Hat Tip: The New Americana
Ben Shapiro is wickedly smart and incredibly funny. Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro had Fox News host Leland Vittert laughing so hard he couldn’t remember what question he wanted to ask. It was epic. The whole conversation revolved around foreign policy and how Donald Trump would approach it vs. Hillary Clinton. Hilarity ensued.
Vittert asked Shapiro, “Who wins this fight?”:
Well, America loses. To call this election cycle a dumpster fire is far too cruel to dumpster fires, which at least destroy garbage rather than making them president. The problem here is that every attack that Hillary leverages against Trump on his lack of foreign policy knowledge, experience and basic common sense can be doubly true of her. He can basically reverse everything; she attacked him in that speech on his Russian policy; this is a lady who handed a reset button to the Russians and helped define a policy that handed Syrian control over to the Russians as well as Ukraine over to the Russians.
Every time she attacks Trump, with regard to, for example, his policy in the Middle East on ISIS, she helped create ISIS with her Iraq and Syria policy. When she says that he can’t be trusted with the nuclear button, first of all, her own husband apparently lost the nuclear football when he was President of the United States, according to Buzz Patterson. This is the same lady who set up a private server that made America’s national security secrets vulnerable, specifically for her own personal self-aggrandizement. The problem is that only Hillary can make Trump look like a legit candidate, and only Trump can make Hillary look like a legit candidate.
Then came the question that left them rolling in the aisles laughing… Vittert asked innocently, “Ben, I guess we can all keep dreaming that we are going to apply some substance and some real depth and probity to this discussion but it seems like it’s just not there; we have, to your point, a dumpster fire.”
Shapiro nailed it:
I think that what you’re looking at right now is Donald Trump is running to Hillary’s left on half of her foreign policy and she is in an uncomfortable position because the truth is that she was actually in some areas very hawkish and in some areas very dovish when she was Secretary of State. And now she is having to run to Trump’s right in a time when Bernie Sanders is running hard to her left. It puts her in a very difficult position on foreign policy, and he, no one expects him to even be mildly coherent on foreign policy; he’s so wildly all over the place; he’s throwing the kitchen sink at her.
As far as personality types, when you say there are two different types of personality, I think that’s kind to both of them; I think that Donald Trump has the personality of the drunk uncle who doesn’t drink and Hillary Clinton is more robotic than anybody in the history of presidential politics. You can almost hear the “beeps” and the boops” emanating from her mouth every time she talks.

Sadly, in the end the lack of foreign policy competency isn’t funny and America loses. But Shapiro has an incredible wit and calls it like he sees it. Foreign policy may not dominate this election, but it should. It’s that serious and that deadly an issue.
