Maher Would Prefer A Recession Over Trump

HBO’s Bill Maher spoke about the issue caused by his previous comments that insisted a recession would be worth it if it undermined Trump’s popularity. He stated his critics should “take a course in perspective.” Adding, “A recession is a survivable event, what Trump is doing to this country is not.”

Maher stated, “[A]nyone who went apeshit in the last two weeks because I said going through a recession would be worth it if it undermined Trump’s popularity has to enroll in college and take a course in perspective. A recession is a survivable event, what Trump is doing to this country is not. Democracy is about to go the way of the dinosaurs because we’ve been taken over by a dodo bird.”

“Another recession is coming, not because I’m rooting for it, because someone passed a giant tax giveaway to the rich that added trillions to the debt and started a trade war for no reason and deliberately sabotaged the Affordable Care Act and rolled back the rules for banks so they can once again gamble with our money. Those are actual policies, from men with real power, as opposed to me, who just made a wish.”

He later told people on the right, “[T]his accusing me of wanting people to starve and die is pretty rich coming from the party that has never been shy about actually enacting policies that starve and kill people. Taking away health care, cutting Medicaid and food stamps and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, forcing government shutdowns. This month’s Journal of the American Medical Association says the Trump environmental agenda is likely to cost the lives of over 80,000 Americans. So there’s that.”

“It’s okay. Because some things are more important than money, and one of them is living in a country that reasonably resembles the one that existed from 1776 to 2016. In a situation this grave, it is not crazy to use economic manipulation. That’s what sanctions are. We pinch countries in the pocketbook so they’ll act better, just think of this as sanctions against ourselves. Although, again, I can’t really make a recession happen. … I’m not rooting for a disaster, the disaster is already here. If a recession is what it takes to make Donald Trump not so cute anymore, then bring it on.”

    Maher’s opinions are of NO interest to me.

  • Of course he prefers a recession; he is a wealthy TV show host. He could care less about the minions that follow and praise him and his garbage show. Thank God, his vote only counts as… ONE VOTE. There are more of us, who wish for a better America, than lunatics like him, who would just rather see the world burn.

    Billy-Bob Maher is a freak show on two feet. I do not care for him at all.

  • Kent Powers

    If there is anything that gives me hope of the survival of this country it’s the fact that the democrat cartel actually listens to @ believes the stupid remarks made by so called celebrities who know about as much about politics or the mind set of the American people as I know about nuclear warheads.As far as Maher goes research his expertise @ record he’s correct about 10% of the time.

  • Ron C

    I just don’t understand how these creeps can stay on TV when no ones ever watches their stupidity…?

    • E Scott Hollingsworth

      Must have gotten their TV show airing rights from a Cracker Jack box

    Lier Maher has got to stop . Why people still watch this over paid non talent I have no answer.
    According to Maher he is getting a big tax break ( he makes 10 million a year) and this tax break is adding to our already huge deficit which Maher didn’t mind when Obama was adding 10 trillion dollars . From what has been reported the treasury dept has never had so much revenue coming in since Trumps tax bill.
    Just a note if Maher doesn’t like his tax savings he can write a check back to the treasury and pay them what he thinks is fair!! This guy is a no nothing liberal who has to lie in order to have a show.

  • Jmanjo

    Maher is a deviat. Should be removed from his show and given the boot!

  • Brabado

    Whoever listens to Unfunny and Repugnant Leftist Bill Maher, is a card-carrying-idiot who does not deserve to live in America but in North Korea or Venezuela…
    Always remember that those Evil Douchebags that support the Corrupt Liberal Democrat agenda, are Pure Evil Doers!
    NEVER FORGET, at the 2018 Mid-Term Elections…that this stealth Communists only want to destroy America with their sick rhetoric.
    Whats has this has been Buffoon, Bill Moyer ever done for our Nation, in the last 20 years… Just BS about those that work very hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN… Ignoring Idiot Obstructionists!
    Why is Criminal Hillary Clinton still OUT OF JAIL??? What ever happened to Pres. Trump promises to punish her, for her Crimes?
    Semper foi..

  • mike

    If the clown wants a recession,Why doesn’t he move to a chit hole country that is having one.He will fit right in

  • sean dwyer

    Bill…your a fucking idiot! If the DNC wins the election your recession will come true


    What kind of an Asshole would prefer to burn his own house down?….Maher and the Libtard Demoncraps just like him!!!

  • LiberalFascist

    Nothing he said is actually true except some of obamacare.
    He added rules to receive foodstamps like look for work and such, same with Medicaid. If democrats didn’t Rob the social security funds for welfare some of these cuts wouldn’t be needed.
    Bill Mahr is the actual dodo

  • Joseph Morgan

    He is crying? He is considered RICH, therefore he is one who is reaping the rewards by his words of “the rich getting the benefits.” All the while condemning the growth in America and lowest unemployment in years.

  • rottenrollin

    Maher is what a hole looks like.

  • Maher can be as rich as he wants, and have his dumb ass TV show! He was NOT funny as a comedian, and NOT funny on his show! But given these things, he is still an IDIOT, and always will be! A recession? What an absolute fool!

  • Oinkle Tom

    Hey Old Timer. Time to quit and go home. You’re done. You have nothing to say….not that you ever did.

  • JeanneD

    Bill Maher is a liberal idiot. I don’t know a single person who watches him, unless they are ashamed to admit it !

  • Jim Wardell


  • Ted Garcia

    I got news for this idiot and that is, even if there is recession Trump still wins. The American people know democrats will make it worse, so, – – -?

  • Vernon Davis

    This stupid TV person does not give a damn about average Americans. I think if this Nut case would stop and think he would realize that the rich make up about 2 or 3% of our population, and the 60% in the middle received help from the Trump new tax. I have never watched a Maher show. I heard it was for the mentally handicapped so I let him rant on with out my watching. - 2015 | Privacy Policy
