Bill maher was true to form Friday night, accusing the conservatives of having “romanticized too much” America while the liberals do the exact opposite … and his words were dazzling.
The host of “Real Time” drew a contrast between immigrants who fled the brutal conditions in their own country, to come to the United States and hear our own citizens rail against our country … “If you knew the country, I [immigrants] came, you’d stop shitting on your own. “
Maher argued convincingly that the Conservatives have a monopoly on “I love America no matter what”. As he says, it’s in their DNA. On the other hand, he says the liberals think America is irremediable, racist, homophobic, oppressive. He says that’s why we can’t even find a host for the Oscars … or “In danger!”
Maher compared his experiences with others making similar critical comments in other countries. He points out that an Afghan comedian was tortured and murdered for his comments. On the other hand, he notes that he was called by 2 presidents – W and Asset –And Trump’s dusting is hilarious. 45 continued Bill for his side-by-side photo of Trump and an orangutan!
And, he had a lot more to say … that there is a reason an Afghan mother handed over her baby to American soldiers to get them out of the country.
Bill’s main point – America has big, big problems, but it’s not the asshole that some claim to be.
