Bill Maher called Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas to her face Friday night, and she was left speechless.
On HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the Democratic leader went silent when the host used a nickname often used by President Donald Trump to describe her. (RELATED: Maher Defends Booking Milo: ‘Liberals Will Continue To Lose Elections’ If They React Like This)
“Actually, I’m going to push back,” Warren responded. “I disagree with you.”
“His fans are not with you,” Maher repeated. “Come on. They don’t like you, Pocahontas.”
The Massachusetts senator gave him quite a look and paused for a long time, while the audience could be heard laughing loudly in the background. Warren then continued defending her position.
“When you talk about what’s really the basic pieces of a progressive agenda–raise the minimum wage, expand social security, reduce the cost of college so people don’t get crushed by student loan debt, more not less regulation of financial institutions … progressive taxation, make those at the top pay their fair share–America, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, vegetarians, Americans by about two-to-one are with us on that,” Warren insisted. “The progressive agenda is America’s agenda. We cannot forget that, and we cannot apologize.”
“I know, but this is the disconnect I’m talking about,” Maher repeated. “I agree with you. They’re with you on the issues, and then they vote for him.”
