Bill Maher explained on Real Time why he would be the Atlanta Falcons’ biggest fan during Sunday’s Super Bowl 51. “[Donald Trump] has made me love the Atlanta Falcons,” the New Jersey-born host said, adding that he “could give a shit” about Atlanta.
“The Falcons are playing a team where the owner [Robert Kraft], the coach [Bill Belichick] and the star quarterback [Tom Brady] all love and support Donald Trump,” Maher said of the New England Patriots. “So I’d really like them to lose by the score of a million-fucking-thousand to one.”
Maher continued, “I love the Falcons! I love their running back, what’s-his-face, and the guy who catches the ball, but mostly I love them because Tom Brady was one of the first to display a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, because America’s been so tough on Tom so far,” Maher said. “And back when Tom was asked if he thought Trump would be president, he said, ‘I hope so, that would be great.’ Hey Tom, fuck you.”
“You’re a great quarterback but your political instincts suck,” he added.
Maher also blamed Trump for ruining a national holiday like the Super Bowl, an event where liberals and conservatives once gathered around the TV in peace.
“He took something beautiful, a game where millionaires give each other brain damage, and made it tawdry and cheap,” Maher said. “I don’t want to make everything political, but that’s where we’re headed. Athletes are refusing to stay at Trump hotels. People are unfriending each other on Facebook. Siblings have stopped talking to one another, which makes it hard to get laid in the South.”
Maher quipped in closing, “For liberals, bringing home a Republican is the new Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Only it’s more like Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and Spending the Whole Meal Bitching About Mexicans.”
