Bill Maher warned liberals tonight that for the sake of not risking a Donald Trump presidency, they need to temporarily just take a backseat and not stir up the culture wars.
As he pointed out, conservatives saw success when they exploited gay marriage as a culture war issue and won in 2004.
Maher even said that he’s willing to sacrifice his marijuana advocacy in the name of keeping the entire focus of the year on Trump, and he pointed to new culture war issues the right is trying to stir up about bathrooms.
“There’s no room,” he said, “for boutique issues in an armageddon election.”
Maher said they shouldn’t “die on this hill” of transgender culture wars, telling the rest of America to leave it to Hollywood.
