WOW! Trump Hating Bill Maher Comes to President’s Defense
Comedian and HBO talk show host Bill Maher has never hidden the fact that he is a dedicated hater of President Trump.
Before the coronavirus came to America, he actually said that he would welcome a recession if it led to getting rid of President Trump and him losing the election.
But in a very strange act of generosity, he actually defended the President on his own show recently.
Jon Meacham, who is a speechwriter and an adviser to Joe Biden, was on the show and he was blaming the President for the 250,000+ deaths that have happened in the United States since the start of the pandemic.
Meacham said, “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.”
Meacham mocked the press conference last week by Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in which Giuliani pushed so-far unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“It’s easy to be amused by Rudy, but we’re just lucky that our authoritarians are so incompetent,” Meacham said.
“Everybody’s incompetent,” Maher shot back. “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 said.
“And an unhealthy one,” Maher added.
Maher also took issue with a claim from another panelist, Alex Wagner, a former MSNBC journalist, who said conservatives have ignored the pandemic for “completely partisan reasons.” And he blamed Republicans and Trump for “inaction.”
“We have a battle right now against an unseen enemy, and one side has no interest in fighting it for completely partisan reasons,” Wagner said. “I mean, that is a cravenness – the inability, the inaction, the dismissal of COVID-19 as a deadly virus tells you the ends to which the Republican Party and Donald Trump will go to preserve partisan worldview.”
But Maher fired back, saying: “I mean, there’s blame to go around everywhere, there’s blindness on some parts everywhere.”
It’s great that Maher is actually accepting reality.
I could say a lot about the deaths that have taken place this year supposedly from the virus.
In all honesty, I don’t believe that at least half of them are deaths from the virus. They may have died while they had the virus, but that doesn’t mean they died from it. This has been demonstrated over and over again.
I recently read a story of a man who fell off a ladder and died and they labeled it as COVID. The same thing has happened to people in car accidents.
Beyond that, a lot of deaths came as a result of very stupid orders from Democratic governors like Andrew Cuomo and Gretchen Whitmer who sent COVID positive patients to nursing homes to infect others, ultimately leading to tens of thousands of deaths of the most vulnerable individuals.
