"If Donald Trump isn't proof of white privilege and Obama isn't proof that POC have to be twice as qualified I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS."

Not a fan of Maher, but he nailed it here.

I stopped at the first example. Now Ryan is a moron, no question about that BUT we never slowed down the spending at war let alone quit spending it.

I'd roll my eyes at that statement also. Yes, Bill, hypocrisy, look the definition up.

So, there are no such examples running the other direction?

Would it excuse examples from the right?

Bill Maher is a far left comedian, and entertainer. He is not qualified to comment on anything political.

It would expose Maher's hypocrisy.

We all know most politicians are like this, so pretending that it is one side just shows partisanship. Isn't Maher guilty of partisanship by implying that partisanship is only on one side?

I noted he was. That is what made Jon Stewart so good. While he leaned left he wouldn't excuse one side for what he would condemn the other for doing. That's pretty rare.

One requires 'qualification'? ROTFLMAO! I've read your political comments...are you qualified?

I saw the skit..it was funny. I laughed and moved on.

For sure..had Obama said any of the shyte that Trump spouts---I doubt he'd have gotten the same response from the Right. So yes..hypocrite is the word of the day.

BTW...all the examples that one might wish to quote in rebuttal --- would not change or excuse the Right's singular blindness when it comes to Trump and his 'ways'.

I think he's at least as qualified as a trust-fund baby turned reality-show host with a star on the Walk of Fame.
