Maher Blasts Republicans for Vegas Response: ‘I’m So Sick of Thoughts and Prayers’

Wow. Bill Maher has struck a new low in his disgusting liberal “comedy,” if you can even call it that. On his talk show on Friday, he blasted Republicans for their response to the Las Vegas tragedy where nearly 60 people were murdered and more than 500 hospitalized.

He criticized them for extending “thoughts and prayers” which he claims is the phrase Republicans use to say, “tough sh*t.” Maher said that he is “sick” of that reaction.

He said, “First of all, I’m so sick of all their reactions. I’m so sick of ‘thoughts and prayers,” which was followed by applause.

Not only are his words disgusting but so is the crowd for applauding that.

Maher continued, “Thoughts are the opposite of prayers. A thought is, ‘what should I do?’ A prayer is wishing on a star.”

So prayer is now a “wish on a star” and the compassion extended to the victims and their families should be nixed? Sure. Then the liberals would be crying that we did not wish them well.

Maher added, “Thoughts and prayers are the Republican way of saying, ‘tough shit,'” Maher said. “I hear this a lot this week: ‘What are we telling the children?’ How about, ‘We’re moving to Canada?'”

The Hill reports:

Maher also made fun of top Trump ally Roger Stone’s suggestion that Trump’s base would go “insane” if the president attempted to pass gun control in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting.

“Roger Stone, you know, Trump’s albino assassin,” Maher continued. “He said if Trump even thinks about doing something about gun control, the quote, ‘base will go insane.'”

“How will we know?” Maher joked.

In Trump’s weekly address, the president said that the victims of the Las Vegas attack would “never be forgotten.”

“Among the fallen were young students full of limitless potential, law enforcement personnel, a nurse, teachers dedicated to our children’s future and many others,” Trump said in his address.

Maher concluded, “They were mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers. They were husbands and wives, and sons and daughters. They will be dearly missed, and they will never be forgotten.”

How is his comments of them not being forgotten and other extending their condolences any different?
