Despite Bill Maher’s praise of all things liberal, the HBO host criticized President Barack Obama’s support for military intervention in Syria during his show “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday, saying America looks more like George Zimmerman than the world’s policeman.
Maher has been a vocal opponent of an invasion in Syria, condemning the use of chemical weapons but concluding bombing countries isn’t the “answer for everything.” The HBO host discussed America’s continued arguments over intervention in “yet another Muslim country” during his “New Rules” segment, criticizing America’s always-changing attitude.
“Forget the Syria debate, we need to debate on why we’re always debating whether to bomb someone,” Maher said. “Because we’re starting to look not so much like the world’s policeman, but more like George Zimmerman — itching to use force and then pretending it’s because we had no choice.”
