HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher believes former President Donald Trump may be cruising to another victory in 2024 because of one thing the Democratic Party has embraced.
Namely, Maher says as long as Democrats continue pushing “woke” curriculum in public schools, they will continue to lose ground with Americans and also the presidential election next time around.
Democrats are flubbing a number of issues that hit close to home for the vast majority of Americans that could cost them the election, primarily over education, he told The Daily Wire emeritus Ben Shapiro in an interview for the later’s podcast.
He also agreed with Shapiro that, were Trump to decide to run in the next presidential election, he would “clear the field” of GOP candidates and wind up the nominee again.
“I could see that Trump could actually win that election, easily,” Maher said. “Especially if the Democrats keep doing the stuff they are doing to piss people off, like in schools, with all that kind of stuff.
“My theme has been that, yes, both parties have a lot to answer for. Again, I told you where my politics are in general, okay? I’m not coming over to this side. I do think that Republicans are more dangerous,” the HBO host claimed.
“But what pisses people off with Democrats is so much closer to home, it’s so much up close and personal,” he added.
Maher went on to recount Democrat efforts to impeach Trump over his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who is now embroiled in a fight to stave off a Russian invasion.
“I mean the Ukraine issue that he was impeached over,” Maher said. “Yes, I think it was an impeachable offense, absolutely. But to most people, it’s like, Ukraine? … It’s very far away, doesn’t really influence my life a lot?”
Conservative Brief added:
Democrats alleged that Trump engaged in a ‘quid pro quo’ with Zelenskyy during a July 25, 2019 phone call — withholding military assistance until he agreed to launch an investigation into the financial activities in his country involving Joe and Hunter Biden. But according to Zelenskyy at the time, he said he felt no pressure from Trump to do so.
A subsequent report by The Wall Street Journal quoted a source who said though Trump mentioned the potential Biden probe about eight times, he never threatened to withhold military aid or offer any other “quid pro quo.”
In any event, Maher went on to rip the Democratic left for pushing ‘woke’ curriculum to youngsters in public school.
“But when you have my kid coming home from school and saying, ‘Mommy, am I a racist?’ ‘You’re five. You just learned the word. What are you — ?’ That’s what I worry about with the Democrats,” the host asserted. “And in that scenario, Trump could win.”
