Real Time With Bill Maher had an epic yet terrifying segment with Maher pointing out that despite all that Trump has done wrong he will still win 20 states. Maher forced us to ask the question, what if a nationalist candidate with Trump’s philosophy but with more likability was put forth, what would happen then?
MAHER: “Last November when Trump was losing in Iowa, he said in Iowa, to Iowans,’How stupid are the people of Iowa?”. Maher pointed out that after calling the people of Iowa stupid he is now leading there “So I guess he got his answer. That’s how stupid.”
MAHER: “Florida is a climate ravaged state full of old people […] And they elected, as governor, a climate change denier, who, as a businessman, oversaw the largest Medicare fraud in history.”
Via RawStory: Maher quoted results from recent polls where Americans were asked a series of what should have been very simple questions. Things like: “Does the sun go around the earth or the earth around the sun.” A full quarter of Americans got the answer wrong. At the same time, 35 percent of Americans can’t name one branch of government. Even the Governor of Oklahoma, an avid Trump supporter, got that one wrong. Sadly, only 36 percent can name all three branches and who knows how many people think the kardashianK are one of them? Maher cited a whopping 80 percent of Americans who think Ramadan is those cheap noodles college kids eat.
