Maher is 'hoping for' economic collapse so he can 'get rid of Trump': 'Sorry if that hurts people'
The Washington Examiner ^ | June 8, 2018 | Christian Datoc

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. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”

The economy appears to be improving under President Trump despite his ongoing trade war with both China and U.S. allies.

Earler in June, the unemployment rate fell to 3.8 percent, a 50-year low.

Why doesn't he ask Kim Jong-un to nuke U.S.? Surely that will lead to the collapse of economy.

Maher is, and has been, an enemy of virtually anything good and healthy in America. He’s a good example of how atheism corrupts everything in someone’s life—even, and especially, common sense.

Has this guy or any of these people ever once gave a logical reason why they don’t like Trump?

Not surprised in the least. Its all about getting their way. The Leftists really don’t care about how many people get hurt in the process. This has always been their M.O.

Because they’re power-hungry Democrats, Trump is is their way, and he’s not quietly submitting to them like previous wimp Republicans did ... he’s fighting back

So for “people” used to always having their way, this is tremendously frustrating and angering

The reporting on this is always reported free of judgment or of having a quote from the opposite side saying how horrible this is.

How many “asses” does it take?

Kim Jong-un could be making a fortune working for the LMSM. He should swap jobs with maher.

Yes, I’ve noticed that too. Years ago, I used to watch his ‘Politically Incorrect’ show when he had entertaining guests like Ann Coulter. Whenever the subject was something degenerate: drugs, atheism, sexual deviancy, prostitution, abortion, porn... Maher was always big fan. If something was wholesome, he hated it.

These Lefty creeps have been trying to destroy the country for ages so they can creep into power. They are like rats sneaking into the pantry, leaving their turds wherever they go.

Funny how these libs had a hissy fit when Rush hoped Obama would fail, but now they just love the idea of a Trump failure. I almost feel sorry for this fool. He can wait and hope untill the end of time but Trump’s economy is strong and is be guided by the third greatest U.S. President ever. Thats Regan #1, Washington #2, and Trump #3. Not bad company I think.

“I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. “

Lenin, Stalin, Mao et al. murdered millions in order to get the political outcome they wanted.

At this point, leftists like Maher only wish for economic calamity, so I guess we can be grateful/ s

I have had libtards tell me to my face, that they wish the country would be destroyed, as long as white people get hurt by it. They were perfectly willing to go down with the ship, as long as white people got hurt. F them, and Bill M.
