It’s not terribly often that the right side of the aisle finds themselves agreeing with liberal comedian Bill Maher, but the instances in which this does occur are growing more frequent as the HBO host ages.
Maher, like his contemporary James Carville, have both appeared to be growing disgusted by the radical wing of the Democratic Party, and all of wild-yet-asinine policy points that they are pushing.
This week, Maher took his criticism a bit further still, pushing back against the leftist media’s admitted censorship of the Hunter Biden “laptop from Hell” story.
“Real Time” host Bill Maher blasted the widespread suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential election.
During Friday night’s panel discussion, Maher highlighted the controversial comments made by liberal podcaster Sam Harris, who openly approved of the “conspiracy” to bury the brewing scandal that implicated then-candidate Joe Biden in order to defeat President Trump on Election Day.
“Is it okay to have a conspiracy to get rid of Trump?” Maher began. “They were talking about Hunter Biden’s laptop, which was a story and now all the mainstream press has finally admitted it was a real story. It was a real laptop.”
Maher then went for the jugular.
“Now look, let’s not pussyfoot around this; he was selling the influence of his father, Joe Biden. I mean, most political sons do, but let’s not pretend at least that was going on… so Hunter Biden’s laptop was buried by the press. Even the head of Twitter Jack Dorsey said that was a mistake… So Sam Harris says it was appropriate for Twitter, and the heads of Big Tech, and the heads of journalistic organizations to feel that they were in the presence of something that is a once-in-a-lifetime moral emergency, meaning Trump. So he’s saying it’s okay to have a conspiracy, to get rid of somebody as bad as Trump.”
The Facebook suppression of the story compelled Donald Trump to suggest that he should either be reinstated as President or see the 2020 election re-contested, suggesting that the FBI’s pressure campaign on Facebook constitutes electoral interference.
