- BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): “Meanwhile the media are going nuts today because Ted Cruz, apparently, is in Cancun. Now, I will admit that this is bad optics. Of course it’s bad optics. Whenever there’s a crisis, if you are seen to be having any sort of good time because our politics are incredibly stupid, this mean that you’re responsible for the crisis. Everything in politics is performative right now. Members of Congress don’t do anything for a living.”
- “The reason why AOC is a star is because she goes to immigration facilities and takes photoshoots outside of immigration facilities being emotional in response to what is going on, apparently, inside the immigration facilities. I mean, the more performative you are in politics the better you do these days. That is just the reality of the situation.”
- “And also, I just wonder, what is Ted Cruz — do they expect Ted to go there with, like, a blowtorch and start defrosting all of the pipelines? He can do what Beto O’Rourke does and he can tweet out a bunch of links of people who are helping out. I’m sure Ted’s already done that. But the notion that the gravest of all sins is that you took your family to a place that is not Texas in the middle of a bad situation in Texas — my favorite part of this is all the journalists in their heated apartments in New York who are tweeting angrily about all of this.”
