  • Bill Maher: Hillary Clinton is ‘John McCain in drag’ (Unexpected! Bill Maher said something funny!)

    ...Mrs. Clinton admitted in her just-released “Hard Choices” book that she made a “mistake” in supporting the sending of U.S. troops into Iraq. But Mr. Maher scoffed at that admission in his blog, saying her “hawkish instincts” are still intact.... Citing a New York Times article from April characterizing Mrs. Clinton’s positions while secretary of state as out of step with those of the Obama’s administration, along with her recent comparison of Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler, Mr. Maher said: “She’s almost John McCain in drag.”... “She could grow a Hitler mustache and still win the Democratic nomination.” Read more:...

    Bill Maher said he would “love” to see Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) run as part of a 2016 presidential ticket with Hillary Clinton, calling the potential duo “a granny ticket.” Speaking on Ora.tv’s PoliticKING with Larry King, the liberal comic called Warren one of the “most gutsy” people in politics. When asked by King whom he thought would be able to lead the country to address climate change, Maher said: “I think someone like Elizabeth Warren, one of the most gutsy people I’ve seen in politics in a long time. She’s somebody, I think, who would really say what she...

    For his last “New Rule” of the night on Friday, Bill Maher used a recent column about Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling by The Washington Post’s Kathleen Parker to stand up for privacy and the Fourth Amendment. If the Sterling case taught us anything, Maher said, it’s that “there’s a force out there just as powerful as Big Brother: Big Girlfriend.” “If you don’t want your words broadcast in the public square, don’t say them,” Parker wrote in her column published last week, adding, “Such potential exposure forces us to more carefully select our words and edit our thoughts.

    Liberal comedian Bill Maher has some remorse for one of his former punchlines—Monica Lewinsky—after reading her essay in Vanity Fair. “I was moved by it. I gotta tell you, I literally felt guilty,” Maher said Friday on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Maher said he was moved after reading what Lewinsky described in the pages of the magazine as a time in which she was suicidal. “I remember doing a million Monica Lewinsky blow job jokes, and I kinda feel bad,” the late-night host said. Maher said he understands why Lewinsky is coming out now after ten years of...

    One can figure out that the "science" of climate change has fallen on hard times when its chief defenders are not actual scientists, but rather a pair of comedians, Bill Maher and Bill Nye the former "science guy," according to Politico. Of course a third comedian, albeit an amateur one, is also flogging the idea. John Kerry is comparing "climate change" to the threat of WMDs. When one considers that controversy that ensued when the coalition forces that liberated Iraq failed to find much evidence of WMDs, it was perhaps an unfortunate analogy.

The second involves a sick attempt by a mentally bankrupt comic to get a laugh at a child's expense. Anyone who would use a child's handicap as the subject of a joke doesn't belong on television.

    This week, anti-life members of The View cast demonstrated their bias once again in a discussion about the proper nomenclature that should be applied to individuals with mental and chromosomal abnormalities. Had the target been anyone other than the vehemently-hated conservative Sarah Palin and her beautiful son who was born with Down Syndrome, The View‘s Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg would undoubtedly not have defended the vulgar Bill Maher, who called Trig Palin “retarded.” In a despicable demonstration of the all-too-common liberal tendency to defend their own at all costs, Walters and Goldberg “reasoned” that because “retarded” used to be...

    ALTER: The Bill Clinton part is like a talk radio talking point. It's not what actually happened. What actually happened is that the government, Assad's government, made military advances. They're about to take Aleppo, a key strategic city, and that would be the end of the rebels. MAHER: You mean al Qaeda? Because we're basically arming al Qaeda. I don't understand this -- ALTER: There's a peace conference. If they don't go into that peace conference with at least some victories on the rebel side, the rebels won't show up. So the president is trying to bolster them enough so...

    In a recent stand-up performance, Bill Maher made a crack about Trig Palin, Sarah Palin’s special needs child. He got heard—first by a conservative writer, and then by Sarah Palin herself. Ron Futrell, a former sportscaster and contributor for Breitbart, says Maher referred to Palin’s youngest child Trig as “retarded.” Futrell has a special needs child himself, and has interviewed Palin in the past about their shared challenges. He was appalled, not only at Maher’s word choice, but the audience’s uproarious reaction. Futrell later began heckling the comic over a Halliburton reference: I was in the back of the room...

  • Bill Maher: The Pope's an Atheist and The Vatican Will Likely Poison Him

    When children are desperate for attention they scream and cry, talk show hosts in need of attention make fun of Catholics. Actually "make fun" isn't the proper term. They hurl hate at Catholics with a smile on their face so they can accuse anyone who's offended of being humorless. Television host Bill Maher has long lost the power to shock because he's so consistently misinformed and hateful about religious people. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't take note of what is said by him and others like him. Sometimes when I write about anti-Catholic screeds from the media some see...

    Democrats love this stuff. It’s humor at its best. They can slam Bush and wounded US veterans at the same time. So funny.On his HBO show this week, Bill Maher called the George W. Bush Wounded Warrior Bike Ride nauseating and compared him to Ohio kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro. NewsBusters reported: (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Transcript via NewsBusters: BILL MAHER: George Bush, over the Memorial Day weekend, held the Wounded Warrior 100K, which was a kind of a celebration for wounded warrior who is came back from Iraq and I guess they walked or ran or something on their prosthetic limbs. And...

    Though he had no idea what it was, the annual “Bush Center Warrior 100K” mountain bike ride, which took place over the Memorial Day weekend, upset Bill Maher. “I guess they walked or ran or something on their prosthetic limbs,” Maher sneered about George W. Bush’s ride around his Texas ranch with 20 servicemen, “and I found this to be nauseating. I mean, first he sends them off to war to get their limbs blown off and then he has them over for a barbecue.” Maher then equated the former President with Ariel Castro, the kidnaper who held captive multiple...
  • Ted Cruz gets ire from Chris Matthews, Bill Maher, and Gail Collins

    The Examiner ^ | May 25, 2013 | Mark Whittington
    One thing can be said about Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is that he attracts media ire as much as a Hollywood celebrity attracts paparazzi. If one’s worth is measured in the number of one’s enemies, Cruz is richer beyond the dreams of avarice. Chris Matthews, the MSNBC talking head, left a blog post on May 24, 2013 that stated, without apparent irony, “Pay attention to Senator Cruz because he is the unsmiling, contemptuous face of the wild, nasty, hard-right fringe of a party that once competed with the Democrats to be the country’s governing party.” Bill Maher, also without irony,...
