  • Bill Maher Says ‘QAnon’ Shows That Trump Supporters Will Believe Anything

    Last night on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the host laced into Trump supporters for getting behind the conspiracy movement QAnon, claiming that their blind support shows that they will truly believe anything. “I am Q,” Maher revealed during his New Rules segment of the show, under the guise of the newly-popular anonymous conspiracy theorist. The host went on the defensive, frustratingly demanding: “If Trump supporters don’t want us to call them stupid they have to stop coming up with things like Q.” “Just a few months ago…I was talking about how Republicans are now the Conspiracy Party and...

    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...

    Whatever one’s feelings are about the president of the United States, it is undeniable that he has provided a valuable service: He has compelled many noteworthy Americans to dispense with their veneer of compassion and thoughtfulness and instead, expose their angry, petty and disconsolate core. Sunday night at the Tony Awards in New York, it was Robert De Niro who showed who he really was when he took the stage and declared, “I’m gonna say one thing: (Expletive) — Trump! It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s (expletive) Trump!” He raised his clenched fists in the air and the actors,...

    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...

    Bill Maher Hopes for ‘Crashing Economy’ to Get Rid of Trump — ‘Bring on the Recession’(Full Title) Friday on HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher admitted he was hoping for the American economy to falter because he said that was the one way to “get rid” of President Donald Trump. Maher acknowledged the economy was good for now but said he felt like the bottom could “fall out at some point.” “That’s my question — 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...

    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...

He then bragged that he hung up on the White House… before his classmate dropped an “F-bomb” on national television, directed at “all generations before us.” ...“I actually hung up on the White House the other day,” Hogg boasted, explaining that they had called him the day before Trump’s listening session to invite him to attend.

    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...

    On Real Time on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher was again hitting the issue of race from the left as he promoted claims that the purpose of the Second Amendment was to help keep the slave population under control, rather than to give the population a right to self-defense. Additionally, he played the game of finding racial double standards in the treatment of whites and nonwhites with regard to guns and mass shootings. And, for his part, MSNBC Republican Steve Schmidt ridiculously claimed that "It is harder to buy cough medicine than it is to buy an AK-47 or 50...

    HBO host Bill Maher complained that it "seems a little unfair" for residents of conservative states like Texas to rely on federal assistance in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. "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 this country, the people who pay a little more taxes and the people who believe in climate change are bailing out the people who...

    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...

    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.'” ...
