Bill Maher has claimed that parents are so afraid of their children being indoctrinated by critical race theory and transgender ideology in American schools that they will vote for former President Trump even if they think he is a “creep”.
The comedian and host of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” made the remarks during the final segment of his taped post-show chat, titled “Overtime,” which was posted on HBO Max and YouTube on Friday.
During the 15-minute panel, Maher told his guests — country music singer Trace Adkins, journalist Julia Loffe and historian John Meacham — that left-wing propaganda is so predatory toward American school children that parents will be forced to vote for Trump. , if he runs again.

Toward the end of the discussion, Loffe observed that Trump’s negatives “weren’t bad enough for people to dissuade them from voting for him.”
Maher responded by saying voting for or against Trump “depends on your priority. [is]. He gave his own, saying: “For me, the two biggest problems are democracy and the environment. Those are my two big ones – one and two.”
He then gave the perspective of parents of public school children, saying many of them would vote for Trump because the propaganda’s threat to their children is worse than its flaws.
“But I don’t have children,” he continued. “I know people who say, ‘I have kids, and I don’t like it when they come home and say, uh, they divided the class today into oppressors and oppressed. What if I change of sex, I no longer tell my parents.'”
“Things like that happen,” the host said, referencing critical race theory and gender theory that find their way into public school lesson plans.

He added that it “makes me say to people, ‘You know, I agree, Donald Trump is a bad guy. He’s got everything wrong that can be stuffed into one man, but I have these other considerations. “”
“That’s it,” Maher said. He then chided liberals opposed to Trump who refuse to understand the perspective he just gave. “And that’s why you seem to have such contempt for half the country. I don’t think that’s going to get us where we need to go.”
The host later remarked on the current political divide in America, asking, “I think we’ve crossed that line and now the question is, how can we go back? How can we go back from “I hate you so much I can’t live with you?”
“And we have to live together,” he admitted, adding, “It’s not an apartment where we can put the band in the middle. We have to find a way.”
