Who is Ben Shapiro and why is he so feared and loathed by liberals?

You may know Ben Shapiro as the editor-in-chief of conservative news site, The Daily Wire, or as the controversial political speaker who unapologetically dismantles weak liberal arguments on college campuses nationwide and multiple media outlets. But who was Ben Shapiro before he became the outspoken voice of America’s young conservatives?

Ben joined Glenn Beck for a candid interview on today’s show. “I don’t know if the audience has ever really been introduced to you formally,” said Glenn, adding, “I don’t know what happened to you — I don’t know if you were bitten by a spider or something happened — but you are wicked smart.” Addressing Ben’s early graduation from high school, Glenn asked, “You were 16 years old going to UCLA, what was that like?”

“Well, it was fun, I mean, I hated high school. I was glad to get the hell out of there,” said Ben. “High school was garbage. I was two years younger than everybody else … when you’re 5 foot 2 and like 120 pounds, and smarter than most the kids in your class, and kind of obnoxious, things go real well for you in high school … yeah, going to college was great.”

Here are a few more interesting points discussed in today’s interview:

  • Ben graduated high school at age 16.
  • He graduated from UCLA [summa cum laude, of course] in 2004.
  • At age 17, he became the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in the U.S.
  • Ben has written several bestsellers including: “Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America’s Youth” (WND Books, May 2004), “Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future” (Regnery, June 2005), and “Project President: Bad Hair and Botox on the Road to the White House” (Thomas Nelson, 2008) and New York Times bestseller “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America” (Simon & Schuster, 2012).
  • He graduated with honors from Harvard Law School in 2007.
  • He started his own legal consulting firm, Benjamin Shapiro Legal Consulting.
  • He was the editor-at-large at Breitbart until he resigned in March 2016.
  • Ben’s columns have been published numerous newspapers and websites, and he has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows around the country.
  • An Orthodox Jew, Ben has often spoken out against anti-Israel and anti-Semitic movements.
  • Now 34, Ben has been married for ten years and has two children.

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
