"Real Time" host Bill Maher closed his show Friday night by begging Joe Biden to not seek reelection, predicting his decision to run will do "great damage" to Democrats and the country as the current president would lose to former President Trump in 2024.
Maher's monologue recapped comments he made on his "Club Random" podcast where he compared Biden to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose decision not to step down during the Obama presidency helped pave the way for a 6-3 conservative majority as she was replaced by Trump appointee Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
"Someone has to convince President Biden that if he runs again, he's going to turn the country back over to Trump and go down in history as Ruth Bader Biden, the person who doesn't know when to quit, and so does great damage to their party and their country," Maher began the monologue.
The HBO star stressed that while he believes Biden can "do the job" as president, he can't "run for it," warning how the campaign season is "long" and quickly pointing out how it "gets icy in New Hampshire."
After listing the president's various accomplishments, Maher told viewers, "There's a term for Joe Biden, but not two."
"To those who say he beat Trump once, he'll do it again, I say things change. They always do," Maher said. "The parade moves on. 2024 is not 2020 in so many key ways, including yes, Biden being four years older. You can be a national treasure and still be too old for the job. If I'm on a plane and the pilot says ‘This is your captain, Buzz Aldrin,' I'm getting off."

Maher, a previous defender of Biden’s when critics have attacked him over his age, argued while “judging by age is wrong” since people age differently, he stressed it’s a “case by case basis” and cited Biden’s recent botching of LL Cool J’s name as proof that it’s “time to go.”
“Say what you want about Trump, but he remembers Kanye’s name,” Maher quipped. “At some point, perception becomes reality. What matters is voters think Biden’s too old. What matters is he’s gonna lose to Trump, who is almost the same age but his age just doesn’t read like Biden’s. Maybe it’s because Trump is insane. Maybe it’s because he’s always a ball of white-hot anger, but for whatever reason, he looks robust. And Joe looks like his own skeletal remains.”
He is scared to stand up for Trump.
This way, the Dem innies can promote a candidate with no bothersome primary vote.
Could take several forms, my guess is to fake a med condition that would take Joe away from microphones and cams. They would act very surprised, of course.
All just my guesses, we don't talk.
I just love Venn diagrams. The Venn diagrams for doing great damage to the Democrat Party and doing great damage to the United States of America and disjoint diagrams. Someone should tell Mr. Maher that one can either do damage to the Democrat party and save the Republic or do no damage to the Democrat party and preserve the Republic.
True it’s not 2020. But abortion is an issue in 2024. Biden is now the incumbent. So he has the advantage.
I’m thinking more of the gestapo in Raiders of the Lost Ark after the Germans open the Ark.
To late, he already has.
Liberals are weak cucks, always to weak to stand up to marxism.
Bill’s afraid of what? secure border, low inflation, no war in Europe ?
Sorry Bill that “you’ll do great damage if you don’t” train already left the station—smoke another joint and embrace the suck.
I don’t understand Maher at all. So ANY OTHER Democrat would be better than Biden? They are all going to be led by the WEF...heck, even all the other Republicans outside of Trump will be led by the WEF. Everyone talks about and “outsider”, but the only “outsider” with the cajones to do anything about the takeover of the world by the WEF is Trump!
Bill has been doing great damage to the country for years by spewing his liberal claptrap.
I love yellow school buses...
The damage will end the day he is wheeled out feet-first from his office, like some decaying waxworks Soviet politburo member, or Diane Feinstein.
Maher kind of gets it now. He’s the MOT who’s figured out where the train is heading but hasn’t figured out yet how to get off.
It’s Now BACK TO TEUMP’S WHEELHOUSE, AMERICANISM VS GLOBALIST MARXISM!
Always busts me up Democrats worried about the country?
They only worry about the party.
like Nazis, Russians, Moslems, and Chinese before them,all
