“If we need them to save ourselves from Donald Trump, can and will they?” Bill Maher bluntly asked John O. Brennan – with reference to US intelligence – after the ex-CIA chief confessed that Trump is “without question” what worries him most. No, said Brennan. Members of the intelligence community are non-partisan. “And as disgusting and disgusting and horrific as Donald Trump’s presidency is, these people will not violate their oath of office to this country and the Constitution or get involved in politics,” Brennen told HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher Friday host, as he completed a week of press appearances for his new book Undaunted: My Fight Against America’s Enemies at Home and Abroad.
“I agree that Donald Trump is a real deviation and a danger to our country, but I’m not looking to the FBI and the CIA to try to oust him,” Brennan said.
November 3rd was almost upon us when the show continued to comfortably return to its full studio rhythm. Maher had to stop filming in his garden last month.
He greeted panelists, Daily Beast columnist Keli Goff, and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens, and said, “There are only four weeks left before the poll is stolen. I’m very excited. “
He found a new analogy to the Trump presidency, think of Disney around 1976. The film Gus with Ed Asner and Don Knotts. A high school soccer team assigns a mule (gus) to scoring winning field goals. The other teams protest. The Gus people say, according to Maher (probably paraphrased): “What a shame, idiot. The rulebook doesn’t specifically state that players must be human. Everyone just accepted that. So fuck you We will do it. ‘That is Trump’s philosophy in everything. “If you don’t specifically state that I can’t do something, I’ll do it.”
Maher also had a (unilateral) heart to heart with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) About the state. “I live in California so I’m going to grumble a bit,” Maher said. “I love California … but I feel like I was in Italy in the 1970s or something. Super high taxes, potholes in the road … businesses go by in droves, ”he said, noting Joe Rogan and Ben Shapiro – gone – and Elon Musk – talking about leaving.
“I have solar panels on my roof and it’s been three years and they still aren’t on … I can’t tell you how many inspections there are. We jumped through every hoop. It’s just corruption. “
