HBO’s Maher Aims More Crass Name Calling at Cruz and Trump

Posted on 06 February 2016

On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher repeatedly used crude name-calling to go after GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. After calling both Cruz and fellow candidate Donald Trump a******s in the opening monologue, Cruz was implied to be a "slimy, burrowing, repulsive animal" during a joke campaign ad attacking groundhog Punxsutawney Phil. And, in the regular "New Rule" segment near the show's end, Maher lambasted Cruz for the way he kissed his wife, comparing the Texas Senator to a space alien reptile.
