Bill Maher on Boston bombing: ‘Your city was not leveled by Godzilla’
On Friday’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, the outspoken HBO host had choice words for Boston, basically pleading with its residents to get over the Boston Marathon bombings since, you know, we weren’t attacked by a fictional mutant lizard that emerged from the harbor.
“I also saw, so the Red Sox won the World Series, congratulations Red Sox,” Maher said to guest Anthony Weiner. “So the parade, they go to the place where the marathon bombing took place, they put the World Series statue there and they sing ‘God Bless America’ and they say ‘Boston strong’ and they chant ‘U.S.A.,’ you know. It was again, a bad day, three people died, that’s terrible. More were maimed, that’s horrible, but unfortunately that happens every day, in car accidents and everything else. I mean, your city was not leveled by Godzilla.”
Though the quip drew a few chuckles from the audience, Maher’s guests didn’t seem too amused. Even the disgraced Weiner stepped up, and replied: “I don’t know… such a nice moment, what’s wrong with you?”
