Bill Maher thinks Matt Damon is a shining example of the absurdity of dragging good people on social media … people, Maher says, who have committed the cardinal sin of confessing their imperfections.
As you know, Matt took fire for using the homophobic f-word to his daughter. He says he was telling a joke and used the word and she schooled him. He went on to say he’s learned never to use the word again.
The ‘Real Time’ host sees it this way “… we could say, ‘Welcome, glad you could make it.’ Or we could say, ‘You came later than I did. Die.'”
Maher then read a series of headlines slamming Damon, to which he said, “Really? … He’s got a clean water charity and delivers food to Haiti. What have you done, Fox headline writer? And yet, he is always getting pulled over by the woke police.”
ICYMI … Damon tried to clarify by saying, “I have never called anyone f***** in my personal life and this conversation with my daughter was not a personal awakening. I do not use slurs of any kind.” The problem … he had said he did use the word when he told his daughter a joke.
Maher ticked off some other instances of Matt getting dragged on social media, and then pivoted to a D.C. remark House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy made about Nancy Pelosi … and he went in hard.
