Bill Maher Slams Libs Defending Censorship Of Hunter Laptop: “he was selling the influence of his father, Joe Biden”
Confronts ultra-LIB Rob Reiner: “Is it okay to have a conspiracy to get rid of Trump?”
Every once in a while Bill Maher gets something right. On a recent show, Maher shocked has-been actor Rob Reiner with the fact that the media has finally admitted that the Hunter Biden laptop was not only real but that they buried it to ensure that President Trump was not reelected.
Here at LI, we covered the Hunter Biden laptop story, the media purposefully ignoring it, and Big Tech purposefully throttling it on social media. The latter we’ve since learned occurred because the DOJ and its enforcement arm, the FBI, have determined that meddling in elections to promote Democrats is part of their job description.

Unfortunately, not enough people who might have changed their minds about voting for Biden are plugged into right media, including sites like LI. And obviously, those on the left, like Rob Reiner, have no clue what is actually going on because they live in a bubble that is never penetrated by uncomfortable truths because the legacy media works with and supports Democrats rather than providing information to the public.
Apparently, Reiner had no clue that Democrat media activists have admitted, belatedly (i.e. after the election), that the Hunter Biden influence peddling scandal was real.
This is extraordinary. Maher confronts Klobuchar and Reiner with an undeniable fact and they can’t help but sputter “January 6th!” They’re confirming what we all understand. Nothing matters as long as Trump and Rs are defeated. Whatever it takes. pic.twitter.com/3h6iEjN4pR

Yes, just as the left boasted in Time magazine, there was indeed a conspiracy to ensure that President Trump was not reelected. And part of that conspiracy was purposefully burying a damning story about the Democrat candidate, one that calls into question not only his ethics but his potential as a national security threat.
But having a thoroughly corrupt sitting president who got his 10% as the “big guy” in his son’s pay-to-play schemes with our nation’s enemies was somehow better than letting the people decide whom they preferred to be president. So they hid Biden’s corruption to protect him at the polls.
It’s all thoroughly disgusting, and the involvement of the FBI in perpetrating this fraud on the American people is so far beyond the pale–so unAmerican, so anti-democratic–that it’s almost incomprehensible.
Bill Maher is clearly not comfortable with the media’s role in the conspiracy to bury the Hunter Biden laptop story in order to, as he puts it, “get rid of Trump.”
“Real Time” host Bill Maher blasted the widespread suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential election.
During Friday night’s panel discussion, Maher highlighted the controversial comments made by liberal podcaster Sam Harris, who openly approved of the “conspiracy” to bury the brewing scandal that implicated then-candidate Joe Biden in order to defeat President Trump on Election Day.
“Is it okay to have a conspiracy to get rid of Trump?” Maher began. “They were talking about Hunter Biden’s laptop, which was a story and now all the mainstream press has finally admitted it was a real story. It was a real laptop.”
Maher went on, “Now look, let’s not pussyfoot around this; he was selling the influence of his father, Joe Biden. I mean, most political sons do, but let’s not pretend at least that was going on… so Hunter Biden’s laptop was buried by the press. Even the head of Twitter Jack Dorsey said that was a mistake… So Sam Harris says it was appropriate for Twitter, and the heads of Big Tech, and the heads of journalistic organizations to feel that they were in the presence of something that is a once-in-a-lifetime moral emergency, meaning Trump. So he’s saying it’s okay to have a conspiracy, to get rid of somebody as bad as Trump.”
“It’s a little bit of a thorny question because once you go down this road- this is sort of where we are in this country, the other side is so evil, anything is justified in preventing them from taking office. Is it?” Maher asked.
Reiner sits there in utter shock and rebounds with “But . . . Trump!”
Fox News continues:
Director and liberal activist Rob Reiner responded by completely dodging the question, telling Maher, “You know what’s not justified? Using armed violence to try to kill people in the Capitol. That’s not justified.”
“Answer this question!” Maher exclaimed. “The question is- was it appropriate to bury the Hunter Biden-”
“You talking about the press doing that?” Reiner asked.
He’s saying that’s what they did and that is what they did,” Maher said. “They buried the Hunter Biden story before the election because they were, like, ‘We can’t risk having the election thrown to Trump. We’ll tell them after the election.'”
“And we know for a fact that that’s what they did?” Reiner responded.
Yes, we know that for a fact. The NY Times, WaPo, etc. all admitted it was real . . . after the election.
Needless to say, people had thoughts.
This Bill Maher clip with Rob Reiner and Amy Klobuchar is instructive—replace the Hunter Biden laptop story with putting people in camps or anything horrible the government would do to the Right, and here’s approximate the response you’d get. pic.twitter.com/ewAYTNOkVK

Rob Reiner is stuck in his MSNBC / CNN Bubble. He had no clue the “Hunter Biden Laptop is Russian Disinformation” narrative has been totally debunked until Bill Maher told him on his show this week. Ridiculous. https://t.co/G0qblCt3zy

"Threats"? 🙄 Threats of political repercussions from politically inconvenient facts.
FBI brazenly admits being political campaign operatives is the accurate lede

