The Hill reports:
Comedian Bill Maher on Friday continued his calls for another economic recession, claiming it would tank President Trump’s shot at reelection in 2020 and be “very worth” ending his policies.
Speaking with a panel including political consultant Rick Wilson and journalists Betsy Woodruff and Carl Hulse, Maher dismissed criticism from people who “get mad” at rooting for a recession, singling out Fox News’ Sean Hannity in particular and noting “I do not have this power.”
“I’m just saying we can survive a recession. We’ve had 47 of them. We’ve had one every time there’s a Republican president,” Maher declared. “They don’t last forever? You know what lasts forever? Wiping out species!”
