‘Who Could Make This Show Dumber?’ Bill Maher Goes After Palin’s Return To Fox News

Recently, Bill Maher caused a stir when reports surfaced about him referring to Sarah Palin‘s youngest child Trig, who has Down Syndrome, as “retarded.” Palin immediately fired back. But on Monday night, Maher took to Twitter to take a swipe at Palin herself — specifically, her much-publicized return to Fox News.

Not sparing Fox & Friends either, Maher quipped about Palin dumbing down the show:

Palin had responded to Maher’s earlier comment via Twitter, criticizing him for “hatefully” mocking kids “in order to make yourself feel big.” She hoped one of them “flattens your lily white wimpy a#*.”

Meanwhile on Monday, when The View tackled the controversy, Barbara Walters felt Maher likely didn’t intend to be mean-spirited (though none of them entirely defended Maher).
