Taking a giant leap out of character and taking advantage of his place on HBO, conservative guest Bill Kristol shot back, "That is total bullshit!". "They don't really care about the debt that much," Maher said.
"If it was the only thing that movie won, it was gonna win Best Picture," Limbaugh said of the film the day after the ceremony . "What the liberals didn't understand," Maher explained, "is that this not a comment on the validity of the movie -- and I don't like Rush Limbaugh either -- this is a comment on the predictability of Hollywood liberals who conflate a cause with performance."
On MSNBC's "Morning Joe," "Weekly Standard" editor Bill Kristol hammered the Financial Times' Gillian Tett for suggesting the West must find a way to allow Russian President Vladimir Putin to back out of the Ukraine gracefully to appease strong Russian nationalism...
After agreeing that President Barack Obama had failed to demonstrate consequences for aggression in Syria, a Morning Joe panel comprising host Joe Scarborough , Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol , and Bloomberg columnist Jeffrey Goldberg wondered whether forceful actions like the Iraq War had proved a better deterrent against foreign leaders like Vladimir Putin, or whether Putin was in fact taking advantage of America's post-Iraq exhaustion with war.
"The Huffington Post occasionally has celebrities take over our Twitter handle including Bill Maher during the State of the Union," she added. However today many are saying her apology was too little too late.
Maher had originally started the panel segment by arguing that the Tea Party movement started because of bailouts - and was wrong about bailouts. Kristol responded to that point by noting that the Tea Party movement was also "upset at Bush for raising the debt."
During Friday's episode of his "Real Time with Bill Maher" show, the liberal comedian began by condemning the tea party's stance on government bailouts. But Kristol said the tea party rebels against the establishment on both sides of the argument, and was angry with Bush as well.
