Bill Maher calls out Trump-backing evangelicals for what they are: ‘Shameless hypocrites’

Tom Boggioni is based in the quaint seaside community of Pacific Beach in less quaint San Diego. He writes about politics, media, culture, and other annoyances. Mostly he spends his days at the beach gazing at the horizon waiting for the end of the world, or the sun to go down. Whichever comes first.

 

“Trump has nothing in common with Jesus.” Maher explained. “Jesus healed the blind, Trump mocks the handicapped. Jesus turned the other cheek, Trump grabs your pussy. Jesus turned water into wine, Trump just whines. The Bible says, ‘Thou shalt not covet they neighbor’s wife.’ Trump says, ‘Fine, what about my daughter?’”

 

But that didn’t stop Christian evangelicals leaders from lining up behind Trump despite his hateful rhetoric and admission that he sexually assaults women.

 

The Real Time host noted that this year’s presidential election is the first in recent years where neither candidate has used their faith as a selling point, which Maher called progress.

 

With the election wrapping up, HBO host Bill Maher took the opportunity to take on two of his favorite topics Friday night: GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and organized religion.
