Liberal journalists and commentators Chris Matthews, Bill Maher and Roland Martin told America how they really felt on Maher's HBO show "Real Time" on Friday night.
Their subject: Jonathan Gruber, the MIT economist who helped craft Obamacare and who has come under fire in recent weeks as his comments about how a "lack of transparency" and "the stupidity of the American voter" helped get the healthcare bill passed have come to light.
Their verdict: Americans really are stupid.
“Gruber was right," Maher said. "He just said what people don’t want to hear.”
Maher proudly showed a highlight reel of all the times he's personally called Americans stupid, then declared, "Jonathan Gruber, you have met your soul mates!" and questioned why there was even any controversy around Gruber's comments.
For his part, Matthews tried to deny calling Americans stupid, but Maher wouldn't let him get away from the comments, and the group quickly hushed the lone Canadian who tried to defend Americans' intelligence.
