Liberal media, double standards; same song, different verse. We already knew HBO promotes leftist propaganda, whether it’s Vice, Bill Maher, John Oliver, or ensuring its Game of Thrones middle-earth soap opera is diverse enough for their woke overlords. When Vanity Fair Contributing Editor (liberal author) Fran Lebowitz stated to Maher’s barking seal audience that impeachment was not enough for President Trump she added that he “deserves to be handed over to the Saudis” to face the same treatment as the late journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was brutally killed and dismembered.
When asked whether she believes Trump should face impeachment, Lebowitz responded: ‘Impeachment would be just the beginning of what he deserves, not even scratching the surface of what he deserves.
She continued: ‘Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think ‘We should turn him over to the Saudis!’ His buddies! The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter [Khashoggi]. Maybe they could do the same for him!’
Imagine anyone on HBO or in any mainstream media saying this about President Obama. What would be the blowback? Would Bill Maher still even have a show? Which members of the White House Press Pool would shout questions about it to the Press Secretary? Would we end up seeing the tan-suited one downplay it at the podium, remaining above the fray of his unhinged critics?
Apparently, the Producers at Real Time were surprised (shocked!) at the social media outrage and during the shows “Overtime” episode informed Fawn’s bereaved sister where she responded: “I regret saying it.” Ok, a good start … that’s almost an apology.
She continued, “I regret everyone misinterpreted it because they misinterpret everything.”
