Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” used his show this weekend to decry what he views as the anti-free speech stances on both the right and left. He started with fat shaming, saying the left is humorless about it and unrealistic about the health implications of obesity.
He then went after President Donald Trump for deriding the press, accusing him of having “totalitarian Tourettes.” He also went after the left, accusing it of fostering an “anti-free speech brigade” called “college.” He joked that the most popular major is Outrage.
Maher also said:
“Sometimes bipartisanship isn't the solution, it's the problem. You might be surprised at how many times the far-left and the far-right, otherwise known as the right, actually work together to make a problem worse.”
Chris Salcedo half agreed with him on today’s “Chris Salcedo Show,” feeling that Maher isn’t understanding why the president criticizes the press. He said that today they are “letting opinion masquerade as news,” and cited Sharyl Attkisson’s op ed in The Hill about the public’s distrust of the media.
