Ben Shapiro: Obama's tears were "100% political theatrics"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Ben Shapiro, Editor-in-Chief of DailyWire.com, joined me on The Ezra Levant Show to talk about President Obama crying during his gun violence speech.

He also explains why Obama's latest anti-gun policies are really just about posturing and politics.

I point out that Obama never cried after the Paris and San Bernardino terror attacks; after those and other terrorist massacres, he tends to go golfing or fundraising.

Shapiro adds that as an Orthodox Jew, he feels far less safe now in America than when George W. Bush was president.

(PS: Shapiro counted the number of times Obama mentioned himself in his 30-minute speech. Can you guess the number?)

Looks like someone spat on his eyes!

The president is fake, and so were those tears!

Calamity, it’s not me that’s swallowing anything, it was a genuine show of empathy…

Terrence Fitzpatrick swallows the BS hook, line and sinker. The sniffling President doesn’t weep for anyone other than for himself. He wants his politics enacted and he leaves no stone unturned, including shedding tears, to gain his will.

bad actor.

The President teared up while he was talking about children being shot & along comes Ben Shapiro to make the erroneous claim (like a lot of right wing news) that President Obama was ‘faking it’ , Ben should be ashamed of himself but than that would show empathy something Ben seems to be incapable of. Poor frightened little Ben, scared of transgender reporters, scared of facts & pretty much a horrific angry little man…

Obama is baffled why gun violence is common in Chicago and rare in Texas—hey dummy, it’s because Texans have guns! #‎guncontrol

What’s it like to be out there……WAY out there on the fringe Deborah?

Ron Christensen, aka Gordo Steele, CRAZY. You didn’t even view the video. It is painfully obvious what a fake acting job it was that even those standing with the worst president in US history couldn’t keep a straight face.

Ron then go away, no one is forcing you to stay. You are so left it makes me laugh. Sorry if the truth hurts you baby.

I’m not an Obama fan either but Shapiro…you’re way off line with this. And ‘The Rebel’ is losing credibility when it publishes self-serving crap like this. You’re losing me, Ezra, because there are a lot of credible, against-the-grain news/comment websites that don’t lower themselves to this level.
I am convinced Ezra Levant and this publication is doing a fine job in turning Canadians off. It has become a cult of “Extreme Right Wing” Nutbars who, in fact, are being bilked out of their money by the great circus barker, Dizzy Levant. He has learned well from Harper. They both know how to take advantage of the intellectually unfortunate. Damaging the reformacon brand is what I am happy about more than anything else. Conservatives across this country know the “Progressive” part needs to return. It will but it will take another 10 years to rid the nuts.

Those like B.O. and our little Junior and their faithful followers will one day pay for the deceptions against the public. They think they have the world by the tail, but I can assure them the world owns them, because of their evil ways! They won’t be able to hide behind that ridiculous fool B.O. when they stand before God, and are condemned to hell for their actions.
commented 2016-01-08 10:36:37 -0500
The really big show brought to you by the traitor to America, B.O. I can’t wait to see the back of this guy on the way out the door.

Listen carefully at the 23 second mark… the “water-on” signal can be heard very clearly.
commented 2016-01-07 23:09:07 -0500
Jack Matches, did you even watch it? I did, and it is utter nonsense from the weakest president in history. It belongs in the bin with the worst acting in history, and those around the president knew it. There expressions speak volumes. No doubt other world leaders are having the laugh of a lifetime.

Hahaha! I just noticed the woman in green beside him too … Hahahaha :-D

I am surprised Michelle let him out of the house without his hankie, what a showman. Rouhani, Putin, Salman even Kim Jong-un must have had a good chortle.
commented 2016-01-07 19:51:20 -0500
That was great. You’re awesome. You two are too sharp. Could add some dramatic theater besides facts and relevance, pro quid quo. Maybe right minded people should stage grieving, instead of trying to drag these liberal pantywaists up out of the cesspool they’re creating.

Chicago is a gun free zone…why do you think people are shot there every day? Oh yeah…no legal guns allowed for self-defense…now only the crooks have (illegal) guns, AND THEY KNOW IT…so you have a free-for-all mob invitation to Chicago. The left has actually created the situation in Chicago that endangers innocent lives.

Restricting legal guns in any way also has the capacity to increase the number of people killed by illegal guns…if you care about people, just remember ‘AN ARMED SOCIETY IS A POLITE SOCIETY’.

Check the expression on the big fella’s face standing behind Obama when he wipes a tear … priceless :-D
commented 2016-01-07 18:51:54 -0500
Ben Shapiro is very effective on assessing Obama’s character and motives. He talks fast too. I would be interested on what he thinks of Trudeau. It would be very informative and probably funny.
commented 2016-01-07 18:47:54 -0500
He looks weaker every day, what a tool
