Bill Maher, host of HBO's "Real Time," spent a few moments warning "the young people" about the prospect of electing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump — and to sweeten the deal, he admitted liberals made a "big mistake" and "cried wolf" with their attacks on previous GOP candidates, calling them "honorable men."
Here's his plea from Friday night's episode:
Like they say in the action movies, "The s**t just got real." I know you're young and idealistic, so I've heard 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." I mean, first of all, it's just apples and oranges ... kids, I've been doing this for 23 years on TV. I've seen a lot, I know politics. This is different. I promise you, this will not make your life better. And also, once fascists get power, they don't give it up — you've got President Trump for life. 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 ... "we're so afraid of Mitt Romney!" Mitt Romney wouldn't have changed my life that much or yours. Or John McCain. They were honorable men who we disagreed with, and we should've kept it that way. So we cried wolf, and that was wrong. But this is real. This is gonna be way different.
