Bill Maher schools John Kasich on marijuana legalization: ‘We don’t tell them don’t drink alcohol’



In a discussion about marijuana legalization, Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said he isn’t for legalization and began talking about the opioid epidemic.

“My only concern about the marijuana issue is I don’t want to tell kids ‘don’t do drugs’ but you can then do this drug,” Kasich said.

“Real Time” host Bill Maher turned it around and asked why people always have to bring up children. “We don’t tell them ‘don’t drink alcohol,'” he said. He even brought up the fact that people don’t warn children against guns or even sex toys, yet somehow marijuana is considered more dangerous my politicians.

Later in the conversation, Kasich repeated his frequent sound bite that he roots for the pilot who is flying the plane and that’s why he refuses to be critical of President Donald Trump. During the panel discussion, activist Maya Wiley noted that the difference between Trump and a pilot is that pilots are trained for the job.

Black Pennsylvania Trump voter wonders if he’s still welcome in the GOP



Tuesday, CNN released interviews with Texas Trump supporters who defended his racist attacks on four Congresswomen of color. Wednesday night, Van Jones showed his panel of supporters of both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama. But things got tense when a Black Trump supporter was asked about the president's racially charged statements.

Two men, one white one Black, in the group said they supported Trump and probably would again because business was good. Two women in the group lamented that Trump's racism was hurtful for the country.

"I just go back to values," the older women said. "I value treating people with dignity. And if there is anything that is incongruent with those values, then I'm not for that. So I'm not going to put profit over my values."
