Comedian Bill Maher explained in a recent TV show that his calls for another economic recession would jeopardize President Trump’s chances at reelection in 2020 and he described as “very worth” to end Trump policies.
Speaking with journalists Betsy Woodruff and Carl Hulse, and also political consultant Rick Wilson; Maher singled out Fox New’s presenter Sean Hannity who opposes the idea of rooting for a recession, saying he wasn’t a genie and “I do not have this power.” he added “I’m just saying we can survive a recession. We’ve had 47 of them. We’ve had one every time there’s a Republican president,” Then speaking recession in comparison to President Trump’s decision to roll back protections for endangered species he said; “They don’t last forever? You know what lasts forever? Wiping out species!”
The protections for endangered species now permit for economic factors to be weighed before adding animals to the list. The “Real-Time” host blasted Trump over the move.
Bill Maher said Americans have had over 40 recessions throughout Republican Presidencies
