Bill Maher: The Magic R

I have some big problems with Bill Maher, but when he's right, he's right. I've never understood this either. Can you imagine if a Democrat were playing footsie with Vladimir Putin?

And that's only one example among many, throughout the Republican Party.

PS. My thanks to Jeff for the link!

You're quite welcome, sir.

I knew you weren't a big Bill Maher fan, so I kept it in mind that I was taking a gamble posting the clip. Bill is like a baseball batter that either strikes out or hits a home run. In this case, Bill just CRUSHED it.

Earlier in that show, Larry Wilmore and Milo Yiannopoulos got into it BIG TIME:

With the Trump sycophants being such obnoxious pricks, my Jedi instincts tell me that one or all of these talk shows are going to collapse into a Jerry Springer punchup. IMO, it's not IF but WHEN the fists will start flying on live TV.

"Are you not entertained?? entertained??"

BTW, the new comment box IS working.

Jeff, Yiannopoulos is the kind of guy whose name I don't even want to repeat in this comment, to avoid giving him any more publicity.

I don't like to see him on Bill Maher or anywhere else, even to criticize him, because he benefits when you take him that seriously.

Of course, we can't ignore this crap, either. But giving Donald Trump free publicity sure didn't help any! We need to laugh at these people, not give them the respect they desire.

Of course, even laughing at them might not help, because they can whine about being victimized. But there are no perfect solutions. Or if there are, I don't know what they might be.
