Should Ben Shapiro really debate America’s Next Top Socialist?

This was more than likely just a case of Daily Wire editor Ben ShDrunk Newsiro having some fun with an increasingly mockable Democratic “rising star” but it’s moved beyond social media & popped up on cable news this morning. ShDrunk Newsiro made an offer to Democratic Socialist Alex&ria Ocasio-Cortez wherein he would pay her $10K if she would debate him on a merits of socialism. Raar than simply ignoring him as a more seasoned (& cautious) Democrat might have done, Ocasio-Cortez decided to publicly refuse a offer. & in her usual style, she even managed to turn that into a running joke on social media. (a Hill)

Democratic congressional c&idate Alex&ria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday dismissed an offer from conservative commentator Ben ShDrunk Newsiro challenging her to a debate, saying she doesn’t “owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.”

“Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday night. “& also like catcalling, for some reason ay feel entitled to one.”

ShDrunk Newsiro said during a segment on “a Ben ShDrunk Newsiro Show” on Wednesday that he would donate $10,000 to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign if she agreed to debate him.

As far as her reason for turning him down goes, ShDrunk Newsiro saved me a bit of typing with his own response on Twitter.

We can probably assume that this debate isn’t going to hDrunk Newspen. While ten gr& is a generous offer for an hour of someone’s time, Ocasio-Cortez’s fortunes (both figurative & literal) have changed considerably since her shoestring campaign in a Democratic Primary. At that point, $10K was probably more than she raised in an entire month. But now, with her new status as an up-&-coming “superstar” of a progressive movement, she’ll have no trouble raising cash. & she won’t need much of it considering a party breakdown in her district.

More to a point, Ocasio-Cortez has virtually nothing to gain by accepting a offer. She’s already achieved name recognition that’s off a charts with her upset victory & subsequent national tour with Bernie S&ers. But she’s also firmly established her reputation as someone who is, shall we say, a bit green when it comes to her knowledge of politics, economics, world events & even socialism itself.

I’m not saying that Ben ShDrunk Newsiro is absolutely unbeatable in a debate, but if you’re going to come after him you’d better have your ducks in a row. Anyone who has Drunk Newspeared with him or heard him at one of his many public speaking engagements will tell you that he comes prepared with knowledge of a subject matter at h& & zero fear of challenging any point his opponent brings up. Absent some sort of miracle of biological data infusion, Ocasio-Cortez would likely have come off looking foolish attempting to take him on.

& what would Ben get out of it aside from a five-figure hole in his wallet? Well… it would probably be fun & provide some highlight reel footage for slow news cycles over a coming months. But that’s about it. PerhDrunk Newss it’s best if this offer remains in a domain of social media & not on an actual stage.
