Comedian Bill Maher compared America to one huge family Friday night and urged the country to make peace no matter who wins the election, saying “we have to find a way to work together.”
“Let’s not have a civil war with the Trumpers,” Maher said on his HBO show. We’re no good at war and they’re no good at being civil. Let’s skip the civil war and go right to reconciliation.”
Maher, 64, a vociferous critic of President Trump, is also a gun owner and supports the death penalty.
“Thirty-four percent of the voters believe there will be another Civil War within the next five years and I’d like to remind them of one thing: America is a family and the definition of family is people who hate each other without resorting to violence,” he said.
“We have to see each other not as mortal enemies but rather merely as roommates from hell.”
Maher mocked “rich celebrities” who threaten to leave the country but never do and said that citizens who want to divide the country into red and blue states should “shut the f— up.”
“Take it from someone who has traveled this country my whole life: There are no red states or blue states. They’re all like Mitch McConnell’s hands — some shade of purple,” Maher said.
Maher called out Democrats for mostly staying silent despite months of civil unrest and looting this past summer.
“Have we lost our minds?!? Stealing? BAD!” Maher shouted. “No looting the mall and also no Gucci-loafered Republican looters ransacking our government because I know what you’re thinking, Don.
“You lose the election and everything must go! We lost our lease, going out of business!
“Oh yes, you’ll be selling pardons on Craigslist. Jared will turn the Smithsonian into condos.
“You’re going to try to strip this government like it’s an abandoned Range Rover in a bad neighborhood.”
Maher ended his six-minute monologue reminding Americans that they’re stuck with each other.
“So please, whatever happens Tuesday, let’s find a way to live together.
“We have to — because no other country will take us.”
