Liberal Bill Maher Slams Russiagate Narrative: ‘Why Didn’t Putin Invade When Trump Was In Office?’

On Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher slammed the Russiagate narrative, asking, “If Putin thought Trump was really that supportive of him, why didn’t he invade when Trump was in office?”

Maher made his remarks on his program “Real Time.”

Maher: ‘Why didn’t he invade when Trump was in office?’

In his closing monologue, the left-leaning Maher attacked sacred cows on both sides of the political spectrum.

Maher said, “Watching the reactions to war in Ukraine these past few weeks, it’s become obvious that America in this age suffers acutely from a particular disease of the mind, which is: everything proves what we already believed, and everything goes back to the thing we already hate. … So, naturally, Republicans blamed Ukraine on Biden being the worst president ever, and Democrats blamed it on Trump’s being the worst president ever, which he was, there is that.”

Maher then brought up an obvious question few in media would touch.

“If Putin thought Trump was really that supportive of him, why didn’t he invade when Trump was in office?” Maher asked. “It’s at least worth asking that question if you’re not locked into one, intransigent thought.”

Maher: ‘Ukraine is not mostly about your pet grievances. It’s about Vladimir Putin’s, and Putin is bad, very, very, very bad.’

Maher criticized Trump for saying Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was about the supposedly “rigged” 2020 presidential election in the U.S. and also took issue with those who want to tie issues like race, LGBTQ rights, and cancel culture into discussion about the Ukraine conflict.

“Ukraine is not mostly about your pet grievances,” Maher finished. “It’s about Vladimir Putin’s, and Putin is bad, very, very, very bad.”

But fear not – if you thought the left wouldn’t have an answer to Maher’s question, a quick search of social media will show you many variations on this argument: Putin didn’t invade because Trump was doing all of Putin’s bidding! It’s merely happenstance that Putin invaded different countries during the presidencies of George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden – but not Trump:

Another left-leaning comedian, Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show,” argued last week that Saudi Arabia’s reported snub of President Biden would have “never” happened to Donald Trump. 

At the end of the day, can you really argue with results?
