I agree with many of his points but he is dis-ingenious about the left. However I will conceded that Trump is a new kinda a-hole in a league all to his own. His primary base of support likely is one of the worst parts of America. I am also fearful of how the left will evolve to counter Trump the the populism behind AOC and like concern me just as much as Trump.


Unfortunately sanity, rationality, reason, and fact no longer seem to rule the day as we drift into nonsense land.

Yeah, AOC would be Trump-level bad for the US, just with a different basket of deplorables supporting her.

AOC isn’t ready yet but folks better get used to the idea that she’s going to be around for a long time.

OK I just saw this in context. BM was mocking the cliché that CIA agents get their info in alleyways. I don't see how this was racist.

“I’m just asking why you’re a Republican?” he pressed. “Because they’re not good at the debt, that was their big thing. You said limited government, they don’t do that. They took over the Congress in 2011 and they raised the debt a trillion dollars a year. They’re not good at national defense—the president’s a traitor. What’s in it for you? What is in the Republican Party for you? You were in the CIA!”

With that, Hurd explained, “I was in the CIA for almost a decade. I was the dude in the back alleys at four o’clock in the morning collecting intelligence on threats to the homeland.”

“That’s where you’d collect it, huh? Wow,” shot back Maher. “By the Popeyes Chicken?”

The usually-game crowd elicited a groan, and Maher flashed an embarrassed look, as if he knew he’d screwed up… yet again... on the first day of Black History Month.
Yup. Raging ****ing hypocrites.

It's a bull**** charge. Any reasonable person who watches the actual interview will agree. Get over it.

When all else fails, Beaver is not above outright lies.

Case in point: His claim that I referred to an African American man as a “monkey.”

It wasn't one. That's the point. It was an entirely different joke.

Again, PAINFULLY obvious to ANY reasonable person who sees the actual interaction.

This is a nothingburger. That's why it's disappearing from the media.

So what did the Popeyes reference mean exactly? What was the message there?

Maher isn't a politician and portrays himself as a comedian not a news anchor.

I could care less about Maher making a racist joke. Maher is right that the left has got to grow a spine and stop bowing to these purity tests imposed by PC police. Franken should still be in the Senate, the VA guy should just have come out and said I was a dumb stupid kid not smart enough to understand that what I was doing was racist and it was a mistake. Pocahantas tried to ride the lie Trump style and is now getting burned for it.

He was making fun of the cliché that CIA agents transfer information in alleyways. It could have been any fast food joint. That was the joke. He clearly just chose Popeye's randomly and you righties are, rather ridiculously, trying to make something of it.

It's a nothingburger. The media has already moved on from this non-story.

Was reaching for a generic fast food joint.

Just picked Popeyes out of blue whilst talking to a black man.

Everyone with a brain knows were this a right-winger you'd be dialing up the boycotts and demanding cancelations.

But thanks for the demonstration on how absolution works in The New Church.

This statement would have a lot more traction if you could've found a single non-church member as an example.
