Ben Shapiro retweeted a photo of his newest employee today, Kassy Dillon, where she was standing in front of the White House. Dillon says, “I am excited to be joining the Daily Wire team!” Her next tweet was from inside the White House Press room. This tweet and Shapiro’s retweet have led to wide spread specualtion that the Daily Wire, Shapiro’s media outlet, has obtained a White House press pass.

Fans of Shapiro were shocked, “I love Ben, but he spreads a lot of ‘facts’ that aren’t bound in truth. Like that there are 680 million radical muslims. Applying the title of ‘fact’ to these theories is a bit dangerous, especially with that sort of access to the White House.”
Critics took to Twitter to share their disdain over this newly acquired pass.
Is there a booster seat in the back so @benshapiro can see the podium?
