Bill Maher gives Bernie Sanders a full-throated 'F*ck yeah!' endorsement as Commander in Chief
HBO's Bill Maher - screen grab

Despite presidential candidate Bernie Sander's less than stellar responses to foreign policy questions during the Democratic debate earlier this week, Real Time host Bill Maher gave the Vermont senator his full-throated support saying, "F*ck yeah!" when asked if Sanders was ready to become Commander in Chief.

With MSNBC analyst Alex Morgan saying she believed Sanders won the first half of the debate dealing with jobs and the economy, she stated that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton clearly was superior when it came to the foreign policy portion.

"Do you want Bernie Sanders getting off Air Force One making a deal with--," Wagner asked Maher. "Seriously -- on foreign policy -- do you think that he's at the level that we need--"

Wagner never finished her question as Maher jumped right in.

"F*ck yeah!' he exclaimed to cheers from the audience.

"The guy who voted right on the Iraq war?" he shot back. "Yeah I do."
