  • Bill Maher pushed back against Republicans’ warnings of the rise of socialism in America Friday, pointing to the 2019 World Happiness Report that is dominated by “socialism-friendly” countries.
  • Maher said “we don’t want ‘long lines for bread’ socialism, we want ‘you don’t have to win the lotto to afford brain surgery’ socialism.”
  • The US has seen a resurgence of fear over socialism in recent years that has been encouraged by warnings from conservative lawmakers and media warning of threats that lie in socialist legislation from Democratic lawmakers. 

Bill Maher waved off concerns about socialism as a creeping threat in America and pointed to its potential to improve quality of life for citizens nationwide, dubbing it “capitalism plus.”

On Friday night’s episode of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the host appeared alongside a screenshot of Fox News host Tucker Carlson near the words “The cost of socialism,” similar to the dire reports that often appear on the network to condemn policies deemed “far-left.”
