Bill Maher: A losing Trump is going to have an army of well-armed ‘knuckle-draggers’ at his disposal

Published

on

In an appearance on CNN with host Fareed Zakaria, Real Time host Bill Maher turned serious and expressed real concern over what Donald Trump and his rabid supporters will do should he lose the election.

During the interview with the CNN host,  Maher was asked about Trump’s ramped-up rhetoric in the past few days that the election is “rigged,”with  Maher saying the GOP presidential nominee is lighting the fuse of a powder keg that could blow up post-election.

Asked what he thought Trump would do should he not win, Maher was succinct: “Not good things.”

“I worry about that,” he explained. “He’s got his knuckle-draggers all riled up about the fact that this is a rigged election.”

Trump true believers who find nothing he says or does deplorable essentially makes them a cult of personality, he continued.

“He’s got an army. Whats he gonna do with that army?… I think he’s gonna be the Che Guevara of deplorables,” the HBO host explained. “I think he’s gonna be a revolutionary out there. He’s gonna be a martyr to this loss and I don’t know what they’re prepared to do. They’re already talking about things like Second Amendment solutions.”

On Thursday, during one of the final scheduled impeachment hearings this week, National Security Council official Fiona Hill demolished President Donald Trump's conspiracy theory that Ukraine, rather than Russia, meddled in the 2016 election, calling it a "fictional narrative" and noting that it originated with the Kremlin itself.

But in conversation with reporters, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) flatly disbelieved Hill's testimony, and insisted he still held onto the theory.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told me that he was not going to lose any GOP votes during impeachment.

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Thursday highlighted one of the key moments from the impeachment inquiry testimony from Dr. Fiona Hill.

"Often when women show anger, it’s not fully appreciated. It’s often, you know, pushed onto emotional issues perhaps, or deflected on other people," Hill testified.

Here's Fiona Hill on why she thinks Sondland misunderstood her anger — and how women's anger is often viewed, more generally: "It's not fully appreciated. It's often pushed off onto emotional issues." pic.twitter.com/AsMR3A9InI

Mulvaney lawyer denies Mick was ‘so heavily involved’ — despite his White House briefing room confession

Published

on

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was referenced multiple times during Dr. Fiona Hill's testimony Thursday, but Mulvaney's lawyer said he doesn't understand why.

"We have no idea why Ms. Hill believes Mr. Mulvaney was so heavily involved, especially in light of Ambassador Sondland’s contrary testimony," said Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, quoting a statement from Robert Driscoll.

As former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance pointed out, Hill recalled during her testimony how angry she was about Sondland not briefing her. She said that after hearing his testimony Wednesday and learning he was briefing Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Mulvaney and President Donald Trump. She then decided he was correct-they had separate missions and Sondland was on a domestic political errand.
