Bill Maher To Republicans: There's No Shame In Punting This November

Bill Maher explains to what's left of the "sane" wing of the Republican party why they should vote for Hillary Clinton this election cycle and focus on rebuilding their party instead.

Real Time host Bill Maher during his New Rules segment this Friday explains to what's left of the "sane" wing of the Republican party why they should vote for Hillary Clinton this election cycle and focus on rebuilding their party instead. If we wind up with Clinton and Trump in the general, I expect a lot of the so-called "GOP establishment" will do exactly that.

Bill Maher Explains To GOP Voters Why Hillary Clinton Is Their Only Hope:

The “Real Time with Bill Maher” host said on Friday night the GOP would lose the presidential elections under Donald Trump or Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), so he advised Republican supporters to do themselves a favor and switch sides.

“Help put Hillary Clinton in the Oval Office and you’ll have her right where you want her,” he said. “I know it sounds crazy, but the only way you can win this November is by losing.” [...]

Describing Cruz as “a man with all the appeal of Jared [Fogle] from Subway, minus the inspiring weight loss story” and Trump as the “zombie candidate,” Maher revealed there was actually a different option for disillusioned Republicans.

It would be perfect, given that Republicans didn’t actually want to — and probably couldn’t — govern due to the mess the party is currently in, he said. And it would mean they could probably scupper every bill that Clinton tries to pass.

“It’s like one of those houses where an old lady lived with 100 cats who peed everywhere,” Maher said of the GOP. “That is your party today — a filthy, pee-stained house full of dead cats.

“Do you really want to spend four years defending every single thing President Trump tweets in the middle of the night, defending every stupid thing he does, when he invades Poland or puts Hulk Hogan on the nickel or retweets our nuclear codes?”

Then take a punt and vote for Clinton, he said as he lightheartedly reminded Republicans that they “can’t impeach her” if they don’t elect her.
