Bill Maher: Republicans Are The Masters Of The Are You Kidding Me Candidate
Bill Maher and Piers Morgan sits down to discuss Ted Cruz’s chances of winning in 2016. Piers starts by recalling what Ann Coulter said about Cruz’s chance of becoming president a few weeks ago.
To Maher, the GOP have been masters of the “are you kidding me” candidates. For that reason, Maher thinks that Cruz has a legitimate chance to win the Republican primary in 2016.
Maher points out that the GOP went with Mitt Romney because they didn’t have a Ted Cruz then. He cited that Cruz was a Harvard educated lawyer and definitely going to be hard to beat. Maher and Piers both agree Cruz is the party’s hero and shouldn’t be underestimated.
Piers asked Maher what it would mean to America’s reputation if Cruz won the presidency. Maher replies that we won’t know until he becomes president. He added that he wouldn’t be surprise if it’s going to be Ted Cruz because the Republicans are the masters of the “are you kidding me” candidate, from Ronald Reagan, Dan Quayle, George W. Bush to Sarah Palin.
