“Real Time” host Bill Maher gave his approval to the Supreme Court’s expected decision to overturn former President Trump’s voting ban in Colorado, insisting it’s not “the path” to defeat it in 2024.
Maher kicked off a panel discussion Friday night by saying the courts “will be everything in this election” and will ultimately be “the decision-makers.”
He first cited approvingly the federal appeals court’s ruling that Trump was not immune from prosecution in the 2020 election. He then expressed frustration that “we We may not even have the big trial” until November because the courts are “moving too slowly.”
“Then fuck them,” exclaimed Maher.

But unlike many liberals in the media championing Colorado’s cause, Maher sided with Trump.

“First of all, it’s a little unclear whether January 6 was an ‘insurrection,'” Maher continued. “It was certainly a riot.

Maher went on to point out that “half the country” has not been convinced of Trump’s alleged wrongdoing, between the impeachment trial, the January 6 committee and the constant media coverage of attacks on the former president.
“If they do this, if they prevent Trump from running, or if he loses the election because he couldn’t run in two states, this will become the norm,” Maher added.
