During Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher and his panel aimed their fire at Fox News. Maher described the “primetime people” on the network as “ass-lickers” and pushed a conspiracy theory that Trump had a role in Shepard Smith’s departure from Fox News.  Frequent MSNBC guest John Heilemann recycled anti-Fox News talking points from his colleague Chuck Todd, claiming that the reason that “four in ten Republicans think that Trump did not mention Biden in the Ukraine call” is “because they’re watching Fox News, and they’re watching those ass-lickers you’re talking about. And they’re hearing a totally different version of reality that’s spun out every single night on that network.”
