Bill Maher has called out the media for promoting the Democrats’ anti-Trump narratives by making a simple observation about Russia’s Ukraine invasion.
The “Real Time” host highlighted the Left’s claims that President Donald Trump was supportive of Putin.
He then questioned why Russia didn’t invade Ukraine when Trump was in office if Putin thought Trump was supportive of him.
“If Putin thought Trump was really that supportive of him, why didn’t he invade when Trump was in office?” Maher asked.
“It’s at least worth asking that question if you’re not locked into one intransigent thought.
“Watching the reactions to war in Ukraine these past few weeks, it’s become obvious that America in this age suffers acutely from a particular disease of the mind, which is: everything proves what we already believed, and everything goes back to the thing we already hate.
“So, naturally, Republicans blamed Ukraine on Biden being the worst president ever, and Democrats blamed it on Trump’s being the worst president ever, which he was, there is that.”
Maher also took a few swipes at Democrat President Joe Biden over rising gas prices.
“Now that things are opening up, I was out with a bunch of people there, they said, let’s go someplace expensive,” he said.
“So I took them to a Chevron station.
“That’s the thing, we can finally leave the house and we can’t afford to drive anywhere.
“No, I was putting the nozzle in my car the other day, felt like I was taking it up the ass. I mean, it was.
“There’s, there is a, there is a gas station in Mendocino County here in California, charging $8.45 for a gallon of gasoline.
“And for that money, they should check your oil and your prostate. That’s…
“And of course, part of it is because we cut off the oil from Russia, which we had to do because of that terrible war in Ukraine.
“Well, as people say, we are all Ukrainians now.
“And by that, I mean, we’re also armed to the teeth and our English ain’t too good. But but…
“Americans, when they go all-in on something like now, everything Russian is bad, everything.
“I mean, we are boycotting everything, Russian vodka, pour that shit down the drain.
“Wouldn’t it be better if we used it up? I don’t know. The crew. Yeah.
“You know, Russian dressing. Can’t have that.
“Don’t even think about playing that game where you take a revolver and put one bullet in it.
“And no, that’s. It’s. Don’t call it that.
“If you’re going to do it, it’s called a night out with Nicolas Cage.
“These are scary times, because, you know, the more we put Putin in the corner, God knows what he’ll do.
“I mean, what freaks me out is every time I see a picture of Vladimir Putin, he’s sitting by himself at the end of a ridiculously long table, all by himself.
“He’s like a cross between Ivan the Terrible and Howie Mandel.
“We don’t want to start World War 3, right?
“I mean, we’re caught in the middle here.
“We’re trying to help Ukraine, but do it, you know, from the sidelines, we’re like the gay best friend in a romantic comedy.
“That’s America,” he said.
Even war in Ukraine has just become another chance to graft our agenda onto someone else’s pain. Don’t make World War 3 all about you. pic.twitter.com/dHlJ5vjKZ8

“I did not understand why my friend Paddy…this morning was my friend and I could play with him, and this afternoon a man came and told me I couldn’t because he’s a Catholic… That’s been messing with my mind for 50 years.”
