Bill Maher Doubles Down After Brutal Biden Debate Performance: ‘He Is Going To Lose’

 On Friday evening’s episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the liberal comedian doubled down on his recent comments that President Joe Biden is going to lose to former President Donald Trump in November’s election.

“Wow, huh? Huh? Did you see the debate?” Maher asked his audience in his opening monologue. “In case you missed it, don’t worry, so did one of the contestants.”

“All night, confused and halting and trailing off. I’ve seen beauty pageant contestants answer questions better,” Maher added.

Despite saying he would still vote for Biden — even if he were simply a floating head in a jar — Maher reiterated his previously stated belief, now bolstered by the president’s disastrous debate performance, that Trump will defeat Biden in November.

“He is going to lose. I said it nine months ago, I said it tonight. … Now, it seems like it’s so apparent,” Maher said.

Maher isn’t the only one seeing the writing on the wall for Joe Biden. Following Thursday’s debate, numerous commentators in the legacy media were openly discussing the possibility that Biden might have to step down for a new Democratic nominee.

NBC News’ Kristen Welker said Democratic lawmakers told her the race was “effectively over” while others went even further and started to “question what happens moving forward.”


Far-left podcast host Cenk Uygur said that the race was over and that it was a bad idea for Biden to take on Trump. Biden “can’t even talk” or stand there “and look normal,” he exclaimed. “This thing’s a bloodbath. He’s going to get annihilated.”

In the face of the calls to step down, some prominent Democrats are pushing back. Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she wasn’t calling for Biden to drop out. “I don’t know who’s doing that … I’m not doing it,” she stated.

Former President Barack Obama posted on X, “Bad debate nights happen. Trust me, I know. But this election is still a choice between someone who has fought for ordinary folks his entire life and someone who only cares about himself.”

He added that “so much is at stake” in the November election.
