One might expect Bill Maher to rush to the defense of Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg who walked out on Bill O’Reilly when he claimed that Muslims attacked us on 9/11. But no, one would be wrong, as one can see in the following clip from HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher.Actually this isn't too shocking because it's hard to argue with facts and I haven't seen anyone, even on the Left, defend Behar and Goldberg walking off their own show the way they did..
Bill Maher is nothing if not an iconoclast. During the Clinton-era Politically Incorrect he was considered somewhat right-of-center; during the Bush administration he was definitely left-of-center; and now during the Obama administration…well, he just seems angry and frustrated for a variety of reasons. But that doesn’t mean that he can’t still swim upstream, as he does in the following clip.
Maher first brought up the subject of the kerfuffle on The View (as pop culture history books are certain to refer to it) while speaking with guest Al Sharpton. He later readdressed the issue while speaking to his panel of guests, which included John Legend, Markos Moulitsas, and Dana Loesch.. Maher asked “Why is there an outrage? Muslims did attack us on 9/11.”
