Whoopi Goldberg unleash harsh criticism on what Bill Maher said in his Real Time monologue Friday evening. “I don’t want to live in your paranoid world anymore — your masked, paranoid world.”
“I’m over Covid,” Bill Maher said last week “I was never scared of it. I was always scared of the reaction to it.”
According to the CDC, more than 860,000 Americans have died as a result of Covid infection, with the majority of them having comorbidities, which was part of Bill Maher’s argument. According to CDC data released last year, 60 percent of Americans have at least one comorbidity.
Bill Maher’s comments in Real Time
Bill Maher said last week, echoing a point he frequently makes on his broadcast. “Some people can’t help that they’re not in good health, we should, of course, protect the vulnerable, but it was mostly a disease of the very old, which every disease is a threat to, and people who have comorbidities, which mostly is due to lifestyle.”
“Now, I’m not saying they deserved to die,” he said “Don’t twist my words, please. I’m just saying that is a lifestyle, you know? So, the fact that America, the medical establishment, never even attempted to get people to live a healthier lifestyle as a response to this pandemic is a giant scandal to me.”
“I don’t want to live in your paranoid world anymore — your masked, paranoid world,” Bill Maher said on his broadcast of the present condition of Covid precautions. “You go out — it’s silly now. You know you have to have your mask, you have to have a card, you have to have a booster. They scan your head like you’re a cashier and I’m a bunch of bananas.”
To amusement from the crowd, he added, “I’m not bananas – you are.”
Whoopi Goldberg Rips Bill Maher
Whoopi Goldberg takes issue with that approach today on The View.
“How dare you be so flippant, man? That’s not really funny to people who have lost their kids or people who have lost family members or dear friends to this,” she stated
“Listen, nobody on the planet really wants to go through this,” she explained. “This is not something we’re doing because it’s sexually gratifying. This is what we’re doing to protect our families. And you don’t have to do it, but stay away from everybody.”
“I want to point out, there are little kids who can’t get vaccinated. Lots of people who cannot get vaccinated, so you’re playing Russian roulette with their lives.”
