Democratic presidential candidate and former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke addresses a gathering at a campus library during a campaign stop at Colby Sawyer College in New London N.H. Friday

Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough voiced some advice for 2020 presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke: stop apologizing for everything and 'own it'. It's going to take a movement.

Meghan McCain then quizzed O'Rourke on his campaign rollout on the cover of Vanity Fair - in which he said he was "born" to run for President.

He received just two percent support in a recent Monmouth University poll of likely New Hampshire Democratic primary voters. "Do you think you can get away with more because you're a man, and do you have any regrets about launching on the cover of Vanity Fair?".

'Do not apologize for being on Vanity Fair.

"You're right", O'Rourke replied.

These headlines are a far cry from the Vanity Fair cover story (and Annie Leibovitz photo shoot) that accompanied his campaign announcement.

"In a real ham-handed way, I was trying to acknowledge that she has a lion's share of responsibility during this campaign", he said. Behar asked. "It looks elitist?"

"There have been things I have been privileged to do in my life that others can not", he said, adding that not being impacted by the gender wage gap and more were instances of such privilege. "No one is born to be President of the United States of America, least of all me".

'In the article I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling was in public service, ' O'Rourke said.

The candidate also said that his intent in appearing on "The View" was to address a larger, national audience, adding that an appearance of this type would permit him to "introduce myself to more of the country and also answer questions about why I'm running and how I propose to achieve the vision I've laid out".
