'I find it ironic because I think most Americans would not normally trust the government'
Bill Maher sat down with actor Woody Harrelson on his podcast “Club Random" to talk about everything from Woody's many "bromances" to why he doesn't trust Big Pharma or big government.
Maher brought up the Hulu series "Dopesick," which is based on the nonfiction book by the same name and alleges that pharmaceutical companies and various government agencies were involved in the development, testing, and marketing of OxyContin, a highly addictive opioid that has killed hundreds of thousands of people.
"So [if] the pharmaceutical industry is capable of that," Maher said. "Wouldn't there be something in, like, suggesting maybe more boosters than were necessary?"
"Some people are still getting boosted right up to this very day," Harrelson noted. "And I find it ironic because I think ... most Americans would not normally trust the government with helping them, you know. Like what does the government actually do to help you?”
“They don't trust the CDC, Americans. We have the polling on it," Maher stated.
“Okay, so here's the CDC promoting that we have to do all of these things, right? I just, I don't like profiteering in war, you know? Think of the billions of dollars that have gone to Big Pharma. But I was getting back to my original point. The last people I would trust with my health is Big Pharma and Big Government because neither one of those strike me as caring entities," Harrelson added.
On “The Rubin Report” Tuesday, BlazeTV host Dave Rubin — who will be joining Maher's "Club Random" podcast for a two-hour uncensored conversation this week — played a video clip of the conversation and reacted with: "Pothead Woody from 'Cheers' making some sense, going the libertarian route!"
