence.
(This is a narrative pushed by the political Right, whose celebrity endorsements tend to be rarer and much stranger)
O’Rourke’s campaign side-stepped this issue by being endorsed by Houston’s native sons while in the city itself.
A Texan, celebrity or not, supporting a candidate in Texas is the furthest thing from "outside influence."
If elected, O’Rourke will be part of the face that Texas shows to the world.
Beto O’Rourke was instantly likeable to many because he is running against Ted Cruz.
Dislike of Cruz is not a partisan issue — it is one thing that united Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.
O’Rourke gained national attention when the GOP tweeted a photo of him from years ago when he was in a band.
This was a huge misfire by political strategists, who hoped to show Beto as a young musician and not a serious politician.
Instead, people around the country just noticed that O’Rourke was both cool and hot.
That’s O’Rourke on the left. People who have never set foot in Texas in their lives saw this photo had had sex dreams about him.
But we have a sneaking suspicion that sex appeal is not why Travis Scott is endorsing the guy.
Instead, Travis Scott wants a better country for himself and his family than the one that we currently inhabit.
Violence, bigotry, and vitriol fill the news every week.
This has to be particularly concerning to Travis because he is now the father of an almost-nine-month-old child.
Travis wants a better future for Stormi.
A couple of years ago, when Kylie was dating Tyga, we would never have imagined that we’d be praising her partner.
Instead, look at Kim’s marriage to a MAGA-hat-wearing impulsive man-child who won’t listen to anyone.
Kanye is embarrassing his loved ones with his antics. Even Caitlyn Jenner admits that Trump sucks.
Travis Scott seems to have a good head on his shoulders and to be a good person.
Sometimes, people find it difficult to feel optimistic about midterm elections.
The answer is to vote, whether you feel enthusiastic about it or not. Do your part to make the world a better place.
