On Friday night Bill Maher left Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren speechless as he called her Pocahontas to her face.
This happened during an exchange on Maher’s HBO show “Real Time,” when Maher began exploring why the president’s supporters, who are upset with establishment politics, back him instead of progressives like Warren when his administration just introduced a tax plan Maher says benefits only the rich.
“His fans are not with you,” Maher explained. “Explain to me what that disconnection is?”
Warren responded: “Actually, I’m going to push back. I disagree with you.”
That’s when Maher repeated: “His fans are not with you.” He said: “Come on. They don’t like you, Pocahontas.”
After calling her Pocahontas, Senator Warren gave him quite a look and went silent for a long time, while the audience could be heard laughing loudly in the background.
Then she continued: “When you talk about what’s really the basic pieces of a progressive agenda–raise the minimum wage, expand social security, reduce the cost of college so people don’t get crushed by student loan debt, more not less regulation of financial institutions … progressive taxation, make those at the top pay their fair share–America, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, vegetarians, Americans by about two-to-one are with us on that. The progressive agenda is America’s agenda. We cannot forget that, and we cannot apologize.”
“I know, but this is the disconnect I’m talking about,” Maher repeated. “I agree with you. They’re with you on the issues, and then they vote for him.”
“Reduce the cost of college so students are not crushed by debt”
Warren was paid $350,000 for teaching two courses a week at Harvard. Between her professor husband and her income, they approached a million a year as teachers. $981,000 in income from Harvard alone and she wants the government to ease the burden on students. How many students could pay their tuition if she took a reasonable salary for her meager contribution? After all, she is clueless and did not build a single brain cell of knowledge herself.
She also lied about the Indian heritage and was exposed. She has not the character to be a Senator or anything in government.
