Bill Maher mocks ‘incoherent’ Sarah Palin for being ditched by conservatives: ‘The emperor has no clues’
Real Time host Bill Maher said on Friday that he was impressed by how many conservative commentators were distancing themselves from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) following her infamous speech in Iowa.
“It was as if the scales fell from their eyes and they were finally able to admit, the emperor has no clues,” Maher said. They called her speech ‘incoherent,’ ‘a farce,’ ‘unseemly’ — words that might have stung Sarah if she knew what they meant.”
However, he insisted he was not gloating.
“We’re just here to say, didn’t that feel good to purge yourself of something that wasn’t sitting well in your gut?” he said. “It’s like when you’re sick and you make yourself throw up — you feel better afterwards. I just have one question: what took you so long? The rest of us have been watching this dog eat grass for seven years.”
Maher showed footage of Palin’s appearance at the Iowa Freedom Summit last month, before noting how her stock had fallen in conservative media circles.
“Bill O’Reilly compared her to a reality star,” he said. “Sean Hannity asked, ‘Did the teleprompter go down?’ The Washington Examiner questioned whether she should be included in future Republican events. And Bill Cosby said, ‘I wouldn’t drug her with your drink.'”
