Hack Bill Maher Compares Trump's Big Event To A 'Klan Rally' [Video]
Late night hack, Bill Maher takes aim at the President for his 500th episode special. This time he extended his hate to Trump supporters, likening Trump's Orlando rally to the Klan.
“Did you see this Klan rally he was having there?” Maher joked at the start of the 500th episode of “Real Time,” which he has been hosting since 2003. He added that Trump supporters had a “goldfish memory.”
Later, Maher took issue that the media did not point out that members of the controversial Proud Boys group had attended the Orlando rally, adding that the group's members were "accepted" by Trump's base.
"Look at these guys," Maher said, referring to the Proud Boys. "They're making that, that sign, that white supremacist sign, and they're welcomed as part of this base. OK, I didn't hear about that at all this week."
One of Maher's guests, Dan Savage -- the syndicated columnist and LGBT activist -- asserted that the Republican Party was "controlled by racists."
At another point in the show, Maher defended Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden over his controversial comments about having worked with segregationist senators. Maher blasted the media for focusing on the matter and dismissed Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker's call for an apology from Biden as "nonsense."
"I always imagined that... some real person who, like, sees this chattering going on among people who sit in places like this on the coasts and are always talking about some nonsense and they're like, 'What the f--- are you talking about?'" Maher said.-
Maher also addressed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her controversial comparison of border detention centers to "concentration camps."
He noted that if Democrats planned to defeat Trump in 2020 by running on the topics of "concentration camps" and reparations, he wasn't sure they could pull it off.
"I’m not saying you can’t do it," he added. "But [it's] very hard to argue that this is helping."
