He really stepped in it with a lot of his lefty fans tonight. Islamaphobia and misogyny (not directed at a conservative) in one tweet? Unacceptable. You don’t even see conservatives getting this mad at Maher.

Wouldn’t it be something if Maher ended up losing his HBO gig because he offended liberals? Offending conservatives is so much safer.
