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.
On Real Time Friday, host Bill Maher closed his satirical segment “New Rules” by urging First Lady Melania Trump to dump the President, arguing that her doing so would enable President Trump to “implode on his own.” Maher also encouraged Rupert Murdoch’s wife, Jerry Hall, to do the same before describing Fox News as an “axis of evil” and comparing the Trump base to “an army of brain-dead zombies.”
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher was showing his unpatriotic side as he not only declared that the military budget should be cut in half, but he also griped about the tradition of playing God Bless America at sporting events that began after the 9/11 attacks.
An interview with Bob Costas on Friday’s edition of Real Time started out about sports but not surprisingly, it did not take long for the discussion to turn political. At first, the conversation focused on Colin Kaepernick, with Costas and host Bill Maher speaking favorably about the controversial former quarterback. Eventually, the conversation turned to political correctness; with the majority of the panel taking the view that an obsession with judging historical figures by today’s standards leads to a slippery slope.
During the final portion of his satirical segment “New Rules,” Real Time host Bill Maher tore into Special Counsel Robert Mueller for not recommending an indictment against President Trump and slammed his investigation as “one feckless punt after another.” As Maher rolled out his final “new rule,” a chyron with the phrase “Bob Cost Us” appeared at the bottom of the screen; a play on the names of one of his guests for the evening, former NBC sportscaster Bob Costas.
On Friday's Real Time show, HBO comedian Bill Maher ended his show with a commentary celebrating reports that young Americans have less sex and produce fewer children than past generations. As he argued that humans hurt the environment, he concluded that it would be better for Earth for more people to "not have kids, die and stay dead."
March provided television viewers and streaming platform binge-watchers another heavy dose of Trump hate. At least another 40 separate entertainment programs, on major networks, cable TV, and popular streaming platforms continued their vicious anti-Trump propaganda. What once might have been shocking is all too commonplace for a media in the later stages of Trump Derangement syndrome.
Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher contained the usual amount of anti-Trump venom one would expect from the HBO program. Maher suggested that the President has dementia while guest Chelsea Handler talked about how President Trump caused her to have a “midlife identity crisis” and fantasized about a sexual relationship with Special Counsel Robert Mueller; echoing a comment she had previously made on Twitter.
Real Time host Bill Maher closed his satirical segment “New Rules” Friday with a public service announcement for socialism that would have made Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proud. Why? It's because he favorably described socialism as “capitalism plus” before lamenting that “our system kind of sucks.”
Bill Maher doubled-down on Friday night, unwilling to accept Robert Mueller’s conclusion that Trump did not collude with Russia. He joked about how Mueller is really married to Roger Stone who is a Russian-speaking operative, all before contending “this is a high-tech coup” and smearing Attorney General William Barr as “a stooge.” Maher asserted: “This is what Third World countries do. The dictator appoints somebody who exonerates him.”
On Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher and his panel joined a long list of liberal media figures upset about the results of the Mueller report. Maher ended up dismissing the Mueller report altogether, arguing “I don’t need the Mueller report to know he’s a traitor. I have a TV.”
