Maher, Olbermann make fun of ‘typical GOP voter in bubble’
In Bill Maher’s mind, a typical Republican voter resides in a bubble, literally.
On a new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher Friday evening, the comedian thrashed the GOP as usual, focusing on climate change deniers like Rick Perry in the show’s latest installment. Maher felt the media needed to call those still in opposition to the science “climate assholes.”
As his “New Rule” segment continued on, Maher then walked away from his desk and proceeded to encounter a large bubble with a person inside. The person’s residence in the bubble represented a “typical Republican voter” blocked off from reality.
Maher invited Olbermann over to try and talk facts and reason to the bubble man. But none of their words couldn’t get through the impenetrable field of the GOP voter’s mental (and actual) bubble.
It prompted Olbermann to try one last desperate factual attempt. “Wrestling is fake,” the Current TV host said.