Here’s the segment:
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Reiner is still Meathead.
Somebody, obviously, does not remember Archie Bunker and “All in the Family” nor the Polock jokes which were all the rage in the early 70’s when the show premiered.
If he father wasn’t Carl Reiner, he would be making change in a self serve gas station right now. Even with the famous and talented dad (did not pass that DNA down), he remains a failure.
Was Bill Maher’s stance the same in 2020?
He is finding his way out of liberalism. He is a libertarian who has drifted but I get the idea that he is on his way to growing past libertarianism.
Don’t be fooled, he’s not
Mahr helped lead the way into this hell we’re in, and how he complains about it.
Right message, wrong messenger.
He’s actually a great messenger, unless you want to keep the story confined to conservative blogs with a limited audience. He has credibility with many young people that conservatives need to get on their side.
He’s also very close to asking the question; is there anything they won’t do to prevent Trump from getting elected?
Not liberalism. That’s Orwellian. The generic term I prefer is Leftism.
Maher has never been anything close to a libertarian (witness his unconscionably rude treatment of Ron Paul when Ron guested on his show), but he has claimed he was. No actual libertarian took his claim at face value.
We have to give people room to change their minds. If not, why are we all wasting our time here trying to persuade? Are we really that insular? That insecure? What is the point of griping in echo chambers?
Oh, I’m not disputing that he may not be changing his mind… just clarifying where it has been that he’s changing it from.
I’m old enough to remember when libertarian = small government and minimal government intrusion and restrictions on personal freedom and liberty.
No way Maher and all the other lefties who in the last decade or so started calling themselves ‘libertarians’ are within a parsec of advocating that. On the contrary, they love big government. As long as it does what they want it to do. The more the better in that case.
I listened to an interview on JRE. Maher is definitely on the left. He is, however, finally realizing what sleeze has entered the party and the government and want’s no part of it.
No. He occasionally wanders off the reservation, but he always returns. Maher will never be anything more than a leftist who occasionally makes libertarian noises.
One of the big stories that gets ignored is how many former liberals are now leading the discussions online. Bill Maher is not alone. Tim Poole and many of his crew at TimCast, David Ruben, Joe Rogan, and several others are scoring big interviews and finding their way. It will be interesting to see if Rob Reiner actually opens his eyes after this. He just had his nuts cut off unexpectedly and he is more shocked than anyone. A learning opportunity.
So many masks have dropped that even liberals are stunned by how bad their team has become and feel duped. We are winning and can prevail if we open our minds and resist the temptation to form echo chamber clubs requiring strict orthodoxies to belong. We need to get beyond the standard politics and reduce issues to basic human decency and values that most of us share. There is an awakening going on and we seem to be sleepwalking through it. There are more of us out there than we realize but we have to be careful how we define “us”.
Next up, Jim Carrey.
Boy your optimistic
Beats being such purist determined to lose by not allowing anyone to change their minds. We’ve been building up to this moment by changing a lot of minds. But now people like you are beating path to losing? Why are you even commenting here?
True and even if the average liberal refuses to see how totalitarian the Democrat party has become we still should resist their tyranny with all of our strength.
Literature is full of stories how average Russians and Germans failed to comprehend the evil of the Bolsheviks and Nazi’s even as the trains were ushering their fellow citizens to the Gulag and Concentration camps.
With Biden’s being so senile he is now openly calling his political opponents fascists. Even though he is a vindictive moron his mental incapacity is helping to completely pull the curtain back on the left’s lust for total power no matter what they have to do to obtain it.
“…..We are winning and can prevail if we open our minds and resist the temptation to form echo chamber clubs requiring strict orthodoxies to belong…”
Well said PP!!
I had a McGovern sticker on my first car way back when, but Ronald Reagan opened my eyes and my mind to a better conservative path in America.
We can’t expect that Meathead is going to be singing along at the next CPAC meeting, but keep exposing the Leftists to a better, more conservative path to follow and trust the
Lord to lead them to a better way. In the mean time, don’t let them stomp on our individual freedoms and get out the vote in November 2022!!
Same here. I was lost before Reagan and how Bush wrecked his 2nd term and then sprayed the WH clean of all things Reagan as soon as he entered is what got me thinking about the Uniparty in the first place. It’s also why I’ve been an unaffiliated independent for most of my years voting.
The role of the FBI has devolved into a DemoncRat KGB. It is beyond its sell-by date and must be abolished.
“he was selling the influence of his father, Joe Biden”
Was? As in previously but not now?
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.
“You know what’s not justified? Using armed violence to try to kill people in the Capitol. That’s not justified.”
Read us off a list of the “arms” seized, Meathead.
Agreed. Killing an unarmed service member is a bit much.
Still no arms seized: Lt trigger-happy got off. Not his first disqualifying fire arms infraction, as I recall.
By any means necessary. I think Bill Maher is getting close to figuring out what that means.
Video was removed, we all know why
Reiner demonstrated himself to be uninformed and unthinking just not on the Hunter laptop issue. So why is he being put on a show for his opinion? Comedy relief springs to mind as does the need to demonstrate the disconnect between the Hollywood types and reality. Myself, I didn’t make it through the entire segment before hitting the stop button.
Reiner is the very personification of the term “meathead,” which is a term for a useful idiot. Reiner was not just typecast, but hired for his meatheadedness, and he’s never done anything of even marginal significance after that.
The market for meatheads is limited to the Democrat Socialist party.
