Comedian Bill Maher has said he believes Rick Santorum is obsessed with gay sex.

The 55-year-old Maher made his comments during an appearance on E!'s late night talk show Chelsea Lately.

When host Chelsea Handler asked Maher who was the most ridiculous of the GOP presidential nominees, Maher answered Santorum.

“Rick Santorum, you know the guy who is obsessed with gay sex. This guy wears a sweater vest everywhere, which is proof he does not have one gay friend,” Maher said.

“Or several of them,” Handler added.

“This guy thinks about gay sex more than any gay man in America. There's a guy down in West Hollywood working at Dorothy's and Dildos who does not think about gay sex as much as Rick Santorum.”

“And [he] also wants to bomb Iran. And I think, you know, people who are sexually frustrated want to bomb other countries.”

“I think this guy is more backed up than the 405,” Maher added. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
