Bill Maher cheered California's defiance of Donald Trump's agenda Friday evening, saying the country's third-largest state is asserting its rights over a "white supremacist" government.
Noting that California Gov.
"Now the white supremacists are the federal government, and it's liberal states that are under siege from federal overreach", Maher said.
"Between California's initiatives on climate change and local law enforcement refusing to work with "[President] Trump's deportation squad", the Real Time host said conservatives "can't get mad" because "we're just following in a long and hallowed conservative tradition of states' rights".
"We're trying to defend our way of life here, and what we believe in", Maher explained as he was greeted with a loud applause from the audience.
Maher compared Mississippi's defiance of Attorney General Bobby Kennedy's call for desegregation in the 1960s to states now fighting against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who, among other controversial moves, is attacking affirmative action. "We're the rebels now!"
Maher rattled off a list of liberal stereotypes that Californians are rallying to fight for, from solar panels to gay marriage and transgender-friendly bathrooms. "Well, we got good people here and sometimes we just want to sit on our porch and watch our grass grow".
Bill Maher answered 'yes' to all of them to show that he preferred any of the mentioned above than to have Donald Trump as the President.
"Even if it were a blazer and a pair of trousers", Gunn said, "one does not do that".
Thing is, Gunn said, Vance never visited Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters.
