‘I Can’t Take Being A Hypocrite’: Bill Maher Calls Out Dems Over Environment

‘I Can’t Take Being A Hypocrite’: Bill Maher Calls Out Dems Over Environment

HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher is once again calling out some members of his Democratic Party — namely, the left-wing environmental activists who slam others for their carbon footprint travel habits while flying around the globe in private jets.

During a Friday segment, Maher, who is an advocate for cleaning up the environment, admitted that he, too, has taken private jets.

“My name is Bill, and I fly private,” Maher said. “And so does every other person who calls themselves an ‘environmentalist’ who can!”

He went on to point out celebrities and political leaders who claim to be big environmentalists but who also fly private, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

“All the environmentalists of Hollywood and Washington do it. Their position on climate change is, ‘We must do more to stop pouring carbon into the air, except for me when I want to go somewhere, and then I take a private jet,’” Maher said. “It turns out there is one thing in this world that is completely impossible to resist, and this is it. It’s like heroin. If you do it once, you’ll never stop.”

In addition, the liberal host also slammed Joe Biden’s ‘climate czar’ John Kerry, a multimillionaire who also flies in private jets, saying that is similar to a situation if the head of the Department of Homeland Security “smuggled drugs in his butt.”

“People take jets to environmental conferences. If you could run TED Talks on hypocrisy, you wouldn’t need coal,” he said. “But, sorry, not sorry. I tried to do my part to the environment. I never had kids, the one thing worse for the planet than private jets.”

He also said that zero-emission electric vehicles “sucked” and that people are “full of s**t) when it comes to them pretending to live in a way they claim is good for the environment, according to The Daily Wire.

“And I’m done being full of s**t,” he added. “I can take being a bad environmentalist because almost all of us are, but I can’t take being a hypocrite.”

“So yes, it’s fun to laugh at powerful people,” he concluded. “That’s how I can afford to fly private, but we need to get serious. Really. More nuclear, moving way more money into research and development, I don’t know, but something serious because the real technological problem is the way people are wired. I know it’s easier just to blame Taylor Swift’s plane, but honestly, do you want to be stuck on Southwest with a pissed-off Taylor Swift?”
