Sports commentator Jason Whitlock sized up Bill Maher's recent forays into more conservative territory and predicted that Maher may become even more conservative.
Over the past week Maher was harshly criticized by the Left after he joked about the trans community.
"I've been tracking Bill Maher getting red-pilled for a solid year, year-and-a-half, maybe two years,"
Whitlock stated. "I've always liked Bill Maher cause I thought he was honest; I thought he was smart; and I've been saying ever since Trump got out of office now that he doesn't have Trump to talk about, he's gonna have to deal with the truth, and once he starts dealing with the truth he's gonna figure out how BS the woke is."
Whitlock's guest, sports journalist Steve Kim, joked that Maher might need "extra security"
if he performed at the Hollywood Bowl, adding that Maher deserves some credit "given the fact that the circles that he runs in."
"He deserves some credit, but I also think he's a businessman that has his finger in the air that can see the independent route is the way to go moving forward,"
Whitlock responded. "And so he's started this podcast network of his own - 'Club Random' I think he calls it - and I think he sees that as the future. He wants the same independence Joe Rogan has, Adam Carolla."
"Adam Carolla was on his show this past weekend,"
Whitlock noted, "and so I think he's building his path toward independence and away from the corporate pursestrings of an HBO and any other network. I think he signed a two-year, I think, extension, and I think this is it."
"He hopes that his podcast takes off,"
Whitlock surmised. "Didn't I just see Conan O'Brien just got a deal for his podcast for $150 million bucks? Bill Maher wants some of that type money."
Maher said last Friday on his show, "If something about the human race is changing at a previously unprecedented rate, we have to at least discuss it. Broken down over time, the LGBT population of America seems to be roughly doubling every generation."
The Daily Wire noted, "LGBT activists and hard leftists consider any questions about transgenderism and children to be hateful, even when parents object to chemical and surgical castration of children. Maher insisted that people have a right to wonder what is going on and should not be silenced by accusations from LGBT activists."
"Someone needs to say it: Not everything's about you,"
Maher continued.. "And it's okay to ask questions about something that's very new and involves children. The answer can't always be that anyone from a marginalized community is automatically right, trump card, mic drop, end of discussion. Because we're literally experimenting on children."
