Bill Maher predicted that Donald Trump would run for president again in 2024, and that Republican politicians around the country would cause electoral chaos to elect him even if he lost.
Maher told Ari Melber on Tuesday’s episode of The Beat that he is concerned about the flood of Republican candidates throughout the country who wrongly say the 2020 presidential race was rigged against Donald Trump:
“Ok, so this is what Trump has been doing behind the scenes, wanting to put these people in place, because let me tell you something, Ari. On January 20th – my birthday – 2025, he’s going to show up at the inauguration whether he’s on the list or not. He’s going to show up. But this time he’s going to have this army of election deniers that he has put in place. I mean, people don’t slide into authoritarianism necessarily with tanks in the street.” Maher exclaimed.
“This ship of state has hit the iceberg. But we’re still like, acting like it’s normal like they did on the Titanic. ‘Oh, what was that?’ And they went back to drinking champagne. But really, the ship was going to go down.” He continued.
“And then – again – Trump is not going to accept no for an answer. And he’s going to have the people in place this time who will allow him to pull off this coup.” He added.
