Lefty HBO host John Oliver lashed out at Jay Leno on Sunday, trashing the former Tonight Show star after he called for more balance in political comedy. Instead of focusing on Leno’s call for more fairness, Oliver attacked the comedian as a hypocrite. In a segment on public shaming and Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, the Last Week Tonight host noted that some comics regret their ‘90s jokes about the White House intern: “Many comedians have since publicly expressed regret about things they've said, although one who hasn't, and who was among the most relentless, was Jay Leno.”
The Michael Jackson documentary “Leaving Neverland” came up on Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher. The documentary reflects very negatively on the King of Pop, who spent much of the second half of his life facing allegations of pedophilia. Not surprisingly, Maher and the liberals on his panel could not resist comparing Jackson to their least favorite person on Earth: President Trump.
HBO anchor John Oliver may be your standard entertainment liberal, but even he can see the awfulness in the way ex-Today host Matt Lauer treated women. In a segment deriding psychics as the low rent scam artists, the Last Week Tonight host mocked Lauer as “sophisticated Manhattan sex monster.”
According to Time Magazine, Veep star and former Seinfeld leading lady is a shining beacon of Hollywood feminine power, because — yeah you get it — she’s funny, beautiful, doesn’t take crap from no man, and has all the right liberal heroes. Oh and she also thinks Trump’s a “moron” too. This is the kind of stuff that gives her that “America’s Sweetheart” quality.
Bill Maher had no problem working an insult against middle America into his opening monologue during the Friday night edition of Real Time. Maher talked about Jussie Smollett and how “he paid two men $3500 to assault him for being black and gay, something he could have gotten for free in Texas.”
On Friday’s Real Time, host Bill Maher talked about Christopher Paul Hasson, the Coast Guard lieutenant arrested for allegedly planning a domestic attack on liberal politicians and media figures.

Phony racially-motivated attacks and Democrats being caught in blackface were just some of the controversies that liberal journalists and celerities actually blamed on Donald Trump and his Wall-endorsing, red hat-wearing, supporters this past month.
Hard-left HBO host John Oliver went on an anti-Brexit rant, Sunday, seething about stupid voters who allowed the country to vote against the European Union. He also featured a profanity-laced tirade from a Winston Churchill impersonator, mocking his home country: “We haven’t begun to f**k ourselves!”
If you grew tired of seeing Beto O’Rourke’s goofy grin everywhere during the 2018 midterm election cycle, then you’re in for a little more lefty superhero fatigue. HBO recently announced that it will be releasing a Beto O’Rourke documentary about the former punk rocker turned political “rockstar’s” failed Texas senatorial candidacy, giving viewers “intimate access” to his 2018 campaign.
Entertainment TV is far worse than news when it comes to progressive bias and hatred for conservative people and views. A cross section of nightly programming on major networks, cable TV or popular streaming services is loaded with anti-conservative, anti-Trump propaganda.

During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, the eponymous host concluded his satirical segment “new rules” with a lecture to potential independent 2020 candidate Howard Schultz; which basically ended up as a five-minute monologue trashing the Republican Party. At one point in the monologue, Maher asserted that “if you drew a Venn diagram of insane and 21st Century Republican, it would be a circle.”
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, the eponymous host interviewed Congressman Will Hurd, a Republican from Texas, who disagrees with President Trump about the necessity of a border wall. Through the course of the exchange, Maher invoked a stereotype about African-Americans in front of the Congressman and tried to get him to agree that President Trump was “the biggest security threat to the United States.”
