The same Bill Maher who bristles against political correctness and hurls obscene vitriol at every opportunity finally found someone who he believes crossed a line — that being Major Garrett of CBS News who dared ask President Obama a tough question during yesterday’s press conference on the Iran deal.
Maher not only called Garrett an “asshole,” the aging HBO comedian compared Garrett’s question to hurling the word “nigger.”
#MajorGarrett is a huge asshole. If U wanna “strike a nerve” with POTUS, why not just scream the N word? That shld get his attention.

The desperation from the Left whenever Obama faces anything that isn’t already scripted is unlike anything I have ever seen in three decades of watching politics.
And Maher wasn’t alone. Within minutes of the end of Obama’s news conference, the left-wing cable news network CNN launched a mini-hate campaign against Garrett.
