During HBO’s non-broadcast ‘Overtime’ segment of Real Time, host Bill Maher pressed his panel to come up with a sure-fire winner the Democrats can put forward in 2020 because “we cannot f*ck this up” next time.
While guest panelists Andrew Sullivan and former Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA) stated it was too early to make a prediction with close to four years remaining, Maher went out on a limb.
“Who is going to be the Democratic candidate in 2020, we cannot f*ck this up,” Maher began. “We can’t live under the illusion that the electorate is going to go for somebody who isn’t charismatic, okay and a great salesman. Hillary Clinton proved you can be completely competent, but you can’t win in an election with, ‘I know I’m not that great, but this guy is nuts.'”
With Sullivan remarking, “I’ve scoured the landscape and I don’t see anyone,” Maher interjected.
“I know a guy, I think the people in this state do too, [current California Lt. Gov.] Gavin Newsome,” he said to applause. “This guy should be president. He can win. He’s going to be governor in 2018, and I know that’s a short time to be governor before a four-year run — I don’t give a f*ck. His slogan should be ‘Hello, I must be going. Nice to stop by California, but I got other things to do.'”

Tomi Lahren melts down over popularity of new Ocasio-Cortez documentary: ‘What the hell is going on?!’
Fox News' Tomi Lahren had a furious meltdown on Tuesday over the popularity of Netflix's documentary "Knock Down the House," which follows multiple Democratic presidential candidates over the course of the 2018 midterm campaign, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
After showing a trailer for the documentary, Lahren angrily denounced Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal, which Lahren falsely claimed would ban cows.
Lahren then fumed that the documentary "somehow" won the Audience Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, while also getting a "100 percent approval rating" from critics listed on the movie-rating website RottenTomatoes.com.
Ex-GOP congressman: Kyle Kashuv’s racist and anti-Semitic remarks are ‘exactly what we see’ from mass shooters
Former Republican U.S. Congressman David Jolly is blasting conservatives defending 18-year old Kyle Kashuv, and warning them that the remarks the Parkland massacre survivor are similar to those made by mass shooters themselves.
Kashuv drew massive right wing support on Monday after revealing that two weeks ago Harvard rescinded their offer of admission after learning of comments he made when he was 16. Among them, writing the "N" word 11 times in a row on a group Google document, saying a fellow student, a girl, liked "N*gg*rjocks," and – which has not been widely reported, wrote, “fuck the Jews” and “kill the fucking Jews.”
Meghan McCain snaps after co-host asks to vote out McConnell
Meghan McCain erupted after her colleagues blamed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the extreme partisanship that has paralyzed Congress.
"The View" panelists were discussing Joe Biden's campaign promise to end political divisiveness, and McCain stood largely alone as her co-hosts said the former vice president's position was unrealistic.
"I think it's very clear that Mitch McConnell changed the rules for Merrick Garland," said co-host Sunny Hostin. "He's been obstructionist from the very beginning, it's why the Supreme Court looks the way that it looks, and McConnell has played partisan politics from the very beginning. He has had no interest in being bipartisan, and all of a sudden Joe Biden thinks when he's president Mitch McConnell is going to play ball. He is not going to play ball at all, he's going to only play ball if you play on his court with his rules, and I'm not buying it."
