♪♪ STEVE: JOINING US LIVE HERE IN NEW YORK CITY, BEN SHAPIRO EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF THE DAILY WIRE. HOST OF THE BEN SHAPIRO PODCAST, WILDLY SUCCESSFUL. YOU ARE IN TOWN ROASTED BY COMMENTARY MAGAZINE.>>THAT IS A BLAST. USED TO RECEIVING A LOT OF HATE IN PERSON. STEVE: ONE PARTICULAR LINE THAT STOOD OUT? AINSLEY: MADE YOU MAD?>>FROM SOMEBODY ROASTING YOU OR YOU AS A ROASTEE.>>DANA PERINO KEPT CALLING ME SHORT. I FOUND THAT DISTURBING. SHE IS TINY PERSSON. BRIAN: DOESN’T HAVE THAT AABRASIVE PART OF THAT PERSONALITY.>>I WAS SHOCKED BY THE CRUELTY OF DANA PERINO. AINSLEY: YOU ROASTED BACK.>>YEAH. JASPER CAME IN FOR A COUPLE. STEVE: THAT IS HADDER DOG. COMMENTARY MAGAZINE FROM THE “NEW YORK TIMES,” WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF “THE NEW YORK TIMES” BEING CAUGHT, NOT ONLY APOLOGIZING FOR INAPPROPRIATE TWEET, THEN AN EDITORIAL NOTE FIXED ON THIS NEWS ANALYSIS, THAT SAID, ESSENTIALLY, YEAH, YOU KNOW WHAT? WE LEFT OUT THE FACT THAT THE WOMAN DOES NOT REMEMBER THE STORY?>>I WOULD SAY IT IS UNBELIEVABLE EXCEPT IT IS INSANELY BELIEVABLE. EVERY TIME “THE NEW YORK TIMES” MAKES A MISTAKE, DIRECTION OF SOMEBODY ON THE RIGHT GETTING CLOCKED. THAT IS PARTICULARLY TRUE IN THE KAVANAUGH STORY. THERE IS MUCH BIGGER STORY IN THE BOOK NOT REPORTED BY TIMES, THAT LELAND KAISER, BEST FRIEND OF CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD DIDN’T BELIEVE FORD’S STORY AND PRESSURED BY THE ALLIES TO CHANGE HER STORY. THEY BURIED THIS PARTICULAR STORY IN THE NEWS ANALYSIS SECTION SO THEY DIDN’T RUN IT THROUGH THE NEWS SECTION. THEY REMOVED THE LINE THAT SAID THE ALLEGED VICTIM DIDN’T REMEMBER THE INCIDENT IN QUESTION, THEN REPLACED LATER. THAT IS NOT JUST BAD JOURNALISM. THAT IS BOTCHING, THAT IS PURPOSEFUL. BRIAN: SEE THEM TRY TO EXPLAIN THEMSELVES OUT OF THIS. THE TWO WRITERS OF THE BOOK TALKED ABOUT WHAT THEY WROTE FOR THE OPINION SECTION OF THE NEWSPAPER AND THEN HOW IT WAS HE EDITED OUT. SEE IF YOU BUY THIS.>>THERE WAS NO DIRE TO WITHHOLD IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM OUR READERS. WE HAVE IT ALL IN THE BOOK. DURING THE EDITING PROS SETS WAS KEY OVERSIGHT, THE WOMAN HERSELF DOESN’T REMEMBER IT AND NOT WANTED TO TALK ABOUT IT, GOT CUT. IT WAS OVERSIGHT.>>WE’RE A TEAM AT “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” WE HAVE PROCESSES IN PLACE.>>I THINK ACTUALLY THE WAY IT HAPPENED WAS THE EDITORS BEING CONCERNED ABOUT NAMING HER IN THAT SENTENCE, HAD HER NAME. ALSO HAD SHE DOESN’T REMEMBER IT. WE ALSO TOOK OUT THE FACT THAT SHE DIDN’T REMEMBER IT. AINSLEY: IS THERE A VICTIM?>>SHE DOESN’T REMEMBER IT.>>THERE IS NO STORY HERE. THIS PROMPTED HE HAD TOLLS FROM “THE NEW YORK TIMES,” “WASHINGTON POST,” HOW THE FBI WAS ENGAGED IN A SHAM INVESTIGATION. THEY ARE NOT INVESTIGATING A ALLEGATION WITH NO ALLEGED VICTIM? IT IS INSANITY. BRIAN: DO YOU BELIEVE THE EXPLANATION?>>OF COURSE I DON’T BUY THE EXPLANATION. HOW IS IT OVERSIGHT YOU DON’T REMOVE THE NAME, YOU REMOVE THE KEY DETAIL OF THE ENTIRE STORY. THAT IS THE CENTER OF THE STORY. STEVE: THE CENTER OF THE STORY WAS FROM A MAN WHO USED TO BE A ATTORNEY FOR BILL CLINTON. STEVE: DURING IMPEACHMENT.