Comedian Bill Maher said Wednesday night that Republicans needed to escape the “Republican bubble” if they wanted to win a future presidential election.
“Republicans have to start getting their information from a better source than Fox News,” he told MSNBC host Chris Matthews. “I’m not kidding about this. I think this really screws them up.”
Maher joked that Republicans even had their own polls, alluding to Rasmussen Reports. Despite most polls showing President Barack Obama would defeat Mitt Romney, many conservative pundits still insisted that the Republican candidate would be victorious.
“They were shocked by this election,” Maher continued. “They have to somehow fix the way they get information, because they only talk to each other and they don’t know what is going on in the real world — and they were rudely awakened last night.”
Maher described Election Day as a victory for “pot, gay marriage, and math.”
