Bill Maher paints Trump as dangerous cult leader, takes swipe at Lindsey Graham’s sexuality

CHECK OUT for best SWAG!

Comedian and talk show host Bill Maher threw his usual jabs at President Donald Trump recently but seemed to push back when one guest blamed him for coronavirus deaths.

Maher spoke with a panel that included historian John Meacham on his year-end HBO “Real Time” show on Friday, discussing the election and Trump’s legal challenges to the results in several states. After comments about a press conference the previous day, Maher interjected when Meacham tried to pin the deaths of more than 250,000 Americans on the president.

Maher introduced Meacham as an “occasional” adviser to Democrat nominee Joe Biden, making a joke about the ousted MSNBC contributor who was not upfront about writing speeches for the former vice president.

The panel discussed the press conference held by Trump’s legal team in which Rudy Giuliani and attorney Sidney Powell revealed stunning allegations of widespread fraud in the presidential election and a process rigged by “communist money.”

“I think the reason so few Republicans have spoken out about this, sort of, if the Marx Brothers did a coup,” Meacham said on Friday’s “Real Time” episode.

“It’s easy, because it seems so incompetent, to make fun of it, but this is an administration whose fundamental incompetence has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and the most significant weakening of institutions that, however flawed, have produced, by and large, a more perfect union,” he continued.

“So it’s easy to be amused by Rudy,” Meacham added, “but we’re just lucky that our authoritarians are so incompetent.”

Maher agreed to a point, interjecting to offer a reality check of sorts.

“Everybody’s incompetent,” he said. “It wasn’t just Trump that led to those deaths. He certainly did his part, but we’re an incompetent country.”

“That’s true,” Meacham acknowledged.

“And an unhealthy one,” Maher added.

Meacham also contended that it is an “existential moment” for America and said there is “one more shot” at getting it right, referring to Georgia’s two U.S. Senate runoff elections set for January. He urged voters to “get it right” and send Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to the Senate by voting for them over the Republican incumbents, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.

Maher’s pushback on Meacham’s coronavirus claim was certainly not an endorsement of the president. The liberal show host, who has been an unapologetic Trump critic, later urged his viewers to not “gloat” over the supposed Biden victory when getting together with family over the Thanksgiving holiday.

“What now? Opportunity. To lift the scales from their eyes,” he said in the closing remarks of his final show of 2020.

“But it’s not going to happen if you’re mocking them or calling them stupid or making smart remarks like ‘If Kamala Harris really is a lizard person, why didn’t she eat that fly on Mike Pence’s head?” he said. “Don’t do that. I’m saying don’t do that.”

Not surprisingly, Maher then proceeded to do just that. He brutally ridiculed Trump supporters and compared them in detail to a cult. And the smug host couldn’t resist a dig at Lindsey Graham, throwing in a joke about his sexuality ( around the 6-minute mark). Really, Bill?

“Rather, if you have Trump relatives over for Thanksgiving, understand that they have been through a traumatic event,” Maher added.

“Their savior, their strongest smartest manliest hunk of a leader who ever lived just got his ass kicked by the 2,000 year-old man,” he said. “So don’t gloat, don’t even try to argue, because arguing with cult people only makes it worse.”
