Thursday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, HBO host Bill Maher warned that the Democrat presidential candidates could lose in 2020 if they obsess over far-left issues.
Asked about the Dem candidates’ “race to the left,” Maher said, “It is kind of a cancer on progressivism… You mentioned health care and immigration. Yes, those are issues that are easy to win. This is the Democrats’ race to lose…
“If you run on taking away people’s health care and taxing them too much and taking away all of their guns and transwomen-get-abortion rights. I think that came up in the first debate. I don’t think you are going to win this election. I think the only way the Democrat loses is to convince a lot of people that they are actually scarier or crazier than Trump, which is not easy to do, but I think they can.”
Considering that the Democrat candidate slate consists almost entirely of extremists calling for socialism, gun confiscation, reparations, and the like, Maher is correct that their radicalism will cost them the presidency.
