Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thedailybeast.com: “Bill Maher Finds a Way to Blame Democrats for George Santos”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The ‘Real Time’ host ended his first episode of 2023 by arguing that liberals are the ones actually responsible for putting serial liar Santos in office.

Bill Maher closed out the 21st season premiere of HBO’s Real Time Friday night by taking on the scandals surrounding Rep. George Santos (R-NY). His big takeaway? Democrats are to blame for believing his many, many lies.

“Of course, we’ve seen liars before,” the host said of American politicians, “but it was always about tacking from the extreme to the center of your own party.” What Santos “pioneered,” he argued, is the idea that “since we’re all in our own hermetically sealed media bubbles,” he could “pretend to be everything to voters in both parties.”

While, on the one hand, Santos pandered to the right by going all in on Trump’s election lies, Maher claimed that the real reason he won his election is that he convinced the left to come out for him—something not exactly supported by evidence.

“How did a Trump-loving, election-denying white nationalist get elected in a Democrat-leaning district?” he asked. “Simple, he told them what they wanted to hear too.” He left out the fact that New York’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin significantly out-performed Santos on Long Island.
