On Friday's broadcast of his HBO show, Bill Maher said Donald Trump calling out President Obama for being more angry at him than the Orlando shooter made "sense" to him.
"Here's the one thing that Trump said this week that made a little sense to me. He said, 'When I listened to Obama today and he sounded madder at me than the shooter.' Couldn't we just address the big elephant in the room, which is the shooter, before we go right to elephantphobia?" Maher asked on Friday's edition of HBO's Real Time
I watched President Obama today," Trump said Tuesday. "And he was more angry at me than he was at the shooter and many people said that."
Panelist Josh Barro tried to explain the logic behind not using the term 'radical Islam.'
"The president's reason for not using the term Islamic extremism is the idea is he doesn't want to give in to ISIS's frame where there is a war between Islam and the West," Barro said. "He doesn't want to set up this situation where 1.5 billion Muslims around the world feel the need to pick sides in a war with the West. The idea is to contain and destroy ISIS without letting them become representative."
