No. And why would anybody care about Maher's fears? He is an ENTERTAINER! He makes a living saying stuff that people laugh at.

You mean I am supposed to give a damn what a fool like Maher says? Nah, I don't think so.

With most voters voting for Hillary I can see why he would be worried about that. Fortunately the US has the electoral college to keep the US from becoming like North Korea.
Wrong.

Most voters voted for someone other than Hillary.

Add the votes that Trump, Johnson, Stein etc. received together = more votes than Hillary received.

Hillary got a plurality. She did not get a majority.

President Trump is not a drama queen? Far more than most liberals for anyone paying attention. It is beyond mere embarrassment for him at this point.

Do agree the North Korea comparison by Maher is an exaggeration, but his concerns are justified.

This little pissant doesn't even understand what those in North Korea have endured. How dare he belittle their suffering just because he's butthurt that Ann Coulter was right and that he now looks like a fool after Trump won.

Lefties....again:

Get. Over. It.

Well, there are certainly several shared elements of both leaders, apart from risible hair.


For instance:


-They both rose to prominence through their fathers.
-They both led sheltered privileged lives, due to their fathers.
-They both surround themselves with yes-men.
-They both are somewhat delusional about how others perceive them.
-They both are volatile and fickle.
-They both are bullies and braggarts.


I'm sure others can chime in with more.

Did you pay any attention at all to the Trump campaign last summer/early fall? Much of it was based on fear and insults, directed against women, the disabled, veterans, a Mexican, judge, the press/media etc. Threatened to jail Clinton at one of the debates. The alt right loved it at the rallies. It definitely revealed fear. How someone could not have noticed that is bewildering?

Now that he is being investigated by Mueller, they are whining and so our some of his supporters here on city data.
