I don't understand why Bill Maher keeps inviting these conservative f*ckwits into his show because it doesn't matter what he says, or how effectively he slaps them down: He's only giving them credibility and raising their profile.

I also wish his staff did better prep work.

Like when Shapiro goes off on how "children" (re: school shooting survivors) aren't really capable of reasoned discourse and shouldn't be listened to by the adults.

Shapiro wrote his first book, "Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America's Youth," when he was 17 years old. At 17, he was also a nationally syndicated columnist.

Fish, barrel, etc.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
