“Real Time” host Bill Maher came clean and called out the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential election to a stunned Hollywood star Rob Reiner.
Maher said: “Is it okay to have a conspiracy to get rid of Trump? They were talking about Hunter Biden’s laptop, which was a story and now all the mainstream press has finally admitted it was a real story. It was a real laptop.
“Now look, let’s not pussyfoot around this; he was selling the influence of his father, Joe Biden. I mean, most political sons do, but let’s not pretend at least that was going on, so Hunter Biden’s laptop was buried by the press.
“Even the head of Twitter Jack Dorsey said that was a mistake. So Sam Harris says it was appropriate for Twitter, and the heads of Big Tech, and the heads of journalistic organizations to feel that they were in the presence of something that is a once-in-a-lifetime moral emergency, meaning Trump.
“So he’s saying it’s okay to have a conspiracy, to get rid of somebody as bad as Trump.
“It’s a little bit of a thorny question because once you go down this road- this is sort of where we are in this country, the other side is so evil, anything is justified in preventing them from taking office. Is it?”
Rob Reiner said:
“You know what’s not justified? Using armed violence to try to kill people in the Capitol. That’s not justified.”
“Answer this question!” Maher said.
“The question is- was it appropriate to bury the Hunter Biden…”
“You talking about the press doing that?” Reiner asked.
“He’s saying that’s what they did and that is what they did,” Maher said.
“They buried the Hunter Biden story before the election because they were, like, ‘We can’t risk having the election thrown to Trump. We’ll tell them after the election.’”
“And we know for a fact that that’s what they did?” Reiner asked.
“Of course” Maher said. “You don’t follow this?”
“I don’t know what they did,” Reiner said.
“I know because you only watch MSNBC,” Maher fired back.
