Democrats have apparently discovered the joys of reality TV with yet another live video feed documenting their oh-so-exciting lives.

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke took his Instagram followers along for a trip to his dentist for a cleaning on Thursday, following the awkward trend of Democrats live-streaming their lives.

With Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cooking up dinner, Sen. Elizabeth Warren kicking back with a beer and now O’Rourke’s dental hygiene, Democrats seem to have found a cringe-worthy way to connect with the people.

“So I’m here at the dentist and we’re going to continue our series on the people of the border,” O’Rourke said in a video Thursday, allowing his dental hygienist, Diana, to relate her experiences about growing up near the U.S.-Mexico border.

Diana recounted how she was born in El Paso to a father who was a U.S. citizen and a mother who was born in Mexico. She told viewers that the area near the border is “a beautiful community” contrary to what others think it is.

“We all support each other, we love each other. It’s not what everyone else thinks,” she said, echoing O’Rourke’s claims that the US-Mexico border  is “one of the safest places in the United States.”

The live-streaming video quickly captured social media attention, and many wondered what in the world they were witnessing.

Many Twitter users feared the trend would only get worse, and pondered the horror of where it could lead.
