Bill Maher Sides With Trump?!

( – In a surprising turn of events that will ruffle Democratic feathers, Bill Maher expressed support for the Supreme Court’s anticipated decision to overturn Colorado’s move to exclude former President Donald Trump from the primary ballot.

During a panel discussion the host of “Real Time” argued that trying to get the former president off the election by legally shaky means is not the correct strategy to defeat him in the 2024 election.

However Maher highlighted the significant role of the lower courts in the upcoming election and expressed approval for a federal appeals court’s decision ruling that Trump is not immune from prosecution related to the 2020 election.

Additionally, he voiced concerns over the slow pace of the legal process that could potentially delay “the big trial” until after November. “So f— them,” he said about the courts.

Maher then shifted focus to the Supreme Court’s deliberation on Colorado’s controversial move to disqualify Trump from the primary ballot due to his alleged involvement in the events leading up to January 6th. Contrary to many liberals who support Colorado’s stance Maher sided with Trump.

He suggested that the Supreme Court is likely to rule in Trump’s favor regarding the application of the Insurrection Act to bar someone from running due to their actions on January 6th.

Despite not wanting Trump to be president Maher disagreed with the disqualification approach and questioned the clarity of labeling January 6th as an insurrection. He also noted that opinions on Trump’s responsibility vary widely across the country, with half of Americans believing in Trump’s innocence.

He stated:

“First of all, it’s a little murky whether that January 6 was an ‘insurrection.’ It certainly was a riot. It was a bunch of- a lot of those people- some of them were definitely there to stop that election. A lot of them were just like, ‘Oh good, Trump. I love him and ooh, the Capitol is open now.’”

Maher warned that disqualifying Trump from running or affecting his election chances by barring him in certain states could set a precedent for future elections and turn the move into a standard practice.
