Bill Maher Links Black GOP Rep Will Hurd to Popeye’s Chicken on Show — But It’s Cool Because Maher’s a Democrat
Far left comedian Bill Maher asked anti-Trump Rep. Will Hurd on his show on Friday night.
Will Hurd is a black Republican representing Texas.
Hurd hates Trump so Maher invited him on.
During the discussion Maher asked the former CIA operative Hurd if he was gathering intel from inside a Popeye’s Chicken restaurant.
It’s a good thing he’s a Democrat.
They can get away with such open racism.
The Daily Mail reported:
Controversial HBO host Bill Maher is facing calls to quit after asking an ex-CIA black GOP congressman if he was collecting intelligence at 4am outside a Popeyes Chicken.
Maher, 63, was presenting Real Time on Friday night when he made the comment during a discussion with Will Hurd, a Republican congressman representing Texas’ 23rd District.
He asked Hurd, who is black, why he is a Republican to which Hurd, 41, replied: ‘I’m a Republican because I believe in limited government.’
‘I’m a Republican because I believe in the rule of law. I’m a Republican because I believe in economic opportunity.’
Maher interjected: ‘They don’t do that. I’m just asking why you’re a Republican? Because they’re not good at the debt, that was their big thing. You said limited government, they don’t do that. They took over the Congress in 2011 and they raised the debt a trillion dollars a year.
‘They’re not good at national defense—the president’s a traitor. What’s in it for you? What is in the Republican Party for you? You were in the CIA!’
Hurd replied: ‘I was in the CIA for almost a decade. I was the dude in the back alleys at four o’clock in the morning collecting intelligence on threats to the homeland.’
To which Maher hit back: ‘That’s where you’d collect it, huh? Wow. By the Popeyes Chicken?’
