Bill Maher: Trump fans are primed to be angry about Obamagate — they just don’t know what it is

Published

on

HBO host Bill Maher appeared to be doing his Friday night show from the local Jewish Community Center under what appeared to be a chuppah from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” set.

Maher opened with an attack on President Donald Trump’s bizarre decision to start popping hydroxychloroquine.

“First he said, let’s try drinking household disinfectant, now he’s on this sh*t, today Vladimir Putin said, ‘I hope I don’t have to poison this mother f*cker, I don’t think we have anything strong enough,'” joked Maher.

He noted that throughout Trump’s entire life he has never been an alcohol drinker, never had a beer with the guys at a NASCAR tailgate, never smoked pot in college.

“But at the age of 73, Laura Ingraham says comes by and says, ‘hey man put this on your tongue,’ and he’s like, ‘I’m all in,” said the host.

“This drug is for people who have Lupus or Malaria, so wrap your mind around this: the president of the United States has put himself on a drug for two diseases he doesn’t have. Also, he’s starting on a drug next week for vaginitis,” said Maher. “Just to be safe.”

When it comes to Obamagate, Maher said that Trump is a master at changing the subject and that’s his new tactic to distract from the coronavirus crisis.

“What a scandal,” Maher quoted Trump saying. “Yes, already losing steam, this scandal, because it lacks that crucial ingredient that most scandals need to have: an allegation. Trump fans are all ready to be all angry about this but they don’t know what it is! Even Glenn Beck’s Trump board says ‘To Be Determined.’ But I guess the bright side of this is that all 50 states are now at least partially reopened. But again, no plan. No consistency. It’s the opposite of Afghanistan, we have no entrance strategy.”

‘Get the hell out!’: Trump supporters freak out when protesters show up to Lindsey Graham event

Published

on

A small group of protesters came to one of Lindsey Graham's latest campaign events, and they were quickly attacked by supporters of President Donald Trump chanting "four more years."

Graham's event seemed to have more support for Trump than for Graham at his own weekend event. It's unknown why the Trump supporters were not chanting for Graham.

"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers

At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The South Carolina senator is fighting for his political career and many other Republicans struggling to hold onto their seats. Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.

Black man takes N-word spewing racist to school — and makes him promise to never do it again

Published

on

When a racist White guy at a marina shouted out the N-word at a group of Black men, he probably didn't count on their response being a history lesson, but that's precisely what happened.

While President Donald Trump is claiming that Black community members are beating and killing White racists and responding with general violence, the two men showed a different reality.

"What made you say it?" the men asked.

The white guy shrugged.

"You that racist?" one of the men asks.

"Uh, no, I--" the White guy tried to answer.

"Then why would you call us a n*gger?" one of the men asks.

Lamar Alexander refuses to stand against Trump Supreme Court choice

Published

on

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) is an outgoing Senator but he is firmly supporting President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In a statement released Sunday, Alexander claimed that the so-called "McConnell Rule" doesn't count because the Senate and the White House is ruled by Republicans. The "McConnell Rule" was never a rule until McConnell decided he didn't want former President Barack Obama to nominate another justice when conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly.

"Senator McConnell is only doing what Democrat leaders have said they would do if the shoe were on the other foot," said Alexander.
