Maher Turns on Obama: ‘He Doesn't Even Know What the IRS and the Justice Department Are Doing’

Stop the presses! Stop the presses!

It appears that even HBO’s Bill Maher is starting to question Barack Obama’s abilities as president, for on Friday’s Real Time, the host said, “He doesn't even know what the IRS and the Justice Department are doing” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

BILL MAHER: In other white powder political news, someone again sent deadly, the deadly poison ricin to President Obama through the mail. These dumb asses. Do they really think Obama opens his own mail? He doesn't even know what the IRS and the Justice Department are doing. He's opening his own mail? I mean, I hate to keep, I hate to keep saying that Americans are stupid and lazy, but, I mean, is there any lamer assassination attempt than sending wannabe poison through the mail? What was plan B - hoping Chris Christie falls on him?


Now let’s make it perfectly clear: Bill Maher is no Walter Cronkite.

However, amongst all the Obama-lovers in the media – and there certainly are plenty – Maher was the one that really put his money where his mouth is by ponying up $1 million for the President’s re-election campaign.

If less than five months into Obama’s second term Maher is having a change of heart, it could be a very long three and a half years for the current White House resident.

Stay tuned.
