Bill Maher rips lawmakers’ refusal to even vote on guns: ‘The Constitution needs a Page One rewrite’
One bright side of the Brexit vote, Bill Maher said on Real Time on Friday, was its efficiency — as opposed to Congress’ refusal to even vote on gun safety laws.
“I saw David Cameron today, I watched his whole speech: ‘I lost the vote, I graciously leave office,'” Maher said of the British Prime Minister’s resignation. “Their system works so beautifully. We can’t even get a vote on something that 90 percent of Americans agree on and can’t get a vote. Our system sucks. The Constitution needs a Page One rewrite.”
He also drew amusement from Rep. Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) tirade during House Democrats’ sit-in calling for a vote on what they call the “no fly no buy” bill, which would prohibit individuals on the federal “no fly” list from being able to buy firearms.
“He was screaming ‘radical Islam, radical Islam’ to the people who were trying to pass a bill to stop radical Islam,” Maher said.
“You shouldn’t make fun of the mentally challenged,” CNN’s Paul Begala replied. “Louie is a dope. He’s an idiot.”
