Bill Maher suggests Biden dump Kamala Harris for THIS ‘dream’ unity ticket

Liberal comedian Bill Maher fantasized this Friday about former GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley running as President Joe Biden’s vice president.

During a panel discussion on his HBO show, “Real Time,” he discussed her potential future now that she’s officially dropped out of the GOP presidential primary.

Maher argued that because Haley’s future in the Republican Party is basically moot “as long as [former President Donald] Trump is ascendant,” maybe she should look to essentially joining the Democrats.

“What I could see is [her] replacing the vice president,” he said. “Because she’s just not very popular anywhere. And it didn’t seem to work out. And, I don’t know, that’s been done before on a ticket.”

“I know it’s crazy to think that she could run with Biden, but that’s my dream, a unity ticket. And then he would, I think, definitely win,” he added.

Listen:

Maher’s guest, leftist Puck News correspondent Tara Palmeri, responded to the idea by arguing that Biden choosing Haley as his VP would “literally destroy” the Democrat Party because it’d mean getting rid of current Vice President Kamala Harris, a black woman.

“But she’s a woman of color,” Maher replied, pushing back on the idea that replacing a black woman VP would be such a big deal.

“Yeah, but black women are like the core of the Democrat Party,” Palmeri replied, correctly noting how beholden Democrats are to blacks.

Palmeri wasn’t the only one to respond negatively to Maher’s idea. A whole host of leftists on the social media platform X also cried foul, with some even accusing Maher of being racist for daring to suggest the least popular VP in American history should be replaced.

Look:

This isn’t the first time Maher has called for Harris to be replaced. He in fact said the same thing way back in October of 2022.

“What I could see is [Biden] replacing the vice president because she’s just not very popular anywhere,”  he said. “And it didn’t seem to work out. And, I don’t know, that’s been done before on a ticket.”

“I just think she’s a bad politician. I think she’s a very bright person, but I don’t know — I can see them doing that because a lot of the problem with ‘Biden being old’ is, oh, if he dies, then you’re going to get this person,” he added.

Listen:

During the latest episode of “Real Time,” Maher also suggested that Biden could pick outgoing GOP Sen. Mitt Romney as his secretary of state.

It’d be “something to reach across [the aisle with] so that we don’t live in this world where everybody sees the other side as an existential threat,” he said.
