Released Wednesday, 26th October 2016
Good episode? Give it some love!
Ben Shapiro is a political pundit, author, and podcaster. He began as a teenage political commentator – he got his start in this business 15 years ago – and has written many books on many different political topics, some of which he wrote even before he attended Harvard Law. Ben is involved in politics in almost every way you can imagine without being a politician himself, and is an ardent Never Trump-er, but also an ardent Never Hillary-er. Today we discuss how Donald Trump won the Republican Primary, where the Republican Party will go if Donald Trump loses, and what will happen to Breitbart after the election.
