UPDATE AT END OF POST: Hannity responds.

Bill Maher on Friday told Fox News’s Sean Hannity to commit suicide.

This occurred on HBO’s Real Time as the host discussed the Florida man who allegedly killed himself last week as a result of Barack Obama’s re-election (video follows with transcript and commentary):

A war broke out on the set of HBO’s Real Time Friday when MSNBC’s sole conservative commentator S.E. Cupp had the nerve to say that Barack Obama’s foreign policy was no different than former President George W. Bush’s.

In the midst of the shouting, actor Samuel L. Jackson said to Cupp, “You don’t want to f—k with Dick Cheney" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

As NewsBusters readers know, one of my favorite things to do on Saturday is expose the stunning ignorance of HBO's Bill Maher.

The Real Time host didn't let me down Friday actually saying during his prepared opening monologue that Indiana's Richard Mourdock lost his senate bid Tuesday to - wait for it! - "Elizabeth Warren up in Massachusetts" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

For the second time in less than two weeks, Andrew Sullivan's ignorance was revealed on national television.

Following George Will and PBS's Gwen Ifill on ABC's This Week last month, MSNBC's sole conservative commentator S.E. Cupp assisted Sullivan with looking like a total moron on HBO's Real Time Friday (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Last week Bill Maher warned Mitt Romney supporters, "Black people know who you are and they will come after you."

On HBO's Real Time Friday, the host said that Republicans reacted to Obama's victory Tuesday like they "just found out that their wife is f--king a black guy" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

The ignorance and blind sycophancy of Bill Maher knows no bounds.

On HBO's Real Time Friday, the man who proudly gave a million dollars to Barack Obama's Super PAC said on national television, "Who cares what somebody in his administration wrote down on a piece of paper and predicted?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Bill Maher on HBO's Real Time Friday might have said one of the most disgraceful things uttered during the 2012 campaign season.

"If you're thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you" (video follows with commentary):

As NewsBusters readers know, one of my guilty pleasures is pointing out the staggering ignorance of Bill Maher.

The object of my disaffection certainly didn't let me down Friday evening when on HBO's Real Time he actually told Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) that we spend 42 percent of our total budget on defense (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Not surprisingly, Bill Maher and guest Ben Affleck took some cheap shots at former President George W. Bush during the Overtime installment of Friday's Real Time on HBO.

Smacking them down was conservative author Ann Coulter who deliciously said, "This is getting more boring than Charlie Rose (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Conservative author Ann Coulter made minced meat out of Bill Maher Friday.

As HBO's Real Time host spewed Democrat talking point after Democrat talking point, Coulter told him, "You're watching MSNBC, and I would not trust them to give you the truth" (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

It's becoming incredibly clear since Barack Obama's horrible performance in last week's debate that his fans in the media are more and more desperate.

On Sunday, HBO's Bill Maher said to his followers on Twitter, "John Sununu is a racist fat f--k" (serious vulgarity warning):

A revelatory humorous moment on Friday night’s Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO: A single member of his studio audience supports Mitt Romney. How’d he get in?

When Republican political consultant Frank Luntz predicted Barack Obama would win re-election, loud applause broke out from those in the studio at CBS Television City in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles. “How many of you out there support Mitt Romney?” A single person clapping could be heard, prompting Luntz to quip: “That’s the sound of one percent.”
