Bill Maher blasts Pope Francis: ‘He’s dead to me now … f*ck the Pope’

Published

Real Time host Bill Maher opened his show by slamming Pope Francis’ recent statements regarding criticism of religion.

“I was starting to really like this Pope,” Maher said during his monologue on Friday. “He’s dead to me now. Oh yeah, f*ck the Pope. Look, George Bush said it: you’re either with us or against us. Apparently the Pope is not with us.”

Maher was disappointed that the Pope said religion should be off-limits for insults at the same time that he condemned of the attack against the French newspaper Charlie Hebdo that left 12 staff members killed.

“I guess he doesn’t get HBO,” Maher quipped.

Pope Francis compared insulting a person’s faith to insulting their mother, saying that even if a friend did so, “a punch awaits him.”

“Yes, just like Jesus said,” Maher said sarcastically. “I think it’s in Galatians 13 when Jesus said, ‘Turn the other cheek — into my fist, you f*ckin’ mook.'”

Watch Maher’s remarks, as posted online on Friday, below.

“Now this lady told [the niece, who is white], ‘You should have told us you were Black when you made the appointment,’” Damalyn said. “[My daughter] is so naive she says, ‘Well, I’m not Black, my skin’s brown -- can you trim my hair anyways?’”

‘If I’m Trump — I’m scared right now’: MSNBC’s Neal Katyal says Trump’s taxes will likely come out before election

Published

MSNBC legal analyst Neal Katyal on Thursday argued that President Donald Trump has reason to worry about the Supreme Court's ruling that he could not simply ignore subpoenas for information about his personal finances.

During an appearance on the network, Katyal said he disagreed with analysis saying that Trump should view the 7-2 SCOTUS ruling as a mixed bag, since it gave him the opportunity to continue fighting subpoenas even as it denied his ability to dismiss them outright.

Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’

Published

on

Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.

Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.

"I think it's a win and a little bit of a loss for President Trump," Pavlich explained. "In the sense that he will now have to deal with a number of these issues and other presidents in the future will as well, whether they are valid requests for information or not and whether they are being made for political for reasons or for valid criminal investigations."
