On Friday's Real Time show, liberal HBO host and comedian Bill Maher closed the show with a commentary hitting Democratic presidential candidates for pandering to pet issues of the far left, thus making themselves look too "crazy" and "weird" to beat President Donald Trump.

He went through a list of bizarre campaign promises made by a number of Democratic candidates, including Bernie Sanders pushing voting rights for convicted murderers, Elizabeth Warren supporting taxpayer-funded sex changes for prison inmates, and Julian Castro supporting abortion rights for "transgender women" who would not be able to give birth anyway "unless they're in prison and Elizabeth Warren buys them a uterus."

After playing a clip of President Trump at a rally declaring that even voters who "hate" him will have no other choice but to vote for him over the Democratic nominee, Maher began going after Democrats for some of their campaign promises:

The question Democrats must ask themselves is: What would make a voter say, "Trump's right. I don't like him, but I have no choice"? Well, let's go down the list. Bernie Sanders says we should let the Boston Marathon bomber vote. Why? Is there a great clamoring for giving deranged serial killers more of a voice in civil society? Is Hannibal Lector thinking, "I love Trump for his narcissistic personality disorder, but Sanders really gets voters like me"?

The liberal comedian then added: "Now, I'm sure you can make an argument for this, but we're trying to win an election here, and this just feeds into what Trump is selling."

Then came several clips of President Trump lambasting Democrats: "Democrats are now the party of crazy politicians. … crazy Democrats … They're crazy."

Maher then added:

Hey, Democrats, don't make him believable on that, and you win. Elizabeth Warren has not come out in favor of imprisoned serial killers voting, but she does want taxpayers to cover their sex change operations in prison, which brings up the question: If you tried, could you come up with a policy with more third-rail buzz words in it? Let's see: "taxpayer-funded," "sex change" for "prisoners." No, I don't think you could.

He then continued:

And, again, where are the votes in this? You know how many transgender people there are in federal prison in America -- 473, and they can't vote. So we're taking this position because it makes a great campaign slogan? Commit a crime and get a free dick. Commit a crime, and your new vagina is free.

A bit later, he slammed Beto O'Rourke for promising to go after churches if elected:

Beto O'Rourke wants to tax churches -- so do I, but I'm not running for President, Beto wants to take away the tax-exempt status of any church that opposes gay marriage -- a position I doubt goes down well with black church goers. And try winning as a Democrat without them.

Maher then hit Julian Castro and tied in Elizabeth Warren as he argued that Democrats are having difficulty being "less crazy than Donald Trump." Maher:

Why in the first debate did Julian Castro feel the need to take a brave stand in favor of trans female abortion rights? Trans females can't even get pregnant. They don't even have a uterus unless they're in prison and Elizabeth Warren buys them one. This should be easy -- just be less crazy than Donald Trump. Are you guys seriously struggling with that?
