In the recent podcast episode of “Club Random,” Bill Maher shared his thoughts on the attendees of Donald Trump’s rallies, sparking laughter and discussion among his listeners. Here’s the whole story.
During the podcast episode aired on September 24th, Maher engaged in a lively conversation with Democratic consultant James Carville.
The two discussed the type of people typically attending Trump’s events, particularly in light of an incident involving Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert.
Carville said, “The date they had the Lauren Boebert incident in Denver, Politico ran a story that she had become a Washington insider.”
This prompted Maher to say, “When they send a redneck to Washington, they do not **** around.”
Trump Rally Attendees
Maher’s comment drew laughter from his podcast guest and set the tone for discussing Trump rally attendees.
Carville remarked on the humorous interviews conducted with people at Trump rallies, noting that some comments can be pretty amusing.
Carville added, “Don’t you love when they go and interview these people at a Trump rally? It’s amusing. Of course, they have somebody yelling, ‘Trump grab my p****!’ and you look at her, and they ain’t nobody wanna get within a mile of your p****.”
The conversation then shifted to Maher’s thoughts about those attending Trump’s rallies.
He didn’t hold back, describing them as “the worst.”
They Are Deplorable
Maher even humorously questioned Carville, “You said before, some of them are deplorable. Yes. Some of them are. If you’re actually getting your a** out to go to a Trump rally, I mean, what, you don’t have the grades to get into the tractor pull?”
Then the two talked about the upcoming presidential election, agreeing that Biden has a low chance of winning against Trump.
Trump Would Be a Betting Favorite
“Right now, let’s assume the election was November 3rd of this year, and they said two candidates are Joe Biden, the Democrat, Donald Trump, the Republican, Joe Manchin and Larry Hogan, No Labels, and Cornel West, Trump would be a betting favorite,” Carville said.
Biden Will Lose
“Totally. I think we’re on the same page with Biden. Did a great service, but whereas in 2020, maybe he was the only one who could have beaten Trump, I think now he’s the only one who will lose to him,” Maher replied.
This Is Not the First Time
This isn’t the first time Bill Maher has commented on Donald Trump and the state of American politics.
In February, Maher confessed his fear of Trump.
Afraid of Trump
He said, “I am afraid of Trump on a very personal level because I don’t think he likes me. I understand why. And I don’t know what he would do in a second term.”
Trump Will Arrest Biden
Maher commented, “It’s almost Greek tragedy-like because you set off this cycle of revenge like The House of Atreus.”
Maher shared his views on the political aftermath of Trump’s legal woes, drawing parallels to classical Greek tragedy and speculating about future political reprisals.
The Public Expressed Their Views
Several readers shared their thoughts on the incident.
One wrote, “Can’t agree more with Bill Maher… even though I don’t like him personally.”
Another added, “If Trump wins in 2024, America loses, and Democracy will be destroyed. What kind of person would vote for Trump, who said he’s planning to increase the power of the Executive Branch Censor News Stations, side with Adversaries, and place himself before America.”
This Is Hilarious
A third commented, “It is hilarious that those pushing for democrat leadership are throwing grandpa under the bus. Guess their pick is killing their bottom line now. You chose the ‘me’ first party, and this is what you get!”
