Ann Coulter Cancels Berkeley Speech Amid Protests: ‘Free Speech Crushed by Thugs’

21 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“It’s a sad day for free speech,” Ann Coulter said after canceling her planned speech at the University of California, Berkeley.

“Everyone who should believe in free speech fought against it or ran away,” she told the New York Times on Wednesday after conservative groups, including Berkeley College Republicans, which was supposed to sponsor her visit, dropped their support.

Coulter had initially insisted that she would attend the event, despite violent protests, even when the Uc campus canceled her appearance — set to take place on Thursday — amid safety concerns, then rescheduled it for a later date next month, at a time when the campus would be less crowded.

Young America’s Foundation, which was helping Coulter file a civil rights lawsuit against the school, also backed out of the event on Tuesday night, saying, “Young America’s Foundation will not jeopardize the safety of its staff or students.”

In Honor of Earth Day, Bill Maher Asks Americans to Shut up About Mars

22 April 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Today we celebrate Earth Day which is a fantastic time to increase climate and environmental awareness.  Wherever you are, there’s a good chance something local is going on in your community in which you can contribute to the cause.  I happened to attend a Monster Truck Rally today which doesn’t exactly do much for Earth Day but I do plan on recycling the water bottles I drank at the show.  But in all seriousness it’s a big day on the calendar and one in which has risen in popularity over the years.   One guy who’s adamant about the environment is

Bill Maher: Stop ‘Trashing Earth Because We’ve Got Mars’ as ‘Back-Up’ (Video)

21 April 2017 11:10 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In honor of Earth Day, Bill Maher asked Americans to shut up about Mars and how cool it would be to live there and start civilization anew. “This is a dangerous idea that our culture is already too taken with — that we can keep on trashing Earth because we’ve got Mars, this fun new happening spot,” the “Real Time” host said during his HBO show Friday night. “We need to quash this stupid fantasy that Mars is a reasonable planetary back-up,” he went on. “Movies, TV shows, magazines, this constant drumbeat to get to Mars, explore mars, colonize Mars. »

Bill Maher Slams Berkeley for Canceling Ann Coulter Speech: ‘Liberals’ Version of Book Burning’

21 April 2017 9:59 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Although Bill Maher admits that he and conservative commentator Ann Coulter have never agreed on anything, he came to her defense on Friday night’s “Real Time” in reference to an issue that’s “near and dear” to his heart: the First Amendment. “Ann Coulter ran into a little problem this week,” Maher began. “I was the speaker at Berkeley a couple of years ago and they dis-invited me, and they got their act together and I wound up doing it. Apparently, that’s what’s going to happen with her, I think.” Coulter’s planned speech at the University »

Update with video Bill Maher said forget (more or less) Mars. Using a more potent F word, Maher welcomed Earth Day by devoting his New Rules segment to a lambasting of billionaires, news media and Hollywood for presenting Mars as “the party planet right next door.” Earlier: “Everyone has to shut up about Mars and how cool it would be to live there,” Maher said, pointing to The Martian with Matt Damon, the space dreams of Elon Musk and Richard Branson, and President Donald… »

9 April 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sen. Lindsey Graham praised Donald Trump for ordering a missile strike on a Syrian airbase but condemned Bashar al-Assad’s continued use of that base, saying, “Here’s what I think Assad’s telling Trump by flying from this base: ‘F.U.’,” Graham said in an interview with Chuck Todd on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.” “I think he’s making a serious mistake,” Graham continued, “because if you’re an adversary of the United States and you don’t worry about what Trump may do on any given day, then you’re crazy.”   Also Read: Bill Maher Blasts Syria »

Bill Maher: Republican Motto Has Become ‘What Would a D-ck Do?’

8 April 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Real Time” host Bill Maher thinks the Republican party has abandoned all principles since Trump took office in favor of “being a d-ck.”

On Friday night’s show, Maher cited the Gop’s plans to reverse the ban on lead ammunition, which have been known to kill bald eagles (“you know, the symbol of our f–king country, before they were replaced by a trucker hat”), how the Epa approved a pesticide known to cause brain damage in children, and how they abandoned Obama’s deal which forced vehicles to become more fuel-efficient.

“They know carbon is killing the planet but they don’t care,” he said. “Because the main purpose of a car is to piss of liberals. Good gas mileage is for Europeans and lesbians, and a Republican drives a Chevy Suburban and always parks it in a space marked ‘compact.”

Conservatism, he added, is “just about some warped idea that the way to show »

Last night on Real Time with Bill Maher, host Bill Maher slammed Trump Republicans for looking at America’s problems and asking, ‘What would a d*** do?’ Maher pulled no punches as he lost his mind over the nonsensical legislative rollbacks and “d*** moves” of the Gop under Donald Trump. During his wrap up of New Rules, Maher said: “Who the f*** is still in the corner of biggest asbestos in 2017? When was the last time you heard someone say, ‘yeah we just bought a house can’t wait to move in, but not until we install the asbestos!’ Maher speculated...read more »

Bill Maher Calls Republicanism ‘What Would a D–k Do?’ Politics (Video)

7 April 2017 11:08 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Real Time” host Bill Maher has noticed that Republican politics has made a shift in recent times or, as he puts it, “So much of what they have done since Trump took over isn’t moving the party in a more conservative direction. It’s also not a Libertarian . It’s just a dick move.” The liberal comedian’s “New Rules” segment on Friday night’s HBO show had some not-so nice things to say about the right wing, suggesting that “Republicans have to learn the difference between being a conservative and just being a dick.” Conservatism, he says, is “just about some warped idea. »

Bill Maher to Chelsea Handler: ‘Let’s Get Bill O’Reilly Laid’ (Video)

Bill Maher is on a mission, and he’s asked for Chelsea Handler’s assistance. “Let’s get Bill O’Reilly laid; let’s try to reach out to the other side,” he joked on Friday night’s “Real Time.” O’Reilly has been in the center of a media firestorm in recent days, as Fox News ponied up $13 million to settle five sexual harassment settlements against the TV host, who has denied all allegations. That was fuel for Maher’s fire. “Do you have any girlfriends?” Maher asked Handler. “He’s a very successful man, certainly somebody out there »

On the roundtable panel will be frequent guest and political pundit Ana Navarro, an outspoken critic of Trump.
