Bill Maher claimed that parents are so afraid of their children being indoctrinated by critical race theory and transgender ideology in American schools that they will vote for former President Trump, despite thinking he is a “creeper.”
The comedian and host of ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’ made the comments during the last part of his recorded post-show discussion entitled ‘Overtime’, which was posted to HBO Max and YouTube on Friday.
During the 15-minute panel, Maher told his guests — country singer Trace Adkins, journalist Julia Loffe and historian John Meacham — that leftist propaganda is so predatory against American schoolchildren, parents will be forced to vote for Trump, if he walks again.

Towards the end of the discussion, Loffe noted that Trump’s negative aspects “were not bad enough for people to stop them from voting for him.”
Maher replied, saying that voting for or against Trump “depends on what your priority is” [is]He admitted, stating, “For me, the two biggest issues are democracy and the environment. Those are my two big ones – one and two.”
He then gave the perspective of parents of public schoolchildren, arguing that many of them would vote for Trump because the threat of propaganda to their children is worse than his shortcomings.
“But I have no children,” he continued. “I know people who say, ‘I have kids, and I don’t like it when they come home and say, uh, they divided the class today into oppressors and oppressed. And if I change gender, I don’t have to parents to tell.'”
“There’s something like this going on,” the host stated, referring to critical race theory and gender theory making its way into public school lesson plans.

He added that it “makes me people go, ‘You know, I agree, Donald Trump is a creep. He’s all wrong that can be put in one man, but I have these other considerations.'”
“That’s all,” Maher declared. He then admonished anti-Trump liberals who refuse to empathize with the perspective he has just given. “And that’s why you seem to have such contempt for half the country. I don’t think that will get us where we need to go.’
The host then commented on the current political divide in America, asking, “I think we’ve crossed this line and now the question is, how can we close it? How do we get back from, ‘I hate you so much that I can’t live with you?'”
“And we have to live together,” he admitted, adding, “This is not an apartment where we can put the tape in the middle. We have to find a way.”
