Bill Maher Fools Guests With ‘Racist’ Paul Ryan Quote That Was Actually Said By Michelle Obama

After a short discussion with guests about some controversial statements from Paul Ryan, that some asserted were racist, Maher then read a quote that he falsely attributed to Ryan. He then dropped the hammer by identifying the source: Michelle Obama.

Maher made made the point that black people can say things that white people cannot.

I’m just asking: Is something less true if a white person says it about black people? This sounds even more like, ‘Hey Black people, don’t be lazy.’
Comedian W. Kamau Bell, obviously uncomfortable, responded back:

She’s talking to Black people,” Bell retorted. “We talk to each other differently than we talk to you.”
Typically defending the left side of the aisle, Maher also has a reputation for calling out hypocrisy and double-standards on occasion, no matter who it’s from.

If a hardcore progressive like Maher can reject the notion that any white person with non-leftwing solutions for what’s going on in non-white communities, like Paul Ryan, is automatically “racist,” then what’s other liberals’ excuse for the non-stop race-baiting?

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
