How tall is Ben Shapiro

Ben Shapiro's Height

5ft 6 ¾ (169.5 cm)

American political commentator. He has mentioned he is 5ft 9 numerous times on twitter, including a dig at Trump: "LOL! Even I, at a strapping 5'9", have bigger hands than 6'2" Trump. Sad! Weak!", and a mention of his weight "5'9" and a ripped 155.".

Benjamin A. Shapiro looks to be five foot six and an eighth of an inch.

hey rob how tall do you think Tom Macdonald is? he claims 6'1 but a quick google search of him next to ben shapiro shows he most likely isnt
Editor Rob
maybe got caught short a bit with posture/pavement? Here is photo. I've not seen enough of Tom to know if he's under 6ft an inch or two.

Rob, Joe Rogan looks taller than Ben. Donโ€™t you think he needs a height downgrade at least 5โ€™6 1/4?
Editor Rob
I think Joe is a guy who can stand very well to maximise his posture, whilst Ben isn't a guy who puffs his chest out or cares about looking taller.

@Thomas asdasd

Stay strong and never shy away from your heritage and identity. Iโ€™m currently disgusted by the rising tide of anti-Semitic hate crimes around the world; especially in Europe, and to a lesser extent the U.S. Itโ€™s coming from the far-right and left but mainly from the Islamists and jihadists of course. Racism in all its forms must never be tolerated, and we should all unit in condemning this extremely ignorant, dangerous and primitively barbaric disease that is anti-Semitism.

Peace from Sweden.

Happy to discover that I'm his height twin... And I'm also Jewish! :)

Then that means Lauren's nowhere near her 5'7" claim. She could be more 5'5" range, at least based on the pic.
Vincent Letruth said on 24/Jul/20
Men lie about their height because most women are shallow s about it. You could be 6" taller than a woman but still have her try to shop you over an inch so yes men lie. But womens entire appearance is a lie but yet we focus on men stretching the truth ๐Ÿคฃ
Editor Rob
Check out this photo with Lauren Chen. One of Ben's favourite's - she's in heels, he's a bit taller and she claims 5ft 7.
"I told you I was 5ft 9!" ๐Ÿ˜Ž
vastlybetter3333 said on 24/Jul/20
Rob, imagine if you were a journalist or political commentator interviewing Shapiro about political topics. During the interview, he gets personal, saying something like: "I'm a 5'9 guy".

Would you interrupt him and go: "Well, actually..." or would you ignore it, to avoid him getting angry like a baby?
Editor Rob
It would depend if I knew a person well enough to know if they'd go a long with a bit of banter/humour on the subject.

I certainly wouldn't have a stadiometer backstage, and be saying "Ben, let's just check that...oh, would you mind taking your shoes off too" ๐Ÿง

Though if I were a talkshow host I'd definitely have a measuring segment at the end. No guest would leave the show without it...but then if they knew they were gonna get measured, how many would actually agree to do it?

Even by myself, who isn't going to bend the stadiometer or call out the wrong height or anything ๐Ÿ˜Ž
vastlybetter333333 said on 23/Jul/20
Neil is listed at 5'9 on google. Maybe he was around 5'7 in his younger days and lost a bit of height since then.
Mickie said on 30/Jun/20
Yeah that Dr. Phil picture has got to be one of Ben's favorites. Dr. Phil was probably never 6'4", and has shrunk in addition. Ben held up well next to Bill Mather too. I think Ben is right around 5'7", realistically. I know some people like the thought of him being 5'4" or something, but he's not THAT short. Still lies about his height, though.
Vastlybetter said on 29/Jun/20
@Wilies190

Yes, for example in an interview with BBC journalist Andrew Neil, a member of the conservative party, Ben was confronted with facts by the journalist. Shapiro was unable to deal with any of the facts, presented by the host, so he accussed the interviewer of being "on the left"and "left" the interview.

That's just one example. Check out his views on homosexuality or climate change. You will find out that this person is a "feeling guy". His views are based on a 2000+ year old fantasy book. He should not be taken seriously by anyone.
Editor Rob
I once saw Andrew at Glasgow Airport, he was shorter than myself...I wonder if both Ben and Andrew share the same height.

