It appears that even HBO’s Bill Maher is starting to question Barack Obama’s abilities as president, for on Friday’s Real Time, the host said, “He doesn’t even know what the IRS and the Justice Department are doing” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
BILL MAHER: In other white powder political news, someone again sent deadly, the deadly poison ricin to President Obama through the mail. These dumb asses. Do they really think Obama opens his own mail? He doesn’t even know what the IRS and the Justice Department are doing. He’s opening his own mail? I mean, I hate to keep, I hate to keep saying that Americans are stupid and lazy, but, I mean, is there any lamer assassination attempt than sending wannabe poison through the mail? What was plan B – hoping Chris Christie falls on him?
BILL MAHER: Gay barriers fell when Americans realized gays are their neighbors, their friends, their family members, their co-workers. Certainly that must also be true of potheads. We all know at least one. In fact, I bet there’s one pothead who you all know. [Displays picture of President Obama] Oh, not anymore. But here he is back in high school where his stoner posse the choom gang posing with a cake that I’m guessing didn’t last long.
