Is it just me or does Bill Maher not like Biden?

At least that’s the impression I got last night.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

2. Bill Maher causes a lot of consternation....

 

.... for a lot of liberals who have a hard time accepting the fact that the left is not infallible.

I don't think he is anti Joe Biden, and often defends him, but it seems he does have some issues of concern.

....


"Bill Maher Pushes Back Against Criticisms of Biden’s Old Views: He Has ‘Learned and Moved On"

After CNN’s Chris Cuomo suggested Democrats may need to look to a young person with no problematic policy baggage to lead the party into 2020, Maher replied, “Why not just somebody that’s learned and moved on?”

19. you asked....

 

"When did he defend Biden?" You did not ask when did he defend Biden five times. You did not ask when did he defended Biden 10 times. You asked a question, and I responded with the appropriate answer.

21. I will concede that "often".....

 

.... was the wrong word to use, but he has defended him more than once. He also defended him when Biden was getting all the crap about the touching accusations. I hope this is satisfactory to you.

4. He believes

 

Biden can't motivate millennials to come out and vote and that millennials have enough votes to sway the election. The combination of dislike for Trump and a candidate that motivates the younger crowd could be a major factor in determining the winner in November.

13. If the VP candidate is

 

a strong progressive Dem woman they would for sure vote for Biden. We are a Center/Left country. You can't always get what you want, but you can get what you need. Many of us want to beat trump and then move forward. We've suffered enough. We can't blow this.

5. Bill Maher loves to tell jokes that indicate that he is smarter than everyone else.

 

Last edited Sat Jan 25, 2020, 09:04 AM - Edit history (1)

His comments seem to alternate between unique insights and complete cluelessness. I believe that this is because he has more than one joke writer, and their political competence seems to vary. A big clue to what kind of jokes he likes to tell is the name of his previous show, "Politically Incorrect". Maher seems to think that things would be so much better if the world had much more of a live and let live attitude. That is fine. However, he also seems to deeply hate the damage that has been caused by organized religion, so he seems to have no tolerance for that at all. So, his messages seem to be, "Live and let live", "Stop getting offended so easily", and "Organized religion is ruining everyone's life".

7. His show seems to have went downhill a lot over the past few months,

 

harping on political correctness constantly, always having to have one or two GOP assholes on his panel, doing veiled slurs against immigrants. I look for him to be praising Trump some time in the future, that's why I quit watching. It used to be something to look forward to on a Friday night, now I need to find a substitute.

10. Stop watching Maher. Trust me: You'll feel better.

 

His third or fourth Why Liberals Suck diatribe did it for me. Life's too short.

11. Bill Maher is the nattering nabob. Don't count on him for anything important.

 

And they ruined the Real Time theme song for some reason.

Depressed as the rest of us. I think he is progressive but not sure if that will beat Trump.

15. What Maher likes best is snark. He occasionally makes good points with the snark, but not always.

16. Bill Maher is the kind of person the scorpion and frog story

 

is about. Awareness of this kind of person was already ancient when Aesop included it in his fables 2600 years ago. They're not incapable of holding beliefs, but they attack their own because it's their nature.

A second lesson included in some renderings of the fable is, "You knew what I was."
