The full interview airs on Friday's CBS This Morning, but a clip airs on Thursday's CBS Evening News. The only reason Beyonce and Oprah gushed over him was the off chance Democrats could've taken back the Senate to impact Supreme Court nominees.
"There's just this profound value in being able to be apart from the system and look at it critically and have fun while you're doing it", O'Rourke, whose handle was Psychedelic Warlord, is quoted as saying.
"I wouldn't be surprised if there was an assumption of competence, an assumption of quality and a desire for him to run again, as a man", said MJ Hegar, who lost a close congressional race in Texas in the fall.
The president has repeatedly denied any collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation to try and interfere with the presidential election.
As with much else about O'Rourke, it's hard to say if his manner of speaking is born out of honest enthusiasm or if he's been made aware of studies like that and is attempting to work it into the packaging of himself as a candidate.
He told the network: 'How Congress chooses to address those set of facts and the findings which I believe are soon to see from the Mueller report is up to them.
"Think, a free society with no high, middle, or low classification of it's [sic] people", O'Rourke reportedly said in one of his writings. "I think the wealthiest at a time of historic income inequality should be asked to pay a greater share".
"I don't even know if he's the best skater in the Dem primaries", he continues.
On Thursday, Twitter was flooded with clips from users eager to remind the president that he and O'Rourke aren't all that different when it comes to public speaking habits.
The president was not alone in noticing O'Rourke's hands in the video, but his knock on the 2020 hopeful's hands struck many people online as ironic, considering his own hand movements during speeches are well known.

Trump revealed his Beto plan nearly immediately, mocking O'Rourke's wild hand gestures while speaking, and asking, "Is he insane, or is that just the way he acts?" "And I've actually never seen anything quite like it".
Meanwhile, on Comedy Central, Trevor Noah also likened Trump's movements to a musical performance.
"I've got decades of showing people where my heart is, where my dedication is", Booker said.
