Pompous Comedian Worth $140M Browbeats Struggling Americans in Biden’s Economy: ‘Cheer the F*** Up’

Liberal milquetoast HBO comedian Bill Maher became the latest leftist media talking head to attempt slapping around Americans for not being more cheery in the nightmare world of Bidenomics. 

During the March 15 edition of Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher vented about Americans’ panning of the Biden economy. After asking the absurd question “Why are Biden’s approval ratings so low when things are generally good,” Maher lashed out at ordinary Americans: “Cheer the f*** up! Stop acting like life in America in 2024 is unbearable. Biden’s ratings are in the toilet, not because he’s doing a bad job but because a lot of Americans like to live with their head in the toilet.” That’s easy for a pompous prima donna like Maher to say, given he’s worth about $140 million. The rest of the people living in Middle America, on the other hand, have been hamstrung by the day-to-day struggles of an increasingly unbearable cost-of-living environment due to a years-long battle with inflation stimulated by President Joe Biden’s outrageous spending policies.  

It was an absurd question when they asked it, but Maher has come up with an even more absurd response. Maher started by praising the state of the economy, “Wages are rising, unemployment is negligible, the stock market is soaring. We somehow brushed off both a Trump presidency and a pandemic.” Maher’s partisanship is showing, as Americans were notably better off during Trump’s presidency than under Joe Biden. Despite Maher’s claim of rising wages, real wages have fallen under President Biden, while they rose significantly over the course of Trump’s presidency. 

After median weekly real wages rose from $352 to $373 under President Trump, this progress came to an abrupt halt under President Biden as median weekly real wages fell to $371 by the end of 2023. 

Maher admitted that inflation was still an issue, but then went down the condescending route again. To sum up: Sure, the price spikes for everyday necessities like food are daunting, according to Maher, but Americans should still be grateful because they  have access to — *checks notes*— “porn on the phone,” in addition to “stuffed crust pizza,” “legal weed,” and “next day shipping.” Talk about cringe.
