Real Time With Bill Maher is often seen as a show that leans left. That is not, however, necessarily true. The HBO host often platforms toxic right wing personalities like Ben Shapiro, Steve Bannon and Milo Yiannopoulos.
Maher has also had significant issues with race. During a segment with Ben Sasse, he called himself a “house n*gger.” Another time, he defended Bill O’Reilly for calling Maxine Waters, “James Brown in a wig.”
And during a segment on his show this week, Maher decided to go the anti-vax route. Thankfully, he was shut down by former New York Congressman Max Rose.
During a discussion about the 3rd COVID booster shot, the host noted, “I mean, I don’t want a booster. I never wanted the vaccine, I took one for the team.”
“And by the way, do you know who doesn’t get a lot of vaccines? Millennials. I know a lot of millennials. Especially the twenty-year-olds, they don’t want it, they don’t think they need it, they’re probably right. But I tell them, I didn’t want it either, I took one for the team. But every eight months you’re going to put this sh*t in me? don’t know about that. Maybe I don’t need one. I don’t want a one-size fits all. My body may be different than you’re body.”
An aghast Rose jumped in, “Yeah, I lost you man. That’s crazy.”
