Maher Calls US Military ‘Mass Murder Machine,’ Extreme Muslims ‘Teabaggers’

Posted on 23 April 2016

On his Real Time show on Friday, HBO comedian Bill Maher referred to the U.S. military as a "mass murder machine" as he recalled that the reason he likes Bernie Sanders so much is because the Vermont socialist is the only presidential candidate who would argue against building a bigger military.

A bit earlier, as he discussed with the New Yorker's Lawrence Wright the possibility of Saudi government officials being linked to the 9/11 attacks, Maher also made a crass reference to Tea Party conservatives -- whom he has mocked in the past as "teabaggers" -- by referring to Muslim extremists in Pakistan who want to be able to marry children as "teabaggers" who objected to a "meddling federal government stopping us from marrying children."
