SALT LAKE CITY — Beto O’Rourke announced Wednesday that he is entering the 2020 presidential race, but it isn’t O’Rourke himself who has won the hearts of the web this week: it’s his family dog Artemis.
What happened: A Vanity Fair cover story published Wednesday discusses Beto’s run for office and features photographs of his family. Social media users have noted that Artemis, who appears in many of the photos, looks like she’s having a bad time.
In a few of the photos, the dog can be seen with her head ducked, her ears laid back and her brows arched up, making her appear sad.
Take a look:

Some have said the dog’s sad appearance is a reflection of O’Rourke’s politics or how he would be as president. Others say they’re voting for O’Rourke’s dog for the 2020 election. A Twitter account for the dog has also cropped up in the past few days.
It isn’t the first time Artemis has featured in O’Rourke’s photos. He posted an image of a happier-looking Artemis on Twitter during the 2017 dog show, saying, “Kids and I agree that Artemis is best in show.”
