Once again the liberals are rewriting the rules to suit their inherent horribleness. Leftist rodent Bill Maher wants to pull Al Franken out of the mothballs to take on Donald Trump. “But what about the sexual assault that forced Franken to resign?”, you ask. Well, according to Maher, it’s not that big of a deal because Franken didn’t actually murder anyone. It’s important to understand that this “no death” clause doesn’t absolve conservatives of sexual assault, just liberals.
On Maher’s show Real Time, he made a plea to bring back Franken as ringer to take down Trump. Yes, this is as dumb as it sounds.
“We need Democrats to keep a laser focus on the one issue that really matters; finding out what is Trump’s kryptonite. I think it’s ridicule. The one thing that gets under his skin…is being made fun of…We need someone who can shred Trump like a standup takes down a heckler because Trump is a heckler. And to fight him, we need a comedian…I, Bill Maher, think it would be a great idea if Al Franken got back in the game,” said Maher.
There is of course a major flaw in Maher’s premise because Al Franken is simply not funny. Plus there’s that thing how Franken resigned in disgrace from the Senate after numerous women accused him of sexual assault, including photographic evidence of him grabbing a woman’s breasts as she slept.
Don’t worry, Maher has that covered:
“I can hear purists already saying, ‘but what about the allegations?’ America always overreacts and then has buyer’s remorse. We did it with 9/11 and Janet Jackson’s nipple and bird flu and Bill Clinton’s blow job and certainly one of the all-time overreactions was ‘Al Franken, sex predator,’” said Maher.
You got that? Maher believes that we as a country overreacted to the terrorists attacks on 9/11 that took almost 3,000 American lives. I didn’t think it was possible for me to like Bill Maher less, but here we are.
After saying that 9/11 was a nothing incident just like Clinton and Franken’s sexual predation, Maher adressed the specific allegation of Franken grabbing Leeann Tweeden’s breasts as she slept.
“It’s a joke. He apologized for it. No one died,” Maher said.
Okay, I get it now. It’s perfectly fine to sexually assault a woman as long as you don’t kill her and then say sorry afterwards. Well, if that’s a rule, Donald Trump hasn’t killed anyone either, so Maher needs to get off his shit. Oh yeah, I forgot this is a liberal rule, which means it only applies to liberals.
“It’s time to get Al off the bench so he can come back and do what he does better than any other Democrat: taking down right-wing blowhards. I want to see Al Franken debate Donald Trump. And by the way, so do you,” said Maher.
Okay, i’ll bite. What right-wing blowhards has Franken ever taken down? Or for that matter, who besides himself, has he ever taken down?
Strangely enough, I agree with Maher that Al Franken should come back and run against Trump in 2020. Nothing could be better for Republicans than if the democrats pushed an unfunny sexual predator as their presidential nominee. Franken makes Hillary Clinton look like a viable candidate.
