Ben Shapiro has an agenda. His supporters are gobsmacked by his ability to talk fast, appear smart, quote statistics (which no one on the R checks) and verbally manipulate the conversation. They also love the way Shapiro "destroys" the Left. Shapiro is like the boxer who is quick on his feet and wins with habit--not knock-outs.

Shapiro holds some pretty outrageous views. Those views are entertaining to his supporters, not necessarily because they hold the same views but because Ben Shapiro likes the idea of destroying his detractors. Annihilate. Obliterate. That's the key to Ben Shapiro's popularity.
His arguments are all riddled with inconsistencies, contradictions and logical fallacies.

Not a problem.

There is a video that has been referenced on DTT at least twice where Shapiro “destroys” actress Olivia Wilde on her position about abortion.

Shapiro’s entire argument is predicated on twisting her words to say that she is favor of abortion up until a minute before birth. SHE SAYS NOTHING OF THE SORT.

If this is MO (it’s really the only thing I’ve seen of him) then he’s just a fast talking con man”

His popularity can be attributed to exactly that which has made Dear Leader so popular: an aversion to staying on the honesty side of the boundary line of truth...the ability to appear to know something when, in fact, he's just taking pot shots...and, most importantly, the prime goal being to hurt others and brag about it. It makes no difference if he's right or wrong - only that he hurts others or advocates the harm of others.

These people and their cult followers have almost cornered the market on schadenfreude.

Olivia patted her very pregnant belly and said “my decision “.

Shapiro was spot on. And even if you try to play semantics and say that wasn’t her position, Shapiro refenced Hillary , who takes exactly that position.

Yes, it was her decision TO HAVE THE BABY. Shapiro tried to twist it to mean that she was saying she could have the abortion now. That isn’t what she said at all.

I don’t care what he said about Hillary, that has NOTHING to do with what he said about Olivia Wilde.

Furthermore, in the same video, he brings up Kermit Gosnell trying to equate him with legal abortions. He also tried to claim that Gosnell story wasn’t covered implying some kind of media cover up.

All in all this video was just one lie after another.
