Bill Maher: John Roberts Is A 'Liar' Or Too 'Naive' To Be SCOTUS Chief Justice

Bill Maher tore into the Supreme Court's decision invalidating aggregate campaign contribution limits on an individual during an election cycle.

"They say the Constitution was created by geniuses so idiots could run it," the comedian and liberal political commentator said Friday on his HBO show "Real Time With Bill Maher." "I need to amend that. I think the idiots have found a way to break it. I do. I think the idiots have finally won over the geniuses."

He took particular aim at Chief Justice John Roberts for decreeing in the 5-4 controlling opinion that giving large sums of money to politicians doesn't give rise to quid pro quo corruption.

"Either he is a liar or he is too na´ve to hold any important job, including -- and especially this one," he said. "This is like a legal ruling written by the Little Mermaid. Are you crazy?"
