Bill Maher On Syria: “We’re Basically Arming Al Qaeda”
BILL MAHER, HOST OF “REAL TIME” ON HBO: Obama made a speech a couple of weeks ago — remember that speech he made about the War on Terror, that wars have to end? He quoted James Madison. He said, ‘no nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.’ And now we have to get into another one? Can’t we sit one of them out? Does every time the bat signal go off we have to answer it?
KELLYANNE CONWAY, POLLSTER: James Madison was no competition for Bill Clinton. I think Bill Clinton helped goad President Obama into taking this action.
JONATHAN ALTER, AUTHOR: No.
CONWAY: Yes. The red line was crossed, he said.
MAHER: He looks more like a pussy doing it. When a guy says you don’t do something, you’re a wuss and then the next day you do it, it’s like your mother coming to school and beating up bullies.
CONWAY: This is an evil man using gas against his own people.
MAHER: Oh, for fuck’s sake.
