Nobody in Hollywood suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome quite like Bill Maher – the host of HBO’s Real Time.
Every Friday night you can flip over to the Home Box Office network where you can catch Maher and his liberal cronies bashing the Trump administration in gross and despicable ways. It might just be one of the more offensive liberal shows on all of television.
But Maher went after Trump supporters recently and he crossed a major line by calling them this one word.
Bill Maher has a long history of spouting off irrational liberal propaganda that’s disguised as “comedy” so as to lighten the idea that he’s not classified as a political talking head.
People like John Oliver, Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert and formerly Jon Stewart (before his retirement) have always hidden under the “comedic satire” umbrella so they can get away with their anti-conservatism antics.
One could argue that Maher was the spark that lit the fire. ABC’s Politically Incorrect ran on television from 1993-2002 before being canceled because of an incredibly insensitive comment about how brave the 9/11 terrorists were to give their lives for the cause.
Then HBO took him under their wing and he didn’t really change. Maher has always spouted unbelievable vitriol towards conservatism, but not quite as hateful as when it comes to the current administration and President Trump’s family.
Now Maher is going after his supporters in a new tweet where he essentially called all of them “stupid.”
He wrote, “Hearing Trump’s ridic[ulous] ‘statistics’ about terrorists coming thru WHERE THE WALL SHOULD BE! and then picturing his fans nodding along…u see why it’s so hard to comply with the “Don’t call them stupid!” request? Can I say ‘Brightness Challenged’?

What Maher is referring to here is a report from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection that claims they only encountered six immigrants at ports of entry along the southern border between October and March (2017-18) – who were known or suspected non-American terrorists.
Isn’t one too many? What kind of ideology thinks it’s okay for even one terrorist to cross into our country.
And that’s just what we discovered.
Border patrol agents, separate from CBP officers, stopped five immigrants from the database between legal ports of entry over the same time period.
But suddenly Trump supporters are “Brightness Challenged?” Why are Trump supporters “stupid” for wanting to feel safe in our own country?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer refuse to give Trump and the GOP a measly $5.7 billion to build a wall to protect us but Democrats have no problem giving free handouts to other countries because of their globalist views.
This is just a political sham to undermine Trump. They want his supporters to despise him if he doesn’t get wall funding. It’s a devious political tactic.
And as far as Bill Maher goes – like the rest of the liberals that perpetuate the same hatred towards those that support Trump (and the wall) – the goal is to shame supporters as much as they can.
The irony is that many of these celebrities who disregard the need for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border have walls surrounding their multimillion-dollar homes so they think it’s unnecessary. Working class blue collar Americans, unfortunately, don’t have that same luxury.
