Maher acknowledged Biden has accomplished much good for America. However, he then reduced Biden to a disposal object due to his age. Millions of millennials and Gen Zer’s would prefer to see younger political commentators on the air rather than listen to Bill Maher. It’s contradictory to say someone has performed competently but isn’t competent to continue doing their job. That is what Maher did to President Biden with his comments. Was it Maher’s intention to harm Biden’s chances to beat Trump or, due to his age, are his skills at political posturing declining?
Interviewing DeSantis legitimized him in the eyes of millions of voters. That’s a bad thing for America. DeSantis may actually be more cruel than Trump. During his interview with De Santis, Maher played softball on many of the issues he reports to disagree with him about. DeSantis sarcastically referred to the entertainment union strike as a “hiatus” and Maher said nothing. He then jokingly asked the governor, ” why are you picking a fight with Mickey Mouse.” This gave DeSantis the opportunity to say, “They picked a fight with us. “This idea of ideology-corrupting institutions, I see it in Los Angeles with the amount of crime that’s here and the homelessness.” Maher’s responses to DeSantis’s multiple anti- Disney-like cultural war conspiracy theories were weak. Maher offered no substantive challenges to these anti-diversity, cruel policies. However, he agreed with DeSantis’s attack on the CDC for the Covid mandates and his labeling of many aspects of American society as ” woke ideology”, most of which are based in white nationalist beliefs.
BECAUSE MAHER SUFFERS FROM “TRUMP PARANOIA SYNDROME” HIS STRONGEST CONFRONTATIONAL MOMENT IN THE DeSANTIS INTERVIEW WAS WHEN HE SAID, “You are trying to thread this needle that will never happen, ( regarding the likelihood of beating Trump). “Let’s face it Ron, if the campaign was going well, you wouldn’t be on this show.”
