 Comedian and HBO host Bill Maher predicted a “very likely” victory for former President Donald Trump, saying that Democrats were shooting themselves in the foot when they persisted in writing off Trump supporters: “They are aggressively anti-common sense.”

Maher, speaking to English journalist Tina Brown at the Aspen Ideas Festival, said the Left was eventually going to have to “own” its role in the increasingly tribal nature of partisan politics in the United States.


“Part of it the Left has to own. They are aggressively anti-common sense. The Democrats keep running on this one idea, saying to the American people, ‘You can’t possibly think you can do worse than Donald Trump.’ And they keep saying, ‘Yes, we can. Yes, we can,'” Maher said.

He went on to bring up some of his friends who had younger, far-Left leaning kids — and he said that the kids accused their parents of “old thinking” and not really understanding their political views.

“Tear down statues of Lincoln? Maybe give communism another shot? Get rid of the border patrol? Get rid of capitalism? White supremacy has never been worse? Gender is always just a social construct? It’s okay to have penises in the women’s swimming pool, in women’s prisons?’ No, it’s not that I’m old; it’s that your ideas are stupid,” Maher said in response.


Maher then pointed out that if the Left insisted on leaning in to all things woke and refusing to even talk to Republicans who opposed Trump, they would be helping to push President Joe Biden to a reelection loss.

“That’s as good as it gets. If you can’t talk to those people, you’re just abandoning the country to half the people who are even worse, who are going to vote for Trump this next time and they are — and he very likely will win and then what are we going to do?” he said. “I think we should keep the dialogue open.”
