Bill Maher got some rather strong Twitter pushback tonight for a tweet he sent out comparing Hamas to a “crazy woman who’s trying to kill you” that you just need to “slap” lest she actually kill you.
Here’s the tweet in question.
Dealing w/ Hamas is like dealing w/ a crazy woman who's trying to kill u – u can only hold her wrists so long before you have to slap her

You can imagine how well that went over.

Bill Maher reminds the world he's a sexist pig and has terrible politics on the Middle East https://t.co/1yWbzlPucH

"Genocide is a lot like assaulting women in that I enjoy both" –@billmaher, literally

.@billmaher I manage to oppose Hamas without flippant remarks about "crazy women" who need to be "slapped."
