10. Maher has been going downhill for quite a while. His show last night was very unsettling
Sat Jan 30, 2021, 01:42 PM
Jan 2021

with those two egotistical "scientists" spouting their baseless opinions about the virus leaking out of the Chinese lab as if their opinions were fact. During the entire time that Weinsstein and Heying were speaking, the one thing that kept running through my mind was that I was wondering if the two of them Trumpsters or not. Maybe they aren't, but we sure don't need that kind of shit right now.

Long ago Maher's shows would be comforting in the fact that we knew we had a solid ally in him, one with a big microphone. Lately his shows are not only raising our eyebrows, but they are boring as all hell. I wonder how long HBO will keep him because his ratings must be dropping drastically I would imagine.

This is why i stopped watching him PirateRo Jan 2021 #1
