Responding to claims that the “Brexit” vote was fueled by “xenophobia” in Britain, HBO’s Bill Maher asked a thought-provoking question of his panel: “Is it really phobia if you have something to be afraid of?”

Maher noted that 52 percent of British Muslims believe being gay should be illegal, according to a poll.

“What percentage of American Republicans believe that? Can we deport them?” liberal commentator Paul Begala replied.

Maher immediately pushed back.

“They think it should be illegal?” Maher asked incredulously.

“Sure,” Begala replied.

“That’s bulls**t, Paul,” Maher said. “Stop it.”

Maher went on to say Islam is need of reformation and the millions of moderate Muslims are afraid to speak out against the radicals due to "violent intimidation."

"And every time someone says 'Islamophobia,' it gives the people who are intimidating cover," he added.
