HBO’s Bill Maher said Friday that “all the Republicans these days are treasonous rats.”
“Forget Groundhog Day, the only large, ratlike creature I’m concerned about is Devin Nunes. This guy–his memo got released today. Of course, it’s not fair to single him out, all the Republicans these days are treasonous rats.”
Maher isn’t the only media figure who embraced unhinged rhetoric after the release of the Republicans’ House Intelligence Committee memo that purported to show FBI surveillance abuse.
Donny Deutsch appeared on MSNBC Friday to say that people needed to start taking to the streets against Donald Trump, who he labelled a “dictator.” (RELATED: MSNBC Commentator: ‘People Need To Start Taking To The Streets. This Is A Dictator.’)
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, meanwhile, said, “Let me paint a bleaker picture– it was posited to me from a former national security official, that he next Waco, the next time that federal law enforcement agencies are killed in the line of duty–that’s on Trump.” (RELATED: MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace: It’s ‘On Trump’ The Next Time A Federal Agent Is Killed)
