Like many people, I was looking forward to the debate between H3 host Ethan Klein and Louder With Crowder host Steven Crowder. For a time, the two had been trading online barbs with one another over various topics, mainly CDC decisions made during the COVID-19 pandemic.

H3 spent a lot of time attempting to get that narrative out and about so that the lie could get around the world before the truth could get its pants on. Twitter even assisted Klein by making Crowder trend with all the accompanying insults and declarations of victory before Crowder could even
