Appearing as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, liberal Republican CNN contributor Margaret Hoover advocated voting for Democratic candidates against pro-Donald Trump Republicans, and proclaimed that Democrats "deserve" to "have a heyday in November."
Far-left HBO host Bill Maher admitted on Friday he’s rooting for an economic disaster, but most media outlets have been silent in response to his shocking comments. In contrast, journalists pounced on Rush Limbaugh’s 2009 comments on Barack Obama’s liberal agenda: “I hope he fails.”
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, host Bill Maher told his Trump-hating audience and his fellow panelists that he would like to see the economy fail if it means the end of President Trump: “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is to crash the economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”
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."
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of the controversy over TBS host Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c***," and Roseanne Barr comparing former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape, CNN.com contributor Dean Obeidallah came to the liberal Bee's defense, lauding her as "an important voice." And, in response to conservative talk radio host Stacy Washington complaining about the double standard of liberal comedians Bill Maher and Joy Behar being tolerated when they attack conservatives, host Don Lemon defended Behar for recently painting Christians as mentally ill.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher and his guests made a number of incendiary comments about conservatives, including Maher joking that HIV is "what you (Donald Trump) get for sleeping with" Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Michelle Wolf is not the first so-called comic to maliciously insult conservatives and Republicans at a White House Correspondents' Association dinner, but she was intentionally mean-spirited, and even after the blowback, she's unrepentant. Members of the liberal mainstream media have expressed disapproval over some of Wolf's comments, saying she went too far. But I'm not buying it. This is what passes as liberal humor these days. Just watch Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert and tell me their humor is less malevolent.
Given the fact that thousands of New Yorkers -- including many Democratic voters -- are alive today because, in the 1990s, then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani dramatically cut the number of homicides in the city from about 2,000 to just around 600 a year, one would think he would be the one Republican that some liberals would have some respect for. But on his HBO show on Friday, far-left comedian Bill Maher likened him to Dracula and excoriated both Giuliani and President Donald Trump as being part of New York's "rat problem."
It’s the classic tool of the provocateur: when all else fails, make fun of religion.
The liberal Daily Beast website broke out in protest over a lack of decency on HBO...as if their decency was their reputation. The headline was "Bill Maher Cruelly Mocks Donald Trump Jr. Over His Divorce: The Real Time host was the only late-night comedian to tackle the unfortunate news." They even added the word "SAD" over the top for extra scolding.
Avi Selk, reporter for the Washington Post, callously suggested that liberal iconoclast and New York Times editorial writer Bari Weiss was getting what was coming to her in terms of online obloquy for her crimes against left-wing hyper-sensitivity The headline to the Arts & Entertainment “analysis” piece was even worse than the text: “A New York Times columnist blamed a far-left ‘mob’ for her woes. But maybe she deserves them.” Weiss deserved being called a racist and getting death wishes on Twitter?
As historian and MSNBC contributor Jon Meacham appeared as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, he repeatedly made references to racist public figures or groups from history like George Wallace and the KKK as he discussed modern-day political battles and President Donald Trump. At one point, he lectured about American history: "But the forces the President embodies -- and the forces that he marshaled and managed to become President -- are perennial ones. The American spirit isn't just about Martin Luther King Jr.-- it's also about the Klan. And the battle is between those two."
