Last night on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the host and his viewers were presented with a shocking reality. If Donald Trump steals the election and/or refuses to accept its results, remaining in the White House, we won’t be able to count on the FBI and CIA to intercede.
Bill Maher bluntly asked his guest – ex-CIA boss John O. Brennan – if the country could rely on the U.S. intelligence services (aka the deep state) to remove the current POTUS after Brennan confessed that Trump is “without question” what concerns him most.
“No,” said Brennan. It is crucial that members of the intelligence community remain non-partisan. “And as off-putting and distasteful and awful as Donald Trump’s presidency is, these individuals are not going to violate their oath of office to this country, to the constitution, and they’re not going to get involved in politics,” Brennen declared on Friday during an appearance meant to promote his new book, “Undaunted: My Fight Against America’s Enemies, At Home and Abroad.”
“I agree that Donald Trump is a real aberration and a danger to our country but I don’t look to the FBI and CIA to try to unseat him,” Brennan said.
Later in the show, Maher welcomed his panelists, Daily Beast columnist Keli Goff and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens, leading with: “There’s only four weeks left until the election is stolen. I am very excited.”
Maher compared Trump’s presidency to the 1976 Disney movie Gus, claiming that 45 acts like the protagonist in the film. “‘Too bad, suckers. The rule book doesn’t specifically say the players have to be human. Everyone just assumed that. So f-ck you. We are going to do it.’ That’s Trump’s philosophy on everything. ‘If you don’t specifically write down that I can’t do something, I will.’”
You can watch new episodes of Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday nights at 10PM EST on HBO Max. The late night show was recently renewed for 2 more years at the broadcast network.
