As usual, no one's asked for his opinion, and these facts don't care about his feelings.
Right-wing pundit Ben Shapiro really wants to know what Brett Kavanaugh's genitalia look like.
He also doesn't believe that rap music is music because his daddy says so, and he thinks American healthcare is just fine the way it is (despite multiple metrics ranking the U.S. as having the worst healthcare system of any developed nation). As the editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and host of The Ben Shapiro Show, the 35-year-old has haunted the Intellectual Dark Web for years with his mantra, "Facts don't care about your feelings." As the author of 10 books, he's been ruining the days of millions of Americans for years with his bastardization of facts twisted to suit his conservative ideology. Here are just three of the gems he's said this past week.
Rap Music Isn't Real Music
In a conversation with rapper Zuby on another episode of The Ben Shapiro Show, Shapiro said that rap music isn't music because his father said so: "In my view, and in the view of my music theorist father who went to music school, there are three elements to music. There is harmony, there is melody and there is rhythm," Shapiro said. "Rap only fulfills one of these, the rhythm section. There's not a lot of melody and there's not a lot of harmony. And thus, effectively, it is basically spoken rhythm. It's not actually a form of music. It's a form of rhythmic speaking. Thus, beyond the objectivity of me just not enjoying rap all that much, what I've said before is that rap is not music."
In point of fact, rap music is a form of music because of, among other things, its use of instrumentation and pitch.
