On Friday evening, Real time Host Bill Maher opened his show mocking presidential loser Donald Trump, who continues – against all logic or reason – to try to convince the American public that he did not lose the recent election to Joe Biden. , despite the fact that Biden won 306 electoral votes against Trump’s 232, and also received well over 5 million additional votes in the popular tally.
“This guy reminds me: remember the movie The sixth sense? Do you remember that movie? The main character doesn’t know he’s dead? Maher joked about Trump.
The comic later welcomed Jenna Ellis as its first guest. Ellis is the senior legal adviser to the Trump campaign, whose recent job has been to defend her boss’s baseless claims that the election was fraudulent. In a tweet who was taunted, she went so far as to say, “If Joe Biden is truly convinced that he won legally and legitimately, why is he so afraid to prove it?”
Even though Maher cautioned Ellis against using pre-defined talking points, she nonetheless opened with one, “What should concern all Americans is that every legal vote should be counted fairly and accurately. “
“Right away you used a talking point. “Legal vote”. No one disputes the idea that we don’t want to count ‘legal votes’, ”Maher retorted.
After Ellis repeated the far-fetched claim that Trump’s main motive for questioning election results was to ensure that we can have “a free and fair election in this country,” Maher was furious. “But we make know that, ”he said. “Your trials make people laugh outside of court. I mean, I’m sorry, I don’t want to make this a controversial interview. I’m just trying to present the truth. what keep on going in the court.”
Indeed, the Trump campaign has so far gone 0 to 6 in (frivolous) lawsuits challenging the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Even the Department of Homeland Security said there was “no evidence” of voter fraud in the election, and that it was “the safest election in history.”
When Maher asked Ellis, “Where did you triumph?” she repeatedly asserted that they had made progress “in Pennsylvania”.
Then Maher clicked. “No, you didn’t,” he replied, later adding, “Stop. Fair Stop. “
Increasingly animated, Maher quoted a Philadelphia judge who questioned a Trump campaign lawyer about his allegation that their observers were not allowed to enter the counting room. When the Trump campaign lawyer said there were a “non-zero” number of Trump team observers in the room. were Trump watchers in the room), the judge replied, “What’s the matter ?!”
“Aren’t you a little ashamed of the way you denigrate the people who work so hard in the most difficult election in memory?” Maher asked Ellis. “They worked so hard to make sure everything was going well.
Reader, she was not. Not even a little.
