On Wednesday’s episode of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” the Daily Wire editor-in-chief talks about Elizabeth Warren’s collapsing campaign, and the senator bragging about taking a $3 donation from a college student with only $6 in the bank. Video and partial transcript below:

[The epic collapse of Elizabeth Warren is] more hilarious than anything else. Watching that pathological liar just fall apart like a mudslide in the Hollywood Hills has been extraordinarily entertaining. So let me just take a moment and pay tribute to the worst campaign of them all. 

Elizabeth Warren is now in full-on mourning mode and it is delicious. Last night, she said she’s not going to drop out because, of course, she can’t drop out. If she drops out, it demonstrates that her campaign has been one of the biggest failures in recent memory, since Kamala Harris. This was like a massive failure.

As of October, she was the presumptive nominee. She was leading in New Hampshire; she was leading in Iowa; she was picking up ground in places like South Carolina. And then she presented her “Medicare For All” plan. She tried to put flesh on the bones of Bernie Sanders’ garbage plan, and she completely fell apart. Just imploded…

[Last night] a 19-year-old woman, who was going to college, came up to Elizabeth Warren complaining that she had a lot of student debt. She said, “I have six dollars in my bank account and I’m giving three dollars of it to you,” and Elizabeth Warren tweeted that out as though this was a mark of her vision. That seems, first of all, pretty regressive, is it not? The woman has six dollars to her name, and you’re taking three of them for your garbage campaign that is going to blow it on ads that have no impact? [Warren] is just terrible, she’s a terrible person. 

So last night she announced that she was staying in the race for no apparent reason, because she’s got no shot at the nomination. I mean, Bernie is consolidated and she’s in Bernie’s lane. He’s picked up all his support from her. Here is Elizabeth Warren being awful at this:

WARREN: You know me, did the speech and then afterwards did a selfie line, and we were there for over an hour. People are coming through and they’re saying “thank you” and they’re given hugs and talking about what’s important to them. Young woman came up by herself and she said, “I’m a broke college student with a lot of student loan debt.” And she said, “I checked and I have six dollars in the bank. So I just gave three dollars to keep you in this fight.” That’s what we gotta do.

We have to take money from people who can’t afford it? That’s what you got to do? In fact, Elizabeth Warren then smacked her across the face and was like “Where’s the other three dollars?! You bring your other three dollars, lady?! Don’t you want to win?! Don’t you want my campaign to be successful?! If you were really willing to fight, you would give me the other three dollars in your bank account. And don’t worry, I’ll leave alleviate all student loan debt at the end. In fact, why don’t you just rack up another twenty grand in student loan debt, you can max yourself out right here on this campaign, and don’t worry, a little bit later, I will relieve all student loan debt. You know, if you have to falsify the documents a little bit, just give me some money and funnel it to me, and take it out of student loan debt then just kind of hand it to me.”

What a terrible human being. I mean, seriously, if somebody came up to me at an event and they were like, “I have six dollars to my name and I want you to have five of those dollars,” I’d be like, “No, here’s a twenty, go get yourself a nice meal.” Like, seriously, who is this person? Who is this? That’s insane. But that’s Elizabeth Warren’s campaign from top to bottom. Completely ridiculous, completely insane. Completely out of touch with regular Americans, even while pretending to represent regular Americans.

The lady’s been teaching at Harvard Law for twenty years, she’s not been in touch with regular Americans for several decades at this point, and by regular Americans, I mean people who don’t have tons of money in their bank account. It’s crazy. 

Her new pitch, by the way, is that people are being mean to each other and mean to her that’s her new pitch. So she got skunked last night. I mean, just destroyed. She won 9.6 percent of the vote in a state neighboring her own, she won a grand total of eleven thousand votes last night. Just a brutal, brutal showing, and Elizabeth Warren then gets up in Manchester, New Hampshire, says, “Yeah, we were bad, but people keep fragmenting this party and that’s terrible.” 

No one has fragmented this party more than Elizabeth Warren, [she’s] been an attack dog against virtually everybody else to get on that stage, and she’s awful. Pretty soon, those sweaters the good news is ladies, if you’re looking for Ann Taylor Loft multi-colored sweaters, those will be on half price within a matter of about three weeks because Elizabeth Warren’s demand for them have dropped ridiculously.
