Maher: ‘Capt. Carnival Barker and Crazy McSleepy Pants’ are winning because US voters are dumb
Real Time host Bill Maher closed his show out on Friday by ridiculing a Republican electorate demanding that their next presidential candidate have as little political experience as possible.
“Experience? Knowing things? Republicans avoid that stuff like a gay son,” Maher said.
If Ben Carson is so proud of his own lack of experience, he argued, he should let someone with no medical training operate on his brain.
“Given some of the sh*t that comes out of his month, I think someone already has,” he added.
Maher went so far as to say that seeing Carson and Donald Trump — or “Crazy McSleepy Pants” and “Captain Carnival Barker,” respectively — topping Republican voter polls caused him to shift his stance on wanting a shorter election season.
Unlike French or British voters, Maher said, Americans are “far too dim and distracted” to vote responsibly without having a longer election season to help them winnow out the candidates.
“If our election season was just two months long, Trump would have won already in a landslide,” Maher said. “But time is our greatest ally against idiot candidates. Already you’re seeing people tiring of Trump because he has three pieces of schtick: ‘I’m great,’ ‘Mexico’s laughing at us,’ ‘constipated toddler face.'”
