In 2012, Real Time host Bill Maher wrote a check for a million bucks to a liberal political action committee supporting Obama.
Maher is not a billionaire—in fact, tonight he he mocked Alex Jones’ claim that he’s worth $100 million—which makes that a substantial sum.
Bill Maher is worth a 100 million dollars but he says we should ‘crash the US economy to stop Trump.’ See the video for yourself. He won’t get hurt but most people will. Is president Trump bad for making the economy better? https://t.co/rlP2tGvViR maybe Maher is right?

So tonight Maher called out billionaires who lean left. Why aren’t they doing as much as Republicans?
“Michael Bloomberg said he’s giving $80 million, which is great, to stop Trump,” he said. “The Koch brothers are giving $400 million. Where are the billionaire liberals? Because Sheldon Adelson and that crowd, thy give tens and hundreds of millions… you cheap f*cks!”
Politics runs on money, he said.
“The game is being played on the million dollar level. It won’t do, when you’re worth $141 billion, to write a check for $250,000, you cheap f*ck!”
