Friday on HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher said of the women who have accused lethally incompetent New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment that he believes them “completely. I don’t need to have it investigated.”
“This is one where I do not need an investigation. I’ve always said on this show that it’s a case-by-case basis,” Maher stated. “Some people don’t like that. Because we went to a place in 2017, it was like, ‘always believe women.’ I said, no, women should always be taken seriously. And like, [former leftist Congressman] Al Franken? I’m sorry, but I believe Al, I don’t think he’s that guy.”
Maher added, “I believe these women [Cuomo’s accusers] completely. I don’t need to have it investigated. They are — I believe every word they say.”
He later added, “What I hate about the Cuomo thing, don’t lie. Don’t give me this bullshit about, I wasn’t making advances. Yes, you were.”
Maher is usually on the wrong side of every political issue, but even a broken clock gets the time right twice a day.
