HBO host Bill Maher appeared on Thursday's "Morning Joe," where he blasted people in the far left as a "cancer on progressivism."

Maher has made the cancer remark at least every three months since March.

What are the details?

Speaking with MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, Maher said that the Democratic Party is moving too far left, and insisted that the 2020 presidential election could go to President Donald Trump once more.

According to Newsbusters, Scarborough said, "I sat through the last debate screaming at the television set, as one Democratic candidate after another suggested that [former President] Barack Obama was too conservative on health care and immigration.

"How maddening is that to you, that they're having this race to the far left?" the host asked.

Maher didn't mince words with his response.

"It's not good," he warned. "It's kind of a cancer on progressivism."

He continued by pointing out that Democrats rely too heavily on social media platforms such as Twitter to spread their messages and gauge the temperature of their audience.

"I have been saying this for years, that, first of all, you have to stand up to Twitter," the "Real Time" host insisted. "Twitter isn't us. Twitter isn't the rank and file Democrat. It's not even most liberals. But they don't do it."

Maher pointed out that Democrats are sabotaging themselves in the long run by identifying with far-left policies.

"I think the only way the Democrat loses is to convince a lot of people that they are actually scarier or crazier than Trump, which is not easy to do but I think they can," he reasoned.

What else?

The outspoken host also added that political correctness is rampant in the U.S., and many voters are predisposed to appreciate Trump because he is not politically correct.

"I think we underestimate how much America has been choking on political correctness for 25 years," Maher pointed out.

Maher, who said that he likes presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), is still frightened by the prospects of what the Democrats could do in the 2020 election.

"I love Elizabeth Warren, but she does scare me a little bit because, again, all we have to do to win this election is not be scarier to people than Donald Trump," he said.
