    On HBO’s “Real Time,” comedian Bill Maher argued that in order to think things in America are going well, “you have to not care about democracy, Russia, corruption, the environment.” Maher said, “[A]lmost 60 percent of the people [in] the latest poll in America say things are going well. Now, you have to not care about democracy, Russia, corruption, the environment. I–.” Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich cut in to say that 90 percent of Americans would say things were going well if there wasn’t a “jerk” as president. Maher then stated, “I know it’s always the economy, stupid. But...

    Bill Maher on Friday cut New Rules short to share an open letter to “dear friend” Roseanne Barr. The seven-minute segment found the Real Time host addressing the success of the Roseanne revival, while also questioning both Barr and her character’s controversial support of President Trump. “It’s 2018 and we have to talk about Trump,” Maher said. “Like it or not, you’re now the face of the Trump supporter, because you really do speak for a certain kind of American who knows they’re being screwed by someone, they just don’t know who. But here’s what you’re missing about Trump: When...

    During the “Overtime” segment on Real Time, the panel had a lengthy discussion about the political divisions in the country. In reaction to Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti dishing about his case against President Trump, professor and author Jordan B. Peterson kicked off the conversation by asking what would happen to the millions of people that support the president if the opposition got their way and had him impeached. “It looks to me, from an outsider’s perspective, your country is polarizing in a way that’s not good and that, you know, people are going after Trump and I understand that,”...

    “It looks to me, from an outsider’s perspective, your country is polarizing in a way that’s not good and that, you know, people are going after Trump and I understand that,” Peterson elaborated, “but there’s all these people that elected him and identify with him and they’re not taking this well… You might not think they’re very bright and all of that… but you know, you need to have respect for the rest of your citizens and if your country is going to pull itself apart and as you really see this happening from an outsider’s perspective.”

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher expressed concern that the Stormy Daniels story is “taking a lot of energy away from real issues.” While interviewing Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, Maher stated that he worries that despite all the “giddiness” on the left, Trump will simply pardon everyone and not show up for a deposition. He added, “But, my other worry about it is that it’s taking a lot of energy away from real issues.” Avenatti countered, “I think the cover-up is always a real issue Maher responded, “Yes, but it’s actually not what polls say people...

    Welcome: it’s #SooperSunday, a day set aside to wonder about things and cook up a pot of soup.Here’s something to wonder about, a rare instance of hell freezing over: Bill Maher gets something right. In this case the very nature of fake news. Meanwhile we are awaiting the 3rd wave of the “Big Blow” that dumped 7 feet of snow on northern Cali. Disappointingly, wave 1 and 2 missed us. Only in states dependent on snowpack for its water supply – and harboring a huge ski-based economy - would that be a problem. The snow accumulation has been downgraded significantly...

    Two survivors from the Florida high school shooting said they will not be giving up on their push for gun control anytime soon, with one saying that "President Trump needs to listen to the screams of the children." “We are millennials and we love complaining more than any other generation," David Hogg said on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" when asked how long he and fellow student Cameron Kasky would push for gun control. Hogg said during the interview that the White House called him the day before Trump's listening session last month with students and family members impacted...

    Former Mexican president Vincente Fox was the mid-show guest on Friday’s episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher,” and right off the bat they discussed the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. And as far as Fox was concerned, the tragedy is a by-product of bigotry and racism, particularly the sort that comes out of Donald Trump’s Mouth.

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has vehemently denied a rumor started by “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff that she is having an extramarital affair with President Trump, calling the allegations that she slept her way to the top “disgusting” and “highly offensive” to women in power. “It is absolutely not true,” Mrs. Haley told Politico in an interview published Friday. “But it goes to a bigger issue that we need to always be conscious of: At every point in my life, I’ve noticed that if you speak your mind and you’re strong about it and you...

    RUSH: Friday night, HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. He spoke with environmentalist wacko and author Bill McKibben about his efforts to convince people that climate change is real. You know, if it was real, you wouldn’t have to convince people. That’s the thing about science. If it’s real, there’s no convincing. You don’t have to sell science. Science doesn’t need a marketing plan. Science doesn’t need a political action committee. Science doesn’t need donors. Science doesn’t need to run ads. Science is, by definition, science. It’s tested to the point of infallibility, and only then are conclusions published. And...

    Should he stay or should he go? Hollywood, never as monolithic as Fox News viewers believe, certainly has reached no consensus on Al Franken, the Saturday Night Live veteran turned Minnesota senator. “Zero tolerance,” tweets Alyssa Milano, firmly in the he-needs-to-go camp. On the other side: “He made a mistake,” said Chelsea Handler, agreeing with a Franken-supporting Bill Maher on last night’s Real Time With Bill Maher. “He’s not a predator.” Maher neatly summed up the anti-resignation argument: “He did a bad thing and the condemnation has been universal, which he deserves. What he doesn’t deserve is to be lumped...

    UPDATE with video Bill Maher didn’t exactly go easy on his pal Al Franken tonight, spending much of the opening monologue and a big chunk of Real Time’s season finale tossing joke grenades at the Minnesota senator. But the HBO host drew a hard line between the former Saturday Night Live staffer and the ever-growing gang of famous abusers and grabbers. Maher then described the scandal – the photo of Franken “mock-groping” Leeann Tweeden, then writing and demanding a rehearsal of a sketch calling for a kiss. “Al’s a friend,” Maher said, “but Al I gotta tell you, if you...

The actor told Bill Maher on Friday's edition of Real Time that he was put off his food by Trump's 'narcissism'. 'I had to walk out halfway through, smoke a joint, just to steel myself for the rest of the thing,' Harrelson recalled. 'It was brutal.'

  • Maher: I Don’t Care if Bob Menendez Is ‘A Menendez Brother’ – ‘He Needs to Stay in the Senate’

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) should stay in the Senate, even if he’s a Menendez brother. Maher said, “[I]n normal times, I would say, well, maybe the Democrats should vote — he’s a Democrat, to vote against Bob Menendez and say, ‘You should get out of the Senate. Except, in the post-Merrick Garland world, where the Republican view is you know what, whatever you can get away with, I don’t care if he’s a Menendez brother. He needs to stay in the Senate. Because if he leaves before Chris Christie...

    As Texans reflect and recover from the devastation that came with Hurricane Harvey, comedian Bill Maher told his audience Saturday night that the survivors have no right to ask for federal aid. Texans have a "low tax base," he argued. Oh, and they don't believe in climate change. Why should Washington bail them out? "These places that got flooded, like Texas, okay, they have a low tax base," Maher said on his show "Real Time" on Friday. "So, the federal government bails them out. Their governors, their legislators they don’t believe in climate science.""It seems like the responsible folks in...
