HBO host Bill Maher was his usual nasty self on Friday’s Real Time. Joking about Cuba and America’s relationship with the communist country, he sneered that the United States’s decades-old embargo “means endlessly patching up their old DeSotos and Edsels with whatever they can scrounge, old tractor parts, chicken wire, the bones of prostitutes Rush Limbaugh killed on vacation.”
It was almost enough but not quite to elicit a twinge of sympathy for the 39th president of the United States.
In addition to his HBO show that airs Friday nights, comic Bill Maher posts on "Overtime" segment on YouTube that's often worth checking out, as was the case this weekend.
On his Real Time show on Friday, HBO comedian Bill Maher referred to the U.S. military as a "mass murder machine" as he recalled that the reason he likes Bernie Sanders so much is because the Vermont socialist is the only presidential candidate who would argue against building a bigger military. Maher also made a crass reference to Tea Party conservatives by referring to Muslim extremists in Pakistan who want to be able to marry children as "teabaggers" who objected to a "meddling federal government stopping us from marrying children."
On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, host Maher ended the show with a commentary against religion as he demanded that churches in the U.S. be taxed. The HBO comedian compared taxing religion to taxing destructive habits like smoking by suggesting a tax on Sunday school so children "don't get stupid." Conveniently ignoring that the Nazis and communists who mass murdered tens of millions were atheists, Maher also linked religion to genocide and other destructive behavior.
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, host Bill Maher was again aiming crude personal insults at GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz -- this time likening him to a "rat" and to convicted pedophile Jared Fogle of Subway restaurant fame -- and Republicans, this week recommending that the GOP give up on winning the presidential election because the "teabagger" Congress is so effective at being "obstructionist a******s" when they are not holding the White House.
"Just say 'Islamic terrorism.' Just say those words and you'll win the election. Avoid those words and you're going to lose the election."
Please! Pretty please! Just say them. ...Despite the pleas of Bill Maher on HBO's Real Time last night, Senator Corey Booker of New Jersey declined to utter the words that seem so taboo for the Democrats. Bill Maher knows, as you can see in the video below, that the refusal by the Democrats to call out terrorism for what it really is could cost them the general election this year. Despite this outspoken concern by Maher, Booker still refuses to bow to this reality.
To his credit, comic Bill Maher is more than willing to part company from the liberal herd over radical Islam. But when it comes to Dear Leader and his signature legislative achievement, Maher bleets with the best of them.
During a discussion with guests on his HBO show Friday night, Maher exhibited a fine specimen of liberal illogic that delighted his overwhelmingly like-minded audience.
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, host Bill Maher joked about having a fantasy that an apparently unstoppable Donald Trump will unexpectedly drop dead on stage, and, moments later, joked about the possibility that discussing former Vice President Dick Cheney on his show might result in his death as he recalled the coincidental passing of Antonin Scalia and Nancy Reagan right after Maher had mentioned them on the air.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher repeatedly accused Republicans of exploiting racism for political advantage as he asserted that the GOP "made a Faustian deal with the racist devil" and went on to repeat an old debunked claim that Ronald Reagan began his 1980 presidential campaign at the site of a racially motivated murder.
He went on to compare the GOP to a house which has allowed racists with Nazi memorabilia to live in one of the rooms, and ended up taking clips from an Adolf Hitler speech and reciting a fake translation to make the former Nazi leader sound similar to GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, host Bill Maher ended his show by wishing that prominent Republicans suffer violent tragedies -- some of which would likely be deadly -- caused by global warming and other environmental issues so as to make Republicans take a more liberal view on environmental regulations. The theoretical tragedies included Chris Christie having his arm torn off by a shark, James Inhofe being "mauled" by a polar bear and Rush Limbaugh being attacked by bees.
On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, left-wing HBO comedian Bill Maher and his all-liberal panel went after deceased conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, as Maher not only joked about the possibility that he died while watching his show, but ended up imagining him "murdering" birds and looking like Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series the evening before his passing.
On Saturday, the Obama White House responded to a petition with over 320,000 signatures begging the president for an interview with leftist HBO host Bill Maher.
"Plenty of us around here watch Real Time because we admire Bill’s passion for spreading the science on climate change, asking tough questions about money in politics, and trying to burst 'the bubble' where some of our politicians — and too many of our nation’s critical political debates — exist." But there was no promise to appea.
