On Real Time, Bill Maher targeted the first graduating class of the “Hey buddy” generation with some hard-nosed, tough-love life lessons in a mock commencement address: “The world is unfair. It’s not like college. It’s like the Electoral College.”
“It is my job as graduation speaker to tell you you are a very special group of young people and the future belongs to you,” he said. “But let’s not kid ourselves, you’re not that special, and the future belongs to China and our robot overseers.”
“You became the ‘hey buddy’ generation,” Maher observed, then adopting the tone of an overly deferential parent: ‘Hey buddy, could you put your shoes on?’ ‘Hey buddy, could you get in the car?”
“But in real life, not everyone is your fucking buddy,” he pointed out. “And that’s why, you’re fucked.”
“No, I mean, really fucked, because no one ever told you ‘No,’ or ‘You’re wrong,’ or ‘You’re in the way,’ or ‘That’s not good enough’ or ‘Wait.’ So you think the whole world is supposed to be your safe space where everything is wonderful and no one even gets their feelings hurt.”