>>HE WOULD NOT SPEAK TO THE AUTHORS OF THE BOOK EITHER. AND ONLY SPOKE THROUGH TWO OTHER PEOPLE WHO WERE OFFICIALS WHO WE DON’T KNOW WHO THEY ARE. BRIAN: YOU MEAN THE NON-PARTISAN ATTORNEY? THAT IS WHAT THEY WROTE. STEVE: NON-PROFIT OR SOMETHING.>>EXACTLY THE WHOLE THING IS ABSURD. THEY IGNORED THE REAL STORY. THAT IS THE “NEW YORK TIMES” AND. BRIAN: WHAT ABOUT EVERY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE THAT IMMEDIATELY CALLED FOR KAVANAUGH TO BE IMPEACHED ON A STORY THAT HAD NO SUBSTANCE?>>YOU MEAN DEMOCRATS DON’T CARE ABOUT DUE PROCESS? AGAIN, ALWAYS BRETT KAVANAUGH? MAKE HIM THE FACE, WE DON’T CARE ABOUT DUE PROCESS. EVERY TIME THEY SAY THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT DUE PROCESS, THEY SHOULD FLASH HIS PICTURE. AINSLEY: WHAT ABOUT BIDEN AND HIS LATEST BLUNDER. HE WILL PUT 720 MILLION WOMEN BACK IN THE WORKFORCE. PROBLEM IS THERE ARE ONLY 330 AMERICANS. LISTEN TO THIS.>>YOU GET A TAX BREAK FOR A RACEHORSE, WHY IN GOD’S NAME WOULD WE PROVIDE 8,000-DOLLAR TAX CREDIT FOR EVERYBODY WHO HAS CHILD CARE COSTS. IT WOULD PUT, IT WOULD PUT 720 MILLION, MILLION WOMEN BACK IN THE WORKFORCE. IT WOULD INCREASE THE GDP TO SOUND LIKE WONK LEAR BY .8 OF 1%. IT WOULD GROW THE ECONOMY. BRIAN: NEVER SOUNDS LIKE A WONK IN DEFENSE OF JOE BIDEN. WHAT ABOUT THE NUMB? HAVE YOU LOOKED INTO THE NUMBERS? YOU’RE VERY GOOD AT MATH.>>I’M VERY SURE THAT DOESN’T ADD UP. HE IS STUMBLING INTO OBJECTS. JUST SEARCHING FOR EARLY BIRD DINNER AT DENNY’S, DRINKING CANS OF ENSURE ON ROUTINE BASIS, THAT IS BAKED IN THE CAKE. I TAKE PERSPECTIVE IN THE GENERAL ELECTION MIGHT NOT BE BAD TO LOOK SENILE, OLD, INEFFECTUAL, HONESTLY HE DOESN’T LOOK DANGEROUS. IF YOU’RE TRYING TO RUN SOMEBODY AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU DON’T WANT TO SCARE THE AMERICAN POPULATION, JOE BIDEN IS THE BASE OF NOT SCARY WHAT IS SCARY OF A MAN WALKING AROUND WITH TENNIS BALLS ON HIS — STEVE: WARREN IS SECOND OR THIRD PLACE. SHE IS DOING BETTER. NUDGING PAST BERNIE. IF SHE PICKS UP REST OF BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORT. ELIZABETH WARREN WILL REMAIN SHE HAS NO BLACK SUPPORT. THE FACT JOE BIDEN RETAINS AN ENORMOUS SHARE OF BLACK SUPPORT. HE WAS VICE PRESIDENT TO BARACK OBAMA. ELIZABETH WARREN IS WHITER THAN I AM BY A LARGE STRETCH AND IDEA THAT SHE WILL START PICKING UP BLACK SUPPORT FROM JOE BIDEN IN THE ABSENCE OF BIDEN HAVING FALL INTO THE VAN LIKE HILLARY CLINTON MOMENT I — BRIAN: SHE HAS ALMOST NO MIDWESTERN SUPPORT. THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY DOES NOT LIKE ELIZABETH WARREN. A DEMOCRAT I TALK TO ON MONDAY, IF SHE GETS NOMINATION, DONALD TRUMP HAS FOUR MORE YEARS.>>A LOT OF DEMOCRATS ARE WORRIED ABOUT THAT. DESPITE THE FACT THAT JOE BIDEN IS OLDER THAN METHUSLAH. AINSLEY: I’M PICTURING, CUTTING X’S IN 10 BUSINESS BALLS AND METHUSALAH.>>YOU THINK JOE BIDEN IS ONLY DEMOCRAT WINNING?>>I DON’T THINK HE HAS AT SHOT WIN BUT HE HAS THE BEST SHOT. HE IS THE DEFAULT DEMOCRAT BECAUSE HE BASICALLY IS THE BODY OF WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S. ALL YOU DO WALK HIM AROUND. BRIAN: ALL THE POLLS SAY HE IS NOT WINNING AGAINST ANY DEMOCRAT THAT RAN FOR OFFICE EVER?>>HE MAY NOT WIN THE PRIMARIES. THAT MAKES HIM APPEALING IN THE GENERAL ELECTION MAKES HIM VULNERABLE IN THE PRIMARIES. BRIAN: DID YOU ENJOY THE APPEARANCE HERE?
