During the “Overtime” segment of HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher’s panel took some parting shots at Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) — who is stepping down — for wanting to strip Americans of their health care while at the same time complaining he isn’t paid enough to stay in Congress.
With host Maher noting that Chaffetz is retiring after saying he couldn’t afford to stay in office, columnist Dan Savage blistered the Republican congressman.
“Aren’t these the very assh*les who lecture poor Americans to live within their means?” Savage asked. “And to go without health care? Chaffetz is the very assh*le who said maybe you shouldn’t buy a cell phone, maybe you should buy health care instead because a health care plan annually cost about the same.”
“Chaffetz is also the one who went on television at least five times and distanced himself from Donald Trump over the Access Hollywood tape and couldn’t possibly look his 15-year-old daughter in the eye and say he was supporting this guy — and then turned around and voted for him,” added BBC host Katty Kay.
“So f*ck that guy,” Savage remarked to wild applause from the audience.
“We’ll have on this show and his chyron will say ‘the very assh*le,'” host Maher offered.
