Maher Goes Full Throttle On The MSM For Lying About COVID

Liberal Comedian and Talk show host Bill Maher is showing us once again how far he strays from the norm with his view on COVID. Maher appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and explained how he felt that the MSM and Dems are fearongering when it comes to COVID. Kimmel being the diehard Lib he is tried to refute Maher, but he was ready with facts.

Maher brought up the subject of COVID after trying to plug his new tour.

“I have to cite a survey that was in the “New York Times,” which is a liberal paper so they weren’t looking for this answer. But they were talking about — the question was, what do you think the chances are that you would have to go to the hospital if you got covid? And Democrats thought that was way higher than Republicans. 41% of Democrats — the answer is between 1% and 5%. 

KIMMEL: Okay.

MAHER: 41% of Democrats thought it was over 50%. Another 28% thought it was 20% to 49%. 70% of Democrats thought it was way, way, way higher than it really was. Liberal media has to take a little responsibility for that. For scaring the [ bleep ] out of people. And the reason why I’m bringing this up is because it’s much harder for every touring act to sell tickets in blue states. 

KIMMEL: Oh, interesting.

MAHER: They’re afraid to go out of the house.”

Kimmel then brought up how Maher caught COVID.

“KIMMEL: You did get it.

MAHER: Embrace life. [ Applause ]

KIMMEL: You did get it.

MAHER: I got it after I was vaccinated.

KIMMEL: After you were vaccinated, right, and you —

MAHER: I had no symptoms. That may be because I was vaccinated. But let’s not even get into that. I know you and your boyfriend, Howard Stern — [ laughter ] Are very paranoid about this. It’s a little weird that I got it after, but many, many, many people have had the same situation.”

Kimmel later asked if Maher thought the country would ever come together.

“KIMMEL: But do you think we’re ever going to — there’s ever going to be a time where — do you think it’s possible, even that we can come together? 

MAHER: Well, that’s a great question. And to me, one of the keys to that is to stop talking about it. Stop talking politics. When I was a kid, you may remember the same thing, people didn’t talk politics all the time. There was no Facebook. You know? Facebook should go back to being what it should be, humble brags, cat videos. Finding out who from high school is gay, fat, or dead. But instead — instead it’s people arguing with some kid you went to third grade with about Brett Kavanaugh. 

KIMMEL: Uh-huh. [Laughing]

MAHER: You want to know how to heal America? Shut up. Shut the hell up. Stop talking politics all the time. Stop trying to convince people. It’s a big country with lots of people who don’t think like you, no matter what side you’re on, and you’re not going to convince them, just accept it, like you do in a relationship. [ Laughter ]” 

Watch The Clip Below.

Maher is definitely going against the grain here. Dems/Libs have been making a huge deal about COVID to the extent that it would not be surprising if they called for another round of lockdowns. Maher’s statistic about the percentage of people needing to go to the hospital really shines a light on how much the MSM has been distorting the facts.
