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.
HBO host and liberal comedian Bill Maher has long claimed that he is “politically incorrect” even though his “jokes” and actions have shown he’s definitely a liberal Democrat. That hypocrisy was in full view while he was a guest on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time weeknight program on Monday, when he stated that “a lot of this far-left political correctness is a cancer on progressivism” and said that Trump supporters like the President in part because “he’s not politically correct.”
We always knew that far-left HBO host Bill Maher was cynical, but every now and then he reveals just how cynical. Appearing on Cuomo Prime Time, Monday, Maher admitted that Hillary Clinton was a “terrible” candidate who “obstructed justice” with her secretive handling of e-mails. Quite a contrast to what he said in 2016 about the noble “wonk” who only used a private server for efficiency.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal CNN contributor and New York Times columist Charles Blow complained that journalists should not ask Democrats if their gun control plans would actually have prevented a particular mass shooting, even though they themselves regularly start off by implying that there would be such an effect in the aftermath of high-profile shootings.
Every once in a while, or nowadays at least once per week, a person will see a monologue from a far-left late night host and cringe at its vitriol . Bill Maher provided such a moment on Friday night’s episode of Real Time with an explicit rant against President Trump and his trip to Great Britain.
Not surprisingly, Bill Maher and his panel had few kind words to say about President Trump and his base on Friday’s edition of Real Time. While Maher joked about President Trump executing his negotiating team, New York Times columnist Charles Blow contrasted the President’s base with “the rest of us who are sane.”
How extreme is Bill Maher? The Real Time host gets really angry when anyone says something nice about Ronald Reagan. And it was six years ago yesterday that Maher melted down, trashing the “race-baiting” two term president as “the man most responsible for our decline.” What set Maher off? Other liberals saying that the current GOP is so extreme, it’s too conservative for even Reagan. On June 7, 2013, he sputtered, “: Ronald Reagan was an anti-government, union-busting, race-baiting, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-intellectual."
Donald Trump may be the most hated president in Hollywood since...well...ever. In the last month celebrities from Bill Maher to Cher have wished the worst, most vile things on the current president. The following is just a sampling of the worst outbursts (this past month) from Hollywood:
On Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher took shots at Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who gave a press conference earlier in the week declaring that “If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that.” While many in the media have taken that statement as an invitation for Congress to impeach President Trump, Maher took a page out of Trevor Noah’s playbook and made light of Mueller’s remarks.
On Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher devoted part of his closing monologue to trashing Attorney General Bill Barr. While the attack on Barr was probably expected, few could have predicted that the HBO host would use Barr as a pretense to tear into his religion, which Maher referred to as the “cult” of Catholicism.
Just two and a half years after fantasizing about a retroactive abortion for then-Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence, author Fran Lebowitz offered up more outrageous commentary on Friday’s edition of Real Time. This time, Lebowitz shared her desire that the Saudis murder President Trump.
Unofficially, Hollywood seems to have chosen its candidate. And while that may be an an ambitious claim at this stage in the 2020 race, it only reflects the insane amount of support Hollywood bigwigs are showing to Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana. ABC news ran a story on how just starstruck celebs and heavyweight producers are with Buttigieg, claiming he’s everything they’ve ever dreamed of — the “unicorn candidate.”
