Today, the sun rose in the East. The other night, just as predictably, Bill Maher opened his mouth and something stupid came out. You can follow that link for details. The short story is that he defended “his friend” Chris Matthews and doesn’t think Matthews should be fired for what most of us (not Maher) would call sexual harassment.
Of course Chris Matthews should have been fired for that, but he should have been fired long ago for his moronic remarks, as well as just his general entitled laziness.
I’m going to guess that Maher has a harassment skeleton or two in his closet. He reeks of creep. But even if he doesn’t, he’s terrible. He’s not funny, a lot of his guests suck, and he thinks his sexist hot takes are somehow edgy when they’re just misogynistic. Can’t he just be fired for that? Does the ability to eke out halfway decent ratings on a cable show mean that he’s got a lifelong appointment (as Matthews seemed to have until he was finally canned)?
