(Right Country) – Isn’t it hilarious how much the left dismisses any accusations of corruption or potentially violated rights as “conspiracy theory” when it comes from people on the other side of the aisle, but when there’s a president they don’t like in office, everything is a conspiracy?
HBO host Bill Maher, while he’s full of anti-Trump vitriol, is nonetheless not typically hysterical like his counterparts on the major cable news networks.
Sometimes he can even be halfway reasonable, and isn’t afraid to call people out on his own side for political losses or crazy rhetoric.
This time around, however, someone needs to call him out for pushing baseless, absurd conspiracy theories that he surely would have scoffed at were Barack Obama still in office.
On Friday’s episode of his program, Real Time with Bill Maher, the talk show host declared that President Donald Trump will declare martial law if the coronavirus outbreak grows more severe within the United States.
Now, the event of a widespread, deadly outbreak such as the coronavirus is probably one of the very few cases in which martial law would actually serve a purpose.
That’s why it exists.
But of course, Maher isn’t just talking about what will happen if Americans start dropping like flies from the deadly virus and chaos and mayhem break out, forcing the federal government to take such extreme measures to keep the peace and control the virus.
No, Maher thinks that Trump will do so in order to stay in power longer.
“Now since Trump, I think, is not going to leave anyway, might as well run Bernie. He’s not,” Maher said. “And by the way, when the virus gets bad, he’s going to declare martial law. Watch that.”
“That could happen. That could totally happen,” he adds.
In reality, Maher is speaking to the deepest fears of the political left: another four years of Trump.
It’s very unlikely that Trump will lose re-election in November, and the Democrats know this full well, Maher included.
If you thought the last three years were bad, just wait. They’re going to create whatever reality they can in which they can paint Trump’s acquisition of power as illegitimate because they absolutely can’t stand that he won the election legitimately in 2016, and they can’t stand that he’ll do so again in 2020.
Of course, as basically goes without saying at this point, Maher wasn’t the only leftist member of the media to try to bash Trump’s reaction to the coronavirus.
POTUS could reveal that he personally developed a universal cure and they’d criticize his method.
