Political comedian Bill Maher thinks Americans are too stupid to vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist,
even though he is the best candidate.
“Of all the candidates in the race, Sanders makes the most sense,” Maher said in a radio interview. “Of course that’s why the American public won’t vote for him. Bernie wants to scale back the Military Industrial Complex, end mass incarceration and introduce universal health care. But who wants that?”
Maher added Americans were terrified of the word socialism, even though we have many aspects of socialism, such as Medicare, the VA, social security and free K-12 education.
“Americans love all those things, because they don’t consider them to be socialism, even though they are,” Maher said.
Maher has frequently ranted about the lack of intelligence of the average American on his HBO show “Real Time.”
“You want an example of how stupid Americans are?” he said. “If you talk to the people who support Donald Trump, they’ll say, ‘Because he’s one of us.’ Oh yeah, Trump’s a billionaire, who flies around in a private jet and is married to a European model, but he understands working people.”
