    I'm sure BIll knows that Trump did that with others, and the person claimed to be mocked for disabilities doesn't even move that way. But knowing that doesn't matter. What matters is assuming the character of the opposition equates to the interpretation of the display. Before I knew exactly who he was talking about (coming in late) and not knowing the guy was disabled, I thought he was just mocking the backpedaling behavior of the reporter, who I did remember was reporting differently before. So the interpretation is based from prejudiced bias of any who enter the opposition camp.

    I always find it that leftists don't really care what Conservative say or what they do, but Conservatives seem totally obsessed with hunting down any anti-Trump video and thumbing it down like children. Or like Bill Nye how they all march in lockstep like Pavlovian dogs when Nye is confronted on Fox News, or the millions of facebook pages and twitter accounts. Whose being sensitive here again? They are fucking obsessed with the left, they seriously can't let anything go and hold grudges all day...........Remind you of someone?

    Have to be honest... I was one of those "their both bad" people. This was kind of a slap in the face. Bill makes a great point. I tried to sound intellectual and point out both their flaws like most people did. What I wish I would've done more efficiently was look at what both candidates plans actually were. I just hope for the next election we can actually hear news stories about why we should vote for one candidate over the other, not why we should be afraid to vote for one or the other.

    People who say Democrats and Republicans are the same are stupid and apparently don't read. I'm tired of how stupid the country has become. People actually voted for this and complained about Obama being terrible. Stupidity needs to have a price. Flood these depressed Trump states with free heroine and take away older people's coverage. But only for those with a high school education or less. Watch the GOP problem take care of itself.

    The applying our thoughts to bullshit and what chomsky said about sports is so true. I had this friend when i was younger who i thought was kind of dull. Didn't know much about science or world affairs but then i heard him talking sports with another friend. The amount of facts and lucid analysis was stunning. I decided right then that we were equally intelligent we just had different focuses in life. I was raised by scientists who loved to travel and his parents were hardcore sports fanatics.

    Ugh the amount of lies. Trump wasn't making fun of the guy's disability. That's just his go to reaction to depict indecisiveness. He used it against Ted Cruz, an Army General and even against himself in a 2005 interview. Just a simple google of the facts would've given you that information. If anyone's being lazy here it's you Bill Maher. And if any party in this election played with people's ignorance it's the democrats.

    Because ppl think theyre actually informed politically when they watch Bill Maher, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity or the Daily Show. America first know who your Senators and Representatives are. then tell me a bill they passed or veteoed that hasnt been brought up in the mainstream. Im no Mr Peabody on the subject of politics but anyone can trace a bill and call their rep or the POTUS.

    Bill Maher, I normally agree with you, but I disagree about millennials. You may not realize it, but you come across as condescending. You are a decent person and I don't think you mean to. If you talk to millennials you will find they are concerned about the same things we are. Their careers, bills, kids, sports. Car payments, house payments. AND WHO TO VOTE FOR. They are good kids. And they are a lot smarter and more worldly then we give them credit for. It shouldn't come as a surprise, because they are 'our' kids. We raised them. They came out OK.

    For a political commentator, you sure seem naive of the fact that politics is jus' a game of bullshit. There are no political parties, Republicans or Democrats, etc. It is all the same people pandering to different demographics. They do whatever they want and then shift the blame to the other side when it goes awry. Clinton is a crook, and I know enough to never support her. Instead of persuading people to vote for her anyways, how about fixing a system that claims you can vote for whoever you want...between these two assholes. Yea...some democracy.

    The fact that Hillary's emails over Benghazi (4 deaths) (which found nothing incriminating) has had 100 times more attention than Bush's illegal war in Iraq (based on lies about weapons on mass destruction and complete disreguard for the Geneva Convention), which resulted in thousands of our solders dying and hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis dying, is why America and it's people are among the most uninformed, unintelligent, vindictive people that don't care about truth or facts.  They just care about beating the other party at all costs; truth, facts, and peoples lives be damned.

  • DarkEnergy7

    The amount of people on here obsessed with hating Hillary over unsubstantiated paranoid bullshit are exactly what Bill was referring to and are the reason why I knew Trump had a real chance of winning. A bunch of pretend wannabe posers that want people to think that they're smarter and cooler than they actually are instead of taking the time and effort that it takes to actually be those things.Most Gary Johnson voters saw him as a Bernie alternative even though they're polar opposites. This is exactly why people think Americans are stupid. The DNC didn't "rig" anything, Bernie (my first choice) lost because he was struggling with the minority vote. Would it have been nice to have him win? Of course. Is Hillary "perfect"? no. Is she worse than a million Hitlers combined like so many people say she is? no. And before anybody asks: No I'm not a "Hillary shill". No, I don't think Hillary is a "saint", yes I would've loved to see Bernie run on the Democratic ticket, and no she doesn't have her enemies killed. The fact that people seriously believe that last sentence is astonishing.

      +Tony Menza And Bernie would've continued the same thing. At the end of the day he's a politician like the rest of them. Again, I'm not saying that Hillary is perfect but the fact that people feel the need to act like Hillary invented this stuff is stupid. And don't forget that much of what you hate about Hillary is from decades of Republicans running a smear campaign against her in the hopes that people will go against her. And you want to talk about people dying under and/or from a president? What about Bush Jr? Remember 9/11? Remember the Iraq war? That's what helped create ISIS. At least Obama got Bin Laden ( which Hillary helped with). Trump, by his own admission, has no idea what he's gotten himself into with the presidency. He literally has no clue what he's doing because he has ZERO experience. He's a reality TV star, not an experienced politician. Not only does that jeopardize our safety, but it's made us a laughing stock across the world. Hillary is respected outside of the U.S., no not by EVERYONE, but there are world leaders who aren't Putin that respect her. Trump is a joke. And since he won the election there has been a significant increase in racist attacks and attacks against Muslims. He appointed a white supremacist to work for him. The people that he is putting on his staff are only going to make things worse for the Middle East. the U.S., and many other places. But yea, Hillary giving speeches to Wall Street is worse than all of that. Jesus.

    • Tony Menza
      Tony Menza 9 months ago

      There is nothing paranoid about knowing about Hillary Clinton taking facials from Wall Street bankers and the defense contractors, acting on their behalf, and tearing apart the Middle East with her imperialist, dark age, draconian, bullshit foreign policy. Ask the families of the 1,000s of Middle Eastern women and children who have died as a direct result of her and Barack Obama's interventionism in the region. The two of them continued the pillaging of that region that started in 1953 with the Iranian coup d'etat and has continued ever since. So yes, she is just as bad Trump, if not worse. She's not even ashamed about her love of war. Talk about a psychopath.

      Not deliberately but by breaking the law and taking information from a non government official and telling people its true and acting on it she got them killed.  She also shared government info with this man that had no right to read it.  If your actions get people killed you go to jail, she should and I hope she does now that she lost.
