Bill Maher shocked his audience when he announced that he was going to defend Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham against Parkland student David Hogg. “I want to defend Laura Ingraham,” started Maher.
“Now, I think those kids did a great thing, they put this issue in a place we’ve never had it before, and I wish them success. But, you know, if you’re going to be out there in the arena, and make yourselves the champions of this cause, people are going to have the right, I think, to argue back,” said Maher.
He criticized Ingraham for her comment, but then criticized Hogg for his over reaction. “OK, maybe you shouldn’t say that about a 17-year-old, but again, he is in the arena. And then he calls for a boycott of her sponsors,” said Maher. “Really? Is that American?” Maher asked the audience, some people actually shouted back “Yes!” in response.
“He complains about bullying? That’s bullying! I have been the victim of a boycott… I’ve lost a job as a result. It is wrong. You shouldn’t do this by team, you should do it by principle,” said Maher.
“Boycotting is part of free speech. Saying, ‘I don’t want to work with that person. Saying I will not buy a product from that person. That’s speech,’” responded guest former New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer.
“Really? All of the things Laura Ingraham has said over the years, and this is the straw that broke the camel’s back?” asked Maher.
