“Democrats are now the party that can’t tell the difference between Anthony Weiner and Al Franken,” Bill Maher said at the end of Real time Friday night. He went on to bemoan the growing rigidity of the left and the growing liberalism, well, of the right.
“Once upon a time, the right was offended by everything. They were the party of speech codes and blacklists and moral panics and demanding that a TV show had to go. Now it’s us. We’re the funniest now. We crave fun from everything: Halloween, the Oscars, childhood, Twitter, comedy. “
Maher continued in his New Rules segment, “The US government works best like a mule: Republicans do business in the front, the Democrats in the back.”
“[GOP Congresswoman] Marjorie Taylor Green is reported to be in polyamorous tantric sex, ”the host said in disbelief. “And Ashley Babbitt, the MAGA warrior who died storming the capital was apparently part of a treble.
“It’s a long way,” Maher said, from when Jerry Falwell “blasted the Teletubbies because one of them was allegedly gay because he was purple.”
“[Former Democratic Congresswoman] Katie Hill… who like Ashley Babbitt was in a triple and pictured holding a bong… that was too much for our new Puritan Democratic Party.
“We are the threefold people! People of the bang! Tantric sex gurus! urges Maher. “We got stuck in the mud [at Woodstock] and the bra burns and “ignites and listens and gives up”. It’s the party that doesn’t bake wedding cakes for gay people!
“It’s time to go back,” he said in closing, “because frankly you’re not good at being us and being bad.”
