If you thought Nancy Pelosi stating that Americans getting a tax cut was nothing more than getting crumbs was indicative of how little the elite / liberal left really feel about Americans, Bill Maher has way outdone her. In some kind of liberal logic, Bill Maher has stated that Trump is destroying our democracy so he therefore wishes for a recession in order to remove him. It`s unclear however what he thinks Trump is doing that is destroying our democracy. Is it enforcing our immigration laws? Is it exposing corruption and abuses of power in the upper echelon of our law enforcement agencies? Did he use the IRS to target his political foes as the last administration did? Did he use officials to spy on and unmask people involved in an opposing campaign like the last administration did? Is it wanting people to be patriotic and salute the flag honoring those who have died for our freedoms? Is it growing and strengthening the economy? I`d make a bet that it has nothing to do with his concern for our democracy, but that he is most upset that Trump doesn`t back down to the left.
As far as the economy, the last President stacked on regulation after regulation hurting and killing businesses, then declared in his magic wand speech that the jobs that left were not coming back. On top of this he did his best to ruin Americans financially with his socialist policies, most notably a tax in the form of Obamacare. Despite this America did manage to scratch and claw it`s way out of the 2008 recession. You remember that recession, where the economy crashed, and people lost their businesses and homes. That was kicked off by the failure of Bill Clinton`s Community Reinvestment Act– another democrat socialist policy. Anyway, Bill Maher wants to take us back to that recession. Forget the current record low unemployment numbers for all Americans including blacks and Latinos, the record gdp and stock market growth, the highest consumer confidence in 18 years, the deregulations that have allowed businesses to grow, the tax cuts, and so on and so on. Bill Maher (who is worth millions himself) wants to take all of that away and leave Americans suffering and bankrupt under another recession just because he opposes President Trump. Unsurprisingly, this is the mentality most democrats and leftists in general have. It shows they do not care about Americans of any color or background. They only care about being in power.
