Friday on HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher stated that President Biden’s approval ratings are low because homelessness and retail theft are so rampant that “It just doesn’t feel like the country’s right.”
Maher began by lamenting that we can’t seem to find a “middle ground between what a lot of these liberal cities are doing, which is…they say, it’s not a violent crime. Yeah, it’s not if you don’t try to stop it” — and 2024 GOP presidential candidate former President Trump talking about shooting shoplifters.
Maher added later, “And it’s also just psychologically demoralizing, these things, like if you’re in a store and you can’t shop freely. Biden’s always saying, why don’t people like me more? And then they cite numbers. Because it just doesn’t feel good when you see tents everywhere on the street. It just doesn’t feel like the country’s right. It just doesn’t feel good when I’ve got to get a sales associate to unlock the hair scrunchies.”
Why doesn’t Maher, a liberal who increasingly questions the ideological lunacy of his own Party, just take that final step and convert to conservatism already?
