Maher: Democrats Need to Get Some Balls, Be More Outspoken on Islam

Bill Maher, after a week of receiving criticism from some liberals for his Milo Yiannopoulos interview, said tonight that Democrats need to get some balls, be much tougher, and bring in new blood.

Seth MacFarlane told Maher he fears that Democrats may decide to counter Trump by choosing a celebrity instead of trying to rein things in.

Maher said it’s time for new names in Democratic leadership. He wants someone “ballsy” running the party instead.

Asra Nomani brought up the issue of liberals not being realistic enough on Islam and not speaking out more. Maher agreed and said Muslim reformation is “not being helped by a lot of the liberals.”

He expressed that he wants more Muslims in high office in the United States so they can then speak out in defense of Western values.
