Bill Maher Cheers On A Recession and Even Piers Morgan Is Upset

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.

In regards to Pier’s statements, credit must be given where its due; the hysteria surrounding Trump (though sometimes warranted) has led to a cult-like movement that is all too common in mainstream politics, and it’s great to see someone on the left finally waking up to this insanity. For rich guys like De Niro and Maher who have a combined net worth of over $300 million to overlook a growing economy shows their true goal of attempting to virtue signal to the highest degree. When Piers Morgan is insinuating you’re a traitor, it might be time to take a hard look in the mirror.
