On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that he believes the women who have accused New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) of sexual harassment “completely. I don’t need to have it investigated.”
Maher said, “This is one where I do not need an investigation. I’ve always said on this show that it’s a case-by-case basis. Some people don’t like that. Because we went to a place in 2017, it was like always believe women. I said, no, women should always be taken seriously. And like, Al Franken? I’m sorry, but I believe Al, I don’t think he’s that guy.”
Maher added, “I believe these women completely. I don’t need to have it investigated. They are — I believe every word they say.”
He later added, “What I hate about the Cuomo thing, don’t lie. Don’t give me this bullshit about, I wasn’t making advances. Yes, you were.”
