Bill Maher roots for a recession: "That's one way you get rid of Trump"

During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, host Bill Maher told his Trump-hating audience and his fellow panelists that he would like to see the economy fail if it means the end of President Trump: “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is to crash the economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”

Fortunately for Maher, Showtime co-host, frequent MSNBC guest, and panelist John Heilemann appeared pessimistic about the economy: “Trump is doing everything you could possibly do to screw up the good economy.”

Heilemann then tried to make the case that Trump contradicted himself by talking about low unemployment while simultaneously complaining that America is getting robbed blind by the foreigners.”
