Ben Shapiro, who is a frequently irrational critic of President Donald J. Trump, deleted an offensive tweet he published mocking the president’s response to the horrific fire that destroyed much of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France.
The Daily Wire founder and #NeverTrump political pundit mocked President Trump’s response and his intellect earlier this afternoon, then deleted it after a massive backlash.
President Trump wrote “So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris,” then wondered “Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out.”
“Must act quickly,” added the president.

Shapiro used this as an opportunity to mock the president, and belittled the tragedy in the process, quoting the president’s tweet and writing “‘Why doesn’t the football team put it out?’ – President Donald J. Trump”, suggesting the president does not know the difference between the world famous cathedral and the American University of Notre Dame.
Shapiro tweeted again later in the day, acknowledging his decision to delete the tweet, writing “Wrong time, obviously. Apologies, all.”
He had also received push back after describing the Catholic place of worship as a “monument to Western civilization“, and falling back on the Judeo-Christian ethics of Western nations when corrected.
Deleted my tweet joking about Trump and Notre Dame football. Wrong time, obviously. Apologies, all.

Rarely does a week pass without Shapiro criticizing President Trump on an issue most conservatives agree with the president on, but this may be the most egregious example of Shapiro’s anti-Trump tendencies.
Last week, Shapiro appeared on a news program to repeatedly belittle President Trump’s intellect. He also sided with the left by labeling President Trump as a “divisive” leader who is not “qualified to really speak to the foundations of Western civilization.”
In March, Shapiro went on a lengthy Twitter rant bashing President Trump for his decision to walk away from the negotiating table with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, describing the president’s efforts and accomplishments to denuclearize and pacify the renegade nation as “amateur hour.”
Earlier in the year, Shapiro was heralded by an anti-free speech Democrat Ted Lieu for his stance against the declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Much of this, perhaps exempting today’s incomprehensibly offensive jibe, should all come as no surprise to Big League Politics readers. Last year Shapiro himself admitted that he is little more than a Hollywood-built amalgamation created to bilk conservatives of money and sell them neoconservative ideas.

Joe Rogan Takes Joe Biden To Task: “Trump Will Eat Him Alive”
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking.”
Joe Rogan took presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to task on his podcast Friday, calling out Democrats for refusing to admit that Biden appears to be cognitively challenged and lacking mental acuity.
Biden expressed exasperation with leading Democrats for refusing to consider that the 77-year old former Vice President might not be at his mental prime.
“You have to be able to call out s*** that’s wrong on your side. That’s the problem the Democratic Party is having right now with that Joe Biden guy. You guys have to be able to call it out. You can’t let this slide, because everybody else sees it, and Trump is going to eat him alive.”
Rogan had earlier pointed to Biden’s tendency towards serial gaffes as a disqualifier for the presidency, expressing his view that Biden’s cognitive decline was obvious and visible.
“He stumbles through s***, he forgets what he’s talking about… The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking.”
Joe Biden has claimed that he’s running for the Senate instead of the presidency, confused his wife with his sister during a Super Tuesday victory speech, and stated that 150 million Americans have died of gun violence in the past two decades.
Watch the candid segment of the Joe Rogan Experience here:
Ironically, while Rogan’s primary audience appears to be younger conservative men, the longtime MMA announcer leans to the left of the political spectrum and endorsed Bernie Sanders last year.
Establishment Democrats have sought to shut down discussion of Biden’s mental state, likening serious questions as to the prospect of the former Vice President’s potential cognitive decline to be “disinformation campaigns.”
Should they prove unable to simply silence questions as to the party elder’s acuity, they’ll have no one to blame but themselves.