I wouldn't like to get into an argument with Neil either!

@Vastlybetter

Almost everybody lies about height, either intentionally or unintentionally. Can you give some examples of Ben frequently and regularly using nonfactual emotional arguments?
Vastlybetter said on 27/Jun/20
What happened in that pic? Did Dr Phil experience massive height loss or is Shapiro wearing massive boots here?

The height difference between Phil and Ben is supposed to be at least 18cm. So even if Shapiro was a true 5ft9, he would have to be below or at least right at Phil's eye level, unless Phil has an eye level that's absurdly low.

What am I missing here?

Either Dr. Phil's posture is extremly bad or Shapiro is standing on something.
Editor Rob
If anybody questions Ben's height, he simply takes that photo out of his wallet and says 'Told you so!'

I don't know what's going on, but Phil could well be shrinking and slouching.
Vastlybetter said on 26/Jun/20
Shapiro is absolutely blind to facts. I feel sorry for anyone as driven by feelings as Shapiro is.

I bet if Rob measured him at just under 5'7, Shapiro would be outraged. He would claim that Rob is "clearly on the left".

Anyone who thinks of Shapiro as shorter than 5'9 is CLEARLY a communist and on the left.
Editor Rob
Ben with Dr Phil who claimed 6ft 4...he holds up surprisingly well there.

His motto is โ€œfacts donโ€™t care about youโ€™re feelingsโ€. He seems to base himself around telling the truth. Then clearly lies about something so trivial. Just shows anyone can be insecure. Real height id say 5ft51/2 to 6.
Editor Rob
If a man can lie about something as trivial as height, what other truths will become effortless fabrications.

Also nice video Rob you come across very personable, you should make more to attract guests, Disappointing he lies it kind of harmful to his image we can all see he's no wear near 5'9" I would guess 5'7

I'm willing to bet money he's the type to wear lifts.

He did look shockingly tall with Maher but with Cenk he's not above 5'6.25
Peter175 said on 10/Jan/20
He should just double down his claim to 5'9 in shoes or in the morning, so it wont look so ridiculous when he gets dwarved by real 5'9 ers.

His one of the few males I've seen shorter than Joe Rogan on his show and Joe is lucky if he hits 5'7 before bed (Ben is probably 5'6.25-5 and Joe is probably 5'6.5-7.

Itโ€˜s interesting that his sister claims to be 5โ€˜8. She looks pretty tall, I believe her. Isnโ€˜t it rare that the male sibling is shorter than the female sibling?
Watto said on 16/Dec/19
I've been amazed with the accuracy and objectiveness of the heights on this site, but this one is being way too generous to Ben. 5 foot 5 or 5 foot 6 in his dreams. While I wouldn't say I'm exactly a fan of him I admire his intellect and oratory skills, but I can't defend anything more than 5'5 1/2.
TheBat said on 15/Dec/19
Ben needs a reality check with his height. He's a weak 5'6, that 5'9" claim is an abomination.
Luke anderson said on 14/Dec/19
Iโ€™m exactly a legit height of this listing 5โ€™6 3/4 barefoot, I rarely get called short, when I wear a set of runners I look pretty ok compared to most people, but I can almost guarantee this guy is about 5โ€™5โ€ max with his presence in photos.
I can generally look pretty sizeable next to someone 5โ€™8โ€ not 4 inches shorter.
5โ€™5 is being generous.

Iโ€™d definitely edge him out and Iโ€™ve never claimed 5โ€™9โ€ because thatโ€™s just ridiculous, most Iโ€™d ever claim is 5โ€™7โ€.
TheBat said on 31/Oct/19
Still believe he's 5'5.75". Probably thinks the average is 6'1"+
Andiloveher said on 18/Aug/19
Seems like it's feeling over facts for Ben when it comes to his height.

If anyone ever tried to measure him, I'm sure he would react the same way he reacted to Dr. Phil.

Running away.

I'd give him an honest 5'8 in shoes but 5'9" barefoot is an insane claim.

With peterson the photo was shopped, in the non-shopped one though, a leaning peterson still looks over 4 inches on Ben

@Vikki it is 100% true there were some photos of Peterson and Shapiro that are photo shopped online. They look ridiculous, and make Ben look clearly south of 5 foot tall.

