Bill Maher: 'America's Like A Dog - You Can't Actually Explain Issues To It'

HBO's Bill Maher is clearly still reeling from the Democrat disaster in the midterm elections.

On Friday's "Real Time," the host compared America to a dog that "cannot understand actual words," only "understands fear," and can't have issues explained to it (video follows with transcript and commentary):

BILL MAHER, HOST: Well, that idea that America will see, America doesn't pay attention or see. You have to -- America’s like a dog. I'm sorry, but it is. You, it cannot understand actual words. It understands inflection. It understands fear. But you can't actually explain issues to a dog.

It's amazing to watch how liberal media members think, isn't it?

When Americans voted into the White House an unqualified, inexperienced junior senator from Illinois largely because they fell in love with the idea of the country finally having a black president, the citizenry was brilliant.

But when they voted out of office members of Congress because the unemployment rate is near ten percent and they're worried about their futures as well as the direction of the country, Americans are idiots.

As for as Maher is concerned, people are only smart if they behave exactly like him.
