Maher doubles down on call for recession to oust Trump; says it would be 'very worth' it
Fox News ^ | August 17, 2019 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn

"Real Time" host Bill Maher doubled down Friday on his desire for the U.S. economy to fall into recession in hopes of blocking a second term for President Trump -- telling his panel of guests any hardship that results would be "very worth" it.

"I've been saying for about two years that I hope we have a recession and people get mad at me," said Maher, a multimillionaire who would likely be well insulated from a financial downturn.

“I’m just saying we can survive a recession," he continued. "We've had 47 of them. We've had one every time there's a Republican president! They don’t last forever, You know what lasts forever? Wiping out species!”

The HBO star then pointed to a U.N. report warning how many species of plants and animals are at the risk of extinction and went on to blast the Trump administration for rolling back regulations from the Nixon-era Endangered Species Act "like any evil villain would do."

A recession could be two years from now and only lasts six months.
Now what they got?

Just a stone’s throw of those on the far left who want to crash the system. They don’t care who is harmed or killed in the inevitable rush to fill the void. Of course they calculate they will be ok because they are politically connected. They probably are the least equipped to survive such a crash.

Great post.

And if that was “growth” under Obama, I’d rather have the real thing and get a recession over with.

Sounds to me like the liberals are nervous and desperate now that their “Russia collusion” story has been shown to be a phoney.

The Left’s “I hope he fails” moment. And Maher ain’t the only one to say they look forward to an economic recession just to spite Trump.

Like never before, they are. These people can not even be defined by the word "evil" any more. Imagine saying something like that in hopes of getting Obama out of office. We would have riots on the streets.

Yes, indeed. They are being torn off by alternative media.

The Party Organs (the old, progressive, media) are no longer able to control the narrative, set the agenda, determine important issues, and define what is a scandal. Those powers were used to control the nation.

Worth WHAT? Easing their blinding hatred and deranged emotion?

Now a hack on MSNBC said that Trump supporters cannot point out Greenland on a map. Can you imagine if we accused a large percentage of Ds unable to read or spell Greenland? I hope their name-calling continues until we make them cry again on election night. Please, morons, don’t stop now!!!!

The Left wants total economic collapse, banks default, people out of jobs, so full Soviet “socialism” can make things “bettah”. FDR on steroids.

Crony Capitalist Obamaite Warren Buffet’s been in cash since early July waiting for the market to correct. GDP and consumers aren’t playing along so far. Additionally, foreigners are buying USTs and stocks for higher returns than what they can get in their own countries. This isn’t helping Doomers either.

Don’t they realize it’s their Pals’ Crony Capitalist socialized economies in Europe which are failing and causing money to flow into US markets? No, they don’t because they don’t think the system which works for them is a poor economic system.

President Trump is the President of growth and prosperity. The fact that Bill Maher would destroy that if he could, while he stays personally rich, says a lot. He’d rather be a rich man who stands out among a destitute population than a rich man in a middle class society where most people live as well as he, albeit less opulently. He has a serious case of wanting to flaunt superiority, compounded by an utter lack of empathy for other people.