@ William Trotman - You were looking at a photoshopped photo.

@ Duhon - Hard to say exactly from the one photo because of their different postures... Joe looks 1 - 2 cm taller, but he also looks to be standing a little better. I think both guys are roughly 5'7", which is around what Rob thinks too.
Duhon said on 5/Apr/19
Ben and 5'7" Joe Rogan Click Here
William Trotman said on 3/Apr/19
So if Ben Shapiro is somewhere around 5'7" then when is Jordan Peterson (listed at 6'1") getting an upgrade to around 6'7"? The dude is at least a foot taller than Shapiro in a picture I can't link to for some reason, and I see no indication he's wearing six inch heels or standing on some kind of platform.
Dempsey said on 10/Mar/19
Considering 5'9" is probably a 2 inch inflation, that would give him a "true" height of 5'7" - but I have a hunch that he guesstimates this height while in dress shoes. Taking into account a ~1.5" heel (which is pretty standard) that would be ~5'5.5" barefoot. I'd give him a 5'6" flat or maybe a mite less in the morning. 155 pounds is most likely inaccurate. Sounds like he added 15ish pounds.
P.S., Ben For 2020
TheBat said on 7/Mar/19
More like 5'5.75" lol. Ben's 5'9" claim is a literal joke.
TheBat said on 6/Mar/19
It makes me laugh every time that Ben thinks he's 5'9", just an absolute joke of a claim. The more I look at Ben he is about 5'5.75".
Mickie said on 5/Mar/19
When Crowder says 6-2, 2 and a quarter, the "2 and a quarter" is in reference to his weight. He's claiming to be 6'2" and 225 pounds there.
Editor Rob
Yeah that's what it can sound like. He has claimed 220, 218 and 214 pounds on his twitter, but also claimed to have shrunk too...I would give him a solid enough 6ft 2 for his height, but I am not so sure he lost height....
Ian555 said on 3/Mar/19
Rob have you done a page for Steven Crowder? He says he's 6' 2" or 6' 2 1/4" you hear this at the 33:59 mark of this video Click Here. Honestly I think he could be that tall based on this video he towers over almost everyone in the background Click Here. Also I'm curious but do you agree with the things he and Shapiro have to say or do you try not to talk about your political opinions?
Editor Rob
I think he has some views many agree and disagree with.
I've read Crowder mentioning a fraction over 6ft 2 on twitter too, he may well be that mark...the 1/4 figure.
IR said on 26/Feb/19
Ben Shapiro exaggerates about his height, 5' 9", who is he kidding? I heard him quote that he's a " 5' 9" 165 Jewish guy " when confronted by police in a youtube video. Leftist Police THREATENS To Arrest Ben Shapiro, Watch How He Responds ----- he said "You have 30 members of security just for a 5'9" 165 Jewish guy". Referring to himself of course.

Either Shapiro needs a little bit of an upgrade or Bill Maher needs a downgrade (at least on his current height). I can't agree with Shapiro being more than .5" shorter than Maher Click Here
Editor Rob
Certainly Ben seems in 5ft 7 range, but always a chance Bill could be losing a fraction. I never realised he was 62 now.

Bill looks shorter than he used to. He used to have a longer neck and has no neck at all anymore. His entire upper torso seems shorter. I'm surprised that after running this site for so many years that you still only think that a 62 year old might have only lost a fraction? The average man loses 1/3 to 1/4" every decade between 30 and 70 years old Rob and then almost a full inch between 70 and 80. So, at 62 years of age, the average male will have lost between 3/4" and 1".

With Bill Maher and Larry King, I think that's enough proof to give Ben the full 5'7". Remember, Cenk is trying to look taller in the photo with Ben as well. And Jordan Peterson claims 6'1.5".

I'm not arguing over 5'7", just that bang on 5'7" is very fair. He can look 5'8"-ish with Bill Maher (but can look 5'6" range too).

He gives real 5'9" guys a bad rep.
Anonynon said on 27/Oct/18
Are you really sure with 5'6.75"???? Looks lower 5'6", similar to Rand Paul. I just can't see him taller than someone like Jonah Hill for example. Maybe 5'6.5" at most. There's a picture of him with Rand Paul, and although his eyes are above Rand Paul's eyes, his head is smaller, and there's always a chance of him wearing dress shoes that give +1.75.

