Ever since the election started celebrities have been whining and moaning, making video and going on temper tantrums. These Hollywood celebrities always seem to think that because they are rich and successful, their political opinions are worth more.
Bill Maher is a man who has pissed off people from both sides. Although he is largely liberal, he has felt the wrath of liberals because he feels like they are too easy on radical Islam. Now that the election is over, there was a hope that celebrities would calm down and reflect, and maybe realize that their methods aren’t working. Instead it appears that they have decided to double down.
“We’re the losers now, so it behooves us to break out of that bubble more,” said Bill Maher in an interview with the New York Times. He went on to criticize Meryl Streep’s six minute rant against Trump at the Golden Globes.
According to Maher, speeches like Meryl Streep’s which call actors and the media to arms, were not going to solve anything. And he is absolutely right.
“It looks very insular. Just the liberals talking to themselves, which they are very good at doing,” said Bill Maher. Do you think he has learned his lesson, or is this just an act? You can read the full interview here.
