Bill Maher has said Republicans ditched
Michele Bachmann for Herman Cain because GOPers are promiscuous.
The 55-year-old Maher is best known as
the host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher – now in its
ninth season – and Religulous, his 2008 send up of religion
in America. His latest book, The New New Rules, comes out
Speaking with gay glossy The
Advocate, Maher was asked why there wasn't more outrage over
Michele Bachmann and her husband Marcus Bachmann for “going around
bragging about their Christian counseling clinics, which offer
so-called reparative therapy?”
“I think because she fell off the
radar as the candidate,” Maher responded. “She was the
frontrunner. Now it's all about Herman Cain. It's so ironic.
People say the gays are promiscuous. You know who is promiscuous?
The Republican Party! They're fucking a new guy every week. I mean
Trump and then Bachmann and then Perry, and now they're even
experimenting with a black man.”
“I was rooting for her because I
think Marcus would make a fantastic first lady, I do,” Maher added.
