As Twitchy reported earlier today, Bill Maher got his facts wrong when he accused Marco Rubio of lying about the national debt.

However, we neglected to point out a second irony in Maher’s tweet. Maher claimed Rubio doesn’t believe in science, but Maher himself holds views about medicine that are … unusual, to say the least:

For example:

New Rule: Anti-science lunatics should stop pretending they know more about science than the rest of us.

    My head is sore from all the times it has hit my desk lately.

      LOL….try not to make sense of Progressives and their ‘facts’….and maybe put a pillow on your desk

      • Lady 12

        Haha, seriously considering it.

    Is there a hashtag? #MaherScienceFacts or something. I need a laugh today!

    New rule: it’s news when Maher says something sensible and it’s not news when he says something stupid.

    • Lady 12

      By this definition, there would never be any news about Maher. Oh, was that the point?

    The science of liberalism?

    Somebody show me all of the towns that are run top to bottom by crooked, America-hating liberals that have had just one iota of success in turning things around. Cause every last one of us know that it’s when Republicans flee a city is when it goes straight down the crapper, not the other way around! Hey Bill ….. that’s real science, not that phony classroom science you liberal elitists draw up on chalkboards, mkay?

    Liberalism is a lie ….. that’s science. Liberalism = Crime and Poverty …. that’s science!

    Maher looks like he could use a few vaccinations! For Goodness sake, man, get some sun…ugh.

    • Lady 12

      I know! He looks like a Black Court Vampire from The Dresden Files, only much more grotesque.

    His is the lunatic science. Is he a homeopath?

    What Maher knows about science is between Jack and crap and Jack, as they say, just left town.

  • Mary Jo

    He was wrong about Rubio maybe but not the other things. Science has nothing to do with the statements he made but rather Big Pharma…and trust me, they are not going anywhere nor are they going broke. Fools on both sides it seems.

    • Matthew Koch

      So science has nothing to do with drug research?

      • Mary Jo

        It has to do with MONEY! Science can be bought for the right price.

  • Dawn9476

    Both sides have people that don’t believe in vaccinations. It’s not a RW or LW issue.

      No, just an irony issue.

    Is it really surprising there are anti-science nutters on both sides of politics? I’m not surprised. At least Maher is just a comedian. Rubio has real political power.
