If not seeing the light

At least he is feeling the heat. Bill Maher is coming around. Since last August, he has been saying some downright sensible things: 

And today, we have this from Breitbart:

Maher to Media: You’re Giving Trump ‘the Chance to Play the Optimist,’ and Optimists Usually Win
On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher criticized media coverage of the coronavirus by stating that “nonstop gloom and doom … gives Trump the chance to play the optimist, and optimists tend to win American elections.”

Maher said, “Now that we’re starting to see some hope in all this, don’t hope-shame me. You know, the problem with nonstop gloom and doom is it gives Trump the chance to play the optimist, and optimists tend to win American elections. FDR said, ‘The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’ You know, as full of shit as he is, I could see Trump riding that into a second term.”

And this zinger:

Maher concluded, “We need the news to calm down and treat us like adults. Trump calls you fake news, don’t make him be right.”

Now that will leave a mark. Heh...  500+ comments - good stuff to read there.
