It’s often hard to tell what’s real and what’s not these days. It’s believable that an elderly man at a DMV would write up an article on his desire for government-run healthcare during his extended wait on account of government inefficiency, yet it seems unbelievable that someone like Bill Maher would claim the U.S. should cheer on a recession for the sole purpose of impeaching Trump. Here is Maher’s full quote:
I feel like the bottom has to fall out (of the economy) at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it. I think one way you get rid of Trump is by crashing the economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.
If you didn’t catch that, the latter is indeed true while the former isn’t, but who would have thought that Piers Morgan of all people would be the voice of wisdom in this situation? He is after all the guy that has been critical of many aspects of liberty, especially things like gun rights and the American way of life in general.
In an article he wrote for DailyMail recently, he starts off by pointing out that as De Niro was proclaiming “F**k Trump” at the Tony Awards, the summit with Trump and Kim-Jong Un was occurring simultaneously in Singapore. Potentially de-nuclearizing North Korea permanently would be a drag on his “hate the president” rally, so it’s no surprise he overlooked that fact. De Niro, as he points out, “hijacked yet another awards show with his anti-Trump vitriol. . . And all the luvvies in the crowd had found a heroic mouthpiece for their own festering hatred of Trump.”
His attack on Bill Maher was even more devastating, saying:
You loathe Trump so much you actually want a crippling financial crisis to ravage your own country and devastate millions of the poorest and most vulnerable of your fellow Americans?
He even recognizes that “Unemployment’s fallen to an 18-year low of 3.8%, with Black and Hispanic unemployment hitting historic lows.” My favorite part is when he says this:
So why would Bill Maher, himself worth a recession-proof £100 million, be so keen to see the booming economy collapse? The answer, sadly, is that he hates Trump so much he can’t bear to acknowledge any of his successes and would rather he fail even if that means America fails too.
