WATCH: Ben Shapiro Quizzed On History By ‘Kid Explorer’ Broadcast Cal

Daily Wire.

Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro showed off his knowledge of history this week while sitting down with Broadcast Cal, star of the Bentkey original show “Kid Explorer,” who quizzed him on a variety of topics from American presidents to inventions. 

The two discussed the invention of the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell, President Abraham Lincoln, and the American Revolution, among other topics from history. 

During their discussion, Cal asked Shapiro what sport Lincoln was known for, prompting Shapiro to answer “wrestling” and give more background on the athletic prowess of the 16th president.

“He would actually challenge dudes to wrestle in the streets. There are a bunch of stories about people confronting him, being like, ‘Let’s throw down right now,’ which is totally not what you think of when you think of Abraham Lincoln,” Shapiro said. 

Shapiro also gave more context on the debates between Stephen Douglas and Lincoln, which focused on federal versus state power. 

Historians have “preserved a huge number of these speeches and sort of the back and forth between Lincoln and Douglass and those those arguments are relevant right now on other subjects, actually, not just regarding slavery, because they’re all about what should be left to the states, what should be left to the federal government, which sort of subjects should be left to the people versus taken off the table by the Constitution,” Shapiro said. 

The two also discussed the shot heard round the world at the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the 1783 Treaty of Paris, and how long Britain’s King George III was in power. 

“Wow, a dominant performance,” Shapiro said after Cal’s final question. “But there are certain things that I didn’t know. Even I can learn things from the Kid Explorer and so can you. Which is why you should go to Daily Wire+ and subscribe if you haven’t already. ‘Kid Explorer’ is a great show for kids. They’ll absolutely love it.”
