Bill Maher: Bernie Sanders makes GOP heads explode

Posted on


Real Time with Bill Maher was the Bernie Sanders show on Friday night. Host Bill Maher discussed policies with Sanders, and also unveiled a Sanders translator for unhappy Republicans.

“What happens is Bernie says something, they hear something completely different,” Maher said, after playing a clip of Republican presidential candidate frontrunner Donald Trump calling Sanders a communist.

The sketch then included real clips of Sanders from the Democratic debate, and then a “translation” that was much worse. For instance, on guns, here’s what Sanders said: “Bernie Sanders has a D-minus voting rating from the NRA.” And here’s what Maher said Republicans heard: “Rifles are for men with small penises.”
