Bill Maher: Yes, a recession would be worth it to get rid of Trump

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Bill Maher: Yes, a recession would be worth it to get rid of Trump”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The host of HBO’s Real Talk with Bill Maher talk show doesn’t just think a recession is a swell idea to ensure the defeat of President Trump’s re-election bid in 2020, Bill Maher thinks it would be “very worth” it. It’s not even the first time the unhinged Trump opponent has made such a statement.

Back in June 2018, I wrote about Maher’s hope for a good old-fashioned recession. At that time he said, “I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”

“Sorry if that hurts people.” Bill Maher and his ilk breath such rarified air that when such inane, destructive thoughts pop into their brains, there is no filter. And, his audience applauds his bad behavior. In the opening monologue, Maher refers to Trump’s campaign rallies as Nurenburg rallies, so that’s special. His guests this week are Never-Trumper political consultant Rick Wilson and journalists Betsy Woodruff and Carl Hulse. In other words, three Never-Trumpers, which is standard. What set him off this week? Maher claims that the Trump administration is evil for rolling back job-killing regulations in the Endangered Species Act.

“I’m just saying we can survive a recession,” he continued. “We’ve had 47 of them. We’ve had one every time there’s a Republican president! They don’t last forever, You know what lasts forever? Wiping out species!”

The HBO star then pointed to a U.N. report warning how many species of plants and animals are at the risk of extinction and went on to blast the Trump administration for rolling back regulations from the Nixon-era Endangered Species Act “like any evil villain would do.”
