HBO has finally released all of last week’s Real Time with Bill Maher’s show clips after originally just teasing out the President Obama interview.
Guests on the November 4 episode included David Frum, Martin Short and Governor Jennifer Granholm.
During the show, which began with a monologue and the top-of-the-show interview of President Obama, Bill expressed his fear of a coming Trumpocalypse and urged young voters to not be complacent.
He also conceded that the left has made errors in the past, saying: “I know liberals made a big mistake because we attacked your boy Bush like he was the end of the world and he wasn’t.
“And Mitt Romney, we attacked that way. I gave Obama a million dollars, I was so afraid of Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney wouldn’t change my life that much, or John McCain.
“They were honorable men who we disagreed with and we should have kept it that way. So we cried ‘wolf’ and that was wrong — but this is real!”
Maher also said that the media was fallow in their work and needed to step up their investigative duties.
He said: “The FBI says Americans should look out for terror attacks on Monday. They said they would do it but they’re so busy with Hillary’s emails from 2009.
“You know, a terrorist attack…that would be such a nightmare scenario to watch terrorists ruin our election after all the work Russia has put into doing that!”
He added: “I know this is a comedy show and I’m going to try to keep it on that level, but it’s not f***ing funny. There is a slow-moving right-wing coup going on, Media! Do your f***ing job!”
Of the millennials being a bit less than enthused about the political race, Maher said: “Like they say in the action movies ‘The s**t just got real.’ Yeah, I know, you’re young and idealistic. These young people on the news and they say things like, ‘well Donald Trump, I don’t like him but Hillary, I can’t vote for a liar!'”
Maher used New Rules to make a point, with humor, saying: “Trump’s Commandments are like the regular Commandments with LOL at the end. Adultery? check. Cursing? check. Stealing? check. Bearing false witness? Check. False idols? Check. Oh yeah, he is the world’s least godly man.”
Overtime saw Maher fuming at the Democrats and the head of the FBI, James Comey who has hamstrung Hillary Clinton over her emails at every turn.
Real Time with Bill Maher airs Fridays at 10pm on HBO.
