Bill Maher stopped by the Tonight Show and bantered about with Jay Leno tonight. Among the topics covered was Maher's take on Rick Santorum and his outdated politics regarding birth control, gay marriage and life in general which included the nugget that "he believes life begins at erection."
Bill Maher is no fan of the Republican party, especially when they are engaging in tactics meant to divide the country, while at the same time deriding the idea of a divided America. On Real Time tonight, he made no bones about where he stands on the subject and let fly with a particularly sharp indictment of way Republicans seek to divide our country into the Real America and the elitist others.
By now we all know the story of how Edward Davies, Mitt Romney's father-in-law, was posthumously baptized into the Mormon faith fourteen months after his death. Being a staunch athiest, like Davies was, Bill Maher couldn't stand that and tonight on Real Time, he decided to do something about it. Here he is performing the world's first posthumous unbaptism.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck had quite a bone to pick with Bill Maher on The View this morning about a joke he'd told about her months ago, and pick it she did. One would think he'd mind being attacked, but on tonight's Late Show, Maher told David Letterman he was actually pleased with how she reacted: "Thank you, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, for making me look good!"
On last night's Real Time, Bill Maher said a lot. He made fat jokes about secret-hoarding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, compared Michele Bachmann to Sarah Palin, took a final taste of Weiner, and more. But none of that matters, because this clip—which features Maher's joyously jarring 30-second summation of HLN loudmouth Nancy Grace—is the only one worth watching.
After confessing on Monday that he tweeted a picture of his penis, Anthony Weiner's online dirty laundry quickly piled up. And on tonight's Real Time, Bill Maher and Jane Lynch gave one such piece of it—Weiner's X-rated Facebook exchanges with Vegas blackjack dealer Lisa Weiss—the dramatic reading it deserved. The video (which contains strong language, obviously) is above.
Since retiring from his CNN show in December, cuddly curmudgeon Larry King has written a book, embarked on a stand-up comedy tour, and even hawked breath mints, so it was no surprise that he found the time to show up on the panel of last night's Real Time with Bill Maher. And in true old-man style, King had one immediate, pressing question for Maher: Why is your studio so damn cold?!
When Bill Maher brought up Senator Jon Kyl's intentionally false statement about Planned Parenthood's propensity to perform abortions on last night's Real Time, panelists Ed Schultz and Michael Steele disagreed with each other about the egregiousness of Kyl's fib. It was contentious, yes, but boy oh boy was that just the tip of their shouty iceberg!
On tonight's Real Time, Bill Maher declared that Republicans believe in "being against everything [Obama] is for" and "must nominate for 2012 a man who is the exact opposite of Obama." He even created one for them! Meet Karab Amabo.
During last night's Real Time, Bill Maher decried shows like Secret Millionaire—which he claims "try and put a happy ending on America's enormous wealth disparity"—in a rant against the glamorization/idolization of the rich by the poor.
