Maher’s New Rule Was That We Should All Be Glad Trump’s the Last ’50s Guy’ to Run for POTUS
Bill Maher got a little nostalgic tonight on Real Time. He dedicated his new rule this evening to the reality that Donald Trump will probably be the last “Fifties Guy” to run for President, win or lose.
He then took a trip down Memory Lane, pointing out that Trump was born exactly nine months after WWII ended and that he never knew a childhood where Dwight Eisenhower wasn’t in the Oval Office, nor a childhood where his mother didn’t have food ready to go on the table.
Maher explained that by romanticizing this period, Trump and others like him whitewash history and hope to one day get back to an era where people like Elvis can capitalize on the work of people of color, co-opt their ideas, and become more successful.
He even played a clip of Trump saying that he isn’t in favor of wives working, just for good measure.
