There are frequent arguments among pundits about which Democrat is best suited to take on the incumbent President. According to Bill Maher, the best possible candidate to defeat Trump is Bernie Sanders as he has an “army of supporters.”

During Friday night’s broadcast of his show, the host asked, “I don’t know if voting matters, I don’t trust the returns with Russia hacking and all that. I have to say it affects how I might vote, I’ve been going back and forth about this — Do we want the progressive?”

Maher continued, “I like Bernie and Elizabeth Warren. But I feel like, and I have said, someone like Mayor Pete or Amy Klobuchar could win more easily. But I tell you why Bernie Sanders is attractive to me now: because he’s the only Democrat, who like Trump, has an army. Who when it gets to this other level, he’s got a bunch of badass motherf***ers who will get in the streets.”

The HBO pundit finished, “Bernie’s always the same guy. Elizabeth Warren, who I’ve always liked, but she kind of did some stuff I didn’t like. Obama said people just don’t want crazy stuff, is this not crazy stuff? Is she running for president of Berkeley?”
