Skip to comments.Matthew Perry Calls Fox’s Bret Baier A “Scared A**hole” On Bill Maher Panel

Poor Bret Baier cant even get 90s sitcom celebrities to properly remember his name when they call him a scared asshole on national TV, which they are still on for some reason. Thus was his misfortune last night on Real Time, as Bill Mahers panel evaluated Bill OReillys pre-Super Bowl interview with President Obama and Matthew Perry chimed in to compare that interview to the one Bill Baier did with the president a while ago, which he found only marginally more acceptable.
Real Time isnt exactly a place for euphemisms, but last nights panel was particularly abrasive, even for the venue (save Princeton professor Cornel West, whose mom is watching and thus limited his vocabulary to only certain flourishes of implied vulgarity). Maher opened the discussion arguing that patriotism was less about guns and more about not belittling your president, and wondered incredulously what the response would have been to a similar interview of President George W. Bush conducted by Keith Olbermann. Author Hooman Majd went a step further and considered many of OReillys comments bigoted, suggesting that, were he in the presidents shoes, he would have kicked OReilly out of the house when he asked whether he knew about football. West noted that he felt the President managed to keep his cool because its really dissent among progressives that makes him angry people like us and that OReillys routine was expected. Still, Maher countered, OReilly leaned over like it was a bar and, in his eyes, was generally rude.

He's probably better known in Japan.
TV turned off Nov 4 2008.....I will trust your review ...
He has a mouth like a salty sailor.
Thanks. Alas, I *missed* it or them.
Mr. Perry thinks the sun shines out of his ass.
I think we should all start getting his name wrong now.
He’s “Gaylord” Perry to me now.
It looked like a lousy show, anyway. Still, I wish these people would just shut up and do their jobs—acting, singing, whatever.
I saw that last night, and the stupid prick called him Bill instead of Bret. Part
of my self abuse to keep up with the enemy, like reading the NY Slimes.
I had his new show recorded on the DVR to watch and promptly deleted it.
Morons like him don’t realize half their fan base votes normal.
Nov 4, 2008 - probably a good idea. Stay warm!
