‘All About Dave’: Quillette

The tragic rise of former liberal, comedian, and Angeleno, Dave Rubin

Untitled

To his friends, Rubin is loyal but sensitive about it. To strangers, he is charismatic and charming. And to those he disagrees with or who have slighted him, he is a vindictive, reactionary bully. As his friends privately admit, he is psychologically ill-equipped for the position in which he has found himself. The story of his meteoric rise to fame is, finally, a strangely tragic one. He is Faust’s Republican, the fallen clown, and the definition of the kind of elitist he has always most despised—hypersensitive, hyper-partisan, and failing upwards.
