The crazy train flew off the tracks just five minutes into Tuesday’s Hardball, thanks to host Chris Matthews inviting on HBO’s Real Time host Bill Maher for roughly 10 minutes of banter about the President, the Russia investigation, and how neither believe the President will leave on his own terms and perhaps not even then. Matthews began by lamenting that Maher has been off for some time (since November) and asking what he made of “this massacre of democracy” by a President whom the media have been wondering “whether he's a Russian agent.”
It turns out there are still a few good-humored, politically-incorrect folks in Hollywood after all. Over the weekend, lefty-bashing street artist provocateurs publicly slammed HBO’s Bill Maher with a satirical billboard depicting him not as the thought leader he imagines himself to be, but as a rote purveyor of mainstream liberal propaganda. Specifically he was made fun of as being an “NPC.”
When a man dies, you’re not obligated to celebrate his life, but you shouldn’t denigrate it, either (Fidel Castro excepted). And it’s really counterproductive to take cheap shots while trying to convince people of your maturity.
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, the eponymous host sat down with Garry Kasparov, co-author of a new book called Fight For Liberty: Defending Democracy in the Age of Trump. Kasparov asserted that President Trump’s re-election would signal the “demise of democracy.” Maher agreed, predicting that Trump is “not going to leave even if he loses the election,” kind of an ironic point to make as Democrats across the country refuse to concede in a series of elections where they have no path to victory.
Imagine this scenario -- in the wake of yet another mass shooting by yet another lunatic who should have been committed but wasn't thanks to decades-long work by the ACLU, a celebrity known for his or her conservative views -- Jon Voight, for example, or Angie Harmon -- tells a reporter that he or she has decided to buy a gun for protection. The histrionics from the left would be swift and predictably cliched ... The last thing we need is more people with guns! ... You're part of the problem, not the solution! ... Support the right to arm bears!
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, the eponymous host spoke with comic Sarah Silverman, who recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Commenting on her achievement, Silverman remarked “in a time...where anti-Semitic crime is up 57 percent since this douche bag has taken office, it is not lost on me that I am very lucky that I get a star and don’t have to sew it on my clothes,” a reference to the Star of David sewn on the clothes of Jews in Nazi concentration camps.
Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman is really pulling out all the stops for its last few episodes this year. After disparaging the GOP, smearing Kavanaugh, and demeaning Jesus Christ, she finally lets out all her feelings regarding "human garbage" Donald Trump - at least until next week. Leftist comedian Bill Maher is also on hand to dub Trump "the worst human."
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, the eponymous host engaged in quite a bit of hyperbole as he attempted to convince America’s youth to vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections. In a stream of consciousness lasting less than five minutes, Maher compared the Trump family to the Hussein family, described the Trump Presidency as a “slow-moving coup,” and suggested that President Trump might actually be worse than Adolf Hitler.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, longtime NBC presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin cracked that maybe the U.S. should have let the South go as she and host Maher fretted over U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's popularity in red states. She even invoked the infamous caning of abolitionist Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner in 1856 that made South Carolina Congressman Preston Brooks popular in slave states and foreshadowed the Civil War.
On Sam Harris's "Waking Up" podcast, Bill Maher says that when it comes to immigration, "'Steve Bannon and I share some ideas." Harris and Maher also criticize the liberal media's dishonest coverage of Muslim immigration issues.
On Friday's Real Time show, liberal HBO comedian Bill Maher made gay jokes about Senator Senator Lindsey Graham, including one in which he suggested that the South Carolina Republican needs his "dead boyfriend," John McCain, to make him stand up to President Donald Trump.
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, most of the panel had few kind things to say about Republicans and conservatives. Panelist Thom Hartmann referred to them as “rubes” while host Bill Maher described them as “stupid and racist.”