I think Ben claiming 5ft 9 is possibly a 2-inch inflation.

Mickie said on 26/Aug/18
I'm not even convinced that Trump's hands would measure quite as small as people claim they do. They're probably small for his height, but I can't say I trust the veracity of e-measurements that much (why celebheights is so great).

In any event, I think after seeing him next to Bill Maher, Larry King, and Cenk Uygur that Ben at least deserves to be listed at the full 5'7" and not less than that.
Meiser said on 12/Aug/18
His hands are only slightly bigger than Trump's.
Mickie said on 5/Jul/18
It's true Maher could be sub 5'8" these days. If I was Rob I would list Maher at a "current height" of 5'7.5" and bring Shapiro up by a fraction too.
Peter175 said on 3/Jul/18
At first I thought he was like 5'6 but after seeing him around other people, Imma go with that ambiguous strong 5'7 range that can seem very short at times and other times quite average.

He hasn't looked below this listing to me and has looked nearly 5'8 at times
NotBenShapiro said on 1/Jul/18
On Bill Maher's show he looks taller than Maher. 5'9 seems plausible (especially with his bad posture)

To be honest, I could even see him edging out Maher possibly, but they're basically the same height. No more than a half inch difference either way.

He's 5'5" or 5'6" max. No way he's even close to 5'9". He looks pretty small all the time. 5'9" is not small and people always call him short so yea. I honestly give him under 5'6"
YL07 said on 22/Jun/18
Man, I'm pretty disappointed he claims to be 5'9", when you estimated him to be more of a weak 5'7" guy than a 5'9" guy. That means he wouldn't be able to reach 5'9" in his morning height or sneakers, even 1" sneakers wouldn't cut it. I know I shouldn't judge his height claim if he's trustworthy or not. Now I'm really unsure if I can trust his political views or not, I did caught a few lies from him time to time other than his height. I guess he can be pretty trustworthy sometimes, and sometimes he might lie about a few things or could accidentally misinform us. Oh well, no one is perfect I guess.

lol at him claiming 5'9

no surprise that 5'9 has a wrong repute when so many 5'6 - 5'7 guys claim it

I can imagine also some 5'4-5'5 guys doing that but in general those rather claim 5'7 lol

I am 5'9.25 in the evening and my brother is about 5'8.4 in the evening and I look a little taller next to him especially when we have shoes on because he always wears thin sneakers while I prefer thicker shoes because of my height interest :) and people often guessed me as 5'10.5 - 5'11 in my life

a barefoot 5'9 is not tall but it is a lot taller than many think and it is actually a pretty solid height . I like my height . ideally I would like to fall in the 179cm - 184cm range at night but oh well ...it is how it is

you have to imagine that shapiro claiming 5'9 is as if I would claim 5'11.5

Hambubger, you are imagining things. Cenk has always been listed here as 5'8.25, and Obama is not listed an inch over Trump.
HonestSlovene said on 29/Dec/17
I'd say a weak 5'7" for Shapiro and a decent 5'8" for Cenk seems legit enough. I agree that conservatives are judged a bit harsher (look at the average guess for him), but I think Robs guess of Shapiro would be very close to what he would measure. He always looks 1-2 inches shorter than Cenk in every picture, Alex Jones always looks an inch taller than him though.
hambubger said on 25/Dec/17
There are definitely not two inches between Cenk Uygur, listed here as 5'9", and Shapiro at under 5'7". Another case of this site's bizarre bias against conservatives (the site also has Trump an inch shorter than Obama, when pictures of them together show they are definitely too close in height to call).

