Bill Maher criticized Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for pushing "crazy stuff" that other Democrats have to support such as her idea to give a trans youth have veto power on her pick for Secretary of Education.
"Now, Obama said people just don't want crazy stuff. Is this not crazy stuff? Is she running for president of Berkeley?" Maher asked.
BILL MAHER: Why did Bernie outlast Warren? It looked like a couple of months ago like she had -- that was the narrative that I bought into and it seemed like it was playing out on the ground. They're two very similar -- the far-left candidates -- but Bernie was kind of old news, he ran last time. Elizabeth Warren was the new version. People were -- and then it all went around. Maybe it says sometimes it's good to have a long campaign.
People saw Bernie's always the same guy. Elizabeth Warren, who I've always liked, but she kind of like did some stuff I didn't like and today she came out, listen to this. She wants her Secretary of Education to be vetted by a high school student. I'm not kidding. She said a young trans person, I believe in high school.
"I'm going to have a Secretary of Education that this young trans person interviews on my behalf, and only if this person believes that our Secretary or Secretary of Education nominee is absolutely committed."
Now, Obama said people just don't want crazy stuff. Is this not crazy stuff? Is she running for president of Berkeley? ...
I always worry when this stuff happens. I would say there is only two teams now. Everything that happens on the left goes into the "blue bin." You're the party of this bullshit. You might be asked about this. Elizabeth Warren. What if she's the candidate? What do you think... letting a high school student, forget the transgender part, a high school student have veto power over the cabinet? Good idea?
