Bill Maher slams ‘entitled whiners’ on left who bash America but stick around anyway

Comedian and talk show host Bill Maher has a problem with “entitled whiners” who bash America but continue to live here.

The host of HBO’s “Real Time” called out politicians, celebrities and those who have “no idea how good they have it” on both sides of the political aisle during his closing monologue.

Maher highlighted complaints from a progressive state representative candidate in New Hampshire who declared, “I need to get the f— out of this country” in a social media post. And he jabbed at former President Trump as well for saying he “could’ve been relaxing in… the south of France” rather than be campaigning.

“Again, I’m confused by this political message: Vote for me because I hate it here,” the liberal host said.

“Now, does America have big problems? Yes. I’ve often cited the ‘America sucks’ list. Things like being 54th in the world in infant mortality behind Cuba, 19th in literacy behind Russia, 72nd in female representation in government behind Iraq, a lot of work to do here,” Maher continued.

“And is it possible for a country to lose itself so much that leaving it is justified? Yes, but we’re not there yet. Not by a long shot. And we don’t need quitters. We need people who will stay and fix it,” he asserted before taking on the perpetual complainers.

“Maybe the problem isn’t that America isn’t worth defending. Maybe the problem is that lots of people today are entitled whiners who have no perspective and no idea how good they have it,” he said as his audience cheered.

Referring to a recent poll, he called out 59% of liberals who admitted they thought about permanently relocating outside of the U.S.

“You want so badly for every immigrant to come to this country and experience the good life but somehow it’s so terrible you want to leave?” Maher asked rhetorically.

He specifically named Cher, Snoop Dogg, Susan Sarandon, Al Sharpton, Whoopi Goldberg, Barbra Streisand and other “liberal celebrities” who “swear they’ll go if a Republican is elected and no one ever does.”

“Miley Cyrus once said ‘I am moving if Trump is my president. I don’t say things I don’t mean.’ Here she is looking miserable having to endure America at the Grammys last Sunday. I guess she flew back from Tajikistan,” Maher quipped to audience laughter.

He continued with a few other examples before highlighting other countries that have nowhere near the liberties Americans enjoy.

“In China, they have the death penalty for almost 50 crimes and in 13 countries, atheism is punishable by death and 61 impose restrictions on women’s clothing so bring a scarf,” Maher said.

“According to Amnesty International, paramilitary groups kill the government’s critics in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and arbitrary detentions are widespread in Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua,” he continued.

“If you’re wondering how that’s just like no cash bail, it’s not. In Russia, just referring to the war in Ukraine as a war can get you 15 years in the fabulous prisons made famous by some of the world’s most famous novels,” Maher explained.

“You think America’s evil because we didn’t nominate Margot Robbie for an Oscar, just wait till you get thrown out the window of your very own dream house,” he quipped before concluding his brutal reality check.

“And for your exile, if you do wind up in some comparatively luxurious place like Canada or Japan or the UK, not that they want you, at best you’ll be trading a bunch of stuff you hate about this country for a bunch of stuff you’ll soon hate about your new home,” he predicted.
