    Television personality Bill Maher penned an op-ed on his blog railing against the comic book industry in the wake of the passing of former Marvel Comics publisher Stan Lee. Maher dropped lines like "I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important," along with mocking fans who were mourning the loss of the beloved comic creator. "But then twenty years or so ago, something happened – adults decided they didn’t have to give up kid stuff," Maher ranted. "And so they pretended comic books...

    There was a scare in Hollywood on Monday when a suspicious package addressed to Bill Maher was reported to authorities — and the powerhouse management firm that reps the comic had to evacuate its offices. Sources told Page Six that Brillstein Entertainment — which reps Maher, as well as Brad Pitt, Rob Lowe and Courteney Cox — had been warned by authorities that Maher’s name was on a list of potential targets by alleged mail bomber Cesar Sayoc, as was Brillstein’s Wilshire Blvd. address.

    While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year’s THR...

    Reminiscent of Al Franken on the Late Show last October, on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, actor Ben Affleck charged that President Bush “probably also leaked” Valerie Plame's name and so “if he did, you can be hung for that! That's treason!” In full rant, an apoplectic Affleck asserted: “You could be killed. That's not a joking around Tom DeLay 'I'll do a year, I bribed the state officials with corporate money.' That's like they shoot you in the battlefield for doing that.”
  • Bill Maher: Hundreds of Millions of Muslims Support Attack on ‘Charlie Hebdo’

    The comedian responded to the deadly attack on a French satirical magazine by renewing his recent criticisms of the Islamic faith. Bill Maher didn’t hold back Wednesday night, blasting “hundreds of millions” of the world’s Muslims for allegedly supporting the Islamic terrorist massacre of cartoonists, writers, and editors at a Parisian satirical magazine that has mocked the Prophet Muhammad. “I know most Muslim people would not have carried out an attack like this,” the host of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher said on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. “But here’s the important point: Hundreds of millions of them support an...

    HBO’s Bill Maher lashed out at Sen. Lindsey Graham on Friday for his defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the South Carolina Republican was missing “the stabilizing influence of his dead boyfriend,” meaning the late Sen. John McCain. Maher, host of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” took shots at Graham multiple times -- for example, saying in his opening monologue that the senator was “familiar” with the “back door.” “The fact that Trump can either find people like him or make him … Lindsey Graham needs the stabilizing influence of his dead boyfriend,” Maher said later, in reference...

    HBO host Bill Maher, a prominent critic of President Trump, dismissed Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court nominee this week but said publicizing anonymous accusations against him dating back to high school make critics "look bad." “Now they’re coming at him with this accusation from someone anonymous who said that he was at a party … but sexual assault in high school from an anonymous source, I think it makes us look bad,” he said on Friday's “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

    Jim Carrey delivered a succinct one-minute lecture on Canadian health care to American audiences on Real Time With Bill Maher on Friday night. Fed up with what he perceives as inaccurate descriptions of the Canadian health-care system, Carrey made it clear that he thinks the country's medical care is in great shape and didn't mince words in his brief monologue. "I grew up in Canada, OK? We have socialized medicine," said a Nike-wearing Carrey to Maher's audience. "I'm here to tell you this bulls**t line you get on all of the political shows from people is that it's a failure....

    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones found an unlikely ally in liberal comedian Bill Maher on Friday. Maher defended Jones on his show, HBO’s “Real Time,” after Jones and his company, InfoWars, were essentially purged from social media. The bans came after CNN pressed social media companies to investigate whether Jones’ content violated their terms of service. What did Maher say? During a panel discussion, Maher defended Jones’ right to speak freely without recourse. Maher explained the protection of free speech is a fundamental value of liberalism. “If you’re a liberal, you’re supposed to be for free speech. That’s free speech for...

    Full Headline: Lawrence O'Donnell: Secret Service could ‘physically remove’ Trump from White House when he loses in 2020 MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell detailed his predictions for the end of the Trump presidency on Friday night, suggesting that the Secret Service could physically remove President Trump from the White House. Appearing on Bill Maher’s “Real Time" on HBO, O’Donnell said that he thinks Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will defeat Trump in 2020. “The most likely ending of it is when Elizabeth Warren, or whoever the Democratic nominee is, beats him in the next election,” O’Donnell said. “You think if he loses...

    Bill Maher has offered Mitt Romney $1M to take over the United States. The HBO late night star reminded viewers that, when the former Massachusetts governor ran for POTUS in 2012, “I was so scared Romney was going to be president I gave Obama a million bucks.” Explaining what a difference a few years, and one Donald Trump presidency, can make, Maher announced, “I would gladly give Romney $1M tomorrow if he would take over America. Swear to god!” “I will become a Mormon, how about that?” the well-known atheist said, upping the offer on Bill Maher: Live From Oklahoma,...

    Bill Maher began by asking Moore about the “Hail Mary” plan he supposedly had to prevent the replacement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. “Listen, the Senate right now is 50-49. Sadly, McCain will not be able to vote, so it’s a 50-49 vote,” Moore declared. “C’mon! We’ve got to push it off til after November.” “And I don’t trust every Democrat,” Maher told Moore. “I’ll join a million other people surrounding the United States Capitol,” Moore responded. “I will stand there. I will put my- Bill, let me tell you something. If this judge goes through, for at least the rest...

    Even before Donald Trump won the White House, there were strong indications that something was not quite right with the Liberal mindset. Today, all doubt on the matter has been cleared away. The mass hysteria that swept across Liberal America, like one giant tear tsunami, following Hillary Clinton’s ‘surprise’ loss in the 2016 presidential election has reached a new level of madness and can now be described as a deep-seated psychosis. There are some understandable reasons for the Left’s collective mental breakdown. Briefly, ‘Russiagate’ is disintegrating into a burlesque theater of the absurd, while Trump – from jump-starting the Heartland’s...

    Via Breitbart, we’ll have to wait for the IG’s report on Russiagate to know for sure, won’t we? Maher’s take is certainly possible. Strzok wouldn’t be the first or last guy to reassure his girlfriend that he’ll protect her from the bad guys with no intention of actually doing anything about it. “Don’t you worry your pretty little head, darlin’. Strzok-y’s here.”But the “virtual pillow talk” theory is somewhat harder to entertain in context. And there’s a lot of context:I’ve mentioned the following passage from the DOJ report in half a dozen posts by now but it really can’t...

    Political talk show host Bill Maher has a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome and the symptoms were on full display Friday night. The HBO show host said that he now wishes an economic recession in America in order to get rid of President Trump. I wish his statement was some kind of lame, offputting failed joke but Maher was perfectly serious. And, yes, fellow deranged audience members applauded him.During his Friday night show, Maher began his monologue by addressing the G7 Summit in Quebec this weekend. He described Trump’s arrival Friday as “Right on schedule, the turd showed...

    HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher admitted that he hopes the American economy will crash so that President Donald Trump will be voted out of office. Maher, along with his panel, discussed the success of the Trump administration’s growing economy, but remained skeptical about how long the prosperity will last. “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy,” Maher said during the June 8 show. “So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that...

    HBO host Bill Maher said Friday that he is "hoping for" an economic collapse because that is the only way the president's opponents can "get rid of Trump." Maher first asked guest Shermichael Singleton to asses the current economy under President Trump. "It is going well," Singleton answered. "For now." "Thank you, that’s my question,” Maher added. “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it." "I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy.
