Bill Maher Compares Senator Mitch McConnell to Newtown Mass Murderer Adam Lanza

There clearly is no floor to how low Bill Maher will go to attack conservatives.

On HBO’s Real Time Friday, the host actually compared Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to Newtown, Connecticut, mass murderer Adam Lanza (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

At the beginning of his New Rule segment, Maher said, “New rule: both sides of the gun control debate have to come together to agree that you can't sell firearms or ammunition to anyone who looks like this.”

A picture of a very wide-eyed Adam Lanza was displayed:

"It won't stop every desperate loser with a chip on his shoulder,” Maher continued, “but it will keep guns out of the hands of Mitch McConnell."

Then this picture was shown on the screen:

Imagine the media's outrage if a conservative host made a similar comparison equating Lanza to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for example:

Or First Lady Michelle Obama:

Or - dare I say it? - President Barack Obama:

The left and their media minions including Maher would be up in arms demanding an apology.

But a liberal comparing McConnell to a mass murderer?

Totally acceptable.
