Back in the day, a comment like this would get a person fired from a tv show. He's gonna get a pay raise because he's serving up that red meat hate for HBO's liberal audience.
Gee, he "celebrated"? You mean, like, he threw a party?

Your line seems purposely biased and misleading. We might agree that Maher's comment was in bad taste, but it's not unusual for people to be glad that someone they despise is gone. (I'm sure many were glad when Osama Bin Laden was gone.) Maher's comment was not "celebrating."

Yes, you're right, years ago people acting outside norms would have been fired. By those standards, many of Fox's public figures would be gone by now - for instance, far worse was Sean Hannity at a Trump rally.

People on the left can say whatever vile things as they please without any consequences. Itís called freedom of speech.

Does China have a free market.

Do you have any problem with China putting high tarriffs on goods from American companies.

You and other leftists seem to consistently be pro protectionism in other countries while pretending you are also for free trade. It can't be free trade if the other country has jacked up tariffs on our exports.

The link indicates he was probably talking about Flake and Corker, which is why he said 'they' rather than him.

Both of them are no longer in Congress and both of them were a problem for him when they were there.

We didn't vilify McCain, he was a villain. He ran on repealing OBamacare and then he betrayed us. You think that this is great.

Completely different issue which has nothing to do with your support of Trump's authoritarian flavor of socialism

McCain had credibility, wasn't a draft dodger and didn't sit there and grovel around Putin.. you think weak orange man is great. Btw obamacare required freeloaders to purchase insurance. I guess you righties stopped caring about personal responsibility after Obama helped get a Republican idea into law
