Former Breitbart editor and now editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire (a great site, by the way) Ben Shapiro delivered one of the funniest lines of the election season on Monday night, leaving FOX News host Megyn Kelly looking shocked and Donald Trump supporter Herman Cain, a failed 2012 presidential candidate, looking butthurt.
I watched it live, and I had to watch it a couple times with the Mrs., to laugh at some of the expressions on Ben Shapiro’s face when Herman Cain made some outlandish arguments in an ill-conceived attempt to provide cover for some of Trump’s craziness, as well as Megyn Kelly’s contention that Trump had recently been controlling himself better lately — an absolutely absurd assertion.
It makes you wonder exactly what happened in the recent private meeting between Trump and Kelly. It must have gone extremely well because any honest observer would admit that Trump has been as unhinged as ever. But I digress.
Shapiro, who supports Ted Cruz , told Kelly that perhaps Trump “dialed back from a spinal tap eleven to a spinal tap 10.5,” and that Trump is going to have a struggle in convincing delegates that he’s going to morph into something more presidential when he spends “most of your day ripping on how John Kasich eats his pancakes while you dust your face with Cheetos before you do TV appearances.”
Shapiro made some brilliant points which neither Cain nor Kelly could logically refute like if Trump doesn’t reach a majority of delegates at the convention it’s his own fault.
Donald just received a little bit of his own ridicule right back at him and neither Kelly or Cain liked it one bit. Watch Shapiro laugh. It’s awesome.
