  1. The right-wing conservatives have always hated Dems, liberals, and college-educated urbanites. This has been going on for 40 years. Blaming this hatred on Dems who are fighting for the equality of minority communities is a lame excuse.

  2. The last few episodes and interviews with Maher are case in point on how bad left leaning publications have become – I see one leading article on this set of discussion points with (in a Google Search of his name), and tons of content about his fat shaming segment…which was really meant to point out that American's could really stand to lose a few. But hey, let's focus on free everything for everyone and not really worry about VERY REAL consequences. Is it any wonder the left is losing their base.

  3. Were gonna consult with a “life long republican” on how the democrat can win. Excellent formula, we definitely won last time by moving to the right!

  4. The media press is the enemy of the people if there spreading fake news. Reporting on biased out of context reportings Un proven he say she say proof is not proof. So Trump is right on some of his statement. Plus you wont have to worry about Trump.not leaving cause he will win. Theres no doubt about that. The left has gone mad to the point there losing alot of centrist democrats like my self to go right. Because of common sense policies and beliefs that there against. And focusing on race war politics that in the end doesnt help the pockets and lively hoods of every day Americans. Identity politics social justice warrior BS is losing the Democratic voters to go right and walk away from the Democratic party

  5. Wait, wasn’t bill all for Bernie last election? Oh yeah, he was. Maybe it’s time to smoke a little less weed, Bill. Because you contradict yourself more that someone with severe dementia

  6. Marianne Williamson is "kooky" because she is way ahead go her time. To a nation that cannot even think coherently mind power sounds kooky.

  7. Working Class Democrats here in PA, WV, OH, MI and WI PUT TRUMP INTO OFFICE and will do so again if the Liberal ELITE of New York and Hollywood control our party. We have NOTHING in COMMON with these Elitists. We do NOT Want Open Borders or 9th Month Abortions. We will elect Trump again if nothing changes. this I promise you. AOC, Illhan Omar and Talib do not speak for Working Democrats!!!!!!!!

  8. Yes, people in Michigan and Wisconsin struggling to pay the bills will for sure care about pot on the ballot-what a load of crap. That’s exactly why democrats will lose in 2020, that kind of idiotic thinking.

  9. Democratic party has gone completely insane, healthcare for noncitizens, taxpayer funded abortions in Africa… no thanks. I'll take Trump any day of the week and twice on Sunday vs any of the current socialist fascists.

  10. The loyal Trump supporters will be a lot more civil if Trump loses in 2020 than the Democrats were when crooked Hillary lost. Maher still hasn't accepted Trumps legitimate victory. Pretty pathetic.

  11. Trump won’t leave if he loses in 2020? Please. It was these clowns’ candidate who spent the last two years claiming she didn’t really lose in 2016.

  12. Can we separate people on campus from candidates? When you vote for a president you’re not voting for a 19 year old college student.

    Also if Bill is criticized by the left then isn’t that proof that the left isn’t too tribal to critique itself?

  13. to those who don't watch bill's show, he is very liberal and progressive more than he sounds like he is, he's just saying he's willing to make sacrifices on policies to win the election

  14. It is amazing that concepts that are regarded in Europe as conservative and well established are called "far left" in the US. Who would think that countries like Germany, France, UK, Norway, Sweden, Denmark are far left for "the typical" US citizen.

  15. Decries conspiracy theorists but believes Trump is the FSB’s Man in DC…decries third world corruption but the Russia dossier DEFINITELY was legit and rightly should’ve overturned the 2016 election.

  16. Sorry Bill. You have SOME common sense based ideals, but you've simply picked the wrong side for so many years now, that there's no turning back. But don't feel bad. Many people were fooled by the great myth of JFK being some sort of moral deity and thought, by voting Democrat, they were on the side of morality and virtue. It can be difficult when reality is exposed. Your party is both insanely ignorant and willing to fight disgustingly dirty. A bad combination. Maybe you can somehow initiate a revamping of the party, geared towards a 2028 victory. That way, you can have some light at the end of the tunnel.

  17. Important Note: Trump will be 78 in 2024. He has no intention of staying in office, if he loses, or if his term ends. That's completely ignorant, and shows that you don't get him at all. However, a very likely scenario – DJT wins in 2020, and Ivanka or even Don Jr. wins in 2024. Wouldn't that be something…? 🙂

  18. Bernie Sanders is unapologetic and probably the most honest and consistent person that has run for president in decades and he is bringing the party kicking and screaming to the left, what are these guys talking about, they want strength then be honest and bring up Bernie, no one is stronger on his/her principles

  19. Political correctness, SJW, these are not issues. They are talking points from the right. The actual examples don't hold water, they are small scale individual incidents with very few people involved that are blown up by the press and twitter. Bill has been one of the ones trying to make it an issue for years. What really scares Bill and the other conservative Dems is paying higher taxes.

  20. "…we simply cannot expect to bring down the costs of health care in the United States without taking on the for-profit insurance and pharmaceutical corporations, which are raking in billions of dollars at the cost of American lives. Incremental steps such as   a public option might sound appealing but would still leave more than 10 million people  without coverage while keeping in place a costly private-insurance middleman that eats up 25 to 30 percent in administrative waste and profits.  If we want to achieve true universal health care while containing costs, Medicare-for-all is the only answer."  Pramila Jayapal

  21. Here’s the math on Medicare for All.  It will save Americans money. Economic Analyses of Medicare for All by Robert Pollin, https://www.peri.umass.edu/publication/item/1127-economic-analysis-of-medicare-for-all

  22. This is how you know trump will win. This is just like Romney in 2012 but in reverse. Liberals are gloomy and cynical, because they know their party is going the wrong way.

