Ben Shapiro: ‘We’re In a Vortex of Stupid and It’s Reduced to a Black Hole of Idiocy’

Ben Shapiro shared his thoughts on the ongoing feud between President Trump and the NFL.

Host Dana Perino asked Shapiro to react to Hillary Clinton‘s remarks on the subject, which Perino reacted to by accusing the failed candidate of “continuing the 2016 campaign.”

“It never ends. We’re in a vortex of stupid and it’s reduced to a black hole of idiocy and we’re never going to escape it now.” Shapiro responded. “We’re just going to be ceaselessly reliving 2016.”

The conservative podcast host and The Daily Wire editor-in-chief said that Trump condemning the kneeling during the national anthem was “totally fine” but him calling for the firing of those NFL players was “not appropriate from a government official.”

“When I think that President Trump has wrong footed on racial issues, I’ve been very clear about it, but I don’t see the racist intent here,” Shapiro continued. “If she is talking about people that are white that Trump has attacked, she could look in the mirror because Trump does that every single day and continues to do that nearly a year after the election. So this isn’t about race. This is about Trump felt like he had an issue that he got to club, and so he was going to club that issue like a baby seal. That’s essentially what he did in Alabama.”
