Bill Maher, liberal wackjob host of HBO’s “Real Time,” raised some eyebrows during the Friday airing of his show when he complained that he feels it’s “unfair” that residents of Texas — and other conservative states — are able to receive federal funds after natural disasters such as Hurricane Harvey.
Maher’s tirade on why he feels it’s “unfair” that the federal government “bails” out places like Texas is wrong in so many ways…
“These places that got flooded, like Texas, okay, they have a low tax base,” Maher said. “So, the federal government bails them out. Their governors, their legislators they don’t believe in climate science.”
He continued, “It seems like the responsible folks in this country, the people who pay a little more taxes and the people who believe in climate change are bailing out the people who hate government, except when they need government when they’re in trouble.”
“That seems a little unfair,” he complained. “Suddenly, socialism is not such a bad idea when you’re standing in toxic floodwater.”
Survivors of Hurricane Harvey endured a deadly storm, catastrophic flooding, the loss of life, and the damage as a result of the storm was recently estimated to be as high as $180 billion dollars.
But luckily, no one important pays any mind to Maher’s nonsense.
Despite the loon’s comments, many citizens in Texas — and plenty of other states — have pitched in to lend hands to and raise the spirits of their fellow Americans.
Others who were unable to physically assist victims of Harvey donated large sums of money to relief efforts.
President Trump just signed a $15 billion relief package for Harvey survivors.
Other presidents — including former President Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, and George H. W. Bush — teamed up to launch a campaign, The One America Appeal.
