MSNBC’s Malcolm Nance is a blowhard who is constantly saying things that are nonsense under the veneer of an ‘expert’ opinion.
He was on “Real Time with Bill Maher” when he did it again, claiming that President Donald Trump “managed to mobilize 40,000 people” to “lay siege to the Capitol.”
But Ben Shapiro, Editor Emeritus of the Daily Wire, wouldn’t let him get away with that lie.
After falsely claiming 40,000 people stormed the Capitol on 1/6, @BenShapiro SCHOOLS Malcom Nance's nonsense and dangerous conflation of all right-of-center Americans as terrorists.
Shapiro THEN points out that Nance has called him a "racist" who should be banned from D.C. pic.twitter.com/hgkr22uU08

“One, 40,000 people did not assault the Capitol, okay? It’s just factually inaccurate,” Shapiro said. “There were maybe 1,000 people. That is not making light of the evil of those people who all will end up rotting in prison, as they should.”
Nance continued to try to claim they did, “How many people came to that rally?”
Shapiro countered, “Were all those people assaulting the Capitol? Is that your contention now?”
Nance claimed, “They all marched on the Capitol and then the leading…” Shapiro cut him off to correct him, “They all marched on the Capitol? That’s just inaccurate, Malcolm.”
Nance insisted, “Facts, Ben.”
That’s when Shapiro crushed him. “Yes, you’re not mentioning them.” The liberal audience and Maher didn’t understand how he was wrecking him. Shapiro then finished him off. “I’ll tell you why this is an important thing. This is very quick. I’ll tell you why that’s an important point. Because, Malcolm, you have a terrible habit of conflating people who do actual violent activity with a broader rubric of everyone, for example, who voted for Trump, which was 75 million people, and that really is ugly. You’ve tweeted about me, for example, that I’m such a racist I shouldn’t be allowed in Washington, D.C. That sounds rather authoritarian in attitude to me. I’ve never called for you to be kicked off of MSNBC; I’ve never called for anybody not to buy your book.”
That’s the bottom line here and the continued purpose of Democrats bringing this up again and again. Not to talk about the facts or what actually went down. But to try to demonize Trump and all Trump supporters. Good on Shapiro for pointing it out. And the deeper reason of why Democrats want to do that is a simple one – they want to do anything that they can while they have Joe Biden there to grab and solidify their power so they can block out Republicans for the future.
Just a reminder, this is the same guy who tweeted out a picture of a Trump property in Istanbul. “This is my nominee for the first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property,” Nance said. He later deleted it but you can see it below. He clearly is a guy with issues.
