New York Mets brag about new partner Bill Maher; Twitter backlash ensues

Serial woman-bashing comedian Pig Maher is now a minority stakeholder in the New York Mets. The baseball team made the announcement and posted a video from Maher on Twitter Sunday night. Reaction was fast and furious:

More details via the NYTimes:

“I think it’s a great investment,” Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” said before the Mets’ game against the St. Louis Cardinals. “I just thought it would be a great place, especially after I’ve seen some of the ways money can disappear in recent years. I had my money in Lehman Brothers in 2008.”

According to a sale document presented to potential investors, the limited partners can get their investment back in six years with 3 percent compound interest.

Maher, 56, whose libertarianism and atheistic views are elements of his comedy, would not say whether he had bought a full $20 million share or chipped in with others to buy one.

Whatever the size of his investment, he is the most celebrated person — at least the only one with a TV show — known to have become a new partner in the team with the Wilpon family, who raised $240 million from selling pieces of the team.

“Libertarianism?”

But we digress.

Guess the Wilpon family’s all good with the Mets embracing the Left’s ugliest mascot for misogyny. Flashback via ShePAC:
