Bill Maher Blasts GOP Hypocrisy Over Strike On Syria

Bill Maher said Friday was a day to celebrate for Republicans.
The “Real Time” host said they’d gotten their two favorite things, “a right-wing asshole on the Supreme Court and (President Donald) Trump finally blowing shit up.”
He was referring to the Senate’s confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and Thursday night’s U.S. military strike on a Syrian airfield in response to a chemical weapons attack allegedly ordered by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime.
Maher then pointed out the hypocrisy of the Syria situation, given how in 2013 some 98 House Republicans signed a letter arguing that then President Barack Obama needed congressional approval to take action following a similar chemical attack. Trump, however, did not seek congressional authorization for Thursday’s strike.
“Obama was president then and that would have involved ‘bombing while black,’” quipped Maher.
