HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher made a great prediction about the 2022 midterms in a Wednesday night interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
Specifically, Maher said he believes the Democrats will be “hacked” in the midterms, noting President Biden, “He’s not exactly stuck in the landing.”
Cuomo asked, “When we talk again, eight months from today? Hopefully we’ll talk a lot before that. Eight months from today, do you think things are better or worse? ”
“Well, they wouldn’t be better for Biden and the Democrats,” Maher said. “And I think that’s happening – eight months to the midterms.
“I think they’re going to have a hard time getting in – I mean, that usually happens in midterm elections. But, I mean, Joe – look, I’m so glad he’s there. But he didn’t exactly latch on to the landing, about a lot of the problems he was dealing with,” Maher said.
He then went on to discuss how he thought Republicans viewed Democrats.
“They hate you,” he began. “Because they really hate you.”
I mean, look at the election we just did in Virginia. I mean, the Democrats lost 80% of some of those rural counties. We don’t do 80%, or we never did in America,” continued the HBO host.
“A landslide fight is one guy who got 58 percent of the vote. That’s what makes us great. And you’ve seen in other countries, “Oh, Castro got 99% of the vote,” we’ll laugh,” the comedian continued.
“Well, I have no doubt that Republicans got 80 percent of the vote, in some of those counties. I think out of 45 of them, they got over 70% of the vote,” he added.
“That is out of policy. And until we figure that out – until you figure out why they hate us so, and obviously, the other way around, when people hate you, you tend to hate them, we’ll never fix any of the problems. in this country,” he said.
Maher continued to recall encounters he had met in the past.
“I spoke to a guy, in the Midwest once, anywhere. And he was talking to me about how he came out of a store, and he was trying to get his car out of the shipment, and the car next to him had a bumper sticker on it. Hillary,” he told Cuomo.
“And the child – it was a 4-year-old or 5-year-old, screaming at the mother,” he added. “And the mother is apologizing to the child.
“And here is the car with the Hillary bumper sticker. And he said to me, ‘I can’t let people like that take over this country,'” Maher said.
“You see, it’s not about policy,” he concluded. “It’s back that. He sees people who have no common sense…”
He then mentions why he believes conservatives have little or no trust in the major media.
“I mean, something like Hunter Biden. I mean, if Don, Jr had done what Hunter Biden did, it would have been going on nightly, all night, on MSNBC,” he said, referring to the scandals allegedly linked to the president’s son.
