Matt Lewis Says Donald Trump Is The Wrong Kind of American Icon

Ben returns to host Matt Lewis for a discussion of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and the 2016 field.


The candidacy of Donald Trump “is a symbol of how far our civilization has come–in the wrong direction.” That’s according to Matt Lewis, a senior contributor at the Daily Caller, who joins Ben Domenech to discuss the 2016 presidential field and his upcoming book.

On today’s Federalist Radio Hour, the veteran political writer gives his take on both the Republican and Democratic candidates. He explains that the DNC will be playing “with a weak bench,” this time around and notes that “there’s no Barrack Obama for 2016 yet.” Taking a closer look, he also observes a Hillary Clinton credibility problem, a Bernie Sanders identity crisis, and the potential for a bid from Vice President Joe Biden.

“When was the last time a two term party, denied their former vice president the nomination?” Lewis muses.

Later in the program, the journalist and podcast personality discusses his upcoming books, Too Dumb To Fail, and comments on the beta-male phenomenon plaguing society.