That being said, Shapiro is probably actually 5'7" and Cenk 5'8". Or to look at it another way, if Cenk is 5'9" as stated, then Shapiro is 5'8", just 1" shy of his claim.
Marc said on 25/Dec/17
oop did he get an upgrade? I saw you posted Cenk and noticed they had a pic together where he looked not too too far in height so i thought i'd check here again. :P Man i stand 5'8 and am not willing to admit even one inch. ppl would sniff me out
Editor Rob: as I said 4 days ago, I think he can look near 5ft 7 more than 5ft 6.
Rick said on 24/Dec/17
Ok, should have scrolled down before mentioning Ted Cruz, the second picture makes the 5'6 listing more believable.
Rick said on 24/Dec/17
Also there's a picture of him standing next to 5'9 maximum Ted Cruz where there's at least a 4 inch difference between them.
Rick said on 22/Dec/17
I'm surprised he's this tall. Maybe he just has a short body but he always looks like he's standing on a box in photos. Maybe that's where the rumours that he's barely 5'2 come from.
Craig said on 19/Dec/17
@randomuser

How do you explain the many photos of King looking as tall or taller than Seacrest? This just suggests that the estimation of DJ Khaled's height is off. There are other photos of Larry King, like loads with De Niro (all over google images) demonstrating a recent height of at least 5'7.5. Shapiro looks to be about King's height while leaning in. I may be overestimating Shapiro's height, but this listing is a clear underestimation

Paul,

That's a fair point. I'll grant it - but here's Ben with Larry King, and Larry King with Ryan Seacrest, whose height is well documented as between 5'7 and 5'8. King is clearly considerably taller than Seacrest (shoes included), and Shapiro seems to be of similar height to King if not taller:

King could've shrunk between the time of the two photos though. Shapiro seems to be in the 5'8-5'9 range, 5'7.5 at the very least

His rabid fanboys will still claim Ben "rekt" the stadiometer.

Eh, that brief walking clip doesn't really show us anything - the camera is so uneven that the best it shows is that Shapiro and Wallace aren't massively apart in stature. The meme that Shapiro's 5'4 is clearly an exaggeration, but it seems impossible for him to be above this listing.

Besides, no genuine 5'8-5'9 would constantly joke about how short they are...
Craig said on 11/Dec/17
This listing is incorrect

He had an interview with Chris Wallace in which they walk down the hallway side-by-side... he's clearly about or above Wallace's height, and Wallace is no shorter than 5'8" (there are pictures of Wallace with many figures whose heights have been well documented)

Link to video with Wallace: Click Here

He's between 5'8" and 5'9"

At 5'6.5" Ben is not that small! He is not 5'9" though and Trump is not 6'2"!
Marc said on 21/Nov/17
Man I was waiting on this one cuz I had hard time believing 5ft9 I HV a feeling he may give in one day and admit he is a 5"9er if the listing is true it's hard to get away with that
EM said on 19/Nov/17
@randomuser - what in that one low quality photo? Yeah he could look under 5'7" there. Most people have some photos where they look either a little shorter or a little taller than they would measure... Like I say, I haven't seen enough of Ben next to people of known height to make a rock solid conclusion about him. I mean, if Cenk Uygur is really 5'9" you could even say Ben looks closer to 5'8" next to him. As of right now, I think Rand is a strong 5'6", Ben 5'7"-ish, and Cenk a strong 5'8". But I'm open minded.

Ben Shapiro lying about something? No way, I don't believe it.
Editor Rob: to be fair, the Doctor probably called out '5ft 9' but he simply got the 9 and 6 mixed up, so let's not blame Ben for the Doctor's incompetence ๐Ÿ˜


And which doctor might that be? Harold "Six-foot-three 236 lb. Donald J. Trump would be the healthiest President ever elected into office" Bornstein?!?!?!?

As for Ben, I know he's going to be the sort of guy who has fan boys overstating his height and haters understating it. Objectively, I haven't seen enough of him to be sure, but I suspect he could be more 5'7" than 5'6.5".

Sounds like you're one of the fanboys. A full 5'7? No way. He wasn't taller than 5'6 Rand Paul

I am 69.0000 inches out of bed and 174.1cm mid-day. so my 69 inch claim isn't a lie, technically. Wanted to add that.
Adamz said on 16/Nov/17
randomuser said on 27/Oct/17
Needs a downgrade. Here he is with 5'8 Ted Cruz Click Here

He wears lifts to look taller but doesn't have the frame or typical head size of a 5'6.5 guy
Editor Rob: not sure Ted is a 5ft 8 guy...

With Mike Pence he is usually a couple of inches taller, and Pence was measured 5ft 10 in shoes.

