Everyone loves Bill Burr and he tells Bill Maher he’s full of shit

Bill Burr is receiving widespread praise for his harsh criticism of HBO late-night host Bill Maher during a recent exchange about the war between Israel and Hamas and college protests, prompting observers to praise the sharp-tongued comedian for “Closing is something that is incredibly self-important” Maher .

During a recent appearance on Maher’s Club Random podcast, which featured the 68-year-old at present The star smoked pot and drinks while complaining about “woke” liberals with his guests, Burr surprised the host by declaring that cancel culture was “over” and that “no one cares about it” anymore.

“This is absolutely not true, any of us could be canceled in the next two minutes,” Maher exclaimed.

“No. Why? If you don’t do anything, it’ll be like you made this joke about this group of people or that group of people,” Burr replied. “I feel like I’m going to go back two years of my life. “I don’t think about it anymore.”

However, that moment wasn’t the only time the two veteran comedians didn’t see eye to eye.

He complained (again) about pro-Palestinian demonstrations and encampments on college campuses, and grumbled that the demonstrators “belonged to terrorists,” prompting Burr to respond that they were actually “for the Palestinians.” Meanwhile, Maher claimed “it’s about the same reason” before questioning whether his guest supported the anti-war protests.

“I stand with the children,” Burr said, causing Maher to sarcastically say, “That’s easy to say” because “no one wants to see dead children.”

Burr responded dismissively that it was “very brave” of Maher to say that, just for the former Politically incorrect Star for insisting he’s the “really brave person” on the subject.

“Oh, pat yourself on the back,” Burr responded quickly.

Maher went on to assert that although it is “easy to say” that you are against dead children, it is “about hard-line decisions,” which gave Burr an opportunity to question Maher’s supposed expertise on the matter.

“Oh, stop talking like a general!” Burr scoffed, prompting Maher to explain how the war in Gaza would be resolved.

“They are the only country in the world that is under attack, and as soon as they launch a counterattack, it’s like we have to stop this nonsense now. ‘Don’t attack them’ is a very simple solution to all these problems in the Middle East. Stop attacking Israel,” Maher declared.

“You just solved the problem,” Burr responded sarcastically.

And from there, Old fathers The director continued to mock Maher, demanding that he give his “tough call” on resolving the war in Ukraine, asking, “How is the war still legal with all this shit that’s been cancelled?” Maher took this opportunity to lecture Burr on the “real answer” as to why the war is not illegal and what needs to happen to stop Vladimir Putin.

“Sit down and talk it out? Why can’t Putin do a podcast with the main guy?” “As if you just solved the Middle East problem on a podcast,” Burr reacted incredulously. “Why can’t they solve what they’re doing on a podcast?!”

This prompts Maher to smugly tell Burr that this is “not your thing” but “Maher’s thing”, prompting Burr to read him for dirt.

“That’s not your thing.” “It’s not,” Burr responded. “You’re like that guy who has a fantasy football team and thinks he’s a fucking GM. This is exactly what it is. Like, why am I listening to you like you did something?! What did you do in Washington? nothing.”
