There's something coming up about him, huh.
"Some women lie though!"
I'm betting Maher also has skeletons in the closet.
Wow, that’s even worse than I expected based on the headline.
Maher staying trash. What a punchable face.
Exhibit #64531216 why Maher is trash.
Al hasn't put forth any effort to want us to forgive him so nah...
If Al wants to fight, fight for our respect back. Otherwise go away.
Why Al Franken of all people?
He's completely unnecessary to the future of the democratic party and yet, Mahar isn't the first dope to wax lyrical about forgiveness.
Let's replace Franken with someone just as outspokenly progressive but not a pervert maybe?
Damn it is worse than I thought, I expected nothing and he still managed to put his head farther up his ass
Maher is trash
Yeah that was pretty fucking terrible of Maher.
Reminder don't ever bother debating where Maher falls on the political spectrum... it's pointless and just encourages his defenders to start a circular argument
Just argue that he's useless, because he is.
The Franken stuff probably doesn't deserve life-long banishment from service the public, but at the same time we've already moved on. There are other shining beacons of progressive leadership that have better earned their spot. Give someone else a chance instead of going back to the well.
"Stop it with this accountability, nonsense!"
Or the LA mayor
Bill Maher has always belonged to that school of white male douche comedians who can't understand why women/minorities/liberals get so ~~~sensitive~~~ when people make casual jokes that stereotype them and diminish their humanity. No biggie!
No wonder he rushes to defend a while male douche who groped multiple women.
I usually agree with Bill but this was one of the few New Rules segment where I just couldn't get behind him, and you could tell the audience didn't either.
Al let so many of us down. We need more people in place now who evoke the best of Al and his fearlessness when it comes to challenging other senators and members of congress but without the sexual assaulting part.
Um, he says that being “touchy feels” is part of being a politician. What the fuck are you talking about, Bill?
I'm awfully surprised hearing this from a guy who repeatedly threw the N-word at a black panelist on his show to explain why it's appropriate that Sarah Silverman gets to say it. I'm surprised that that's the guy who says "it's just a joke" and "no one died".
also let's not act like biden isn't a creepy ass motherfucker for that
Nah, he gotta earn that shit.
Only part I agree with is that he shouldn't be banned for life. As long as he's actually sorry and trying to be better.
In fact, from the day he resigned lots of "allies" were saying he was somehow betrayed by his senate colleagues.
Bill Maher should have retired a decade ago. Gtfo
"Women should be heard"
"He noted the seven other accusers who said Franken grabbed them and singled out two of them for “being ridiculous.” "
"Maher added that “being touchy feely” is “part of the job” as a politician."
Yeah, doesn't sound like you're listening there, Bill. And of course, all the mansplaining and stuff following that. 'Cause it's up to him, a man, to determine what's a big deal and what women apparently just need to get over and stop being all "ridiculous" about, 'cause he would know best and not the people that, y'know, actually have to deal with that stuff.
But women should definitely be heard! Because you're definitely listening to 'em, Maher, and it's definitely, positively how you came to those conclusions. Right... Mmhmm...
This take is straight out of a trash compactor.
Literally full blown "boys will be boys" with those Biden comments.
Get the fuck out.
Was thinking what he said about Biden being grabby, but what Franken did was worse. Unless pics come out of Biden I guess.
By Maher's logic, Stephen Colbert should run in 2020. He also championed people like Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner. Maher is a creep who holds company with creeps.
"Being touchy feely is part of the job".
How about no!
Nah the party is fine without him.
