Appearing as a panel member on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, MSNBC contributor and former talk radio host Charlie Sykes displayed the latest example of why he is the type of right-leaning figure that liberal outfits like MSNBC include who will join liberal analysts in bashing Republicans. Sykes took aim at Fox News supposedly not informing its Republican-leaning viewers on the nefarious activities of President Donald Trump, and likened conservatives to a "cult" that always supports "Dear Leader" and "Orange Deuce."


Al Franken, the so-called ‘Giant of the Senate,’ can’t be seen with Bill Maher. It might ruin his public persona. The senator for Minnesota cancelled his Friday appearance amid the scandal surrounding the HBO star’s use of the n word that occurred while Republican Senator Ben Sasse was on his show. Does Franken think the same thing will happen to him?

Monday on The View, hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg defended and downplayed two left-wing comedians who got into hot water this past week. After Kathy Griffin posed in a photo with a bloodied, severed head of the president, and then later played the victim after being called out for the egregious display, HBO Real Time host Bill Maher caused outrage after using the “N-word” during an interview with Senator Ben Sasse on his Friday show. Despite both cases receiving bipartisan backlash, the radically liberal hosts on The View actually defended both comedians’ actions.


On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher took his latest opportunity to joke about the death of a prominent conservative as he recalled the passing of Fox News founder Roger Ailes. After some audience members immediately cheered and applauded the news, Maher went on to call it "comeuppance" and mocked the idea that one is not supposed to speak ill of those  who have just died as he accused Ailes of "making old white Americans more frightened and more ill-informed."


On Friday's Real Time on HBO, far left comedian Bill Maher hyperbolically likened Syrian dictator Bashar Assad gassing people to death with chemical weapons to the United States "gassing them" "slower with CO2" as he fretted over global warming. He also mocked Republicans as "stupid" for not believing in global warming, and, as he interviewed author Hanna Rosin, he lambasted men as "whiny little bitches."


On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher demonized newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch as a "right-wing asshole," a "Scalia clone," and someone who "has never shown any empathy toward a human being" before suggesting that "back alley abortions" might return. He also accused Republicans of "cheating" to get him onto the Court, and of being motivated by racism in refusing to support former President Barack Obama's call for military action in Syria in 2013.


Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's Tavis Smiley show on PBS, far-left journalist Jeremy Scahill of The Intercept argued that he is opposed to giving "fascists" a forum in which to debate people like himself. Then, after defining "fascists" as people who "want the extermination" of blacks and Jews, he hyperbolically claimed that fascists are "being normalized" by President Donald Trump. Scahill: "These are people who -- when we're talking about fascists -- want the extermination of black people...."


On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, far-left comedian Bill Maher made plenty of room for crass and hyperbolic attacks on President Donald Trump. The show featured everything from incest jokes about Ivanka Trump to offering a serious warning that President Trump might follow Adolf Hitler's lead in bringing "fascism" to America after a terrorist attack reminiscent of the burning of the Germany Reichstag building in the 1930s.


Don't hold your breath waiting for MSNBC's Rachel Maddow to trumpet her next scoop, assuming the next time it's actually hers and not someone else's. In the wake of Maddow's is that all there is? report about Donald Trump's 2005 tax return that revealed the not at all shocking news that Trump was actually quite wealthy, at least as of a decade ago, and also paid tens of millions in federal income taxes, the backlash from both sides of the divide has been furious.


Far-left comedian Bill Maher on Tuesday derided war widow Carryn Owens for allowing herself to be Donald Trump’s “prop” in his speech to Congress. Regarding the wife of the Navy SEAL, Maher sneered, “First of all, I wish she hadn't allowed herself to be used as his prop like that. And I don't see any great courage here. Where is the courage?” 


On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, during a discussion of recent leaks from the intelligence community that have been damaging to the Donald Trump administration, liberal host Maher not only suggested that American intelligence agencies are trying to protect the U.S. from a "coup" by President Trump, but he even theorized that such government agencies were behind President John F. Kennedy's assassination because he was having sex with communist spies.


On Friday's Real Time on HBO, host Bill Maher made crude incest jokes about President Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka, and, a bit later, got into a heated debate with former liberal CNN host Piers Morgan about whether there has been a substantial increase in violent crime over the past couple of years as the liberal comedian cited a chart that only included crime through 2015 and omitted the most recent figures. Maher further demonstrated his show's difficulty in providing accurate information to viewers as Morgan also called him out for criticizing the recent attack on a terrorist target in Yemen as a failure when, in fact, 12 al-Qaeda operatives were killed.
