Bill Maher Hits The Republicans For Wanting A Political Neophyte For President

Real Time's Bill Maher took a whack at the GOP for supporting a bunch of political know nothings as their front runners in the 2016 presidential primary.

Real Time's Bill Maher took a whack at the GOP for supporting a bunch of political know nothings as their front runners in the 2016 presidential primary during his New Rules segment this Friday.

MAHER: And finally, new rule, if neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson really believes that somebody with zero governing experience is qualified to be president, he must first let someone with zero medical training operate on his brain.

And given some of the shit that comes out of his mouth, I think someone already has!

If there's one thing Republican voters can agree on, it's that the less the head of our government knows about government, the better. John Kasich is one of the few adults in the field and he's trying to buck this trend with his catchy slogan, Kasich, I know how a bill becomes a law.

That's not what GOP voters want anymore. Experience... ewww. Knowing things? Republicans avoid that stuff like a gay son.

And that explains their two leading candidates, Captain Carnival Barker and Sleepy McCrazy Pants. Like many of you I've spent the last few months thinking, you can either want Trump to be leader of the free world, or I can take you seriously, but it can't be both.

And Ben Carson, who says that the Ayatollah Khomeini and Vladmir Putin went to college together, which no one can even find a source for, except perhaps... Ambien, he's now the front runner?

Of course he is, because 85 percent of Iowa Republicans say they find the total lack of government experience to be his biggest selling point.

But if their kids needed brain surgery, would they say, forget Ben Carson, he's a brain surgery insider?

Where else in life does anyone ever apply this thinking. When their toilet is broken, do they say, get me anybody but a plumber? The shit is about to back up in here. What we need is an outsider.

Maher went onto say that maybe time and this extremely long election season is our greatest ally against idiot candidates. As they say, time will tell.
