Bill Maher had a “New Rule” on Friday’s Real Time: Don’t let Trump get away with anything just because he claims to be a Republican. Trump has insulted veterans, used an insecure phone like the one Clinton was almost locked up for using, and hedged back on many of his promises, but he has gotten a free pass because he has the “magic R” for Republican next to his name.
“Because if you have one of those, you can get away with pretty much anything when it comes to selling out, cursing out or compromising your own country,” Maher said.
“I gotta say to all you flag-waving right-wingers who always say ‘I’m not just gonna stand here and let you run down America,’” said Maher. “You’re standing there and letting Trump run down America.” He then added, “Donald Trump would go to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers and say, ‘Maybe if he had done something he wouldn’t be so unknown.’ Republicans would be okay with that too.”
“Why do Republicans get away with this? Why do they have patriotic immunity?”
