Until the media calls you an “angry white man,” you can’t say for sure how they feel about you. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to come back from the “angry white man” label. And now, it’s Bill Maher’s turn to try.
Poorly-rated, very angry MSNBC host Tiffany Cross spent time on her show attacking Maher, who hilariously mocked Lin-Manuel Miranda’s forced apology recently.
“Please, stop apologizing. You’re the guy who made the Founding Fathers Black and Hispanic!” Maher said to Miranda. “I don’t think that you have to apologize to Twitter! For f— ‘s sake. This is why people hate Democrats.”
On her program Saturday, Cross said Maher has been “wack” for a long time.
“Maybe he said something highly offensive again last night, I don’t know. I stopped suffering through that stale, clumsy monologue and painfully out-of-touch show a long time ago,” she goes on. “But I did see a clip segment of him complaining [about] Lin-Manuel Miranda apologizing for the lack of Afro-Latino representation in his movie In the Heights.”
Here it comes:
“Bill Maher, you do not get to tell people of color what they should or should not be offended by. Stay in your lane, slim. This old, angry white man act is so played.”
Since Maher has been labeled angry, white, and a man — are we supposed to say Joy Reid is an “angry black woman”? Or that Don Lemon is an “angry black man”? I hope not — that’d be unnecessary and racist. But I’m just checking the rules. And if the answer is no, as I suspect it is, why is it okay to label Bill Maher an “angry white man”?
If you know, please clue me in.
It’s great to see Maher bothering the Left these days. Since Trump left the White House, Maher has realized what he had overlooked the past four years: the Left has lost their minds and adopted just an insufferable attitude.
Unless Bill Maher pivots to attacking Ron DeSantis, his MSNBC appearances are likely over.
Thank you for your service, Tiffany Cross:
