Bill Maher says that we all need to stop focusing on symbolic political fights and focus instead on defeating Donald Trump.

Courtesy of Raw Story:

In this year’s election, Real Time host Bill Maher said on Friday, progressives must be willing to set aside their own pet causes in the name of stopping Donald Trump from being elected. 

“You know me — I have seeds in my urine,” said Maher, who has openly called for marijuana legalization. “But if someone told me that pushing for pot might cost Hillary [Clinton] Ohio, until Nov. 8, I’m gonna shut the f*ck up about it.”

Maher makes some very good points, and I especially liked when he suggested that candidate Obama only said that he was against gay marriage in 2008 to keep meth head Sarah Palin from ending up "four feet away from the Oval Office."

Hard to believe he is going on hiatus for a month. I think things are only going to get crazier, and more out of control, from here on out.

If we can even imagine such a thing.

      Maher is right, Americans get so precious, pushing their little barrows and thinking their personal issues are so important. Look at Rachel Maddow, STILL pushing Bernie fucking Sanders every time she mentions Hillary Clinton because she's still so bitter because she 'felt' that President Clinton QUOTE didn't have my back as a gay woman UNQUOTE.

      So go vote Republican, bitch.

      5:56 PM - I have long since grown tired of political "experts" telling me how I should feel one way or another. I am reasonably intelligent, can do my own research, and draw my own conclusions based on my personal values.

      Maher is my breath of fresh air at the end of the week.

      They are very close friends still and neither is ashamed of their friendship. She gets a lot of heat over it from the Fox News guys but continues their friendship regardless. I find it amusing to think of Bill and Anne "burnin' one" together, getting baked and pondering the political realm :-)

    President Obama has stated that talking with his daughters changed his view on gay marriage. We are never too old to learn.

    Don't worry, due to lack of any gun control sadly there will be another mass shooting soon enough to ruin his vacation and he'll have to respond and give condolences for the 100th time.

    I have been saying something similar since the RNC convention. I can empathize with Republicans who are not the loud hate base of Trump. This election must be about the most sane, rational and logical candidate best for our country instead of voting for the party because of rigid personal values.

    She has always relied on her so called looks to the detriment of women everywhere.But this is nothing new and men have the same problem but no where near the extent women have depending on the job.

    Salesman for example depend half of their sales on looks and that is what politics is people selling their ideals.


    Hillary Clinton wears pantsuits because they are practical. I have listened to Rush Limpballs and that was one of his talking points he made fun of that. This is the kind audience he gets.

    I encourage all of you to wade in the muck that is C4P and Breitbart just so you know what is out there, sure you may feel like you need a shower after but you will see the level of how important this election is.

    We joke about Palin but there is something fundamentally wrong with even a small segment of society worshiping a shallow grifter who plays on fear. Remember Hitler played on fear and Trump and Palin are doing it now.

    Hillary is not going to take away your guns. Now you can choose to live your life paranoid or live in the real world. I have nothing against people owning guns and i am a moderate liberal and there are so many of us out there who have seen no middle ground . I don't care if your Bi or Gay it's none of my business. Now we have been placed on the sidelines fighting wars that should not be an issue.We watch as human rights are made an issue by Trump and Palin.

    We see a candidate like Trump ride a wave of doom and gloom and this is not the United States Of America i know. No one running for President should ever question the resolve of Americans. We are the mutts, we are the sum total of people looking for a better life.. Look at your ancestry are you totally British or are you a meld ?We don't build walls in this Country we build freedom.

      Methhead can't get out from under her own issues to sue anyone. The truth would come out, and she can't afford that while grasping onto what little of her political life she thinks she has left.

    So trump is on stage saying that Hilary may have mental illness? Lol. Good Grief !!! He seriously should quit this World exhibition of classic mental illness, get some help, write a book, pay his bills, settle his victims claims, and try to make up for his terrible behavior. I am beginning to feel bad for his family. They all look fearful of him. He is a mean hateful bully.

      Why do you think he likes low-information people? Only the most stupid of stupid, the most cowardly, the most paranoid would ever listen to him.

      His family members have all chosen money and power over ethics.

      As someone who refused to be manipulated by a parent trying to use my inheritance to control me, I have no sympathy. I didn't get the money but kept my integrity. They chose the money.

      8:15 -
      I will reserve judgement on Barron because I don't know enough about him. I admit he has little control over his physical circumstances because of his age.

      However, I've spent 18 years working in elementary schools, much of that with intermediate students. I've seen that some children, even very young ones, can be greedy, arrogant, dishonest and cruel, especially if they are raised to think that others are beneath them. I won't assume he's like his father and siblings, but I also won't give him an automatic pass just because of his age.

      The best thing that could happen to Barron would be for his parents to divorce and for Melania to get full custody. Then he'd at least have a chance.

  14. This episode of Maher's show really caused me to do some new type of thinking.

    We WANT our politicians to be truthful, of course, just like we WANT world peace.

    But in REALISTIC terms, anyone who wants to not just RUN for office, and have a chance to holler about how we need this and that--but to actually WIN the position, so they can work on getting SOME bills passed, has to "bend" the truth.

    For, as we all know good and well:

    AMERICANS CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

      But Trump lies 77% of the time. In fact, he just makes stuff up to make stuff up. No purpose to a lot of it. In fact, he can't tell the difference between reality and the stuff he makes up. That's why he doubles down on his lies. (If you can call them lies since he can't tell the difference between his lies and reality.)

      Isn't this sort of delusion the very definition of insanity? He cannot tell the difference between reality and the stuff he makes up. Not even when confronted with reality. Not only when shown proof that he's lied. The NFL said they never sent a letter about the debates but he still believes his lie. The Koch Brothers never contacted him about any sort of meeting nor any support fiscal or otherwise. Trump still believes his lie.

      He's spent at least 50-60 in this alternate reality, never being challenged on the falsehoods he just makes up.

      This is totally different from a candidate stretching a truth or telling a half truth in order to gain some political leverage.

      Trump lives in a fantasy world. He is almost completely distanced from reality.

      That isn't political strategy. That's INSANITY.
