I've NEVER been able to stand the guy, to be honest. He is NOT humorous nor witty (though that's his job) and he reeks of rich, East Coast elitism...
He also has a LOOOONNNNGGGG track record of being a bigot, misogynist and racist.
Recently, while interviewing Senator Ben Sasse, Maher was invited to “come work in the fields with us” in his home state of Nebraska.
Maher's response? “Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house nigger!”
HBO, the channel the show aired on called Maher's remarks "completely inexcusable and tasteless". They're right! Too bad those are FAR from the first...
You see Maher is a racist.
What makes it even more disgusting his type of racism is apparently just fine with establishment, elitist Democrats, because, MOSTLY, he is Islamophobic.
For example, he once asked a Pakistani-British band member where he was during the Boston Bombing.
He also regularly spews a host of insults about the Koran, Muslims, and Islam in general.
Additionally, while complaining about St. Patrick’s Day stereotypes "joked", “What if during Black History Month, we all bought lobster with food stamps?
"What if for Cinco de Mayo we all went swimming in blue jeans?”
See what I mean? (if not, then you are most DEFINITELY part of the problem!)
He also is a misogynistic as hell... He regularly calls women "bitches" and and even cheered on a pro football player for choking his girlfriend, saying “the surprise is that someone hasn’t choked this bitch sooner.”
He additionally showed his scorn for women by uses sexist language to take a shot at Trump when he said, “If Trump was a man, he’d stop whining like a little bitch." and stuck up for his buddy Bill O’Reilly’s right to tell racist and sexist joke about Rep. Maxine Waters’ hair.
Lastly he is homophobic and transphobic and often expressed his disgust over both. To make it worse he often did it while hanging out with his bestest transphobic buddy Milo Yiannopoulos... I guess in between his pedophile appointments. ::roll eyes::
....BUT... he's still the darling of the elitist, neo-lib, Demosaurs. Go figure!
