Watch Bill Maher Make a Fool of the Guy Who Produced Obama Smear Film
Dinesh D’Souza, the creator of the Obama smear film 2016, sat down with Bill Maher to discuss the faux documentary. Afterward, I’m sure D’Souza wished he handn’t, because Maher raked him over the coals for pretending to know President Obama’s heart, painting Obama as a partisan, and for D’Souza’s own personal cowardice.
During the interview, D’Souza accuses President Obama of being partisan because the Affordable Care Act didn’t get any Republican votes, but what D’Souza doesn’t say is that a group of Republicans met after Obama’s inauguration, and agreed to oppose any legislation proposed by the new president. Their strategy was to defeat Obama no matter what, the country be damned. Details from that meeting have emerged in a new book, but here’s a summation of what happened, from The Huffington Post:
As President Barack Obama was celebrating his inauguration at various b***s, top Republican lawmakers and strategists were conjuring up ways to submarine his presidency at a private dinner in Washington.
The event — which provides a telling revelation for how quickly the post-election climate soured — serves as the prologue of Robert Draper’s much-discussed and heavily-reported new book, “Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives.”
And, as Maher points out, the bill pushed through by Obama was born at the conservative Heritage Foundation. President Obama’s bill was built by Republicans and thus, already contained mostly Republican ideas.
Maher also brought up how he was run off the air for saying that the 911 hijackers were not cowards, even though he was only agreeing with D’Souza when he said it. The conservative D’Souza didn’t receive any flack for his comments, but Maher’s show was taken off the air. Maher, rightly, used the opportunity to demonstrate how much of coward D’Souza is in real life.
