“Real Time” host Bill Maher, an outspoken critic of Islam, lashed out at liberals who’ve been angrily “hashtagging” for 14-year-old Texas student Ahmed Mohamed who was arrested earlier this week because his homemade clock was suspected as a “hoax bomb.”
“What if it had been a bomb?” Maher asked during Friday night’s show before sarcastically speaking in the voice of a sympathetic teacher: “Oh wait. This just must be my white privilege talking. I certainly don’t want to be politically correct, so I’ll just let it go.’”
Maher pleaded for the left to exercise some realism and perspective on the issue, noting that ”you can see why they would err on the side of caution. Because only 25 miles away, somebody did try to kill people,” referencing the Draw Muhammad incident in Garland in May.
