Comedian and actor Russell Brand and Daily Wire editor emeritus Ben Shapiro discussed their respective — and vastly different — parenting styles, cultural issues, and even marijuana during a loose, unscripted conversation over drinks in “The Search.”
Brand, a free-thinking liberal who’s against censorship and harsh lockdown mandates, said he’s against almost all “government intervention” when it comes to parenting, noting the recent trend of children being raised as their opposite sex. Shapiro argued that the government must have some role in protecting children, particularly from abuse.
“When it comes to something that’s super personal but also intersects with the culture,” said Brand, who has two daughters aged five and six. “I reckon that you and I would raise our kids different, you know?”
“I imagine,” answered Shapiro, who has four children — all under nine years old, including an unborn child. “Your kids aren’t going to Jewish day school, so yeah.”
“They’re not going there, and I don’t imagine that your children smoke cigars yet, for example,” Brand joked. “Mine are quite heavy smokers.”
Shapiro quipped, “My son, I don’t know — he’s turning seven soon.”
