  • Maher: Kathy Griffin 'should not go away'

    HBO host Bill Maher said Friday that Kathy Griffin made a mistake but "should not go away" following the furor over her joking about beheading the president. Maher delivered a fierce defense of making mistakes as a comedian "going for a laugh" on his show this week. He said that comedienne Griffin owes him "a fruit basket for getting her off the front page" after he caused an uproar for using the n-word on his HBO program the prior week. Griffin was fired from her annual New Year's Eve co-hosting gig by CNN last week after holding up a bloodied...

    Ice Cube appeared on Bill Maher's HBO show on Friday (June 9), where he addressed Maher for referring to himself as a "house n****r" in a previous episode. The veteran rapper got serious with Maher when he asked him, "What made you think it was ok to say that?" Cube went on to say that it's very hurtful to him anytime a white person says the n-word, even if he says they didn't mean it. He explained, “It’s like a knife, man. When I hear my homies say it, it don’t feel like venom. When I hear a white person...

    A racial slur. A homophobic joke. A mock beheading. Anti-Trump comedians are having a moment — and not the good kind. (snip...) antics like these are the exact opposite of the Michelle Obama maxim: “When they go low, we go high.”

    There is no line that Bill Maher won’t cross. It is part of what makes him an unpredictable comedian, and an at times problematic one. His most glaring blind spots concern transphobia—where he shares common ground with alt-right fellow traveler Milo Yiannopoulos—Islamophobia, and casual sexism. Disagree with her politics and shameless opportunism all you want, but repeatedly branding Sarah Palin a “bimbo” is not a good look. Maher seemed to cross that line again on Friday night.

    And this is a freedom that entertainers have that, unfortunately, our politicians have to tip-toe around. You’re not going to catch me cheering on Bill Maher, as a general rule. The man is no friend to Christians, having made our beliefs a target of scorn and ridicule for years. That being said, he’s not exclusive with his disdain for religion, and he has not held his tongue in the usual, liberal way, as far as protecting Islam from criticism. Again, he’s no champion for Christ, but in a recent episode of “Real Time,” Maher came out hard against apologists for...

This one’s for the flying nun.'” ...

    Rachel Maddow’s scoop on Trump’s tax returns sparked a media frenzy and left many disappointed over the hype after her report aired on MSNBC Tuesday night. On Friday’s Real Time, Bill Maher said it all amounted to “a Help Trump Burger.” “Liberals have to be so careful these days. I’m a big fan of Rachel Maddow, I want her on the air, but you can be a fan of somebody and not like everything they do,” he told guest panelists Barney Frank, a former Massachusetts congressman, and author Andrew Sullivan. “And this week she hypes — which is okay —...

    Far-left comedian Bill Maher on Tuesday derided war widow Carryn Owens for allowing herself to be Donald Trump’s “prop” in his speech to Congress. Three separate MSNBC guests called her that within an hour. Regarding the wife of the Navy SEAL, Maher sneered, “First of all, I wish she hadn't allowed herself to be used as his prop like that. And I don't see any great courage here. Where is the courage?” Appearing on a special 12am edition of Hardball, he whined, “Who wouldn't stand and applaud for a war widow?” Getting warmed up, the comic snarled, “It's all fun...

    Powerline ^ | February 25,2017 | Paul Mirengoff
    Maher undoubtedly wants Team Trump, and indeed President Trump, to be prosecuted. But on what basis? What crime are Trump’s people thought to have committed? What is the basis for believing they committed it? Maher didn’t say. Neither did Issa. Until there is good reason to believe that someone working on Trump’s behalf committed a crime, there is no reason to call for a special prosecutor. Moreover, Maher got his facts just about completely wrong when he tried to invoke as precedent the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Loretta Lynch did not recuse herself from the decision whether to prosecute Clinton;...

    Bill Maher, who has taken the credit for the downfall of former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, defended similar comments about pedophilia on his talk show in 1998. While discussing the case of 34-year-old Washington school teacher Mary Kay Letourneau, who was originally sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to two counts of second-degree rape of her 12-year-old male student, Maher argued that there was nothing inappropriate about the sexual relationship.

    Ignoring the politics of it for the moment, check out this video of Sam Harris debating Ben Affleck on Bill Maher’s Real Time show. I’ll teach you how to spot cognitive dissonance in the clip. Watch for the moment Ben has to hallucinate Sam’s opinion from the reasonable position that many Muslims worldwide have non-liberal views to an hallucination about “All Muslims are bad.” Sam and Bill both clarify their viewpoints, with data, but Ben is struck deaf to it. All he can hear is the absurd absolute “all.” He is literally hallucinating. I mean that literally. If you asked...

    Former porn star Jenna Jameson has attacked Bill Maher for criticizing President Trump over his infamous “grab them by the p****” remarks, claiming she saw Maher at the Playboy mansion and he “fits right in with us ‘p**** grabbers’”. For those of you who are unaware, Bill Maher likes to think he is a sanctimonious political analyst who actually makes no sense most of the time. It is not sure where his loyalty lies since he has praised Democrats but has also accepted some Republican values. But one thing is for certain: He detests President Trump. As Milo Yiannopoulos reported:...

Congressman Anthony Weiner. “I mean, what does it take? A racist, a liar, a tax cheat, a draft-dodger, a deadbeat, a Russian agent, and a rapist. You know we’re a nuclear power, right? These are red flags,” the Real Time host joked to an audience at Los Angeles comedy club Largo.

I know, it was named by Borat,” Maher quipped, according to Yahoo, which streamed the event. “Tonight I would like to give that PAC one million dollars.”

    Bill Maher wants Hillary Clinton to become more like the “super villain” that the GOP says she is. The “Real Time with Bill Maher” host said Friday that the Democratic presidential nominee should take advantage of the Republican Party’s “evil cartoon” portrayal of her. “Since half the country will believe an evil cartoon version of Hillary Clinton, no matter what she says or does, she has to embrace it,” the comedian said. Maher claimed that “sweet grandma Hillary” would have done fine in 2008. But in 2016, and with the rise of reality TV personality Donald Trump as the GOP’s...
