US comedian Bill Maher has sounded a warning to the pundit class who are smugly assuming that Donald Trump would definitely lose the election, saying that he is scared of a Trump win.
Maher, host of HBO’s popular talk show ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’, held a Facebook Live special titled ‘Whiny Little B*tch’ Wednesday, to release all the material he has on Trump before the election, he said.
Tackling the s*xism, xenophobia and racism at the heart of the Trump campaign, Maher said Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for supporting such a man.
But he also warned against complacency from Democrats smugly assuming they have won, saying the sceptre of a possible Trump win scares the crap out of him.
“I always said this would be a tight race. I have never seen an election quite like this. On one side a hysterical woman, and on the other side Hillary Clinton,”Maher said.
“I’m **king scared about the election. I feel like I feel when an X-ray result is coming back.
“I’m scared because people are stupid, because Hillary Clinton is not exciting..and because Democrats don’t know how to beat Donald Trump”
Maher added that hopefully, Clinton wins and he realises that his hysteria was way overblown, like the Y2k scare that hit the world at the beginning of the new millennium.
“I hope when we look back on this, Trump is like Y2K. A whole bunch of nothing”
After three quarters of an hour making fun of everyone on the American political spectrum, Maher ended with a time honoured truism, paraphrasing the phrase made famous by Michell Obama.
“When they go low, we GET HIGH.”
