BILL MAHER: I got crap from both the Left and the Right this week because, okay, let me address the Left first because I found this more disheartening. They were very mad at me because I tweeted that people like Rush Limbaugh, who I absolutely disagree with. I’ve never said a good word about him. I did a whole monologue about what an asshole he was only a week ago. But I said I don’t like it that people are made to disappear when they say something you, or people try to make them disappear, when they say something you don’t like. That’s America. Sometimes you’re made to feel uncomfortable, okay? I mean, can we put this in perspective: no one died. A guy made a bad joke. A bad joke because A, it was a disgusting sentiment that he was evoking, and also because it wasn’t even a joke. He’s a stupid fat f–k who’s not funny and it annoys me that, it annoys me that people who cannot keep two disparate thoughts in their own mind lump me in together with him.
