Friday on HBO’s Real Time, host and comedian Bill Maher joked about leaving California because although the state “just loves to be up everybody’s ass all the time,” its incompetent handling of droughts and wildfires is dangerous.
“For a state that just loves to be up everybody’s ass all the time, water management might be a better place to direct that instinct,” Maher said. “When it comes to regulations, either go big or go home or I’m going to find a new home because my house is one gender reveal party away from burning down while I’m asleep.”
Maher, who has donated millions to the state’s dominant Democrat Party, took issue with the state’s almond growers for cultivating the crop while the state contends with perennial droughts. Almonds require more water per pound than most other fruits or vegetables. “Californians can live without nuts. Just ask [transgender celebrity] Caitlyn Jenner.”
“We are the most regulated state in the nation with more than 395,000 regulatory restrictions,” he said. “It is a constant nightmare of inspectors and permits and fees. In this state, if you get to your car ten seconds after the parking meter expires, it’s already gone and you’ll never see it again.”
Maybe it’s time to start directing your anger against the Democrats you support, Bill.
