“It’s over,” Maher stressed. “Can we just say it’s over? I know it was great fun to have a pandemic and order Grubhub every night.”
Liberal talk show host Bill Maher said Friday that the COVID-19 pandemic is “over”, but noted the way Democrats are reacting to that is a “big liability” heading into the 2022 midterms.
“I think how we react to coming out of this is looking like a big liability to the Democrats. I think somehow — sometimes their whole attitude toward this was a liability,” Maher admitted on his show “Real Time.”
Maher pointed to the Democrats’ overzealous fear of the coronavirus as a sign Democrats have taken pandemic precautions too far, citing a Gallup poll showing 71% of Democrats believe that otherwise healthy people should stay at home as much as possible.
“I see people on the street walking outside with a mask on. Like you f*cking moron, I just want to shout at them outside the car, you’re a moron. You never could get it outside, really, and you’re alone walking on the street with a mask?” Maher exclaimed.
“It’s over,” Maher reiterated. “Can we just say it’s over? I know it was great fun to have a pandemic and order Grubhub every night.”
Maher then urged vaccinated people not to “be afraid of the person who isn’t” vaccinated, adding that “somebody is always going to spread something.”
“You can’t just hide forever,” Maher said. “Everything in life is a risk.”
