Maher on HBO: 'F**king Cracker' Trump Voters 'Hate Black People'

On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher was, in his words, doing his "greatest hits" in making incendiary comments about President Donald Trump and his family.

The liberal comedian suggested that President Trump likes to "talk dirty" about his daughter Ivanka, derided Donald Trump Jr. as "Douchebag Von F**kface," claimed Trump supporters "hate" blacks, and belittled white Trump voters as "f**king crackers."

In the show's opening monologue, Maher made his latest Trump incest joke as he referred to TBS comedian Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c***." Maher: "Trump was furious. He said, 'I am the only one who gets to talk dirty about my daughter.' Boy was he mad about that word -- not 'c***,' 'feckless.'"

During the panel segment, during a discussion of white voters diminishing as a proportion of the U.S. population, Maher countered that there were still enough white voters to elect Trump, and added:

And Trump looked around and went, "You know what, I still see a lot of white people out there. I still see -- America still has a lot of f**king crackers, and I'm going to go after each and every one of them."

A bit later, as the liberal host fretted that President Trump is "above the law," he took aim at Donald Trump Jr. as he added: "But there's something even scarier than that -- his son, Don Jr., who I call 'Douchebag Von F**kface.'"

Panel member Bret Stephens -- MSNBC Republican analyst and alleged conservative columnist for the New York Times -- was notably cracked up and laughed hysterically at the crass joke.

After pausing for audience laughter, Maher added: "I'm doing all my greatest hits tonight."

During a discussion of Roseanne Barr's racist tweet that led to her firing by ABC, Maher made his latest charge of racism against Trump voters: "I always said about the Trump people, there's two things they hate: being called a racist, and black people."

A bit later, as liberal CNN commentator Paul Begala recalled that past Republican Presidents had made a point of condemning racists, he brought up the story of President Ronald Reagan visiting a black family who were targeted by the Ku Klux Klan.

Begala recalled: "But when a Klansman burned a cross at a family's home in Maryland, Ronald Reagan went to their house the same day. He saw it in the paper, and he went over there."

Liberal author Charlamagne Tha God jumped in to crack: "For what? To celebrate?"

Maher then vaguely alluded to the discredited claim that Reagan began his 1980 presidential campaign at the site of an infamous racist murder to send a dog whistle to Southern racists.

After Maher recalled, "Reagan also started his campaign purposely in Philadelphia (Mississippi)," Begala added: "In Neshoba County, I know. He has a complicated history."

In fact, Reagan -- who announced his candidacy for President in November 1979 -- had been campaigning for eight months when he appeared at the Mississippi state fair in August 1980, several weeks after the Republican National Convention.

And the appearance -- in which he mentioned states' rights while discussing economic, not racial, issues -- was not even his first campaign event after the convention since he had already made five other appearances. But the disproven myth is one that liberal commentators in the dominant media repeatedly parrot.
