Maher: Trump Is Right, We All Profile And Should Do It; "Discrimination Does Not Mean Prejudice"

|

Bill Maher said Donald Trump is right that the U.S. should have a profiling service that uses techniques employed by security guards in Israeli airports. The HBO host also said people already profile and that "all police work is profiling," we just do it "stupidly."


BILL MAHER: He is for profiling, that's what he said. But he said we should do it the way Israel does. And, like, every once in while Donald Trump says something right. Because we profile already, we just do it stupidly. All police work is profiling. Discrimination does not mean prejudice; discrimination means telling un-like things apart...

What they do is they hire really smart people. This is not the TSA, which is just guys giggling at your balls when they're looking -- a screener. If we would pay people $100,000 to do this job, we could get the kind of people who do it in Israel.

And, again, we're just talking about a few questions. We're not talking about the rubber hose or sending you to a black site. I mean, I don't think this is too much of a sacrifice to ask. (HBO's Real Time, September 23, 2016)
