Bill Maher Uses Trayvon Martin Issue to Attack...Michele Bachmann?
Bill Maher on Friday actually used the Trayvon Martin issue to attack Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn).
In his HBO Real Time opening monologue, the host said of Congressman Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) wearing a hoodie on the House floor, "Too scary? Have you ever looked into Michele Bachmann's eyes?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
BILL MAHER: And also, Congressman, African-American Congressman Bobby Rush (D-Il.) wore a hoodie on the floor of Congress to make a point this week and yeah, they threw him out. They said, “A hoodie - too scary for Congress.” Too scary? Have you ever looked into Michele Bachmann's eyes?
The idiots in the audience predictably laughed and applauded.
You see, this is what qualifies as comedy on HBO.
When in doubt, attack a conservative woman.
This is what's considered enlightened thinking by the holier-than-thou, open-minded, compassionate Left.
