Maher: Trump ‘The Worst Person Ever’ – Healthcare Bill ‘More Like a Manifesto from the Zodiac Killer’

United States News - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 23:58

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated President Trump is the worst person of all-time and compared the Senate healthcare bill to a manifesto by the Zodiac Killer. Maher began by saying Trump is “the worst person ever.” He added, “Democrats have to stop losing elections, because — sorry Republican viewers, I love you, but the wrong people are in power. And they are not afraid to use that power. And let me tell you, they are full of good ideas. This week, a Republican Congressman introduced a bill to make it legal for senators and representatives to carry firearms at work, there at the Capitol. Which sounds like a good plan, until [Senator] John McCain’s (R-AZ) cell phone rings and he answers his gun.” Maher later said that the Senate healthcare bill is “More like a manifesto from the Zodiac Killer. They should’ve published this by cutting out letters from the newspaper.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher pitched a holiday for people who don’t have children and argued that not having children is the best thing you can do for the environment. Maher said, “Now that we’ve had Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, let’s set aside this Sunday to celebrate people who are neither, with a new holiday called, ‘I Didn’t Reproduce Day.'” Maher clarified that there isn’t anything wrong with “having a small number of children.” He later stated, “[N]obody ever celebrates us, and they really should. Because you know what Mother Nature loves even more than electric cars? Condoms. There’s literally nothing you can do that’s better for the environment than to not produce another resource-sucking, waste-making human being, probably with a bad attitude.” He later added that having or not having children doesn’t have a “moral dimension” to it, and is merely a matter of preference.