I once again agree with Big Rob. I have also seen the ted cruz/ ben pic on google images. I do not think Cruz is 68 icnhes. 70 inches seems more likely than 68.
Adamz said on 16/Nov/17
Look, I donโ€™t think Shapiro really cares about his height that much, but you have people like Milo Yiannopoulos, mentioning his height. Ben probably just googled average height and saw 69 inches is close enough to it and went with that without really caring. Just to mitigate the ridicule during the flame war. I am 174cm 68.5 inches myself and I always just say 69.0 inches because it's frequently regarded as baseline average (or near it) in white western countries like the US, UK and Canada.
Adamz said on 16/Nov/17
Editor Rob: Shapiro doesn't seem like a kind of guy who is wearing anything but normal shoes.

I agree with you, Big Rob.

Iโ€™m very surprised to see Ben is this short, I thought he was rounding up to 5โ€™9 and was 5โ€™8 and change

How are you surprised at all? In every photo/video, he looks short
MJKoP said on 11/Nov/17
Regarding Cenk: I have no qualms giving him the very weak 5'9" he's claimed. Rob has Ana listed as 5'3" and even in her heels, he completely destroys her...for some time, I honestly thought he was the 5'11" to 6'0" he always got listed as. His claim seems very realistic, perhaps even a self-downgrade. Ben was almost positively wearing lifts around Cenk, as they are basically arch rivals AND Ben has a painfully obvious height complex, which he gets constantly ridiculed for. The fact that Cenk(who seems not to give a crap about physical appearance and tends to focus on more important things) was STILL taller than a height-obsessed Ben is almost definitive proof that the barefoot difference would be much greater than what it appeared to be in photographs. Ben - 5'6.5" Cenk - 5'9" or 5'8.75" minimum.
Powerhouse said on 11/Nov/17
Iโ€™m very surprised to see Ben is this short, I thought he was rounding up to 5โ€™9 and was 5โ€™8 and change. This to me is slightly damaging to his validity (im a big fan of his) as it shows how willing he is to exeggerate his own height a great deal, it shows a clear dishonesty.
Peter175 said on 11/Nov/17
Anonymous, I guess that does sound a bit sexist, but how hard is it really to take off your shoes at a doctor's office or just get a measuring tape to find your range? Rounding up an inch is fine and normal, if Ben said he was 5'7 I'd have no qualms with it. But srs 2+ inches is just insane. Where's your dignitiy. I'm inclined to believe that most people know their general height range but just fraud because they're insecure.

Case in point, nearly every 6ft3+ guy I know gives out their honest barefoot height and some will even round down. It's only really men who aren't tall that feel the need to lie about their height
EM said on 10/Nov/17
@Dan - It probably was the angle, yes. Cenk is slightly taller than Ben. If Ben is listed at 5'6.5", Cenk should be listed somewhere in the 5'7" - 5'8" range. Both have claimed 5'9" on a couple occasions.
John said on 10/Nov/17
Too many Ben Shapiro fanboys trying to upgrade him in the comments. 5'6.5 is the absolute max he could be. He is obviously a lift wearer yet his radical rightwing fans in the comments choose to ignore that fact.
Dan said on 10/Nov/17
Wow, I thought he toward over Cenk when I saw their debate online. I guess it must have been the camera angle.
Shredder said on 10/Nov/17
Cenk could be added soon , he looks 5'9.
Editor Rob: he might not be as tall as 5ft 9, possibly 5ft 8
Peter175 said on 10/Nov/17
Rob, I need your help.

What is Ben's height while wearing a pair of dons 4 inch cowboy boots, fresh out of bed from 9 hours of sleep, busting a gut and standing on one leg?
Editor Rob: 5ft 11 and 7/8ths
Anonymous said on 9/Nov/17
With Rand Paul (5'7"), he looks about the same height, maybe a little taller. With Ted Cruz (5'10/11"), he looks about 3.5 inches shorter. This makes Ben Shapiro around 5'7.5". I know it's funny to make fun of height fibbers, but in this case he's not exaggerating by that much. Most people wouldn't exaggerate by over 3 inches, especially considering his public appearances, where one's height can be estimated.
EM said on 9/Nov/17
Shapiro is slightly shorter than Cenk, as Rob says. But they're close enough in height such that If Shapiro is 5'6.5" that means Cenk is also telling a pretty significant fib by claiming 5'9". The difference between them could be around an inch, but there's no chance on God's green earth that it's 2.5".

