Bill Maher wants economy to crash to ‘get rid of Trump,’ gets dropkicked by James Woods

It seems liberals hate Donald Trump so much they’re ready to see the entire country destroyed.  On Friday’s edition of HBO’ “Real Time,” host Bill Maher said he wants to see the economy destroyed to get rid of Donald Trump.

Worse yet, he doesn’t care if people are hurt in the process.  All that matters is getting rid of Trump.

“Can I ask about the economy because this economy is going pretty well? I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point. And by the way, I’m hoping for it. Because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So, please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy,” he said.

Real Clear Politics added:

Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?

“Trump is doing everything you can possibly do to screw up the economy,” guest John Heilemann declared. “It’s like everything is going great. This is the great thing — you watch Trump’s rhetoric. He says this is the lowest unemployment ever, African-Americans are doing great, we’re all doing fantastic, best ever.”

“But also, ‘It’s a disaster, we have to change everything. America is getting robbed blind by the foreigners.’ It’s like what the fuck are you talking about? Are we having a good economy or a bad economy? If we have a good economy, why not just say let it ride. If we have a bad economy, we’ll have another conversation, but he’s making no sense with his refrain,”

Actor James Woods translated Maher’s statement perfectly:

Indeed, this does seem to be the mantra of the Democrat Party these days.

One person came up with a better idea.



People like Maher, by the way, happen to be liberal Democrats.  And yes, they wish bad things for Americans just to hurt Trump.  Which is why they must be soundly defeated across the country.
