Bill Maher warns fed-up Californians are about to say ‘f—k it to the Democratic Party’

HBO host Bill Maher warned that the recent “exodus” from California amid “Orwellian” Democrat policies could turn the state red.

In an appearance on The Adam Carolla Show on Tuesday, the “Real Time” host railed against failed policies and crippling regulations that have many Californians saying “f–k it” and leaving the once Golden State.

“First of all, we know there’s been an exodus from this state,” Maher said. “That’s partly because of high taxes and it’s partly because fire season is all year round. But it’s also because people can’t f—ing do anything.

“I just read that the cost of building a single unit for the homeless has now risen to $837,000,” he added. “I just don’t think people understand the level of graft that is built into the system, the level of corruption, and that’s what I was getting at when I made that crusade about my solar.”

Maher had shared on his own show last year about his experience on getting solar panels installed in his home which took an outrageous 1,131 days.

“Can you imagine the level of corruption, the level of bureaucracy that I was ranting and raving about this on the air for over a year and they still couldn’t get it done?” Maher told Carolla. “I have a picture of 11 people at my house that finally showed. Eleven people. To turn on a lightbulb, basically, I had to build a shed to house the thing. I had to build its own home. Which could probably house the homeless, people could probably live in that shed.

“All the regulations that, I mean, I don’t know if it’s Orwellian, or Kafka-esque, or both of them, but it’s just strange. Very strange,” he said. “The hoops you had to jump through to do something that the state was advising you to do. Solar power was something – I thought I was being a good citizen trying to hook up.”

Carolla chronicled his own experience, saying there were so many state and county regulations that he said, “f–k it,” and gave up with the project.

“‘F–k it’ is what so many people say about so many things out here,” Maher chimed in, referring to California.

“Eventually what they are going to say is ‘then f—k it to the Democratic Party,” he added. “This is an Achilles heel to this party that they have to come to terms with. I mean, they couldn’t build a railroad, they tried, from L.A. to San Francisco. Same thing with the housing- the homeless thing.”

Maher lamented that there are “just too many people with their hand out.”

“There are too many people who are unnecessary in this equation,” he continued. “This is kind of beyond politics and it will get hung on, deservedly so, the Democrats.

“It’s not like the Republicans are great on this either, but they don’t run the state right now,” Maher concluded. “The Democrats do.”