Yeah I find it hard to respect someone, particularly a male who adds more than half an inch to their height.

1 inch is massive. Like a flat 5'8 claiming to be 5'9, but even worst are the guys who fraud up by 2+ inches. Zayn Malik is a good example. clearly insecure and wants to be taller. Zendaya is the same but its kinda weird for a tallish girl to be obsessed with being tall
******************************************
Why particularly a male? That sounds quite sexist. Anyway, the vast majority of men add more than half an inch to their height. Most people don't know their exact height. It's not fair to judge them and disrespect them simply because they exaggerate their height by an inch
Johan said on 9/Nov/17
Smart guy and I have seen him claim that 5'9" regularly although even in clips I thought he was more 5'7-5"8". He is even under that which is surprising.
Dingus said on 8/Nov/17
The in depth discussion here about Ben Shapiro, Mike Pence, Rand Paul, Cenk Uygur, and Ted Cruz suggests politicians are really insecure about there heights. We can't seem to peg any of these guys height's down or agree on anything. Every time they stand next to each other their height changes. They all clearly use lifts and dress shoes to exaggerate their heights. Whatever they claim, subtract at least 2 inches.
Jim said on 8/Nov/17
Here's how it happens...

Dude think's he's 5'7". Then inflates what he thinks is his height by just 2 inches, thinking he can get away with it.

Always striked me as a taller and more confident guy. Now that's gone. I dunno, people who lies about their height makes me lose my respect for them, it's shows that they are insecure.

He could be a legit five-foot-nine guy claiming five-foot-six-and-a-half, and I'd *still* have zero respect for him. But I probably shouldn't go any further. :X
John said on 8/Nov/17
Correction: on stage he looked far taller than Cenk, but that may well have just been the depth perception. In photos they look the same height, Cenk maybe having half an inch on him. This is far tougher than I thought. He can look 5'9, he can also look 5'6. Shapiro's own father commented on his height saying, "I'm 6'0, Ben is three inches shorter than me,". He might be a lift wearer, I don't know.
EM said on 8/Nov/17
This guy is not this short unless Cenk Uygur is over listed. Both have claimed 5'9", and are quite close in height. Rob, is Cenk only 5'7"?
Editor Rob: he looks shorter than Cenk, how much is debatable.

His 5'09" claim is clearly exaggerated. Supposedly there is a picture of him standing next to the 5'08" Ted Cruz where he got dwarfed by 3-5 inches.

Very self-conscious about his height, and tries desperately to compensate for it in other ways. Ironically, Napoleon is also listed at 5'6.5"....though unfortunately for 'not-so-Big Ben', Mr. Bonaparte was at least a solid average at his time and in his region, while B.S.(nice initials, hehe) is comfortably under.

I got my drivers license recently; I'm only 16. I'd say I'm 5'7" on a really good day, though I'm not entirely sure my exact midday height as I'm still growing and don't have any proper measuring techniques. Regardless, I thought about inflating my height to 5'9" since guys like Ben Shapiro do. But I cannot comprehend how anyone could be convinced I'm 5'9" simply by a license listing, so I went with 5'7". This guy...
randomuser said on 1/Nov/17
Do you think he's lying about his weight (155) as well? He looks very skinny and far from "ripped". I would say he is 130 lbs, maybe less
Editor Rob: I think probably adding a few pounds to his weight, but looks heavier than 130 range.
randomuser said on 1/Nov/17
If he really believes he is 5'9, then he probably thinks the average height is 6'1
John said on 31/Oct/17
How do you explain the photo with Cruz? Cruz is definitely below 6'0 and there is no way a 5'6.5 guy would look that short next to an average height dude like Cruz.
Editor Rob: he can look near 4 inches smaller than Cruz, but then Cruz can look 2-2.5 inches taller than 'measured 5ft 10' Mike Pence.

His claim of being a strapping 5'9" is the funniest thing he's ever come out with. Looks like he is adding at least 2 inches to his claim, maybe even 3 inches.
