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?

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
