Bill Maher is pushing back against blindly following the advice of Anthony Fauci and other doctors amid the coronavirus pandemic, saying, “Don’t sit there in your white coat and tell me ‘just do what we say.’”
“That’s not a criticism of them like they’re being corrupt, although there certainly is plenty of corruption in the medical establishment,” the “Real Time” host said in an interview with Deadline published Friday, when asked if he believes Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease doctor ,or the medical establishment “really know what they are doing.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“But I’ve always maintained that the big overarching theme should be that people look back and say, ‘Oh, look how far we’ve come medically.’ Yes, that’s true. We’re not putting wooden teeth in our mouth like in the George Washington era, and of course we have antibiotics and lots of vaccines and lots of other things that have been miraculous. But in general, we still don’t understand too much about how the human body works,” Maher said.
In the interview, Maher said he was “never scared” of the pandemic, but added, “I was always scared of the reaction to it, and as this has played out that only proved to be more true for me.”
Maher continued, “It was never that virulent a threat, I thought, to people who were in good health. Now, some people can’t help that they’re not in good health. We should, of course, protect the vulnerable, but it was mostly a disease of the very old, which every disease is a threat to, and people who have comorbidities, which mostly is due to lifestyle.”
“I mean, 78%, this is just the CDC fact, 78% of the people who died or went to the hospital were obese. Now, I’m not saying they deserved to die. Don’t twist my words, please. I’m just saying that is a lifestyle, you know? So, the fact that America, the medical establishment, never even attempted to get people to live a healthier lifestyle as a response to this pandemic is a giant scandal to me,” Maher said.
On the vaccines, Maher said, “…. if they don’t prevent you from transmitting it and they don’t prevent you from getting it why are we still treating this disease the way we always have?”
“I feel like Covid is still the dominate issue of our lives right now and it should not be anymore. And I think the big discussion on our show Friday night when we go on, is that is should we continue with the Covid policies we’ve had in the past? Or do we have to do a reset, and just say this thing is never going away and we can’t always be living in a state of emergency?” Maher declared.
The interview turned political, as Maher mocked Democrats as “the party of no common sense,” but slammed Republicans as “the more dangerous faction in this country.”
He predicted that Trump will run in 2024, and will become the GOP nominee, but claimed that Trump will “refuse to concede” again.
DEADLINE: So, at the beginning of your 20th season, where do you see America at?
MAHER: Not a great place. It could’ve been worse if the election went the other way. https://t.co/5Yr1MWbYh8
