Bill Maher just keeps finding new ways to out-pig himself. Only two days ago, he inexplicably lashed out at the Tea Party, branding members as incestuous xenophobes. Today, he’s exploiting the horrific Aurora shooting in order to bash the idea of American exceptionalism and demonize those who believe in it.
His slobbering yes-people chirped their approval:
@billmaher We wish your show was on tonight. Could use your wit. What's your stance on gun control, BTW?

@billmaher Not afraid to tell the truth!

@billmaher OMG Bill, so well said

@billmaher Like drones.

@billmaher "exceptionally bad"-Agreed. U.S. is exceptional at protecting 2nd Amen. "freedom" to liberate me to be free to get shot.

@billmaher So very, very true. Keep the truth coming, Bill.

@billmaher Yeah, we have the fuckball congressman saying handguns would have stopped the aurora shooter. An insult to the victims.

The vast majority of Twitterers, though, were disgusted by Maher’s tweet, and they took him straight to the woodshed:
Leave it to @billmaher to use the deaths of 12 people by a crazy man as an indictment of America and "right wingers" (read: non-liberals)

Typical conduct by @billmaher . Using a tragedy to bash political opponents. Sick man.

@billmaher Your'e stoned bill. There is nothing exceptional about being bad. It's just bad.

@billmaher leftists like u tout situations like this to opportunistically shoehorn an outlier event occurring in America as a systemic issue
— BJ Penn (@Frankie5_Angels) July 20, 2012
@billmaher I hope you enjoy feeding yourself the same shit you shovel out. You're about as exceptional as a puppy's first bowel movement. ?

@billmaher One nut-ball does not change the fact that America and the ideas it was founded upon are exceptional.

Several liberals also refused to follow Maher in lockstep, and they rightly called him out on his callousness:
@billmaher love you bill, but with all due respect this is not the time. I'm really disappointed by this tweet.

Bill Maher is slime, and with any luck, more and more on the Left will begin to see through him. He should be ashamed of himself, though that’s wishful thinking on our part — Maher is evidently incapable of feeling shame. We’ll make it our mission to change that.
