Though they may seem like equally vile presidential options, Bill Maher said on Real Time on Friday, there are differences between the two Republican presidential candidates.
“Donald Trump wants to build a wall to keep out creepy foreigners,” Maher explained. “Ted Cruz is proof we need it.”
Both conservatives and liberals, Maher said, have come to him asking for help deciding between the two.
“Republicans, I feel your pain,” he said. “You’re stuck between a rock and a gross place. The House of A*shole or the House of Douchebag. Team Werewolf or Team Vampire. Verizon or AT&T. But we have to accept that being a grown-up means hard choices between disgusting options.”
Having to make such a choice — which made him swig bleach at one point — had Maher comparing it to picking between the Zika and Ebola viruses.
He compared Trump to Ebola in this scenario, saying, “he’ll violently kill you right away.” Cruz, on the other hand, is like Zika because “we don’t see the damage until future generations.”
But in the end, Maher made the decision as to which Republican he feels is more awful — which can be seen below.
Russian Twitter propaganda predicted 2016 US election polls

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
