Bill Maher: Democrats Should Drop ‘When They Go Low We Go High’ Philosophy

After a Republican candidate who bodyslammed a reporter was elected to Congress, Bill Maher said tonight it’s time for Democrats to discard that whole “when they go low, we go high” philosophy.

Maher––who dropped the n-word to make a joke tonight during an interview with Senator Ben Sasse––argued Democrats should start being as aggressive as their opponents and not care so much about how it might look.

He said Republicans wouldn’t “be so reserving of judgment” if Hillary Clinton was facing the kind of heat over Russia President Trump is, so they should change the slogan to “when they go low, we kick them in the nuts.”
