On the ‘New Rules’ portion of HBO’s Real Time show, host Bill Maher took a shot at the husband of Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis for showing up for her nationally televised release from jail wearing overalls and a battered straw hat with a green visor.
After mocking a Florida man for being arrested for masturbating in a Burger King, and pointing out to Native American tribes that rain dances don’t work (“Rain dances don’t f*cking work, people. My front lawn is now made of dirt.“) Maher turned — once again — to Kim Davis, the anti-gay county clerk who chose to go to jail rather then allow her office to give out marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Specifically, Maher drew attention to the widely ridiculed picture of Davis and her husband Joe posing with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
“New rule: Someone has to tell Kim Davis’ husband who showed up for her big release event looking like this,” Maher said , pausing for viewers to take the photo in,” That when people already think you’re brainless, it doesn’t help to dress up like the scarecrow.”
