‘You Gonna Apologize To Me?’ Malcolm Nance, Alex Marlow Feud During Maher’s Overtime Segment
During Bill Maher‘s Overtime segment, things got very heated between terrorism expert Malcolm Nance and Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow.
On the subject of fake news that was geared towards Marlow, Nance chimed in and told him “I sorta have a bone to pick with you.”
“There was this article about a 35-year counterterrorism expert who claimed they wanted Trump Tower attacked that was written in Breitbart,” Nance began. “I got 31 death threats and that came from your website…you gonna apologize to me?”
Marlow responded that he respected Nance and his service to the country, but Nance shot back by saying, “Your followers threatened my family, my children, my wife.”
The Breitbart chief tried turning the tables. “Are you really suggesting that Breitbart doesn’t get death threats? That our lives aren’t put in danger?”
Nance again demanded an apology, to which Marlow told him to show him the story first.
“I will come to your office to see that retraction,” Nance responded.
The feud didn’t end there.
Marlow then said that Nance was liked by both sides of the aisle “until Trump became president and he became the hysterical person [he is].” The rest of the panel rejected the characterization.
“He’s the hysterical one?” Maher reacted.
Actor/Comedian Eddie Izzard defended Nance, saying that demanding an apology “isn’t being hysterical” but was simply being “angry” for receiving death threats.
Marlow doubled down on his assertion by accusing Nance of calling a key member of the Trump administration “Goebbels,” which is a reference to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
“That’s not true!” Nance retorted. “I called him Baby Goebbels,” which received a big laugh from the audience.
Political scientist Ian Bremmer jumped in by telling Marlow to “take away the heat” when someone else is spewing hatred and “calm the f–k down!”
