Ben Shapiro Compares Needing Healthcare to Wanting a Nice Couch

Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro invited a wave of rebuke by comparing needing health care to wanting a nice piece of furniture.

Shapiro was responding to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who has called healthcare a right and denounced President-elect Donald Trump and Republicans’ plan to repeal Obamacare.

Shapiro’s tweet garnered angry responses from people condemning his remarks as heartless.

Although Shapiro often supports positions taken by President-elect Donald Trump, he does occasionally criticize him. Early Monday Shapiro called out Trumps “hackneyed defense” after Meryl Streep denounced him at the Golden Globes Sunday.
