Four clips from days after the 2016 presidential election:

> Bill Maher Friday night on his HBO show, Real Time:

“They’re going to get rid of ObamaCare. Probably get rid of Roe vs. Wade. Enjoy your victory, Trump voters. Because when you’re dying because you don’t have health insurance to treat the infection you got for a back alley abortion you had to get because of fetal lead poisoning, you can say to yourself, at least I didn’t vote for someone with a private e-mail server.”

> Musician John Legend later on Maher’s show:

“We hear him questioning the citizenship of the first black president, then we hear him calling Mexicans rapists and murderers that are coming into the country. Then he’s saying he wants to ban Muslims from the country. We hear all that and we can’t get past that. I guess half of the country could get past that and vote for him because of his ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan or his promise to bring jobs that he’s not going to bring back. But we can’t get past him saying those things and we’ll never get past that and the fact that so many Americans voted for that guy who’s selling them a load of bullshit and racism, we’ll never get past that.”

> New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, also on Real Time:

“This is a moral 9/11. Only 9/11 was done to us from the outside and we did this to ourselves.”

> Joy Reid, host of MSNBC’s AM Joy, on Saturday morning, November 12, fretting that Germany, once the center of Nazism, is a better nation than the U.S. which is now beset by neo-Nazism:

“How awkward is it that the country that dealt with Nazism is now the country that we’re all looking to with hope that has a woman president, free college, and is being looked at as the leader of the free world while we have neo-Nazism a la about to get a seat in the White House. My head hurts -- what about yours?”
