Monday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher lamented the wave of political correctness that has hit the modern Democratic Party.
Maher explained how he was critical of the Democratic Party when necessary, but cited political correctness as something damaging Democrats’ cause.
“They need going after,” he said. “They need some tough love, and I’m not going to stop. But yes, their stuff is raggedy, too. They have some things they have to answer for, and they don’t help themselves a lot. And I think a lot of this far left political correctness is a cancer or progressivism. When you talk to Trump supporters, they’re not blind to his myriad flaws, but one thing they always say he’s not politically correct. I don’t think you can overestimate how much people have been choking on political correctness and hate it. There were two studies about this recently. It was in The New York Times, front-page story. It was also in The Atlantic about a year ago. The vast majority of liberals in this country hate it. They think political correctness has gone way too far. No one likes to be living on eggshells.”
