Bill Maher slams Republican ‘instant heroes’ gone wrong Cliven Bundy, Kim Davis and Josh Duggar
Bill Maher ended Friday night’s episode of Real Time with a New Rules segment that slammed Republican role models gone wrong.
“Republicans have to stop being surprised when their instant heroes turn out to be embarrassments,” Maher said. “They’re so anxious to buddy-up to the forgotten good people that when a Kim Davis or a ‘Joe the Plumber’ or a Cliven Bundy come along, they rush to say ‘Now here’s a real American’ when they should be saying ‘What’s up with this asshole?'”
Maher then specifically turned his attention to Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, the woman who has refused to comply with federal law and issue same-sex marriage licenses.
“Kim Davis turned out to be everything conservatives hate,” said Maher. “She gave birth to two children out of wedlock and she’s been married four times. According to her, the answer to ‘What would Jesus do?’ is ‘everybody.'”
Maher then recounted Cliven Bundy’s racist statements and George Zimmerman’s ongoing encounters with law enforcement, before setting his sights on Josh Duggar.
