HBO Real Time host Bill Maher demonstrated this week why his show is one of the only current events programs worth watching anymore.
Mocking the so-small controversy regarding
stunt queen reporter Michelle Fields and Donald Trump‘s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Maher quoted Fields from a recent TV interview:
This woman said … “This has to be, aside from my father’s death, the worst experience I’ve gone through.” And I thought, what a charmed, lucky, clueless, white-girl life you have lived if that’s the worst thing that’s happened to you.
He went on to stay that Lewandowski, who is scheduled for a court appearance in May, should never have been charged with “assault.” (Lewandowski was actually charged with “simple battery.” Or, as people who have seen the video call it: bullshit.)
The issue about a reporter being pulled aside by the arm has never been a serious matter, even though cable news tried to make people think it was.
Maher has done the nation a favor by finally reducing it to a joke.
