He tried to appeal to the crowd by making quasi-flattering partisan “us vs. them” jokes, comparing the media elite to the rest of the country.
The crowd was nearly silent in response to his comments. Maher gave up on his routine saying “This is pointless.”
Maher talked about the HBO renewal. He said “Some people like having a feud with their network, but I actually like working here. I don’t understand why other networks don’t adopt the HBO formula — hire people you like and trust and let them do their thing.”
High praise for HBO from Bill Maher indeed.
