One of the most absurd things that we have heard over the course of the last few years has not come from within the tumult of the Trump administration, but, rather, from Michelle Obama.
The former First Lady has had some prescient words for her constituents in the past, often hoping to whip a frenzy into being in order to foment the “resistance” that she and her husband are very much a part of. Yet, in one particularly famous speech, Michelle delivered one of her most infamous lines:
“When they go low, we go high”.
The implication here is that the democrats will always remain somehow classier than their political enemies.
Apparently, no one told that to Bill Maher.
HBO host Bill Maher on Friday took aim at Lindsey Graham after the South Carolina senator’s passionate speech Thursday in defense of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.
During his “Real Time With Bill Maher” monologue Friday night, Maher joked that Graham escaped from the women who confronted Arizona Senator Jeff Flake in an elevator Friday because he was “familiar with the back door.”
Later, during a panel discussion about Judge Kavanaugh, Maher said that Graham “needs the stabilizing influence of his dead boyfriend,” referring to the late Senator John McCain.
“You know what’s bad is this Trumpifying of people,” Maher said. “I mean, the fact that Trump can either find people like him or make them … Lindsey Graham needs the stabilizing influence of his dead boyfriend because he is just …”
The incredibly progressive HBO host had recently made his fair share of salient points, likely due to the sheer length of time that he’s been doing political commentary. That doesn’t mean, however, that he’ll remain on the right track, apparently.
With this drivel, Bill Maher has set the democratic party back months, if not years. And, by my count, time is running out.
