The host of HBO's "Real Time" on Friday blasted Republicans for sex, drugs, and Rock and Roll.
"And finally, new rule, Republicans can't spend decades chastising liberals for being too permissive about sex and drugs and then be completely silent about Matt Gaetz," Maher declared.
The host read a quote from CNN.
"The partygoers, at times dressed in formal wear from a political event they'd just left, mingled and shared drugs like cocaine and ecstasy. Some had sex," CNN reported.
"Okay, wild hotel suite parties? That's our thing," he said. "Democrats are the party of free love, fun, and forgetting where you parked your car."
"Republicans can not be the conservative, stick-up-your-*ss party and then take our drugs and f*ck our women," he complained. "American government looks best like a mullet: Republicans do business in the front and Democrats party in the back."
"JFK used to have nude pool parties in the White House. Now the politician who comes closest to carrying on that legacy is Matt Gaetz? No," he said.
"You could always count on Republicans to be the fuddy duddies, the wet-blankets, the boors, they were the Moral Majority," he said. "If it was fun, Republicans were against it. The got apoplectic over Clinton getting a bl*wjob, they invented abstinence-only sex education, Mitt Romney has never seen himself naked."

Longtime GOP adman and Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson blasted Republicans on HBO's "Real Time" on Friday.
"One party -- I"m sorry -- is a policy party," host Bill Maher said. "They're wonks."
"And one party is trolls. Would you agree with that?" Maher asked. "Trolls and wonks."
"The party I helped build over 30 years has become a bunch of people who want to be transgressive, they want to get out, swing their d*cks around and have people yell at them and scream, 'You're cancelling me for burning the house down!' While they're burning the house, for the most part," Wilson said. "Joe Biden is doing a good job in part because Joe Biden doesn't get up in the morning and think, 'How am I going to set the world on fire by tweeting some crazy sh*t?'"
The panel, which included Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), discussed GOP efforts to oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from her leadership position and seat in Congress.
"She represents, Bill, something so dangerous to them," Wilson said. "Because , to be a supporter of the Republican Party, you're all in on the myth that Trump won the election. You're all in on the lies that support it, you have to build a scaffolding of lies every day. Like the pyramid of bullsh*t has to get taller and taller."
"And [Liz Cheney] won't do it, she just won't do it," he said. "As someone who knows the Cheneys, these people -- they don't f*ck around, they're serious people."

Attorney Charles Peruto, Jr. is challenging Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, a progressive reformer.
"I have entered this race as a Republican because it is my belief the other fine Democratic candidates for District Attorney running against Krasner will eventually lose, because of the money behind him put up by George Soros," Peruto explains on his campaign website. "Having the firm belief that Larry Krasner will be the Democratic nominee, because of the millions he is able to spend, and the misinformation fed to the public by our liberal newspapers, I stand ready, willing, and able to face him in the Fall general election, and he won't know what hit him. We will be building a website with real facts from real cases with their outcome involving guns and gun violence."
He has built an interesting website:
"There shouldn't have to be a section for this on anyone's campaign site, but because some people will not let this go away, I must address it," he wrote. "In 2013, I was dating a girl for about 6 weeks, and didn't really know her."
"In short, the best way to start with this is the Medical Examiner's report. She was a .45 BAC. That means that 45% of her blood was alcohol!!! The cause of death was alcohol intoxication, but because she was found in my tub, everyone, including myself, assumed she drowned," he said. "The long story short is that I was not her only boyfriend, but it was my apartment where she expired. If it was another boyfriend's apartment, you would have never heard of the case."
Here's how the legal website Above The Law explained the case in 2014.
"Last May, a 26-year-old paralegal by the name of Julia Papazian Law was found dead in the bathtub of her boss and boyfriend, prominent Philadelphia defense attorney A. Charles Peruto Jr. The news set tongues wagging in Philly. It had all the elements of a tabloid tale: a beautiful young woman, a wealthy and successful lawyer, and possible organized-crime connections. (Peruto has represented such prominent alleged Mob figures as Joey Merlino and Nicodemo Scarfo.) Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams convened a grand jury to investigate Julia Law's death," David Lat wrote.
But in the end, Williams issued a one line statement: "The investigation into the death of Julia Law has concluded and there was no evidence of criminal activity found."
