On “The Rubin Report” this week, BlazeTV host Dave Rubin reacted to a recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher” in which the liberal talk show host tore into Democrats for fumbling the abortion issue by making it about “woke-y” terms like “birthing people” and “people who menstruate” instead of women’s rights.
“And then there’s abortion, a difficult issue for the Democrats to lose on — but they’re trying,” Maher said to guest panelist Andrew Sullivan.
“For decades, liberals have said ‘if only men could get pregnant this wouldn’t even be an issue’ and ‘abortion rights are women’s rights.’ Well, that’s wrong now,” he continued. “When the wokey end of the progressive spectrum talks about abortion now they shy away from that word ‘women’ and prefer terms like ‘birthing people’ or ‘people who menstruate’ because somewhere there’s a trans man who’s pregnant. … Oh, Democrats, let’s take the first f***ing word a human animal understands, mama, and replace it with something best understood by four Trotskyites at Berkeley.”
Maher added, “The wavering voter is saying to her lawyer, the Democratic Party, ‘Hey, I’m so happy for you that you have so many other clients, and that you care so much about their problems and all the pro bono work you do, but you’re supposed to be my lawyer.'”
Earlier in the episode, Maher referenced Johnny Depp’s defamation trial to illustrate the need for “a good representative in court” and compare that to the voters’ need for good representation in Congress — something the Democratic Party is completely failing to provide.
“In the American political system, the people are represented by two separate but equally stupid groups: The Republicans, who normalize constitutional crimes, and the Democrats, who pit identity groups against each other. These are their stories,” Maher said, playing on the opening line to the show “Law & Order.”
