- In his closing monologue on Friday, Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher said Democrats are losing the abortion debate with their woke politics
- He said progressives are now using terms like ‘birthing people’ or ‘people who menstruate’ when they talk about abortion rights
- Maher went on to sound the alarm about Democrats losing a special election in a majority Hispanic neighborhood in Texas for the first time in over 150 years
- He also tore into woke Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for using terms like ‘latinx’ despite polling showing it is unpopular amongst the Hispanic population
- He claimed that many Democrats are using the Democratic Party as their own personal lawyer, which is focusing on too many different clients
In the closing monologue of his show Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday, Maher told viewers that abortion is a ‘difficult issue for the Democrats to lose, but they’re trying.
‘For decades, liberals have said, “If only men could get pregnant, this wouldn’t even be an issue,” and “abortion rights are women’s rights.” Well, that’s wrong now.
‘When the woke end of the progressive spectrum talks about abortion now, they shy away from the word “women” and prefer terms like “birthing people” or “people who menstruate” because somewhere there’s a trans man who’s pregnant and I say good for him – and I’ll be looking for his story somewhere in a future issue of Ripley’s Believe it or Not.’
‘Oh Democrats, let’s take the first f****** word a human understands: “mama” – and replace it with something bet understood by four Trotskyites at Berkeley,’ he continued.
Maher went on to claim that many different groups are using the Democratic Party as their own personal lawyers, and as a result the party is having to focus on too many different clients.
He noted that Democrats recently lost a special election in a majority Hispanic neighborhood in Texas for the first time in over 150 years.
‘Their message to you was, “I’m an American now. I’m here. Be my lawyer, not the lawyer for the migrant showing up in my backyard.’
He then tore into woke Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has defended using the term ‘latinx’ even though polling shows that it is widely unpopular with Hispanics.
‘AOC keeps saying “Gender is fluid. Language is fluid.” Yes, and Latino voters are fluid.’
In Friday’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, host Bill Maher said Democrats are losing the abortion debate with their woke terms like ‘birthing people’ and ‘people who menstruate’
He also accused people of using the Democratic Party as their own personal lawyer
Maher also noted that Asian Americans are becoming more Republican, blaming it on Democrat-proposed policies of eliminating advanced education programs ‘in the name of achieving equity,’ and prolonged school shutdowns during the COVID pandemic.
He also hit back at President Joe Biden’s efforts to eliminate billions of dollars in student loan debt.
‘The poor two-thirds of American kids who don’t get a college degree are gonna say, “Why should the people who didn’t go to college and make less money subsidize the people who did go and want more.
“You want me to chip in so some liberal arts college can build a bigger rock wall? You’re not my lawyer.”‘
He then went on to mock a pilot universal basic income program in West Hollywood, that was deemed unconstitutional because all the money was given to members of the LGBTQ community.
‘Why?’ Maher asked. ‘Because they need more money than any other people? Because no one in West Hollywood will hire a gay person.’
Maher also called out woke Sen. Bernie Sanders who campaigned on the legalization of marijuana – something Maher has publicly said he supports – but vowed to give money back to racial minorities by the drug war.
He claimed that idea is what is holding up support from Republicans.
‘As with all these issues, the wavering voter is saying to her lawyer, the Democratic Party, “Hey, so happy for you that you have so many other clients and that you care so much about their problems, and all the pro bono work you do, but you’re supposed to be my lawyer,’ he said.
Maher added: ‘That’s the thing about a lawyer: Their clients don’t are if they shade the truth. They care about winning.
‘You know what I want the Democratic Party do do? Win on the Trump issue. Finish what you started with the January 6 hearings, and make sure the guy who absolutely will try to steal the next election can’t run in it.
‘That’s what I want my lawyer to do.’
The episode came just hours after the United States Supreme Court voted to overturn the landmark Roe v Wade decision sparking major protests in Washington DC, which woke Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attended
