Bill Maher and Megyn Kelly Argue White People Are Being Targeted
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos via Getty/HBOIt’s no secret that Bill Maher has something of a soft spot for blonde conservative women who traffic in incendiary opinions, viewing them as fellow culture warriors in an ongoing (and inflated) crusade against “political correctness.”For years, the comic has been good friends with Ann Coulter, who’s served as a frequent guest on his various programs, where she’s been treated with kid gloves (despite her oft-racist opinions). And now, he’s repeatedly offered up his popular HBO platform to Megyn Kelly, who was terminated from NBC after defending white people dressing up in blackface on Halloween. During her last Real Time appearance in January of 2020, Maher proclaimed that Kelly was not “really a racist” and blamed “cancel culture” for her firing. His full-throated defense of Kelly failed to mention her long history of dabbling in racism, including her former Fox News show referring to Michelle Obama as “Obama’s Baby Mama”; her odd obsession with the “New Black Panthers” being a tremendous threat to society; her repeated disgust at depictions of a Black Santa Claus; calling a Black teenage girl who was assaulted at a Texas pool party by a police officer “no saint”; and saying that Black communities in America have a “thug mentality.” These are just a few examples of her “mentality” toward Black folks in America.
