Bill Maher identifies the left side ‘Achilles heel’ in a wide-ranging interview


HBO commentator Bill Maher gave an extensive interview with Alabama magazine about the current state of comedy in America amid deep political rifts in the country.

Maher spoke In addition to AL.com He recalled his upcoming tour through some southern cities and the joys of a recent show in Nashville, where the audience seemed to be split between conservatives and liberals.

“It’s amazing to see where politically disagreeable people get in the same room,” he told the magazine. “When I said something bad about them, there were some groans from the right, and some from the left when that happened. But basically, everybody laughed together. And we have to come back to it.”

Maher, a self-described old-school liberal, has not always been embraced by conservatives, but they have warmed him up after he opposed his “warning”. And comedian Maher’s comments about rejecting former President Trump seem to carry more weight than conservative commentators at work.

He sent a message to the Democratic Party when he appeared on LOVEBYLIFE in November. “The reason you are poisoned is because you are a party with no common sense,” he said at the time.

The departure of late-night hosts Johnny Carson, Jay Leno and David Letterman, Maher told the newspaper, was largely “played in the middle.”

Each show caters to their liberal audience and “echoes the left mantra,” he said.

Social media has turned politics into a constant debate and “it has to stop,” Maher said. In many of these debates, he claimed that some of the Leftists asserted a higher position of morality.

“I think you can get a moral high point if you’re an opponent,” he told the newspaper. “I think this is the left Achilles heel right now. They often identify with the problems by feeling more than the other person,” he said.
