Now as you can see by watching that Maher is very kind to Bernie Sanders and gives him numerous compliments and credit for a lot of things for which I am not completely convinced he deserves credit.
He also says that Sanders should stay in the race just as long as he wants, which is something else I disagree with.
However in the end he also points out the obvious, which is that Bernie lost and Hillary is the duly nominated Democratic candidate.
Well apparently THAT is an unforgivable slight to Bernie and his supporters.
Courtesy of the YouTube comment section:
sorry Bill you are wrong! the election was not fair and square..just ridiculous. there was blatant voter fraud, complete and total media bias, DNC coronation and I can go on and on..she even paid millions to have trolls to spread propaganda on social media..
Bernie Sanders was "fair and square" and he and his supporters were screwed over at every turn..Bernie or Bust.
Bill maher was always an establishment clown.
Thank you Bill Maher. We need more Bernie supporters voting for Trump. Keep pretending Hillary won fair and square!
She won fair and square? Fuck you, Maher. She cheated. We all know that. Congratulations on endorsing a war criminal.
of course he's gonna say fair and square. he doesn't wana get crucified by the media now does he? he just wants to keep his image folks.
Fair & Square? I don't know what type of weed you're smoking Bill, but you better stop smoking the type of weed that make you think Hillary won fair & square.
it was not FAIR!
why r u not reporting all the election fraud?? they r still counting in california and bernie is flipping counties as we speak! do some research
Actually I did do the research and that last part is not true.
Does anybody else think that some of these comments sound oddly familiar?
By the way today Jesse Jackson endorsed Hillary Clinton as well:
Jackson, speaking in Chicago, said he trusts that Clinton will look out for the interests of marginalized communities including refugees, immigrants and the poor.
"We trust her to work on health care, to fight for the poor ... for the willingness to fight for civil rights," Jackson said.
Yeah, well we all know what a shill for corporate America Jesse Jackson is don't we?
You know how they talk about going from the sublime to the ridiculous? Well we are chin deep in the ridiculous right now.
