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.

Pete Buttigieg Called Out By His Own Brother-in-Law on Tucker: “Anti-God”
Rhyan Glezman isn’t going easy on his brother’s husband.
Pete Buttigieg’s own brother-in-law, Pastor Rhyan Glezman, slammed the Democrat’s presidential campaign during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Wednesday.
Glezman, the brother of Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten Buttigieg(It’s probably safe to say Glezman doesn’t agree with Buttigieg’s lifestyle), takes offense at Mayor Pete’s use of Christian language and invocation of biblical teachings in his campaign.
Glezman slammed Buttigieg’s support of unrestricted abortion. Watch the segment here:
“I’m just in a state of lament when you hear that we have someone running for commander in chief who can’t make a moral decision on whether to keep a child after it’s already been born or to have it killed. What kind of moral suggestions is he going to be given if he can’t come to an understanding of that? It’s just, it’s alarming.”
Buttigieg has made frequent Christianity-based attacks on conservatives throughout his campaign.
Pastor Glezman wasn’t willing to give even the slightest free pass to his moralizing brother-in-law, flat out calling out Buttigieg as an anti-Christian candidate in his conversation with Tucker.
“Just everything that Pete is pushing is, it’s anti-God. I’m just going to be honest with you. Nothing lines up with Scripture for him to make cases like to say that you cannot be a Christian and vote for Trump. He’s the one that is openly contradicting God’s word over and over.”
After a strong performance in the Iowa Caucuses, the elite Democrat has somewhat fallen off the map, the wind in his sails stolen by megabillionaire centrist Michael Bloomberg.
