Bill Maher gently chided his friend Roseanne Barr for supporting a hateful bigot and kleptocrat like Donald Trump. “You’re not Archie Bunker… you’re Bernie Sanders!” Maher intoned.

Maher's best arguments against supporting such a hateful, divisive figure used parts of her new ABC show which feature the Connor's struggling to pay for their prescription drugs. Trump makes that much harder, not easier.
