Fri, 06/23/2017 - 23:58

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

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.

If you say, ‘There may be a way to actually — to figure out exactly what was said, there could be a mechanism, thus you ought to watch what you say.’ That’s not intimidation at all. That’s just — I mean as you say, we’re now at sort of the tertiary level of accusation. You can’t get anywhere on collusion, we have yet in almost a year to have any evidence of collusion. So they’re on to obstruction. obstruction is really kind of shaky. There isn’t really that much there. So now you want to go to intimidation of a witness. They’re getting a bit desperate.
