2. How is a Bernie supporter who voted for Clinton in the general responsible.

You did say all of them. You should really edit your OP, as it is very divisive as it is now.

And all of the Bernie and Jill Stein supporters are responsible for whats about to happen.

3. I really didn't hear that. He keeps saying trump won't leave,

but I think Maher is wrong on that one.. Other than that, Maher seems positive about election.

Sanders and others did all they could to convince Maher he’s wrong about trump staying.

The last part of New Rules was the hardest I’ve laughed in a long time.

4. I found it more sad than funny. ACA gone. Roe v Wade gone. More money in politics.

 

Republicans have no shame and just keep getting more powerful.

6. I would agree. But, I look for laughter in this plight, especially when

the end is likely close, if we vote like never before.

14. Trump will definitely leave peacefully..here is why..... If Trump refuses to leave there will be

the videos of him resisting to leave, or being carried out,& those videos will stop him from being on shows and
from being interviewed. He won't have a following because Donald Trump will always be asked.....
...............
............."..WHY DIDN'T YOU LEAVE THE WHITE HOUSE PEACEFULLY, YOU LOST BY A LARGE MARGIN?"

and Trump will lose by a large margin..just wait and see. ..
.................... And Trump will leave peacefully or always be
asked the above question. And he will not want to answer that question, and be known as the

loser of an election who....'DID NOT LEAVE PEACEFULLY......OR ....................

THE ONLY LOSER ...ETC.........................................


Trump will leave peacefully for another reason. His friends, family & political party will insist that he
will leave peacefully & not make a scene that will hurt them all.

17. Basically agree. I really don't think he cares. I never thought he wanted presidency,

he wanted publicity. But then his hatred, racism, and enjoyment of saying crud that excited millions — Deplorables were OK with him — attracted a bunch of voters and Democrats thought we had it.

He just enjoys people listening intently to his riffs.

7. Actually Maher was misinformed about the electors in states like Pennsylvania. The legislators

Last edited Fri Sep 25, 2020, 11:54 PM - Edit history (1)

of that state would have to pass legislation to do that, and in states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania if they were that brazen, the Democratic Governors of Wisconsin and Pa would veto that

Maher kept pushing to Sanders what would you do. Sanders said vote overwhelmingly so there is no question. Maher ad nausea kept pushing the question as though it was inevitable and trump wouldn't leave. Sanders gave him the anecdote to VOTE, but Maher wouldn’t let it go

18. JHC.. Maher needs to read THIS..

"Trump Can't Just Refuse To Leave Office"

Although written in June, a few months doesn't change anything. Not if, but when Joe Biden wins....

Trump Can’t Just Refuse to Leave Office
We have a lot of things to worry about in the next eight months. This isn’t one of them.
By Fred Kaplan
June 01, 20201:54 PM

So it’s the morning of Jan. 20, 2021. Trump doesn’t meet President-elect Joe Biden and his wife in the White House driveway, nor does he attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill. Instead, he proclaims, as he has many times by this point, that the election was a fraud (he has set the stage for this with his false claims about mail-in ballots), and at noon, instead of acceding to the transfer of power, Trump proclaims that the swearing in was FAKE NEWS and that he remains the president.

Here is what would happen next.
On the dot of noon, the nuclear codes, which currently allow Trump to order and authenticate a nuclear attack, expire. The officer who has been following him around everywhere with the “football”—which, contrary to popular belief, is not a button or a palm print but rather a book filled with various launch codes—leaves. If Trump and whatever lackeys stay with him prevent the officer from leaving, another officer, holding a backup football, would join Biden at the inauguration ceremony.
By the same token, the entire U.S. military establishment will pivot away from ex-President Trump and salute President Biden. The principle of civilian control is hammered into American officers from the time they’re cadets—and the 20th Amendment of the Constitution states, “The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January”—no ifs, ands, or buts.

He’s physically going to survive the Trump era but he’s a shadow of what he was. Trump broke him.

9. Maher is such a mixed bag! I seem him as entertainment maybe, dark in nature to just

F..king stirring things up. He can be very racist, he has guests like Steve Bannon and then jokes with him about things racism, his right wing hate groups he was trying to form in Europe...and on and on.

Maher is a self proclaimed libertarian that lives in and enjoys a democracy..just plain hypocritical!

Since then he has supported Democrats. Gave three million dollars to PACs to elect Democrats.

And it doesn’t change the horrible affects of his actions had.

Btw I didn’t accept his lame self serving apology.

30. So great: "How different it all could have been. All the Hillary equivocators from 2016,

the people who said she was racist, not really that different from Trump, the ones who voted third party, the ones who stayed home because, you know, 'the lesser of two evils.' Sorry, but you all have to eat it one more time. Because oh how I would love me some of that Hillary 'evil' right now. You know, the world where liberals would currently have a 6-3 majority on the court. The 'evil' where people wouldn't be facing having their health care taken away, or their right to vote, or where America wasn't sliding into autocracy."

The alternate universe where people don't fall for obvious propaganda.
