'The Essence of Sexism': Shapiro on Alyssa Milano's 'Shocking' Comments on Men, Kavanaugh
Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro reacted to actress Alyssa Milano expressing outrage at Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the contention that men should be concerned in social situations going forward.
Donald Trump Jr. said in a recent interview with London's Daily Mail that he is "scared most" for his sons, in the wake of the misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.
Milano told another news outlet that "women and young people have had it difficult for generations and we will not be silenced any longer. And if that means men have a hard time right now, then I'm sorry, this is the way the pendulum has to shift."

Shapiro called Milano's comments "shocking" and the "essence of sexism."
He said on "The Story" that Milano means that due process shouldn't apply to men. "[That's] the idea that certain rules should not apply to people on the basis of their genetics."
"White men are presumed guilty because they are white men," Shapiro said, characterizing the actress' remarks.
Shapiro also reacted to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker saying that Kavanaugh's guilt or innocence should not matter at this juncture, and that President Trump should just choose someone else because of the firestorm of "questions."
"Cory Booker raises serious questions about his sanity every day," Shapiro said. "But in order to oust him from the Senate, you'd need to come up with evidence he's insane, not merely the implication that he's a moron."
