Bill Maher's HBO program might be on hiatus, but that doesn't stop the Obama-supporter from making inflammatory remarks about other Americans.
At his blog Friday, Maher wrote that the President should use the current budget crisis to implement a carbon tax as a "personal f--k you to the Koch brothers":
Since we're looking for new revenue streams that aren't income taxes, Obama should use this budget crisis -- if you can call it that -- to do something about global warming with a carbon tax. This may be his last and only chance to do something big since cap and trade didn't work. And it would be just desserts for the oil and coal industries that went all in for Mitt Romney, a nice little personal f--k you to the Koch brothers.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: any time Maher wants to debate the theory of anthropogenic global warming, I'd be more than happy to oblige him.
Frankly, I doubt he even knows what the theory is.
As for defaming the Koch brothers - some of our nation's top employers as well as leading philanthropists - Maher is no stranger to besmirching fellow Americans.
Here are some examples just from this year:
- Bill Maher Tells Sean Hannity To Commit Suicide
- Bill Maher: 'John Sununu Is a Racist Fat F--k'
- Bill Maher Calls Mitt Romney 'F--king Loser'
- Bill Maher: Was Scott Walker the Mentally Retarded Banjo Boy in 'Deliverance'?
Yes, no stranger to vulgar attacks is he.
But what's also funny is Maher giving anyone budget advice given his troubles with anything that requires knowledge of simple arithmetic:
- Staggering Ignorance From Bill Maher: 'We Spend 42% of Our Total Budget on Defense'
- Bill Maher and Nobel Prize Winning Liberal Economist Can't Figure Out What 87 Times 5 Is
- Bill Maher Gets Schooled on U.S. Corporate Profits By African Economist
- Dunce Bill Maher: U.S. Is Fifth Worst in the World in Income Inequality
- Maher Says Ending Bush Tax Cuts Would Solve 75% of Budget Deficit
- Maher: Romney 'Only Paid 11% In Taxes'
- Idiocy Alert: Bill Maher Falsely Claims Bush Tax Cuts Gave Rich $2.8 Trillion
No, Maher is certainly not someone that should be giving budget advice.
