Ben Shapiro rose to fame as a conservative political commentator known for his right-wing views and values. He has garnered controversy and a dedicated fan-following in equal amounts.
Ben Shapiro’s daily routine is pretty structured and centered on his family and his work. However, a critical note that he makes is that no one is good at multitasking, so he makes sure to have dedicated blocks of time for each task in his day.
Although his work may be controversial, his lifestyle is relatively standard; he wakes up and spend time with his children, goes to work, and then comes home to spend time with his wife and children. However, it is his workday, where he spends time writing and working at The Daily Wire, a conservative media website, that garners the most interest from the public.
Ben Shapiro spoke about his daily routine during an interview with Dr. Brian Keating, an astrophysicist, and podcaster, in a 2020 YouTube video titled, “Ben Shapiro: How to DESTROY America, Daily Habits, Science Fiction, and his DREAM guest!”
The interview is just under an hour-long, but if you are interested solely in Ben Shapiro’s daily routine, the discussion begins at the nine-minute mark.
Otherwise, Ben Shapiro says that the COVID-19 pandemic had certainly impacted his routine and lifestyle as it did for many folks, as his children were staying home from school at the time. His wife, Mor Shapiro, who is a doctor, was also on extended maternity leave.
In his own words about his routine, “Well, Covid killed it!”
However, Shapiro stated that he kept a very structured daily routine before the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the mornings, he would wake up early and get his kids’ breakfast ready and prepare them for school before his wife woke up for work. He would also review the news on his phone, pray before work, then head to work at The Daily Wire.
At work, he would work on his podcast and write. In 2020, at the time of the interview, Ben Shapiro wrote a book called “How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps,” which decried disintegrationists.
In the words of the Amazon book blurb, “Disintegrationist attacks on the values that built our nation are insidious because they replace each foundational belief, from the rights to free speech and self-defense to the importance of marriage and faith communities, with nothing more than an increased reliance on the government.”
After work, Ben Shaprio would come home to eat lunch, work out, and do some more miscellaneous work on various writing projects. In the evening, he would prep for the next day’s show and spend time with his wife.
He describes it as a well-balanced life and says that one of the biggest hurdles he faced was believing that he was any good at multitasking. He says multitasking simply does not work and that the best thing to do is to block out dedicated chunks of time in one’s daily routine to accomplish each task and give it one’s complete attention.
Ben Shapiro’s most significant chunk of time, his workday, is perhaps his most controversial.
Ben Shapiro created The Daily Wire, a right-wing media outlet, which has garnered massive controversies due to its content. The highly-stylized content is high-quality, but the topics draw the eye of the public and media alike.
For example, Vanity Fair noted that as he both criticized the now-former president Donald Trump, many right-wing people did not like his content. Still, because of his other views (such as declaring that transgender people are mentally ill), he was also not welcomed by left-wing people.
However, his personality and signature debate style still drew massive audiences for his content and work. The same Vanity Fair article also noted comments that he made about Palestinians living in “open sewage.”
However, on a lighter note, Ben Shapiro also garnered some attention due to a video clip he recorded as he recited the lyrics to Cardi B’s song, “WAP.” He recites the lines with visible pain in his voice as he continues, “and it gets significantly more vulgar.”
Forbes even wrote an article detailing the internet’s reaction to this video, which was in the typical fashion of the internet, incredulous and more than a little mocking. This reaction was exacerbated by other controversies surrounding Ben Shapiro.
Notably, in one exchange, Ben Shapiro claimed that people displaced by the rising tides caused by climate change could simply move and sell their homes, where one internet commentator reportedly replied, “Sell their houses to who, Ben? F**king Aquaman?”
Those would certainly be some Wet Asset Prospects!
