“Don’t sit in a lab coat and say,’Do what we say.'”

In the coronavirus pandemic, Bill Maher, following the advice of Anthony Fauci and other doctors, “don’t wear a lab coat and say,’Do what we say.'” Blindly opposes.

“Medical institutions do have a lot of corruption, but it’s not their criticism that they’re corrupt,” said the “real-time” host. Interview with Deadline Announced Friday, when Fauci, a leading US infectious disease doctor, or a medical institution was asked if he believed he “really knew what they were doing.”

“But I’ve always argued that the big comprehensive theme should be for people to look back and say,’Oh, see how far we’ve come medically.’ Yes, that’s true. We don’t have wooden teeth like we did in George Washington. Of course, there are many miraculous things, such as antibiotics and many vaccines. But in general, we haven’t done so yet. I don’t really understand how the human body works. “

According to the controversial HBO host, the medical community has been “many” wrong throughout history.

“They drilled mercury in my teeth when I was a kid. Of course, we don’t do that anymore, but do you really think people will look back 50 years later? Understand in 2022? Did you? No, they are stunned by what we are doing now. “

With more than 860,000 deaths from COVID-19 in the country since 2020, Maher said he was “not afraid” of the pandemic.

“I was always afraid of the reaction to it, and it turned out that this only proved to be more true to me,” he told Deadline.

“I didn’t think there was such a terrible threat to a healthy person,” he continued.

“Now, some people can’t help their poor health. Of course, you should protect the vulnerable, but it was a very old illness that threatened almost every illness. There are comorbidities, but this is the main. It depends on your lifestyle. “

Of the vaccines, Maher-who Positive test for COVID-19 in May last year -“They only prevent you from dying. That’s the majority. Don’t underestimate it. But they don’t prevent you from sending it and prevent you from getting it. If not, why are we still treating? Is this illness the way we always have? “

COVID-19 is known to lead to serious illness and death even in otherwise healthy young and middle-aged adults, and studies show that most public health professionals are hospitalized or killed by vaccination. It shows that the possibility of is greatly reduced. coronavirus.

Comedians echoed to Democrats and Republicans alike in interviews.

According to Maher, the country is very different from when “real time” was first released in 2003.

“I think the politics around me has changed. In other words, I thought George W. Bush was president for the first few years and the liberal half of the country was pretty sane. What’s happening on the left. There was a real change in the ocean. “

Maher knocked Democrats as “unconventional parties” and said they “reversed much of traditional liberalism.”

However, Maher also aimed to reflect former President Trump’s unfounded allegations that the Republicans are the actual winners of the 2020 elections. December vote Nearly three-quarters of Republicans at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have found that President Biden’s election victory is suspected to be justified.

“Now, I don’t particularly believe in elections, so I always insist that rights are a more dangerous faction in this country, which means we need to keep an eye on elections,” said 66-year-old Maher. Told. “One doesn’t believe in the shape of government we have. What do you do about people in government who don’t believe in the shape of your government?”

Calling the change of power “the wings of our hat as America,” Maher said, “and now these people on the right have broken it, and God knows what will happen in the future.”

“The actual calculation date will be between election day 2024 and inauguration 2025, because it’s when the rubber actually hits the road,” Maher said. I presented it.

Mr. Trump claimed to be “definitely done” and would be a Republican presidential candidate in 2024, and Mr. Maher said the former president would refuse to make concessions, as in 2020.

“But this time, we’ll be deploying people to support his lie that he won the election, whether he won the election or not, and those people are much more powerful, two plaintiffs. What would you do if you were on the throne? “

“That is, this can be seen in other countries, but it’s not pretty,” Maher said. “And I don’t know what will happen, but it scares me a lot.”
