Bill Maher is obviously as stunned as the rest of sane Americans are. What do we do now?
The Real Time host suggests we stay and fight! We are the RESISTANCE and giving in to the urges to pack up and abandon our own country would only delight the poorly educated and misinformed voters who supported the most dangerous candidate ever. Don't give them the satisfaction. Ever.
Maher gives many reasons we need to stay and fight. How can we leave America?
It's where we played Monopoly during summer vacations never imagining that going bankrupt in Atlantic City was a stepping stone to the White House. Plus all our stuff is here.
It's tempting to want to divide America down the middle right now. I've actually been in the bad roommate situation where you literally got white tape and made a line through the middle of the apartment. It's something they've tried on many many sitcoms over the years starting with I Love Lucy Lucy on one side, the Spanish-speaking immigrant on the other. She just wanted to make the living room great again.
Maybe Liberals and Conservatives need couples therapy; a safe space where Liberals can say to Conservatives 'your obsession with guns makes me uncomfortable,' and Conservatives can say to Liberals, 'we feel bullied when you demand that we make gay wedding cakes!'
But that's probably not going to happen. You can unfriend someone whose politics you don't like, but you can unfriend forty-seven percent of America. Roommates can move out. Patriots can't. America needs you more than ever. Right here. With me and the
rest of the RESISTANCE, until we can figure out how to really make America great again. And don't ever let them forget, we're still here.
Fight on folks. Fight on.
