Bill Maher explains why he believes Donald Trump is ‘literally crazy’

Bill Maher is aware that he is appreciated and ridiculed by both the political right and the left. In an interview with CBS News’ “Sunday Morning,” Maher told Robert Costa that he wants to speak on behalf of the “normies” anyway. “I speak, I think, for that vast middle that is closer than partisanship,” he explained. “I don’t want to hate half the country, and I don’t hate half the country either.”

As for GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump? He is “literally crazy,” Maher said.

The conversation largely revolved around Maher’s latest book, “What This Comedian Said Will Shock You.” In it, Costa said Maher said the “left irritates” and “frustrates” him, but that the political right “often makes you worry.” Maher agreed.

“Yes,” he said. “They are very alarming. They are extremely alarming, even more alarming.” To critics who think Maher should focus more on right-wing politics in the US if he is concerned, he said there is one problem: “The truth is not that one-sided.”

“The Democrats are constantly fighting Trump saying, ‘There’s no way you people out there could vote for this guy,’” Maher continued. “And people say, ‘Look at me. Hold my beer. Watch me vote for him again. ”

Instead, the media should focus on Trump’s obvious mistakes, Maher claimed. “We know he’s a liar,” Maher explained. ‘He’s Donald Trump. He can’t help it. He is crazy. I mean, I literally think crazy. I think there is a level of malignant narcissism, which is not just a personality trait. It is diagnosable, and he is suffering from it.”

Maher also said Trump has an “open invitation” to come to his show, despite being repeatedly declined. “I don’t think he really hates me because I think he…the amount of times he goes after me, he watches the show.”

“Accidentally,” Maher continued, “it is always ‘accidental’; he accidentally watches it every week. It is awesome.”

Trump has made a habit of watching Maher’s show — and then complaining about it. In March, he lashed out after Maher devoted a significant portion of his monologue to the former president. “Bill Maher is the worst!” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “He never got it, and he never will. Bad ratings, a major failure on CNN taping, major case of TRUMP-DERANGEMENT SYNDROME.”

He was there again last month after Maher’s interview with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Trump returned to Truth Social and wrote: “I looked at the ratings for Bill Maher’s really boring interview with RFK Jr. for the first time in a long time. last night, only to discover that Junior is much MORE LIBERAL than Maher and in fact much MORE LIBERAL than anyone running as a Democrat, including (Cornel) West and (Jill) Stein.”

“Despite this, he has no hope as a Democrat because they were able to use their typical fascist oppression tactics and throw him out of the party like a dog because he took away the most important votes from the worst president in history. of our country, Crooked Joe Biden,” he added.
