Maher Compares Trump to Murderous Nigerian Dictator, Admits Liberals 'Lionize' Anyone Who Appears to Be the 'Anti-Trump'


Left-wing comedian Bill Maher closed Friday's edition of Real Time by comparing President Trump to a murderous Nigerian dictator: "he is the worst leader the world has seen since Idi Amin stopped eating the voters." Maher's references touches upon rumors that the late Nigerian dictator Idi Amin was a cannibal. Maher spent the rest of his monologue going after Dr. Anthony Fauci, whom he seemed to view as Robert Mueller 2.0.  The HBO host went through a list of Fauci's missteps throughout the coronavirus and announced that "I think Dr. Fauci is honorable, smart, and sincere but I also thought that about Robert Mueller and I worry liberals are once again falling into the same trap of lionizing someone just because they're the anti-Trump." While Maher specifically mentioned Mueller, the liberal media has "lionized" plenty of other people who appeared to be the "anti-Trump," only to disappoint them; including porn lawyer Michael Avenatti.
