Ben Shapiro is our top pick for most butthurt column this morning following the landslide victories of Trump and Sanders in New Hampshire:
“On the surface, there’s not much in common between New Hampshire GOP primary winner Donald Trump and Democratic primary winner Bernie Sanders. Trump is a billionaire businessman; Sanders is a career politician. Trump’s personal favorability is the lowest of all candidates on either side; Sanders’ is the highest. But the impulse that drove New Hampshire voters to the polls for Sanders is the same as the impulse that drove them to the polls for Trump: the desire for a powerful authority figure to fix everything using the power of government. In fact, before the New Hampshire primary, CNN reported, “Because independents can register as ‘undeclared’ in New Hampshire and then vote in either party’s primary, the Vermont senator’s campaign has noted some of these voters are wavering between Sanders and Trump.”
There’s a reason for the confusion: Trump and Sanders aren’t that different on policy. Really. …”
Trump and Sanders are “totalitarians” because both share common ground on a number of issues: trade, campaign finance, veterans, Medicare and Social Security, Iraq and Russia. Trump also attacks Wall Street and doesn’t want to see poor people dying in the streets because of their lack of healthcare. That’s a bad thing?
Note: This little twerp filed a police report against Zoey Tur rather than meet her in a one-on-one confrontation in the parking lot.
