Comedian and late-night host Bill Maher has some advice for Joe Biden: dump Kamala Harris.
During Maher’s most recent episode of Real Time, he makes a strong push to have Biden drop Harris from the 2024 Democratic ticket; he also doesn’t think Biden is going anywhere.
“Once you have that real estate, and you wake up in the White House, and your office is the Oval, I just don’t think you give it up,” Maher said. “It’s very hard to take away the nomination from the president, a sitting president.”
“What I could see is replacing the vice president,” Maher continued, which immediately sparked applause from his liberal audience. “Because she’s just not very popular anywhere. And it didn’t seem to work out. And, I don’t know, that’s been done before on a ticket.”
“I just think she’s a bad politician,” Maher responded. “I think she’s a very bright person, but I don’t know- I can see them doing that because a lot of the problem with ‘Biden being old’ is- oh, if he dies, then you’re going to get this person.”
“Maher went on to complain that the ‘problem’ for the Democratic Party is that they’re ‘so boxed in by identity politics’ that it’d be impossible for the ticket to not have either a woman, a person of color or ‘a deaf Eskimo,'” Fox News reports.
