Conservative talking head Ben Shapiro has proven once again that he might be the dimmest bulb in all of conservative media. In a viral clip on Monday, Shapiro claimed that there wasn’t a single “prominent” Republican who challenged Barack Obama’s legitimacy as President, a statement that was incredibly easy to debunk. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains why Shapiro thinks he can get away with such obvious lies.
