In tonight’s “New Rules” segment on Real Time With Bill Maher, the progressive host gave liberals the advice they so desperately needed to hear:
“Liberals have to stop trying to win over Trump voters with facts. You’re wasting your breath and you’re going to need it because the air is not getting any better.”
Maher referenced the fact that Trump supporters “aren’t changing their minds because the problem isn’t in the mind. It’s lower. It’s emotional.”
Maher noted that liberals often share information that directly cites Trump’s hypocrisy, hoping that if they “just share this Facebook story about that time that he tried to have lunch with Frederick Douglass or high-fived Stevie Wonder or criticized Obama for playing golf and now he plays more golf…” that they will miraculously reach those people.
But they won’t.
“You’re preaching to the yoga studio,” Maher continues. “The jury is in. He looks and acts like a man who has been painting his face with orange lead for 40 years… He could have Anne Franke’s skeleton in his closet. They’d all vote for him again.”
To Trump’s fans, facts don’t matter, which is why the President himself has such little regard for them. As we continue to fight to make sure the truth is exposed, it is important to remember that some people are not worth fighting to win over.
