Bill Maher Skewers Creator of Film “2016: Obama’s America”


Filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza appeared on August 31st’s Real Time with Bill Maher and had his latest film, 2016: Obama’s America, and the justifications for his depiction of President Obama taken apart piecemeal by Maher.

Whether it was D'Souza pretending that President Obama didn't reach out to Republicans on their health care bill, when as Maher rightfully pointed out, it was Bob Dole's plan from the '90's, trying to blame the President for the gridlock in Washington rather than Republican obstruction designed to make sure President Obama is not reelected, to pretending that President Obama did anything much differently than other presidents when it came to stimulus, regulating industry or that he's somehow anti-capitalist, D'Souza just was no match for Maher.

Here’s the video of the interview:

  1. D'Zousa mistake was sharing the stage with this un flushed toilet and a vulgar tool.

    Maher lacks credibility and only appeals to the zealous hateful left.

    He was booted off the air for his remarks but someone must have used CLR and all of sudden he is shiny and new again. Yet he is still using profanity and stinking up the airways all over again.

    1. Perhaps you didn't watch the interview. At the end it's revealed that the remarks that got Maher "booted" off ABC came from agreeing with his guest on that show - Dinesh D'Souza.

  2. Perhaps you didn't watch the end of the interview when the guest said that Maher agreed with him but then Maher took it to a whole nother level. Which is why he was booted off the air.
    Thanks for the video evidence you provided to prove your last statement as nothing but a Maher like response.

    1. Huh? What?
      Please tell me you're one of Romney's debate coaches.

    2. On Politically Incorrect's September 17, 2001 show, Maher's guest Dinesh D'Souza disputed Bush's label, saying the terrorists were warriors. Maher agreed, and according to a transcript replied "We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it's not cowardly".

      Remember that Maher was talking about events and U.S policy (not the soldiers and airmen involved) before September 11. In relative terms, given Dinesh’s comment, where was he wrong?

    3. As I recall that was the same kind of language the right launched against Bill Clinton for "blowing up an aspirin factory" in Iraq.

  3. My God - watch the video again and try to listen to D'Souza in between Maher being a butt head interuptus. Maher is spinning the same kind of crap you are spinning here.
    Listen to D'Souza again or for the first time.

    Really Ken your one sided spin is making me exhausticated.
    Too tired to give a crap with your nonsense.

    1. If anybody is spinning it's you.
      D'Souza proved he was weasel and a tool for a bunch of plutocratic power seekers.

      I can't find any record of him defending Maher like he claimed.

      While you defend him you also probably accept the crap dished by Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a slut, Congressman West saying 86 Democratic members of the Congress are communists, Michelle Bachmann claiming Huma Abedin is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood and Barack Obama is somehow "not one of us".

      If you want to see who has a franchise on hate and cowardice look no farther than people like yourself who lack the courage to use a real name.

    1. And if you had any guts we'd know who was putting in the quarters.

  5. Ken and I agree on politics very rarely, however, to his credit, he sticks to his guns. Granted, there are times that they are cap guns (just kidding, Ken), but he does so, just as my Republican friends stick to their guns.

    I happen to enjoy watching Bill Maher. Why? Because I love to hear all sides...that allows me to make up my own mind, and yes, he has some very good points from time to time.

    Thankfully, Ken is not like my former friend, Butch McDonald, who, on the eve of the election, between him and Jim S. decided that they had "discovered" who was dissing Butch on this site, and encouraged people at the eleventh hour not to vote for me as a result. It's worthwhile to note that not only were both wrong and never apologized publicly to me for their slander (yeah, Butch, I have a copy of the message if you wish for me to have Ken print it), but Jim never "uncovered" the person behind this.

    Why? Because they don't know, just as I don't know.

    When a person like Butch is more concerned about who he'll get elected next time, which has failed miserably, not due to the candidates, but to Butch's two-faced "leadership", is it any doubt that no one gets elected on the "other side"? He and Marketti should form a phony friends group, promoting no one but themselves.

    Both lack guts, but Ken, to his credit, whether you like what he says or not, has the guts to step forward on a daily basis...not concerned with who he "won't get elected" next time.

    Thanks for screwing up the Charter Review Committee's recommendations by waiting so damn long. Yes, I know, you didn't want to ruin your candidates chances. You weren't elected to get others elected, but to do a job. I spent a year on under your "leadership", only to see it gather dust, while you played politics. We have no one to blame but yourself for our recommendations NOT going through.

    I'm so tired of phony people, who are two-faced...so should Southbridge. Your election next year, should you decide to run? I'll be on the "other side", encouraging people NOT to vote for you.

    Your childish methods will come back to bite you, and you have no one to blame but yourself. You're just not as savvy as you think you are.

    Go on, threaten to bring in your lawyer, as you did with Ken, who printed his opinion. Thin-skinned people shouldn't be in public office.
