"Bill Maher Defends Rush Limbaugh"

Last night on Twitter, Bill Maher defended Rush Limbaugh and attacked liberals for not accepting Limbaugh’s apology after he spent three days relentlessly attacking law student Sandra Fluke.

Notably, Limbaugh only apologized for “two words,” after attacking Fluke dozens of times. Among those liberals not satisifed with Limbaugh’s apology was Fluke herself, who said it didn’t “change anything.” Dozens of Limbaugh’s advertisers agreed and have announced they are pulling their ads after Limbaugh’s apology.

Here is Maher’s tweet:


Maher comes to the debate with his own baggage. Last March, he used an offensive sexist epithet to describe Sarah Palin. He’s also called Rep. Michele Bachmann and Palin “bimbos.”

Recently, Maher defended his sexist comments, stating “I sometimes called Sarah Palin a bad name. I don’t have sponsors, I’m on HBO.”
