Bill Maher isn’t normally that passionate about the Super Bowl, but tonight he said he really wants the Patriots to lose because of President Trump.
In the past few days, Tom Brady has gotten some attention for his positive feelings towards Trump. (Our own Alex Griswold has more on the outrage here.)
Maher tonight said he truly cares about the Super Bowl results for one big reason:
“The Falcons are playing a team where the owner, the coach, and the star quarterback all love and support Donald Trump, so I’d really like for them to lose by a score of a million fucking thousand to none.”
The larger point here, he said, was about how Trump has managed to make everything political these days.
But he also found some time to tell Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, “Fuck you!”
