This is why the blue wave is a big blue myth. So incredibly telling. Uber liberal, fake news outlet CNN is blasting uber liberal Bill Maher for wishing the economy would tank so Trump would lose in the 2020 election cycle.
So, let’s just start with what CNN had to say about Maher.
Bill Maher may have made his cruelest and most ill-informed comment yet — and that says a lot, given his track record — on his HBO show Friday night.
Maher, during a discussion of the economy under Donald Trump, acknowledged that it was “going pretty well.” Then Maher, the sometime liberal, shared his hope that the economy would tank to hurt Trump politically: “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point. And by the way, I’m hoping for it. I think one (way) you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy.”He then jaw-droppingly added, “So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”This is wrong on so many levels. It’s despicable for Maher, who is wealthy enough to have donated $1 million in 2012 to a super PAC, to root for an economic downturn in exchange for political gain.
