Maher: Trump Nomination Shows GOP Has ‘Gotten Over Their Obsession’ With Social ‘Wedge Issues’


HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher argued that the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate shows “the Republican Party has gotten over their obsession” with social “wedge issues” on Friday.

Maher said, “I think the Republican Party has gotten over their obsession with these web issues — wedge issues, I’m sorry. Because Donald Trump, they had their choice to pick Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, [Sen.] Ted Cruz (R-TX), all these people who prayed their way across the country, and they opted for the New Yorker with three wives, who doesn’t give a sh*t about any of this. He doesn’t care about gay marriage. He doesn’t care about where people go to the bathroom. I mean, he says, ‘Nobody reads the Bible more than me.’ No one actually believes [that].”

Later, after actor Bryan Cranston stated that it might be time for a third party that is “socially conscious, but yet fiscally responsible.” Columnist Ann Coulter declared, “That’s Trump.”
