Bill Maher: The GOP’s Just Like Fake Psychic Con Artists Ripping People Off

maherBill Maher ended his show last night by comparing Republicans to con artist psychics making phony predictions to make gullible people believe them.

Maher brought up recent crackdowns in New York against psychics scamming people out of money, bringing up the question of whether it’s okay to rob stupid people. Maher said, “Send your answers to Glenn Beck.”

But then he invoked the GOP’s many, many predictions about dire consequences if President Obama was reelected, clarifying that “I’m not saying Republicans are like psychics because psychics are right sometimes.”

He ran down a list of Republican claims that the country would be worse if Obama did this or that thing, but it didn’t quite happen that way, and Maher commented, “For a party that’s so anti-gay, they sure pull a lot of stuff out of their ass.”
