My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
This was one of Bill Maher’s best shows, Even though or despite the fact that Danielle Pletka that was there,
He ended the show by offering Trump $1000000 of his own money and promising to raise a billion dollars from Hollywood and ordinary people to get Trump to resign. this would make Trump an actual billionaire which is something that would be really great for him. Would love to see him step down and maybe we can raise five hundred million dollars to get Pence to quit.
This has been a difficult week for all of us. The news does not stop. It’s like a fire hose hitting you and pushing you and pushing you and pushing you. I have to turn it off off and now because it’s overwhelming. I need my sanity and right now we’re living in insane times.
As fortunate to get tickets to go see Real Time with Bill Maher tonight. it’s located at the CBS studios in the heart of Hollywood and is one of the more iconic buildings here in Los Angeles.
He started off of a one-on-one talk with Salman Rushdie he was talking about his new book Quiote. it’s a modern version of Don Quixote that revolves around the presidency of Donald Trump. The magic of this book is the fact that Donald Trump although the main character is never mentioned. there are other parts of the book which seemed really interesting including the fact that unfortunately Salman rushdie’s sister was killed by opiate overdose. In the book he uses strippers on poles dancing to lure doctors in. turns out all they needed was about $30,000 to lure doctors in to giving out these deadly drugs.
The panel discussion was lively. One of the panelists got booed several times, Noah Rothman is no virgin to my boose here in my apartment while he’s doing his thing on MSNBC. When he said that there were good scientists on both sides of climate change the room erupted. Interesting Lee the former head of the EPA under President Obama was there and she was a great foiled for him. I thought that Bill Maher was office game but maybe because I was watching it live. I watch him religiously every Friday night and I think now that Game of Thrones is gone it’s the only reason I keep HBO.
I was truly looking forward to seeing Barney Franks who has been one of my heroes for decades now. I guess my politics have moved away from his because I did not agree with many of the things that he said. He’s against the impeachment and thinks that it’s going to give the unmentionable one in the oval Office a second term. I don’t think so
I got home at about 10 p.m. and got to watch the rerun of Lawrence O’Donnell telling us that now there has been a Wall Street journal report that says that Donald Trump has been squirreling away all of the conversations he’s had with Russia and Saudi Arabia in a private server meant for only the most highly classified information our country has. Why would he care to Hide these conversations when he has conversations with the under hundred and ninety-three countries of the world all the time? Inquiring minds want to know.
Inquiring minds want to know.
if you live in Los Angeles or ever get a chance to come make sure to get tickets to go see Bill Maher, it’s well worth it.
Watch the whole show but if you want to watch Bill ask the current occupant of the White House to Champion climber change then you’re in for a treat at 57 and a half minutes into the show.
Bill Maher pledges to be his supporter if he doesn’t want a t and embraces the fact that we are burning our planet away. This may be all funny but I was talking to a friend today and I don’t know how young people today can face the future. I’m 65 and I have maybe 30 years left if I’m really lucky but the worst of the worst won’t happen for 50 years and Bill Maher is right we need to do something and we need to do something now and if it means my voting for Trump if he embraces climate change then yes I will do that as well. But, unfortunately you know that if he embraces it today 5 minutes from now the Koch brothers will call him, oh I forgot, the Koch brother will call and tell him to change his tune or else.
Let’s be honest, we have an incompetent in the White House.
He doesn’t understand government or its need to exist.
He doesn’t understand America’s place in the world or why we need to maintain it.
He doesn’t understand that this is one World with one ecology and we are at the biggest wrecker of the environment and we need to address that but again he doesn’t understand.
He doesn’t seem to have a big grasp of anything other than his ego.
So when you hear veteran journalist like Bob Woodward who covered nine presidents say that he was shocked by something that the Tangerine nightmare said you need to listen. I watched an interview on Bill Maher and it’s telling that even Bob Woodward has temptations about where our country is going under the leadership of this man.
On the same program, Bret Stephens, who used to work for the Wall Street journal now who works for the New York Times and is no longer Republican was on. I remember the days that I would yell at the TV when Brett Stevens was on but Trump has made those go away. Bret Stephens openly said that he is worried that on January 20th 2021 we’re not going to see an orderly exit from the White House if Trump is voted out. I agree with him. And that’s chilling.
When I speak about a potential Donald Trump presidency the first thing I tell people is imagine him giving the State of the Union address. Well now Bill Maher has done it for us. And if you like what you see you’ll deserve the President you get. AVB Click on this link to watch the video in full
