Bill Maher has lengthy been a celeb spokesman for the left. But these days, as we’ve beforehand famous, he’s nicely on his approach to shedding his liberal membership card.
The newest instance got here throughout an look on Jimmy Kimmel Live, when Maher accused the mainstream media of “scaring the s*** out of people” over the COVID-19 pandemic. Ad due to it, Democrats are afraid to go away their houses, he added.
“I have to cite a survey that was in The New York Times, which is a liberal paper, so they weren’t looking for this answer,” Maher instructed Kimmel, whereas addressing among the cities he intends to tour right here quickly.
“But they were talking about this, the question was, what do you think the chances are that you would have to go to the hospital if you got COVID. And Democrats thought that was way higher than Republicans. 41% of Democrats, and the answer is between one and five percent.”
He continued by addressing the left particularly.
“41% of Democrats thought it was over 50%, another 28% thought it was 20 to 49%,” Maher added. “So 70% of Democrats thought it was means, means, means larger than it actually was.
“Liberal media has to take a little responsibility for that, for scaring the s*** out of people.”
Of course, a few of this message was self-serving, as Maher will likely be performing, and promoting tickets for these performances. But but once more, his level was truthful.
“And the reason why I’m bringing this up is because it’s much harder for every touring act to sell tickets in blue states,” Maher stated. “Whereas in red states, it’s all good to go. So I just want to say to those people in Raphael, in Pittsburgh, and New York, I ain’t gonna give it to you. I promise, it’s safe. We’re doing everything we can. There’s distancing, there’s masking. Enjoy. Live life. Embrace life.”
