One could argue it’s the most liberal show on all of television.
Despite the regular appearances of prominent Republicans and conservatives on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” it’s a cesspool breeding ground of liberal propaganda.
But on the most recent episode of “Real Time” Bill Maher shockingly put former Vice President and current Democratic candidate for President Joe Biden on blast.
The number of Democratic candidates who have announced their candidacy for president nearly a year and a half ahead of the 2020 General Election is staggering at twenty-three.
There are some strong candidates like Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders, along with the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana Pete Buttigieg, but former Vice President Joe Biden leads the pack by a significant margin.
Maher isn’t too ecstatic about 76-year-old Biden’s chances against President Trump in 2020.
Maher said to his panel, “I do worry, I do worry. Like I’ve said about age, it’s individual. Some people look pretty good … Joe doesn’t look good. He looks like he’s on a coin.”
The age is definitely a legitimate concern because if Biden somehow beat Trump in 2020; by the time he finished out his first term he will have just turned 82-years-old. And if he were to seek out a second term then Biden would turn 86.
Now, Maher did admit he’d be “all in” on whoever ran against Trump but he doesn’t have a lot of faith that Biden is the man for the job.
Another thing Maher blasted Biden about is a recent interaction the former vice president had with a 10-year-old girl on the campaign trail when he said to her, “I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking.” That’s a cringe-worthy statement if directed at anybody, but to say it to a child is deeply concerning.
Maher said of Biden’s comment, “I worry he’s going to say that two days before the election.”
Biden has stirred controversy in recent weeks over inappropriate touching by invading people’s (specifically women’s) space.
In late March, Democrat Lucy Flores penned a damaging piece against former President Obama’s two-term vice president entitled, “An Awkward Kiss Changed How I Saw Joe Biden.”
Flores wrote a first person account for New York Magazine where she described her uncomfortable experience with Biden in 2014 when she was running for the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor of Nevada. When Biden agreed to help her campaign, she was “grateful and flattered.”
But then she wrote, “I felt [Biden] get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused.”
And if you Google Biden’s inappropriate touching, you’ll find a plethora of images that are… well, inappropriate. After the report hit the news stands, so to speak, the former vice president put out a video on social media saying he had no idea what he was doing was inappropriate and that he would strive to do better.
Then he made the comment to the 10-year-old girl. Obviously, Biden is tone-deaf to these frequent occurrences.