  23. How do healthcare prices and use in the U.S. compare to other countries? By Rabah Kamal and Cynthia Cox, Kaiser Family Foundation.  Retrieved from https://www.healthsystemtracker.org/chart-collection/how-do-healthcare-prices-and-use-in-the-u-s-compare-to-other-countries/#item-start

  24. Beware PragerU – it's a right-wing funded effort to indoctrinate viewers. Read Mother Jones article on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwWKVdHSRqs&lc=UgyRHE-I3l3WRVH6-GZ4AaABAg.8znzNVZBSEe8zya3_v52vE

  25. How about actually defending the constitution? So sick of these 2 awful parties who argue over who can spend more and what people can or cannot do without government permission. Large government will never benefit the people. Learn from history.

  26. Two Oldheads who know one cares about. Still pushing centrist positions acting like 2016 loss and the progressive push in 2018 didn't. Are they really pushing this New Way Bill Clinton old matra. They will bring us the next John Kerry and we will loose again. Bill Maher actually said Amy Klobuchar will be the person to win because she's a centrist woman. No one cares about identity politics if we don't like or motivated by them or their policy. They are so sad.

  27. What's wrong America. Get behind Gabbard. She is the only strong leader Maher is talking about. She would annihilate Trump and save your country trillions of dollars in not being in idiotic wars. Then you could actually have universal healthcare with an option for private and actually bring your country back from the precipice of a crumbling empire.

  28. Maher is right, the DNC should stick to its aim of kicking Trump out and be pragmatic rather than give in to the short-lived hubris and constant woke-off. They should realise that to win they need to communicate and convince the middle of the road voter as well as the disgruntled and skeptic republican voter. American values tend to be founded on capitalism and libertarianism, therefore they should be appealing to those values by borrowing from democratic socialist fundamentals and adopting them to the U.S. context and thereby not scare away staunch traditionalist flag-bearing American voters. They need to demonstrate why they are better than Trump without the need to even mention Trump. The ones that may fit this description so far (although not always in the most ideal manner) are Buttigieg, Sanders and Yang.

  29. if trump is crazy then the liberals are crazier
    Trump should be assigned as a king of the United states and the crown prince should be Donald Trump Jr .
    MAGA .

  30. Have news for you Bill……there is no fatigue with Trump……he said we would get tired of winning but I have to tell you I still love it since I'm used to winning! Trump 2020! MAGA!

  31. These New Democrats represent a radical departure from Liberalism. These are vicious Leftists, driven my emotional rhetoric, and if elected, will cause irreversible damage to our sovereignty and socioeconomics.

  32. Elect Andrew Yang, and support ranked choice voting to break the establishment 2 party power structure. Also, democracy dollars to make government represent the people instead of corporations.

  33. Yeah especially with what the DNC did to Tulsi. I don't like Trump at all but I don't like any of these candidates other than Yang and Tulsi so I likely won't even vote.

  34. I’m not sure what he’s basing this on? Maybe if he lives in New York or California he’s surrounded by liberals? Or maybe he thinks that’s what most people think because the television is constantly attacking the president but I think he and the rest of the television personality world are living in an alternate reality and are in for a rude awakening!

  35. Not just weak and fragile Bill, but NUTS.
    Who wants to be associated with the nuts on the left?
    My twin 17 year old sons will be voting for the next President.
    Why on earth would they vote for a Democrat?

  36. PC was a big factor in Trump winning, Trump is seen as a alpha male, Trump dont apologize for America, Obama did a world wide sorry tour. Now far left wants censorship and are turning into authoritarians,

  37. The right are the only ones that have conspiracy theories? (CoughRussiancollusioncough). I'd like to ask both of them which political party runs California.

  38. "Democrats' shift to the far-left" BWUAHAHAHAHA! Democrats have pandered to the right for 30 years, and the right has gone full-blown authoritarian. What a stupid way for Scarborough to frame the political discourse.

  39. Terrible interview. A series of painful contradictions (like "Dems need to stop listening to Twitter" then 5 minutes later "PC culture on Twitter is driving voters to Trump") that did nothing but legitimize the delusions of the right-wing and played right into their hands.

  40. Trump voters are conspiracy theorists? Bill, you're on MSNBC, where Rachel Maddow has been sounding worse than Alex Jones for years now…

  41. The Democrats have no choice, but to vote for Trump, because their jobs depend on it.

    Bobby Kennedy was more CONSERVATIVE than today's dems. He would never condone abortion for example. He would not be welcomed in today's far left Democrat Party.

  42. Democrats are out of touch with the American people. They are a sad group! Watch these debates if you can, they are just a joke.

  43. As far as I see it it's irrelevant who gets in to the White House, and which party has 'power'. Corporations and the MIC simply dominate whoever gets in either way.

  44. Funny, the thing joe is saying he liked about Bobby Kennedy is literally the quality that Bernie Sanders has, how he will say the same thing to a group of union workers as he will to a group of Harvard students, then going on to say no-one on the left has that..
