Bill Maher has some advice for Democrats: Go low.
“What did Michelle ObamaMichelle ObamaDems, GOP bicker via official Twitter accounts Bill Maher to Dems: 'When they go low, you go lower' Lily Collins shares letter from Michelle Obama MORE say?” the “Real Time” host asked, referring to the now-famous “When they go low, we go high” remark the former first lady made at last year’s Democratic National Convention.
“Yeah, f--- that,” Maher says with a chuckle in an interview from ATTN: and HBO that was released Wednesday. “When they go low, you go lower.”
Democrats, says the comedian, “need some bastards” in their party. “Some mean, Lyndon Johnson-y, you know, ‘I’m gonna out-f--- you on f---ing us,’ types,” Maher tells ATTN: Editor-in-Chief Matthew Segal.
If he had to give Trump a letter grade, Maher says he’d “of course” give “an ‘F,’ because like even the things we thought might be good about Trump — like he’s not beholden to any ideology — yeah, but he turned out to just be a regular, right-wing down-the-line asshole.
“We cut your healthcare, corporations get blowjobs, whatever they want, right? You know, I don’t see anything that’s the maverick Trump.”
When asked how Trump “gets away with” breaking campaign promises to his voters, Maher replies, “Well, it’s early, that’s the hope.
“At some point, when the job doesn’t come back and they lose their healthcare — he ran as the bull in the china shop,” says Maher, “and they’re gonna find out that the china is them.”
