Most of the people on this site aren't either. I mean, people can't even define the terms socialist and communist and you expect them to be "qualified" to comment on anything political?

My point was, most comedians touch on politics. It's part of the human condition, often absurd, and laughing at the absurd is the whole point.
That would be fine; but what we are hearing is pure hate. Everything Trump has accomplished is not evil. We need a President that supports our troops, our police and our firefighters. We also need a President that supports the rule of law; if people don't like the laws they can work to change them. It is one thing to enjoy humor; but it is no longer humorous when all you hear is one side - then it is time to turn the channel. There is no reason to enjoy being tortured while we are paying the bills!

I've been asking since January when he was going to enforce the law and go after the employers hiring illegals........I'm still waiting.

If Trump can ignore laws, why can't others?

Look at you all jumping on this like white on rice.
Maher really got all of your panties in a bunch. Didn't he?

Leftists and their "what ifs". My mother told me to stop doing that when I was 8.

My thoughts exactly. I couldn't have said it nearly as well as you did. As for a comedian, he used to be funny, back in olden days on HBO, but since he has become a jerk, which is not funny.

Most of the people on this site don't have their own TV show influencing a relatively large audience who actually take Maher seriously when he just says stuff to enflame.

I think what I resent the most are entertainment programs that throw politics into the mix. My wife will watch one of the reality housewives programs and one will bring up current politics - like we give any credibility to these pampered, spoiled, women! With HBO most or all of their comedians are super liberal. Maher is not alone. I am getting really tired of supporting those that think so differently than I do. Just as soon as Game of Throwns is over they will probably not see another one of my dollars. I have to wonder if others are boycotting these liberal lefties?
As a liberal, I really don't like Bill Maher. I think he's a misogynist pig. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
