Bernie Sanders sat down with Bill Maher Friday night on Real Time, and it couldn’t have been any more real. After informing Bernie that more people searched his name after the Democratic debate than Justin Bieber’s penis, Maher told Bernie he wanted to help him explain to America exactly what the Sanders brand of socialism was all about.
His reason was all the audience needed to go absolutely nuts. Bill Maher endorses Bernie Sanders to win the Democratic nomination and the White House.
To get there, as Maher points out, Sanders will need to find a way to un-demonize the word “socialist” that is so closely associated with him. On the list of people most likely to be voted for, Socialist comes in last, even though Bernie’s brand of socialism is all about universal health care as a right, free public college tuition and increasing social security, not becoming the next Communist Russia.
It may be an uphill battle, but Bill Maher is officially on his side.
