You know, every once in a while, liberal talk show host and comedian Bill Maher says something that is dead on accurate and something that the media won’t say, but what most of America is thinking.
This week he really nailed it. During “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday, a segment aired entitled “Clown & Country.” Maher talked about how China is winning, and quickly becoming the dominant force in global economics while we [the Americans] worry about Dr. Seuss books and statues.
“You know who doesn’t care that there’s a stereotype of a Chinese man in a Dr. Seuss book? China. All 1.4 billion of them could give a crouching tiger flying fuck.” Maher said.
“On a national level, we’ve been having infrastructure week every week since 2009, but we never do anything,” Maher said. “Half the county is having a never-ending woke competition deciding whether Mr. Potato Head has a d—, and the other half believes that we have to stop the lizard people because they’re eating babies.”
“China once put up a 57-story skyscraper in 19 days. They demolished and rebuilt the Sanyuan Bridge in Beijing in 43 hours,” Maher said. “We binge-watch. They binge-build.”
Nothing ever moves in this impacted colon of a country. We see a problem and we ignore it, lie about it, fight about it. When China sees a problem, they fix it. They build a dam, we debate what to rename it. #SpoilerAlert #WeLost pic.twitter.com/sETFwt7yFT
