HBO host Bill Maher has a raging case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
It’s safe to say that Maher is emotionally – and financially – invested in Donald Trump losing the election in November.
But Maher revealed the one mistake he’s terrified the Democrats are making again.
Many Democrats are in denial over the effects of both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.
The Democrats put on a convention that was parts underwhelming and parts disastrous, while the Republican convention was far better produced despite not having A-list Hollywood celebrities and producers to put on the event.
But Bill Maher is not one of those Democrats in denial.
He watched the RNC and was struck by a speech gave by Daniel Cameron, the young black attorney general of Kentucky.
During his speech, Cameron ripped Biden’s statement that “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him, and that struck a chord with Maher.
During an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Maher said:
People do have their own minds…I have never been a fan of conformity. I have never been a fan of ‘we all wear pink on Wednesday.’ We all have had to do this, we all have to say this, we all have to do this then. I don’t bend the knee, and I get that people are pushing back on that kind of stuff…So look, like I was just saying, I feel very nervous, the same way I did four years ago at this time.
Maher has a reason to be concerned.
Biden’s lead is smaller than the lead Hillary Clinton enjoyed over Trump in 2016.
For months, Biden adopted the strategy of staying and his bunker and allowing the corporate press to hammer Trump on the coronavirus.
But that doesn’t look like it will be enough to carry Biden across the finish line.
He’s finally come out of the basement, and he’s still a gaffe machine.
Fellow deranged Hollywoodite Michael Moore shares Maher’s unease.
He, too, believes there are echoes of 2016.
One rich irony of Maher’s disquiet is that it’s the Left that has recently come after him the hardest.
Maher has survived at least two “cancelation” attempts from the outrage mob, and he’s called out the excesses of the “woke” movement.
But wokeness is exactly what Maher is voting for.
If the radicals got their way, Maher wouldn’t even have a TV show.
