Years ago, a young man told me that his generation doesn’t care about either Rush Limbaugh or Rachel Maddow. Instead, they get their cultural and political information from podcasts and videos. And in the world of podcasts and videos, one of the biggest political stars is 36-year-old Ben Shapiro -- who refused to vote for Trump in 2016. This time around, though, Shapiro has given Trump an enthusiastic thumbs-up, both because of Trump’s proven history of conservative governance and because the Democrats have become insane.
In a statement that lasted less than nine minutes, Shapiro opened by succinctly stating the three reasons why he supports President Trump in 2020:
1. “I was simply wrong about Donald Trump on policy.”
2. “I wasn’t really wrong about Donald Trump on character, but whatever damage he was going to do has already been done, and it’s not going to help if I don’t vote for him this time.”
3. “Most importantly, the Democrats have lost their [bleeping] minds.”...
Thus, according to Shapiro, Trump has cut regulations; appointed dozens of originalist judges; cut taxes; lowered unemployment; supported the pro-Life movement; pulled America out of the disastrous Paris Accords and Iran Deal; crushed ISIS, al-Baghdadi, and Soleimani; refrained from starting any wars; moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem; brokered real peace deals in the Middle East; cracked down on China; restored due process on college campuses; and, perhaps most importantly, refrained from using the excuse of the Wuhan virus to increase government control over Americans....

Shapiro notes that the Democrat party's current state has moved so far left in four years that it doesn’t even resemble the party that nominated Hillary Clinton. ...

So, why does it matter what a 36-year-old podcaster says? It matters because he’s hugely popular. ...
