Real Time host Bill Maher doubled down on his desire for a recession Friday night. Maher has expressed his wish for a recession multiple times; hoping that an economic downturn would lead to President Trump losing his bid for a second term in the White House.



On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher called out both anti-Israel liberals and the media for ignoring the deeply embedded anti-Semitism in the Middle East that has thwarted attempts to make a peace agreement between Israel and Palestinian Arabs.



During Thursday’s The Story, FNC host Martha MacCallum reported that “fears of a recession seem to be running high and some in the media seem almost giddy that an economic downturn would hinder President Trump’s chances in 2020.” After playing a “sampling” of media figures weighing in on the effect of a recession on President Trump’s re-election bid, MacCallum slammed the “unpatriotic” and “inhumane” media for rooting for a recession in the hopes that an economic downturn will cause him to lose re-election.



Even though some high-profile experts claim the U.S. is not headed for a recession right now, the liberal news media continued to promote economic pessimism during the summer of 2019.

Despite 3.7 percent (near record-low) unemployment, wage gains, confident consumers and growing economy, liberal journalists obsessed over recession every single day of June and July.



Not surprisingly, Real Time host Bill Maher devoted his opening monologue Friday night to trashing President Trump and blaming him in light of last weekend's mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. Maher implied that President Trump received a “story by” credit for the massacre in the killer’s manifesto. Maher began by talking about how El Paso and Dayton are “still reeling from two disasters: a mass shooting, and a Trump visit.”



While Bill Maher’s closing monologue on Friday’s edition of Real Time included the usual jabs at President Trump, it also provided Democrats with a reality check. Maher’s commentary focused on “Trump fatigue” and warned that the only thing that can nullify it is an embrace of far-left ideas outside of the mainstream.



Every once in a blue moon, there is a member of the leftist media mob who is willing to stand up and state an irrefutable truth. For all of the left-wing propaganda talking points Bill Maher has up his sleeve, he exemplified a rare moment of self-reflection on his party during Friday night’s Real Time. Maher began his show by having the guts to be intellectually honest about the behavior of the Democratic primary candidates, specifically Julian Castro’s ludicrous claim about transgender women.



During Friday’s Real Time, HBO host Bill Maher and his panel weighed in on the first Democratic debates, so not surprisingly, it did not take long for the guests to start trashing President Trump, calling him an “overt enemy of liberal democracy” and claiming there’s “concentration camps” at the border. Believe it or not, Maher had the most rational analysis; repeatedly calling out his liberal guests for their double standards.



It seems as of late, the preferred tactic among liberals and the media is to brand any policy idea that they fundamentally disagree with as on par with the atrocity of the Holocaust. From CNN host Don Lemon comparing President Trump to Hitler to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez referring to detention centers on the southern border as “concentration camps.” While many rush to condemn these outlandish claims, others have the temerity to defend them.

 



On Real Time Friday, host Bill Maher closed his “New Rules” segment by pleading with Oprah Winfrey to run for President of the United States. While the longtime talk show host has faded from the political scene since stumping for Democrat Stacey Abrams to the delight of the liberal media, Maher apparently hoped his monologue would cause Winfrey to reconsider her decision not to seek the White House in 2020.

 



Bill Maher satisfied his starvation for the limelight on Friday night’s Real Time by fixating the audience on his obsessive disdain for President Trump and the Republican Party as a whole.



On Friday's Real Time on HBO, during the show's closing commentary, host Bill Maher derided the Republican party as the "a**hole dad party" that, under President Donald Trump, acts irresponsibly and does not care about the future on issues like climate change.
