Welcome to another Asshat of the Week, where I find an asshat and let everyone see their asshattery in full Technicolor. Because asshats literally have no idea that they are asshats; having one’s head up his/her rectum leads to a form of blindness, along with general asshattery. This week’s asshat is none other than Bill Maher.
It’s been two months since the passing of Stan Lee and Bill Maher won’t shut the hell up about it. No, not because he actually cared, but because he wrote a shitty blog post about it, bashing comic book fans. According to him, we’re the reason that the Grand Nagus got elected. Seriously. Naturally, he caught a shitload of heat for his public display of asshattery. But rather than admit he was being an asshat, he doubled down on it. Meaning, he decided to dedicate a segment of his show to this bullshit.
“Bragging that you’re all about the Marvel universe is like boasting that your mother still pins your mittens to your sleeve,” he continued.
“You can, if you want, like the exact same things you liked when you were 10,” Maher added, “but if you do, you need to grow up. That was the point of my blog. I’m not glad Stan Lee is dead. I’m sad you’re alive.”
This is coming from the same guy who nearly strained a muscle patting himself on the back for ‘bringing down Hanrahan’. (He really didn’t; Hanrahan did that shit to himself. He just happened to be talking to Maher.) This same guy claims that he’s not an anti-vaxxer but… Yes, he’s an anti-vaxxer. This is the same guy who had Sam fucking Harris on his show. Yeah, that Sam Harris. The one who wants to profile all Muslims. Again, seriously.
So congratulations, Bill! Your foray into idiocy has netted you the title of Asshat of the Week, along with a nomination for Asshat of the Year. Do you feel honored yet, you smug asshat? I’ll just bet that you do. Best of ‘luck’ to you in December; we’ll see if you can win it.
