    Crowder did everything he could think of to try and throw the kid ( Yusef?) off his game including getting the young man's personal space. Crowder was clearly frustrated because the guy understood the subject way better than Crowder. Yusef kept his cool and even called him out on it at the end of the clip, "I think you're just getting mad because you're losing the debate."

    The big thing I noticed is that the kid never really got to finish a point he was making because the other guy controlled the mike and kept interrupting and controlling the exchange.

    Okay interesting. While I do enjoy hearing this Ben dude debate sometimes for the fun of it, but I do think smugness, while entertaining to see it displayed against other annoying or pretentious debaters, can be a very dangerous thing to have in a debate.

    Crowder did everything he could think of to try and throw the kid ( Yusef?) off his game including getting the young man's personal space. Crowder was clearly frustrated because the guy understood the subject way better than Crowder. Yusef kept his cool and even called him out on it at the end of the clip, "I think you're just getting mad because you're losing the debate."

    Okay that was nice (though I didn't see Crowder get all angry and emotional), but I was hoping to find more examples on the other side of the pond or something less political.
