Bill Maher, host of the popular HBO talk show, believe it or not, has come out in defense of President Trump saying that the constant claims made by the Biden team are false as he feels as though the president is not responsible for the death toll of roughly 250,000 Americans as a result of COVID-19.
He had a candid chat with Jon Meacham, an advisor to Joe Biden, who appeared on the show and made several claims blaming Trump for the astounding number of deaths.
Meacham made several comments that seemed to poke fun at the press conference held previously in the week by Rudy Giuliani, The President's personal lawyer. It should be noted that Giuliani made multiple claims that have yet to be proven true in regards to voter fraud within the 2020 presidential election. Mecham stated that the leaders of the United States could be described as "incompetent".
Bill Maher was quick to reply by stating that most people are confident and that Trump was not solely responsible for the deaths.
Meacham said, “It’s easy, because it seems so incompetent, to make fun of it, but this is an administration whose fundamental incompetence has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and the most significant weakening of institutions that, however flawed, have produced, by and large, a more perfect union.”
Meacham mocked the press conference last week by Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in which Giuliani pushed so-far unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“It’s easy to be amused by Rudy, but we’re just lucky that our authoritarians are so incompetent,” Meacham said.
“Everybody’s incompetent,” Maher shot back. “It wasn’t just Trump that led to those deaths. He certainly did his part, but we’re an incompetent country.”
“That’s true,” Meacham said.
