Skip to comments.Barbara Walters Defends Maher Calling Trig Palin Retarded: I Donīt Think He Intended it
Posted on 06/17/2013 4:42:17 PM PDT by Nachum
As NewsBusters reported last week, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called out vulgarian comedian Bill Maher for referring to her Down Syndrome son Trig as "retarded." On ABC´s The View Monday, co-host Barbara Walters astonishingly defended Maher saying, "I don´t think he intended it to be mean-spirited" (video follows with transcript and commentary): WHOOPI GOLDBERG: At a recent standup show in Las Vegas, comedian Bill Maher apparently called Sarah Palins five-year-old developmentally-challenged son Trig retarded. And Sarah blasted him on Twitter as a bully. Is that, is it, is he a bully? Is he a bad, what is he?

I’m guessing he didn’t intend it any of the other times either.
So says the woman who climbed the ladder on her back...
In a tyrannical state those in the favor of the Party are NEVER at fault.
Bawbawa Wawwa Defends Mahew Cawwing Twig Pawin Wetawded.
Dried up old liberal hag. What if someone had insulted the Obama girls, then Katie bar the door.
A child is not just a child to these people, the politics of the parent matter too. Why, Sarah’s kids/grandkids will probably grow up to be rightwingers like her, so fire away!
Baba Wawa needs to go to the home.
Hey! Hey! Hey! Let’s watch our language! The proper word is “stupid”.
She’s just revealing her senility.
Or the Perky One a SLUT.
Barbara Walters is retarded. I don’t mean that “mean-spiritedly”.
Why the hell is he making jokes about a five-year-old boy at all?
It won’t be long before her serial facelifts will have her talking from the back of her head. Now that will be the most interesting she’s been in years.
“Developmentally challenged” is a fair euphemism for those with Down’s Syndrome and other such difficulties. “Retard” should only apply to Maher and people like him.
I can’t wait for this woman to die so I can stand in line to urinate on her grave !
Who is this Bill Manure?
Isn’t she a cewebwitty swutt?
“So says the woman who climbed the ladder on her back...”
How would what Maher said be anything but mean spirited?! Sickening b*tch, never could stand her, like her even less now, if that is possible.
She is nothing but an old media whore in more ways than one.
tomato, towmato, potato, powtato. What difference does it make NOW.
Five year old boys live in his head, also.
ABC slut has an opinion. Shocking
I hope when Palin decks that a-hole Maher, Barbara is standing near so she can deck her *ss next. No one should be making jokes about someone’s child during a vulgar ‘comedy’ show and Babs, the slut, knows it.
I guarantee you it would matter if it had been Chelsea Clinton being the butt of someone’s filthy joke.
That's actually more to the point. PC language nazis go pound sand.
That old slut is probably having sex with Maher. They deserve each other.
Why the hell is he making jokes about a five-year-old boy at all?
Everything Bill Maher says is intentional. A two minute watching of his show would make that quite clear.
Speaking of Baba Wawa and retarded...at least she used both of her IQ points to boink her was onto tv.
Chelsea grabs Babs - as in cozier than hell.
Not a very convincing embrace LOL.
Wow, Barbara Walters made comments before that all children of political opponents should be left alone. She was very angry to see Sarah Palin on Fox, being Sarah Palin. Palin isn’t a political correct person; she is just honest with her thoughts rather than being a backstabbing female like the liberal dinosaur is. Palin lives her convictions like many of us do.
She has class herself /s Baba Wawa wrote a tell all book about her thrilling, interracial relationship with former black Republican Senator, Ed Brooke, of Massachusetts. As the...hot story was being released, former Sen. Ed Brooke was undergoing surgery for breast cancer (men get it too). This lady is real classy and it shows in her defense of Bill Maher -- NOT.
She wasn’t the only one defending the nitwit. I’d love to ask Whoopi and Sherri if they feel the same way about people still using the N word.—or even negroe of black.
From what I’ve seen of Mr. Maher, he lacks the inhibitions that most of us have by age 7 or 8. He says whatever comes into his head, as though he is perpetually drunk.
Liberals always find ways to rationalize saying horrible things about Conservatives..so Babs has decided that Maher had NO IDEA what a “Retard” is..OK fine, two can play at this game..tomorrow Rush Limbaugh should go on his radio show and say that he takes back his apology to Sandra Fluke, he was just kidding, he has NO idea what a “Slut” is.” let’s see how liberals like them apples
Because he is retarded, I mean slow.
It’s 2013 and he doesn’t know its derogatory to call someone “retarded”. The left often gives retarded people the benefit of the doubt. I mean he didn’t know he was being offensive, his upbringing must be at fault.
Talk about a room full of slow people. Takes them an hour to complete a 20 minute show.
and i don’t intend any mean-spiritedness by pointing out barbara walters slept her way to the top of her “career”.
she damn sure did !!!
Wasn’t it the liberals who banned the word “retard” as unPC?
This is the first amendment at work, freedom of speech. Why is it good for some and not others? Society has made it loathsome to be retarded. We all have something imperfect. Accept it. Talk about it with truth. Ya, so thats what he is retarded. He cant do anything about it. The word police have conditioned us to feel shame for speaking truth because the truth may hurt someones feelings. Is that the kind of society we want to foster one that can only respond to fairy tales? I am a fat gimp. Thats what I am. I cant do anything about my bum leg.
I love Sarah Palin. I would campaign for her until the end of time. But she gives Bill Maher way too much power. He wants her attention and gets it every time he wants it. She should revel in the fact that Bills heart is full with her. He will say anything to make Sarah think about him even in a despicable way. Bill doesnt hurt Trig with this talk. Sarah shouldnt allow him to hurt her.
This celebrity slut has made a living unbelievably in the “spoken word” industry . . . she, having a hell of a speech defect, trots around like some kind of queen. I can’t stand looking at her or being made to listen to her.
He damned well did mean it.
Imagine Dennis Miller saying that Obama's daughters are "retards" because he doesn't think much of the president.
What say you BABS?
Are the kids "we-tahds" or not?
Did an anti-Obama comedian not "intend" that?
I'll wait for your answer.
Oh, I don't know, Whooped-ass. Let's see what you say about a comedian if he/she called your child 'retarded'.
C'mon, she's not particularly attractive, and can't even pronounce an "r" properly.
Maybe she's good in bed.
Makes me wonder how Tom Brokaw got HIS gig.
He was not making a joke, he is just a mean liberal.
same way Doris Kerns Goodman did it...on her knees
Retarded is a perfectly fine word, and I don’t mind that Maher used it.
I am tired of the PC police.
